So yesterday I hurt both my thumbs pretty bad messing with some box tricks. First I took a fall onto one and then onto the other. The thing is I don't even notice that I fell on it until I get up and it hurts like a bitch to move it... Does this happen to anyone else and how can I prevent it (other than not falling lol)
yeah i fucked my left thumb up on a rail today as well, get skiers thumb all the time. i think its mainly just tendon/ligament strain, so skiing without poles or with really short poles on rails helps, but theres no way to avoid it entirely
ive got mega skiers thumb after spending the last 3 months skiing and competing on dryslope. for the pain all i can say is rest and ice. apart from not falling on it, make sure you hold your poles with the straps right as falling with them wrong makes a difference. also if it becomes unbearable you can get fairly low profile thumb splints which you can wear under your gloves to stop it getting worse.
i definitely get this, and it hurts between the two joints farthest away from my fingernail. It really hurts if i press down on my thumb like I'm going to crack it, and it never seems to feel 100% better
OP i was assuming either your poles were to long for skiing park or holding them through the straps wrong. I still get skiers thumb and a have super short poles and no straps, just fell on it wrong a few to many times

i do this all the time! did yall know there is an actaul thing called skiers foot!!! u guys on fts probably wont have it but anyone
who has skied a couple years and a real boot or race boot have it its a small bone protrushion on the outer sides of the feet created by wearing tight ski boots for a long period of time!
it happens to me a lot when I kind of land hard and just kinda slouch forward and hit my fingers on my skis
You cannot help the poor by destroying the rich.
You cannot strengthen the weak by weakening the strong.
You cannot bring about prosperity by discouraging thrift.
You cannot lift the wage earner up by pulling the wage payer down.
You cannot further the brotherhood of man by inciting class hatred.
You cannot build character and courage by taking away men's initiative and independence.
You cannot help men permanently by doing for them, what they could and should do for themselves.”
