Well, just left the doc. torn trapezius and pectoral muscles on my left side. out for at least 2-3 weeks. Mick Jagger was right, it's a drag getting old...

let's hear about those water sports injuries, big or small...

I know 3 people with rib inuries.. all happened in the last 2 weeks... one barefooter, and 2 slalom... minor injuries - but injuries none the less.

don't forget - warm up run.... stretch and don't ski when fatigued... that's when most of the injuries happen...

Technically this isn't a watersports injury, but it is severely affecting my skiing this summer.:mad: I broke fibula and dislocated my tibula in December and had surgery. I was non-weight bearing for 10 weeks and then spent another 10 weeks in a walking boot. I still have to wear a brace daily to keep the swelling down and it is tender to the touch. My ski binding is uncomfortable to say the least and I am too scared to attempt wakeboarding. It's also looking like a second surgery is likely for this winter. For now, I am the permanent driver.....

I blew my femur into 4 parts. My body spun and the ski stayed nicely engaged on the surface of the water.

Man, I'm starting to feel like a whiner with torn muscles. You guys r getting beat up! A few years ago I lost my wake skate in the air trying a wake to wake big spin, and when I went in the water the board hit and slid up my shin. Immediately a stripe about an inch high raised up from my ankle to my knee, right on the front of my shin. Hematoma. That one hurt.

Oh man, Happy Healing to all of you! I still have yet to have a boating injury :) Maybe I should knock on wood...?

It wasn't that bad of a fall, but turned my arm black and blue. It's been 3+ weeks, the arm is better, but the shoulder just can seem to lift any weight. I can turn it, actually swim a little. I have no strength when I go to push with it.
