I recently bruised the pinkie and ring knuckles on my left hand doing something that had nothing to do with boxing and everything to do with getting pissed and punching a bed. What's the best way to speed up the healing process??

Thanks.

Sorry but bruised knuckles are something u are gonna have to come to accept as a boxer. Theres ways to lessen the pan with extra padding, but it will still be there. My knuckles have stayed bruised on and off for years.. It can ****in hurt like hell just jabbing with bruised knuckles, but gotta suck it up.

My knuckles have never bruised.....i have a bad temper and always end up punching the **** out of walls and hard things and I think ive only bruised my baby finger knuckle on my right hand once and it was only bruised for a few days.

well you could increase the power of you grip so you could close you hands better as well as you bones become stronger there.

i did that and it worked for me i still bruise but it is now less

Honestly, I think mine are, I'm lookin' at them, they look bruised, but they don't hurt at all. I find doin' pushups on the knuckles really toughens them up.

actually, for anyone who may be interested, there is a chinese liniment which specifically deals with bruises and soreness from conditioning. i read in a 2003 issue of boxing monthly that kostya tszyu also uses it in conjunction with his fist conditioning. you might want to google "dit da jow."

i don't use it, so i can't comment on how effective it is. however, it has been around a long goddamned time and is still used widely today.

I fractured a knuckle punching a dresser. At least I put a good dent in the dresser though... that f'er deserved it.
