most skiers will probaly get fucked knees, but is any one eles anckles, backs, hips ect fucked without ever injuring them?, just wondering coz i spend alot of time on dryslope which is shit loads worse for u coz there always badly built and its reely repetitive and ive got reely stiff hips even though i always strech them and my ankels are magorly fucked i cant walk two steps without them crunching or cracking. anyone eles get the same?. lol sorry for the reely depressing/moany thread.
my knees seem to be pretty much fine but i get stingers in them every now and then...mostly my back because the shit snow we have out here means you take a lot of hits landing switch and then catching an edge in slush/ice
so yeah, my back and my head (from getting whapped on the deck a bunch of times)
i also have had reconstructive surgery on my shoulder because ive dislocated it a couple hundred times. it started as a surfing/skim-boarding accident (busted it twice in one day over the summer my senior year in HS) and since then ive popped it out doing pretty much everything you can think of, even when im driving and sleeping.
it's been 3 years since then and i got it fixed once, but i popped it out again on a really bootleg fall jib setup...i was sooooooo pissed about it because rehab took forever after my surgery. we constructed the drop-in and box line in the backyard of this college apartment and there was a party going on so a lot of people were hanging out and watching. everybody was cool and had tons of respect for us even trying to hit this particular setup, so i got tons of free drinks that night from people who saw me eat shit.

my feet are flat, my knees are shot, my hips are a little messed, and my neck hurts all the time cause i hurt it on a trampoline and it wont ever go away. i stretch it constantly and now theres a knotted up ball of muscle sticking out that hurts. i cant go up stairs without pain in my knees cause theres so much shit floating around in there. oh and i broke my wrist this summer and it took 5 months to heal, i broke my hand one bone in 3 places, and broke my hand a separate time. yes were all fucked up.
i hurt my heel skateboarding like 3 months ago, it sucks. My back hurts from jumping on the trampoline and freestyle walking all the time, but nothing on snow, because snow is only like 4 months a year. i dont no about my knees tho, do you think jumping on the trampoline builds knee and back strenght?

well probably everyone here skiing had some knee, back, ankle problem. alot of skier need to have their knee rebuilt at age like 20-25 which is completely crazy. it suck but when you really love the sport, it hard to stop.
i normally just have sore muscles after skiing, nothing that mad, but royally fucked up my ankle skateboarding, when ever i jump over a foot and land my foot goes all pins and needles shit its kinda cool feeling, but its my entire foot which scares me

my left ankle cracks when i walk....but its not from skiing, tho skiing makes it worse...esp when it has to crack and cant in my boots, thats a really weird feeling. apparently i broke my ankle when i was younger and dindt know it and never got it fixed properly. go see an orthopedic and see they can tell you anything....mine told me there was nothing i could do, but maybe they will tell you something diff.
WayBackMachine u fucking rock ahahaha. My hips and ankles crack but u all have got to do some YOGA, it is the fukin best thing to do, I couldnt crouch on my knees before either but now all the way and now its almost imposible to get injured and nothing hurts, my back got straighten up like miracle with it. Besides u improve like 30% your skiing and mostly any sport u do, u gain control of your body, equilibrium and flexibility, and lots of energy, and sex performance.....
My knees are the main problem, my back sometimes get strained from sports like rugby. My right ankle's been weird after landing a bit funny off a cliff last year, like, if I push both shins forward (or pull both feet back), the right ankle joint will start hurting.
