I am fairly certain that I've strained my right thigh (back leg while boarding), which probably occurred on my first day at Baker the 14th, it felt really sore after that but I just attributed it to sore leg from having to keep the nose up in pow all day.
The second day, this past thurs the 19th at Whistler, I rode hard all day again and forgot to set stance back, and the muscle felt really weird immediately after, and the day after, with noticeable pain walking on it. So I stupidly went up saturday despite this, stretching it out (probably a bad idea) lots and just taking it "easy" - yeah right. Anyone paying attention to the past weeks storm cycle there knows that taking it easy is not an option there currently!
Now I realize there are no doctors on here, and I haven't seen one yet, but based on what googling tells me: Quadriceps (Thigh) Strain Injury
, I have either a grade 1 or 2 thigh sprain.
Anyone had this before ? How serious should I take this, I am of course doing the R.I.C.E for now but my job has me walking a lot during the week and pretty active, so will healing be pretty delayed you think?
I of course realize this is not a sports injury forum, but perhaps some fellow shredders have some experiences they can share.
