How To Come Back From an Injury
Summer of '16 I crashed at 60 mph into some rocks on Hood. Broke my tib and fib + compound fracture and my ankle in half. All of last year I spent recovering and slowly getting back to just the basics of skiing and now I finally feel like I'm back. However I still have this gripping fear of crashing again and re-breaking my leg and never being able to ski again. Does anyone have any advice or knowledge of how I can get back into park? I'm basically relearning everything.
go to a physical therapist who will help with strength and balance conditioning. then just fknsndr
I broke my collarbone last year and after a month i started skiing again but i was too scared to do anything. i basically just started slow and did everything i could where there was no chance falling on it again and then i finally got the confidence to try a real rail trick and i did it then i wasn't scared or worried about doing anything wrong to my collarbone again. I would advise you to just do a trick youre confident in and see if it helps. once you start doing tricks again you stop thinking about it. guessing it probably doesn't hurt anymore since it was a while ago but just be confident in your tricks and the fear will slip out of your mind.
Confidence will come back, but its gonna take time after a traumatic injury like the one you went through. Dont sweat it too much, go out and ski a bunch and you will slowly gain confidence in your self and your ability's again.
GROOMERS. Just going fast and getting your skiing legs back can help out a ton. Being comfortable on you skis is a huge mental aspect.
here MY advice; mind you: this is coming from somebody over the last two years who has a major tear in my left major pectoral, a shattered wrist that required a plate and 7 screws and just recently a major ankle sprain from boosting a little too hard near those slow signs....
Go ahead and reflect on what caused that crash and the decisions leading up to it. Was it that you weren't warmed up? pressure from outsiders?
reflecting on old decisions that lead to injuries are key. i know first hand because my mother told me " dont ride your motorcycle to school" and guess what i did... i rode that shit, and now have a fucking plate in my wrist .
thats my two cents
