GF is out
 
So today at MT. Creek my gf fell back pretty hard on some ice. she broke her landing with her wrist needless to say she's hurting pretty bad most likely sprained. I know this is a common injury in this sport since most people use their hands to break falls. So what's the typical recovery time on something like that?

About a week I would say to be back at 100%. Once you sprain it once its really easy to RE-Sprain it.

depends on the type of sprain, last year i hit a wall in my gym class (yes i know it sounds stupid, but it is a small gym) and i mistakenly used my hands to cushion the hit. My wrists were killing me for the next, maybe a little more than a month (i was full out sprinting). The other week I caught an edge and landed right on my wrists and it felt like it was re-sprained but it went away in a couple days. So a lot of stuff factors in. least amount of time in my opinion would be 1-2 weeks recovery

Cheo is right. Its very easy to sprain it again. Teach her how to fall correctly to avoid screwing it up again.

yeah a week doesn't sound so bad hopefully it's not like Bobby's situation. I think I will get her wrist guards if this now makes her prone to future sprains.

i dont believe in wrist guards for snow, not to say they are bad. I think knowing how to fall appropriately for a given situation is better. so do both.

Thursdays rain shitted things up a little but to be honest they were blowing a lot of snow I went today as well and it was man made powder with an ice base that in some areas poked out a little much. All in all awesome conditions for the bullshit weather we've had... and the Dr confirmed today that it's broken not sprained so it seems she won't be snowboarding for 6 weeks.

We also thought my boys wrist was just a sprain. He fractured his Scapoid bone as his wrist was swollen on top and bottom but still had full function.

My point, just don't wait to long to get it looked at if the "sprain" is still hurting.
He's out 6-8 weeks, and he wasn't wearing wrist guards as he is supposed to....
Hope she heals fast
