depends entirely on a)how bad the initial injury was b) how much skiing you did in the hours and days after and c) how well you treat it in terms of ice, rest etc.
Heloo, my name is Shane Mckonkey. I was born in Vancouver Canada, thats aboot three hours north of, ah, seattle.
Right now were here in Bella Coola Canada, and ah, weve been shut in by the weather for like three weeks eh. We havn't shot fuck all. Ooh, Soory.
We've just been sittng around, eating pasta, and spending loonies and toonies on Kokanee and peelers.
But, as soon as this weather clears, im gunna pull on my toque, eat some canadian bacon, and ah, im keen to giver.
I was skiing 2-3 times a week and had it soooooo bad. I finally said riding at 50% a lot is worse than 100% not as much, so I took a week off and just rested em and then had my best day of the whole season just cause I was comfortable and not dreading every landing.
seriously though, some of you assholes are going to get all the way through this before you realize your reading my signature.
"when i was like 10 there was this crazy german sheapard down the street who attacked my cat and ripped its stomach open causing its entrails to spew all over my neighbors fence. I attribute that to why I'm so fucked up now." - Dick-juice.
yea i hear u i got a super bad case luckly at the end of my break 10 days of straight skiing so i rested them for the next weekend still hurt a little bit but nothing bad at all...my friend had a HORRIBLE case of it barely could walk and toughed it out and we had a pow day one day and he just trooped throught it. the worst is when its so good but u cant go to full potential.
anyways for thread creator i would say just rest it up ice if but it wont help that much. but u should be fine for baseball tryouts.
"You put on your boots, click into your bindings, dust the snow off your skis, and head out for the chair, and it doesn't matter that you failed a test, didn't get the girl, or that your life is on a one way trip down the shitter, your world is right for the next couple of hours."
That shit is for life. No not really It'll usually last a couple days and treating helps it heel faster. You can run something hard like a ski pole down your shins to break up the cartilage, or whatever causes it. You have to press really hard, it hurts like a bitch for a while but will get better. Definitely get your boots checked they're probably to big and not a pair of SPK's.
it depends on how bad they are there are a ton fo exercises that you can do in conjunction with iceing and heating, masage therepy too, that really helps to ease pain and strengthen them up so they don't get as bad. i've been dealing with them since before high school. drugs will help too
if they're really bothering you when skiing, i would suggest getting some booster straps. my friend's got them and he never complains of shin bang. My SPK's are also really comfy, and i only remember getting shin bang like once last season with them,
shin bangs is because of a bad boot and of skiing pow with centered bindings and/or leaning to much back when skiing. to get it away just heat the leg up for so cooling it down. it can last from a couple of days to about 1 year i guess, depends on how seriuos it is.
