Default bruised heel

Separated shoulders. This past Friday I blew out my heel on a very harse landing though. I hit the big park jump at Camelback, PA and came up a few feet short. The lift attendee said it was a 45 footer, it was probably closer to 40, unfortunately I only had enough speed to travel 35 feet or so. I probably came down from a height of 20 feet flush on the knuckle, tried to muscle through it, but just collapsed on impact, bounced, flipped, and landed flat on my back on the transition. I believe I tore something in my right heel, nothing too serious though. I also bruised my left ankle, and both knees were a bit weary the next day. I rode for a few more hours until the heel tightened up. Does anyone have any experience rehabing heel injuries? I bruised one some years back and it took forever to get back to 100%.

Hit a tree last year and got a spinal compression.

I would have killed myself if my head hit the tree.

badly bruised knee (two different occasions)
Some sort of shoulder injury (I'm currently having physio for but I think it originated on my first trip)
fractured rib (just healed)
some sort of minor fracture in/behind the pinky knuckle on both hands (current)
bruised/fractured coccyx (current - makes getting into/out of my car a bit tricky)

nothing major but not a bad collection for only 3 trips. And all while wearing impact protection. Just wear and tear I guess when you decide to learn to ride in the second half of your 30's The rib ended my day but got though rest of the week with painkillers more or less ok.

i just broke my collarbone while freeriding this past saturday, got distracted and caught an edge while riding fast and fell right on my left shoulder on an icy trail. I was lucky i was wearing a helmet though.

Broken tailbone, separated shoulder. Been lucky with just bruises this year, but I also invested in some crash pads and they have literally saved my ass a few times so far.

Was bombing it down some bullet-proof hardpack, and caught and edge. Did a couple of back flips, and I may have blacked out for a second or two, but I can't remember. A total beginner mistake, but I probably shouldn't have gone out with a cold.

Damaged meniscus in the right knee.
Damaged ligaments in the part that connects the ribs to the spine.
Something weird on my left ankle that the doctor reckoned was a sprain.

I did this on December 22nd, and lost about 40 days of riding. Couldn't walk for about a week, and had a slow recover over the subsequent 4 weeks. Am back to riding twice a week, but feel kinda sore. I'm sooooooo glad I was wearing a helmet. I'm now riding with body armour.

3 yrs ago hurt my right knee at work stepping off a tool to a step,just did something to my Left knee at work walking through the plant.I had a burning feeling in the back/side of my calf about an inch down and about 2-3 inches wide and long.Felt like someone stuck an icepick in my leg.X-ray's and ultra sound showed nothing[clogged artery/vein]waiting on an MRI.Burned really bad while driving home from work[90 minute drive most days.] Just goes to show ya,you can get hurt just being you and not doing anything crazy on the slopes !

So I knuckled a jump or something to make the outside of my leg hurt right at the top of my boot, I can't seem to replicate the pain when I'm not riding. Today I cleared a jump by ALOT (maybe just a 10-12 footer, but pretty lippy and tall), just barely caught the bottom of the tranny and that leg just sent shivers of pain going up, and seemed like I aggravated the same thing.

I've heard of a "high-ankle sprain"...is it possible to have it this high up? I don't think I took a direct hit to the leg to imply bone bruising, but maybe I wrenched it against the boot and its just bruised up there. ...
