    So I’m 35 and start of the year tried to make a comeback playing soccer, played up until I was about 25 so been about 10 years, never had any injuries all the time I had played but since I’ve been back I’ve torn a calf, was 2 weeks out then a quad was another 2 weeks out, next injury I had was a sprained ankle in the warm up of all things, scan showed a complete rupture of the ATFL. This has put me out now for 6 weeks and I’m just feeling now after all the rehab that I can return to at least training.
    I guess what I’m asking is any of you mid 30’s guys managed to make somewhat of a competitive comeback at this age because I’m beginning to feel if it’s really worth it with all these injuries, particularly this ankle injury which literally couldn’t walk on for a week when I did it. I’ve always been healthy and maintained some sort of strength training program but I have neglected the cardio and stretching side of things,
    Is there any hope at this age or am I just going to stuff my body for later in life

    Interesting thread that I’ve only just come across but would love to hear other people’s views/advice on an old wrist injury I have in which I fell of my bike and hyperextended my left wrist about 7-8 months ago which still isn’t right. I have a constant dull pain in my wrist and every time I move and rotate my wrist it clicks and cracks???

    I’m also still unable 7-8 months to do dumbbell wrist curls and barbell curls due to the severe pain.

    U need an x-ray. You may well have a fracture of the scaphoid. Sometimes after a fracture of this bone it doesn’t heal back together - non union fracture.

    Cheers mate. I just thought I had sprained it at first but think that you’re right about the x-ray or even MRI scan.
