Ever hang by a tree by your knee?

Postby acsguitar » Sun Feb 13, 2005 9:31 pm

I did...I was skiing this weekend at copper and got my leg caught under a fallen tree unfortunately my body kept going forward...i heard a loud crackle like cracking your neck...I hung there for a good minute.screaming for my buddy...i was able to somehow do a backwords sit up and grab the fallen tree and plant myself on a ski poll...My buddy finally made his way up through the trees and unbuckled me...i pretty much thought I was done for the season...after getting out of my binding i was in shock that my knee felt fine!! we hiked out of the woods for 45 minutes and i only had slight pain! ... I think im ok probably just a bad sprain...at least my ACL is still there! Anyways it was a crappy experience and hopefully il be back on the mountain in 3 weeks or so...No swelling and no brusing makes me think all is well...anyways anyone ever have knee injuries like that?

Knees have been fine for me. Tore the tendons in my ankle as a kid when I stepped on a curb wrong playing football in the street. Closest thing to a knee injury for me is my kid brother tore his ACL twice before the age of 18.

Good to hear that you are ok. ;-D

Wow... 8-o

Crazy story, acs.

The closest I can come to that is when I was playing tennis and was certain that I'd tore my ACL or something. I had just run to my left to hit a backhand, and I was mostly off the court. I was doing the traditional sideways hop back to the middle of the court when my opponent laid out a beauty of a drop shot. It was straight in front of me, so I stopped, planted my left foot, and pushed off. Apparently, it didn't like that.

My knee made a popping noise, and I felt a stab like a needle right through the outside of it. I immediately dropped to the ground. It was weak for a second, and I was up walking around in minutes. My opponent said he heard the pop all of the way on the other side of the court. Never had a problem since then.

I still won the match, too.

:-D

Anyway, watch out for trees from now on, ok?

;-D

I had this in both knees. They say it goes away when you're older but your knees are never the same. It probably didn't help that I wrestled all through junior high and high school and pretty much played through the pain the whole time.

Why is that classified as a disease? Seems just like a strain to me. :-? I'd say we've all probably had that strain before. I know I have. Thought it was shin splints at first, but it went away in a few days on it's own so I knew it was just a strain. No idea why it's considered a disease though. :-?
