Default Tibial stress fractures... Please help !

Hey guys,

Been boarding since jan, past the beginner stage and starting to ride switch, trying 180s and other basic freestyle stuff.

I live in the UK so most the time I ride an indoor 'real' snow slope.

My knee has been clicking quite a lot recently with minimal ache rather than pain, so organised an MRI scan thinking I may have torn a meniscus. In actual fact I have severe bone oedema, so much so that the radiologist has said there are multiple stress fractures in the proximal tibia and that I should avoid weight bearing exercise for 4-6weeks!! Scanned my right knee for comparison which also demonstrated tibial bone bruising but to a less extent.The doc believes it could be related to my board set up!?!?

I ride goofy -15/15 (aiming for freestyle so I can ride switch just as well)

I have also noticed that my back binding has been coming loose after 2hour sessions on the slope...is that because I am putting too much stress and twisting on my back knee? Should I reduce the back binding angle???

I'm a little worried as I have booked to go to Austria in jan 2013

Any help/suggestions would be great.

Thanks
