Shin pain from urban crash - Help
Hey guys so I overshot an urban fence gap by about 20 feet the other day and crash landed on the tails of my skis/ass. My shin hurt really bad from the pressure to my calf I believe, and it took my several tries to get into my bindings because I couldn't push down hard enough. A few days later, I tried to ski up at my local mountain but only took a 3 runs because my shin hurt bad enough that I couldn't put any forward pressure in my boots. It doesn't hurt when I walk, so I assumed it couldn't be that bad.
I've been icing it and elevating it, but there's no visible swelling or bruising. I'm worried when I try to ski this weekend that it will hurt badly again. Have any of you every dealt with this issue? How'd you heal up as fast as possible?

Go to a doctor if its excruciating
Elevate your leg more
Take some advil or some shit
Find some more ice
Use it 30 mins on - 30 mins off
Lay down and stay off your feet
Leave the skiing to the pros for a bit and watch some ski movies
Test your shins in your boot after a couple days
Ice it more if its still hurting
Take tampon out
keep skiing fun
hit that goat semen tonic
shred or die
Sorry man youre out 3-4 months
I'm an asshole

i had the exact same thing from an underrotated front flip. a week of ice, heat, and no exercise, along with better fitting boots did it for me
The same thing happened to me but i could barely stand up and it turns out that I shattered my tibia. That happened in December and today was the first day i could walk. Its not too long of a recovery but it definitely messed up my ski season. Hope you didn't mess up as bad as me but I'd say definitely go get it checked out.
