Twisted and hear a pop coming from my knee.. But let me back up the story some. Was at blue on friday Mar, 1 and was working the rails and practising the offset ones (where you jump from left/right and land on the rail) and slipped of. Normally I'd just get up, brush the snow off and be good to go, but if it weren't for the tail of my board digging in snow while the rest of my body (my right knee especially) kept turning I could have gone about the rest of my day. But after that happened and I watched my knee twist wayyy past what it normally should, followed by a pop and some severe pain my day was over. I laid on the floor off to the side for a good 15 minutes while the pain subsided enough that I could make it down the hill. But today I can barely walk without crutches. Im heading to the doctor tomorrow to get some scans done. Im really hoping this isnt a season ender for me :(

Possible torn meniscus. I've had it twice, both resulted in orthoscope, for me the knee cap on my right knee slid over to the inside of my knee and then back into place, on its journey it tore the shit out of everything in its path. What I didn't do was follow the physio like I should have, still have problems to this day. Hope you have sumn less severe, smart to get into doc quick. I had major swelling with mine too, hope you don't and heal up fast bro

Thanks for the info, when it comes to the knee not taking any chances here, know of way to many people who had surgery done for torn ligaments..

Just tore my MCL last week out in Utah at Snow Basin going off a small cliff. Went to Methodist Sports Med here in Indy...start physical therapy on Monday...said I would be riding in time for my April trip to CO. My advice would be to get it looked at right away and even get a couple opinions if necessary. I was fortunate and the Doc said mine would heal without surgery...just wear the heavy duty brace and start therapy.

Mine feels a lot better after a combination of heat and ice, although that could be the Vicodins kicking in.

Seems the most likely condition is a torn meniscus. Start physio monday. If it dosent heal through the therapy going to have to get surgery. Might have small bits of the tissue blocking my knee joints..

Lovely..

Well results are back, Nothing is torn. The pop was my knee separating then smashing back into place. Bruising all bones in my knee cap. Still in physio to build up strength but heal time can be up to a year.
