    2017 Injury Thread

    Don't know if someone started one yet, if so mods can merge. And let me add I hope it is short thread

    Hooked a tip yesterday on Rocket at Camelback and "pitch poled" my self down on top of my shoulder onto a fairly hard surface. Had it checked out by ski patrol and thankfully noting seems broken or dislocated just majorly bruised ( along with the ego). Affected range of motion which cut short my day, but thankfully while sore things seem to be getting better today. Be careful out there.

    We've had snow/sleet/rain here in NNJ. Word from people up at CBK, the same.

    Luckly its minor. Between the weather and soreness skipping today but range of motion is better today and I'm looking to get back at it hopefully midweek.

    Not injured this season but discovered this season.

    My wife actually injured herself at last years AZ Summit skiing down Gondi Line. The binding actually hit her patella and dislocated it and fractured it as well. While she thought nothing of it and rested it for a couple of weeks, she since has been experiencing internal pain. With last seasons extended season, lots of hiking and this season it has become agitated. Now in the throws of this ski season her knee is bugging her more so she went to an ortho and had it X-Rayed where they discovered her injury. She now has to do Physical Therapy to realign the patella but refuses to stop skiing and she does not want surgery. The Doc told her to limit her skiing to groomers. However, somehow we manage to get on bumped up runs or chop and she then pays the price for a day or two.

    My wife had her knee totally rebuilt, mostly skis groomers but will do smaller bumps. She did it over a summer, started PT pronto, and was skiing by next season.

    Cool that she is still out there!

    That is the way to do it! I tore my ACL, had it replaced and recovered during the summer and hit up early season at K town in early November.

    Anyone else ever skied with a broken big toe? Banged mine up a week ago and I'm going to the Dr. today to get a formal diagnosis...still hurts to walk on it, and I was able to get it in a ski boot but it was uncomfortable.
