old and creaky

February 1, 2012

I think I might need Tommy John surgery. Wait, was that the elbow or the shoulder?

Here at work, we pass the days throwing stuff at each other. See my arsenal?

But when people are hucking these Nerf darts at you at mach one (and they whistle, which has left me with PTSD), there’s no time to stretch. I’ve had to ice my elbow every night for a week.

    get the nerf gun with the multishot, save the shoulder and the elbow. (Tommy John is for the elbow)

    Yeah, you do look a bit stiff-armed in the video.

    See if workman’s comp will cover the surgery.

    Whose desk is that with the plunger on it, yours? I thought this place was a class “A” ?

    I saw you throw. The guns really aren’t that bad by comparison.

  7. Tommy John Says:

    Your mechanics are jacked – no wonder your elbow is sore! You need to be throwing much more over the top, in the video you really aren’t even involving the shoulder, just the elbow. Elevate your hand about 12 inches and you’ll see a marked increase in velocity, accuracy and reduction in elbow pain.
