As far as being the most immediately shitty, breaking ribs has been the worst because you're gonna get the wind knocked out of you and when you do get those breathes through it feels awful.

Not really an injury but I recently got jaw surgery due to a crossbite which was going to lead to a life of pain / tmj in my joints. It's a brutal surgery, they completely removed my top jaw from my head during it. That was about 3 months ago and I'm not supposed to skate for another 3 because its fragile in there.

Isnít your top jaw just your head?

Iíve had plenty of shitty ankle sprains and a broken wrist, couple broken fingers, but right now Iím dealing with an Achillesí tendon rupture and it fuckin sucks. So far itís been about three months or so, and my doctor is telling me itíll be about another four months before I can properly run or jump.

To lift my spirits my physical therapist told me that I wouldíve been better off snapping my leg in half and that heís not sure my leg will heal back to 100%

I got a bad ankle fracture a year and a half ago, and despite surgery (there were no screws or anything put in my ankle) and physical therapy it is still not right.  I'm trying to remain positive.  I accept that I won't be able to be at 100% ever again but I feel like this long after the injury I'm not where I should be.  I started skating again 6 months ago and it is super frustrating how limited my skating is.  I would greatly appreciate any feedback/advice!  Thanks  ;D

I had chronic pain due to an ankle sprain that tore ligaments. Even after surgery it still hurt sometimes, but after I stopped eating meat and dairy the pain went away. Iím skating better now than ever before.

Shittiest was dislocating my shoulder last year (for the third time in 4 years). The other two times were from moshing, and awkwardly moving a box of merch for my friends band. The third time I was just skating a few blocks to the store, got hung up on a slappy, and my shoulder gave out when I fell. All the dislocations had made the ligament like slack rope, there was just nothing holding my arm into place. Had to do surgery, missed about a month and a half of work, couldn't skate for 6 months, it was fuckin' whack.

I definitely feel a lot better knowing I don't need to baby my arm anymore. But its also the injury that made me realize I'm starting to get older, and my body just can't take the same kind of abuse it used to.

After being out 3 plus months. I have my surgery scheduled for late January. An Arthroscopic LCL And MCL Meniscectomy. As both are torn heavily and can't be repaired with stiched, only trim/shave and save what the doctor can.

Hopefully, I can start skating again late March or early April. As recovery is 4-6 weeks is all works and rehab is good. I will take it easy when I do skate again.

Fuck me! I feel for those of you who have knocked out teeth, hit your head and worse... Like organ damage! I have the usual type of list. Both acl's and meniscus, broken ankle, wrist, toes and fingers. Pinched nerve in my neck accompanied by shoulder to ass scars from a drunken hill bomb gone awry. A weird inconsistently reoccurring mid foot thing that really only hurts when I push a lot. And countless ankle and wrist sprains.
Can't wait until arthritis sets in, but I wouldn't change any of it.

hung up backside lein on 12ft. kept my head up and splatted flat. knocked the living fuck out me, breath was beyond gone. rode my bike home heated up some bean and cheese thinking everything was cool. went to bed,woke up. couldn't walk the next morning because i was so slouched over. went to a doctor. sliped my lumbar 4. always thought yoga was for nerds. now i have to stretch every night. one slam changed everything. luckily i work for rad mother fuckers that recognized i was hurt and werent bummed on me being slow while i recovered. risk it and be psyched that you can go full on. shit changes quick.

Got x-rays done and my foots broken, gonna be out at least six weeks. Not trying to get fat so gotta figure out what I can do to stay in decent shape till I'm 100% again

Lifting weights burns heaps more calories than most people think


Do any of you guys have problems with your ankles cracking almost every step? More so on your ollie/pushing foot?

I'm only 21 and some days they really fucking hurt, and it takes forever to warm up. I've never broken it or rolled it. I wanna be able to skate for at least another 20 years or more so I'm trying to figure out how to deal with this. Skate hi tops? Better insoles?

Didn't want to start a new thread but I had a question to anyone who has been non weight bearing for an extended period before. My foots just about healed and I'm gonna visit the podiatrist Friday, anyway my question is what's the transition going back to normal activities like? I've been off my foot since Christmas and just want to skate or even just walk on two feet again.

Do physical therapy. That shit is essential. I broke my fibula last May, had a plate and 8 screws put in and was off my leg for 2 months. Everyday activities will come back easier but skating will take a while. It's super frustrating knowing what you are capable of and physically not being able to do it. It's all about baby steps. In the last two months I'm starting to feel almost 100%. Physical therapy is expensive and hurts like hell, but in the end if you want to get back on your board as soon as possible, it is a MUST. AND DO THE AT-HOME EXERCISES.

Busted my ankle when I was younger, doc told me stuff to do an I thought it would be better to just stay off it and party. Wrong choice, it ended up taking a year and a half for my ankle to heal where I can do flip tricks semi well and jump off 4 - 6 stairs again.

Busted more than a handful of ankles/knees ever since and when I do I immediately get a shoelace to make a type of pulley system, throw it around my couch and do reps stretching the muscles every which way. At one point thought I would never skate again but slowly I got back to where I was.

Shoulder used to dislocate one to three times a week at its worst. Would knock it outta the socket while asleep, tossing a rock out of the way, or even mid air cuz my arm naturally moved in the air in the middle of back 50ing a hubba or whatever. Have old footage of it in the middle of front boardin a flat rail and nollie hardflipping a six stair gap.

Now when I fall hard I try to keep my arms down so I wont hyperextend my shoulder again, do alot of sliding across the ground on my side and shoulder but fuck it, at least I aint poppin anything back in afterwards.

you might want to look at surgery for that shoulder. I had that same problem and now 2 screws hold my shit in place, it never popped out again. surgery was over 20 years ago and that shoulder never bothered me again.

Tore my ACL and meniscus in high school on a back 180 over a bump over sidewalk that I already landed but wanted a better one, then tore it twice more over the years. 3 surgeries. I have it on film but canít watch that shit.

I quit skateboarding like a bitch after the 3rd because I felt like the knee was doomed to re-tear.
Started skating again after 6 years off in 2015. Low impact, no drops really. Been so fun and the knee has been fine until literally last week when it started hurting like a bitch. ACL feels solid so I self diagnosed a moderate meniscus tear that required a couple weeks off because fuck any more surgery.

Happened to have an annual doctor checkup yesterday so I reluctantly told him my knee hurts.  He said ACL and meniscus seem fine, itís probably premature arthritis.  Orthopedists have long predicted this would come for me eventually so not even surprised. Iím turning 30 in a couple weeks so I guess here we go.

Knee feels better after a week of no skating so hopefully I can get back to it after another week.

Various mild wrist breaks and sprains but that ainít nothin.

I tore my Meniscus yesterday.  I went to the orthopedist this morning and he didn't give me a time frame for skating just yet.  He thinks it's a mild tear, and told me to hold off on the MRI for a few days to see if it recovers over the weekend.  Any one here have a time frame for worst case scenario of getting back on the board after a meniscus tear, without surgery?

I thought I was a super cool bad ass so I bought a motorcycle. Took that bitch well over 100mph, no problem. Then I was riding at about 30mph in traffic, slipped, crashed, broke my heel and ankle in 4 places.  Haven't skated in 6 months and I have no idea when I'll be able to kickflip again.

Not saying anything against motorcycles, they are awesome. But if you get one just understand they are on a different level of danger than skating.
