Hi all,

Just got out of hospital since my arms been popping out of its socket alot at work.

Just been put in a sling and wondering if anyone else has had this and managed to still practice guitar. Dr wasn't too sure if I could or not!

I'd type a long witty response but it takes so long to type it's just not worth it.

Which arm is in the sling and are you right or left handed?

If I were you, I would rest your arm for a good while. No point adding to the injury. Once you are healed get back to playing.

Take my word for it... Ive been in and out of hospital due to impatience waiting for injuries to my arms and wrist to heal and subsequently making said injuries worse.
Sat in a lab, curing diseases. They actually LET me play with chemicals!

I broke my wrist fretting wrist one time, and i went to the doctor after about a month of no playing what-so-ever, he put my hand in some gay little wrap up thing and said

Him-"you may not be able to have full funtion in your wrist anymore"
Me-"Can i play guitar"
Him-"Probally not..."

I just laughed at him and as soon as i got home, i ripped that fuker off and started playing

Just to make a long story short, PLAY!
Couldn't fuk yur arm up that much!

Right handed, left arm in the sling.

Practice picking at high speeds, different patterns. Try some complicated right-hand only tapping.

I'm right-handed and I once had to wear a brace on my left forearm, so technically I couldn't even bend my hand to finger anything. I don't know about a sling though.

when i broke my elbow i was in a half cast, i think it's similiar.

i ended up breaking a bit out of it so that i could still hold the guitar, the further down the neck or fatter the strings get, the more it would hurt, but i still did, and now i'm all good.

just don't try anything that feels like it kills you.

Very mixed reaction I'm getting here! Thanks for the advice though. I just got a call saying I have an appointment at the fracture clinic tomorrow so I guess I'll get a more knowledgable doctor there. I'll update you tomorrow if I get the same answer though.

Hi guys, just to update you all, as I know you are all so worried about me and all, the specialist was like a riddle.

Still in the sling, he said to make sure I keep it in the sling (arm not penis) as much as possible, but give my arm as much gentle exercise as possible.

What the christ can you do there then? I asked about playing guitar and he said he doesn't know as he doesn't play himself.

Helpful ay?
