SendyMcSendyfaceJust found out today that I have shin splints. Sunday I start my new job. As an instructor. Have any of you guys skied with shin splints? Is it doable, or should I just quit my job and give up this season?
The.Fishthere is a difference between shin bang and shin splints. Shin bang is when the front of your shin is brusied because you have loose boots and / or land backseat a lot.
skiermanWow, who knew you could provide so much mis-information in two sentences. Saying shin bang is when you bruise your shin because you lean back makes no sense.
In reality shin bang happens when you lean back because you're stressing the muscles/tendons around your shin bone and in very rare bad cases can cause stress on the bone itself. You don't actually "bang" your shin and get shin bang, you stupid child.
Moral of the story, don't ski like an idiot but being a ski instructor, you may have already realized this.
