Hip / Leg injury

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I'm looking to see if anyone out there has done something like the following:

Two weeks ago, on the first chair of the day I left my boots unbuckled
until the top of the chair. As I got off, I slid forward slowly and leaned
over to tighten all the buckles on both boots. I hate to admit it but
the left ski went left and the right ski went right, so I went down straight
forward. After getting up and enduring the laughter of my ski partners,
I skied the rest of the day fine. The next day I skied all day fine.
The third day when I got up out of bed I could not put any weight on my
left leg. The pain was primarily in the leg to hip joint and it was intense.
It took 3 - 4 days for the pain to subside and to be able to put any weight
on the leg. From time to time I would get "charlie horse" like cramping and
pain in the outer left thigh, the inner thigh near the knee, and even
mild pain in the front of the left shin.

It's been two weeks and most of the pain is gone; still a little sore in
the left hip joint and slight pain in the front, left shin. It appears to
be getting better. I'm hoping to back to skiing next week. I'm taking Glucosamine and Chondroitin and Vitamin C.

I'm wondering if this was a bone, tendon, ligament and/or ??? injury.

Any help would be appreciated.

No this was not the first 3 days of the season.
I had been skiing for about 2 months.
Any ideas and/or recomendations?

It's now been 3 weeks and I've been working the
leg on my mountain bike. About 1-2 miles a day.
The hip joint is still sore. The muscles are OK.
I'm going to try skiing tomorro for an hour or two.

OK. I thought I'd ask. I was having some difficulty, in my minds eye, visualizing that fall---and what body parts would take the stress.

Do you think you stressed the left side more than the right somehow?

I get charley horses in the outside of my hips when riding on the back of a snowmobile---it has to do with body position
