Weird pain from ski boot
so last sunday i landed switch in the pipe and got caught up in slush and shit and was leaning super far back. i struggled real hard to stand up and not fall back and then i got this nasty pain where the back of my boots was putting pressure on but its deep inside the leg. its fine for runnign but i cant put it in a ski boot. if i put ANY pressure back in the boot, it has a weird pain but when i do that it also sends a more shocking pain to the area you would get shin splints in. anyone ever have this happen? i think maybe its just shin splints and a bruised+strained inner muscle, but it hasnt really gotten any better in a week. if i go to the doctor theyll just say rest it.
something like that happend to me earlier this season. i went switch off of this backyard rail that i have and landed in really soft snow so my skis stuck in real bad since i didnt pack the landing down at all so i was leaning back pretty far and putting a ton of pressure on the back of my right leg against my boot. so then my muscle inside my leg just had this shooting pain so i ended up falling anyways. it was weird since the muscle wasnt on the outer part of my calf because it didnt hurt unless i put my foot back in the boot and leaned back. it got better in a couple weeks so i wouldnt worry about it too much.
^i feel like your pretty much said word for word what giray said

i think the same thing has happened to me, everytime i land like backseat off a jump, i would get this terrible pain in like the muscle on the side of my leg, like right next to my shin, but not directly on my shin, it was weird, and it hurt for about a week and a half,. Id say just ice and rest for a little while and u should be good.
women, can't live without them and they can't pee standing up
i have no idea what you did to yourself giray, hope it feels better by sunday river, it's too bad that you couldn't ride yesterday, get better man...
thanks. Its not like shin splint pain tho. the thing that concerns me most is the pain behind my calf muscle and how pushing on that hurts the front of my leg. fucked up. and lineskiah11, sounds fairly similar. i hope mine goes away soon.
could of bruised the muscle or something, it will probably go away within a week or two.
if it didn't then I would start to get worried, but only after waiting
dawg thats ski boots. If you have a flex index of over 100 and you ski freesyle thats whatll happen if you tweak it. The pain your feeling is a tendon pushing down on your nerves making like a funny bone effect. Try Snowboarding theres much softer boots
just ice it or go through the pain. you should be fine
I've had that forever. It's from compressing the muscle back there, which squashes and damages it back there. My calfs and boots dont like each other, so I've been dealing with that all season. Hurts like hell to lean back, and reverting makes it ache. I dont have a solution, but I need one...

happens to me after skiing deep pow for a while from leaning back so far.
hmm i had that problem till i took a steak knife and cut off all the muscle in that area...works like a charm and gave my cat a tasty treat....

I HAD THE SAME EXACT THING!! I landed real back seat on a blind 270 out of a down rail, and it hurt so bad. I though it was my calf muscle but the more i felt it, it felt like it was "in my shin" and everytime i leaned back it killed. Then after a couple days it hurt to lean forward aswell. But i took it easy and it went about in about a week. Another thing i noticed which was wierd was that when i wasnt in a ski boot it didnt hurt at all, like you saying. Like i could runa dn just and everything and it felt fine, but as soon as a put on a ski boot it killed to leanback at all. Unfortunatly i dont really have any suggestions to help it. I would just take it easy for a couple days, and try to ice, it should go away

I have the same shit, it makes it where i can only ski like two days in a row and after that the pain is too much.
I think its partially from my shitty ski boots (rossi soft boots) and also landing backseat. If i let it rest like 4+ days, its fine, but one bad backseat landing will bring the pain right back. Keeping your boots super tight seems to help too.
Honestly, I think a solution for me is to get those full tilt boots. I think the flext pattern on my boots is gay so it ends up hurting me.
you obviously are thin/have chicken legs and your unfat legs can't cushion what your ski boots seem to lack. its like an absence of padding. they should solve this like burtoon with OTT padding. word.

I had almost the same exact thing... it happened to me twice 2 weekends in a row both from landing a frontflip way backseat. Basically i sat down for a while and loosened up my boots then after like an hour i could ski, although it still hurt like a bitch. It hurt in the back of my calfs and on the sides of my shins. It hurt all the time sitting down, walking, anything. It ended up going away after a week. Basically don't land backseat and if you do just take it easy and pop some pills... that's what i did at least. I've never had shin splints so i'm not sure if that's what it was or not but it sure sucked.
bruised muscle, like a charlie hoorsein ur leg

what he said^
Basically its like a regular shinsplint, but in the back.
The only thing you can really do is either get some extra padding, or ice everything up
happend to me when i didnt rotate all the way on a front flip it hurts like a bitch mine took like 2 weeks to heal
that happend to be when i landed back seat
