snowsam17 haha well i went to the docs today and they said i have no tears its most likely a sprain or strain. i cant play lacrosse for a week and my coach wants to kill me considering im the only varsity goalie AND i missed the first week of lax last year from a snowboarding injury too. Im pissed i gotta miss tryouts and my boarding season is definety over . But on the bright side ill get better soon and hopefully there will be no permanent damage.

SB4L Just go ahead and hook up your USB-xray reader to your PC, and scan your knee and send it to us. That should be good enough.

killclimbz Well in my professional medical opinion, it sounds like you need to amputate.

SB4L I think this is a question better directed to a medical professional, as opposed to a bunch of snowboarders on a forum, so good luck with that hope it's not too serious. Where exactly is the pain, like right on your kneecap area, or more to the sides? My buddy had a pretty bad knee injury and it turned out to be just destroyed cartilage instead of ACL, thank god.

Technine Icon That sucks man. Yeah wachusett gets very bumpy towards the end of the day especially in spring conditions.

This Sucks

so after sucessfully not getting hurt boarding through my entire hockey season i went out for some spring riding with a couple of friends at wachusett yesterday. We spent the entire morning in the park, where i am still a beginner, and i felt really solid. I was landing jumps clean for the first time, and doing solid on some rails as well. So before lunch we decide to do a few speed runs down the mountain. Now this is the aspect of riding where i feel really comfortable. Stuff in the park scares me, but i have no second thoughts about going lightspeed. First run down i beat all my friends and feel really solid. Snow was a bit lumpy but i wasnt fazed. Second ride down dfferent trail was a bit icy at the top but then got more slushy. I ended up lagging a bit behind my friends and in my eagerness to catch up i really let loose. There is a section at the end of the trail where it gets a bit steeper, just enough so you cant really see whats ahead of you. I come charging over this in mid-heelside turn and voila, there is a nice lump of snow with a hunk of ice in it that the nose of my board goes straight into. Catch my front edge, fly forward, and land on my face. I was wearing a helmet, but i got some snowburn/bruises on my face. I figure thats the worst of it and im fine, so i ride down.

When i got to the bottom, i realize that my knee hurt. It wasnt too painful, felt more like i needed to crack it but couldnt. I figure it will go away so i catch the lift back up with my friends. Get to the top and go to turn heelside off the lift and get a sudden jolt of pain in my knee. I strap in and start to go and realize i cant turn heelside without a lot of pain. Toeside is fine. Get to the bottom quite slowly and go in for lunch, hoping it will go away. It didnt when i tried to ride again after lunch. I can bend my knee fine and without pain, but as soon as i strighten it past a certain point with weight on it i get shooting pain and it basically gives. I was told this is acl pain Hoped it would go away by this morning but no luck. I realized that without weigh on it i physically cannot fully strighten my leg. It doesnt hurt when i try i just cant do it. I can walk with a limp pain-free keeping my hurt knee bent. Im gonna go to the doctors tomorrow. I feel like i would be in more pain if i had torn anything so im hoping i just strained it / is that even possible? Has anyone experienced anything similar? Lacrosse starts tomorrow, im the only goalie in the program and i need to play... even if i cant run. fuck
