    It seems that I now have nerve damage in my knee/shin where I slammed it the first week of February. It took over a month for the swelling/bruising to go away completely, but now it is totally healed up and I still can't feel it when I or someone else touches it. My husband was tapping it last night and I didn't even know it until I looked down and saw him doing it.

    About a week and a half ago (April 9)I completely tore my left shoulder. I had separated it about three weeks prior (probably type 2), but didn't take any time off because the season was winding down. Now it's completely torn and REALLY displaced. The swelling is finally going down, and it's staying rather displaced. Hopefully I don't need surgery, I've been avoiding shoulder surgery like the plague. The rotator cuff in the arm is already completely torn from like 3 seasons ago. Ugh. Hopefully I can rehab and put in some time in Whistler in July at the COC park.

    bruised tail bone for me. Was planning on seeing a doctor until i read up on the maneuver to diagnose of a bruised tail bone consist of inserting a finger into the rectum, pinching the coccyx with the internal finger and thumb. If moving the coccyx reproduces pain, the the dx is made.

    I said hell no to that and took tylenol every 6 hrs for 3 weeks. i couldn't sit still in class and had to shift my weight every couple minutes. I must've looked like I was passing gas the whole time.

    I chipped my tailbone getting nutted on a handrail skating in high school. SOOO painful. I had to carry around an inflatable donut to sit on in class. Lucky for me I just got an X-Ray, maybe even an MRI, and not the exam above.

    Are you sure that was a doctor who wanted to finger you? My tailbone was diagnosed broken by looking at an x-ray.

    He said the test was for a "bruise." But still...what's the point of Dx'ing a bruise? *Finger up the butt* "You should take it easy until it doesn't hurt any longer" ...I think I could figure that out without losing my virginity.

    Actually X-ray is not a very useful tool for working up tail bone bruise/fracture. The test has a low sensitivity for detecting coccyx fractures and on top of that, management for a coccyx fracture vs a bruise is the same (basically pain management). The current guideline is to treat base on clinical suspicion (ie history and sx). Even though the rectal exam is probably the best clinical test, I think most patients will probably choose to pass on that .

     Nothing too serious.

    The most painful/persistent one was a sprained tail bone from slipping off a log jib and having the end of the jib go right into my tail bone.

    Pretty much all the other ones are from hitting trees most notably one where I hit my head on a tree and the impact was so hard against my goggles that they split the corner of my eye and gave me a mild concussion.

    Another one happened when I hit a stump under the snow which sent me flying sideways into a tree and gave me a purple bruise on my hip. A different time I had nearly the same thing happen only on the opposite side.

    The last thing I can really recall is hitting an out of bounds rope that I didn't see as I rode under this pine branch. The rope grabbed me right under my noise and almost knocked my helmet and goggles off. It gave me a pretty bad rope burn on my upper lip.

     you did the achilles while riding? didn't think that was possible since your ankle is pretty much locked in place

    considering I've been riding for 20+ years I haven't has too many injuries. Normal bumps and bruises, but 3 major ones. Bruised/fractured my coccyx bone in the early 90s, I think it took more than 6 months to fully heal. Got blindsided by a skier on his f'n cell phone 4 years ago and needed complete shoulder reconstruction. And currently am dealing with a partially torn achillies tendon. This was originally injured mtn biking last november then rode on it all season, never healed. Just had PRP injections 2 weeks ago, still on crutches but the doc said I should be on snow by no later than Jan 1.

    Right shoulder, 3 days post op...bicep tendon, labrum, and rotator cuff repair.
