Knee pain of DOOM!
Back story:
I went to my local resort riding the park.
I see a gateway box, except the middle part was raised a little more than usual.
Long story short the inner area of my knee got banged and ended up with a bone bruise :(

A little over a month later, I'm riding like my usual self, hitting the parks and my knee being nice and painless.

Recently, I hit a tabletop and did a 360. I was inches away from clearing the knuckle and when I landed, WOW did my knee start hurting again...
As soon as I landed I was in so much pain I couldn't finish my FUUUUUUUUU-----
Gonna check out my knee again at my school hospital :(

Has this happened to anyone else here??

you probably just strained your knee... you might have a chipped bone somewhere in your knee... my friend banged his knee... ignored it... then a few weeks later he couldnt walk... they did xrays and there was a chip in the knee... go to the hospital and hopefully youll be better too ride in a few weeks!!!

Awwww man, hope your friend is doing okay :(
The one thing I hate about snowboarding is the injuries involved, takes precious weeks out of the season :(

Probably a plateau fracture.

I knuckled a jump the other day, my theory is that my right knee wasn't quite alligned right and I busted it pretty bad. It sounds like you did something similar and aggravated an old injury?

Sorry to hear :(
Does it still hurt?

I went to the school doctor and he took another xray, he says nothing looks wrong but they are gonna have an actual xray expert or whatever to check it out and gave me a bottle of ibuprofen.

I went boarding again, there was a slight achy feeling, but not enough to bother my ride. I hit a box and the landing was a bit deeper than usual. I landed and my knee went "crick crick crick" and for some reason it didn't hurt anymore........
WTF??? right???

Now I'm more worried......
I'm addicted :(

I have a similar injury, though I got mine in a garden-variety wipeout instead of the park. Banged my right knee three weeks ago. It's painless to walk on, but if I kneel on it or take a hit to the left of the kneecap, I get an intense shooting pain.

Is it a bone bruise?

had a similar injury to my shin after slamming doing a 270 onto a rail. ignored the bruise till i landed a big jump a week later, then i couldnt put weight on it. hairline fracture on my shin and sidlined me for a month.

I wouldn't know :( you should go to the doctor to make sure...
I had my school doctor check it out!
But what I had/have is similar to what you are feeling.
It's gotten better, but when I bend too much from landing a jump thats when the pain sort of kicks in, bearable though...
Check it out!

Owww :( was it the jump that caused the hairline facture??

Already did. They took an xray to check and found no fracture but definite evidence of post-trauma.

No big deal. Not like I'm at risk of falling on ice again this season.
