This thought has popped into my mind over the last two seasons since I moved up to 91mm wide skis. Are any of you experiencing more post-skiing knee discomfort, inflamation, etc., that you might attribute to your newer, wider planks?
While I can ski longer and harder than the old days on my shorter, wider sticks, which is pretty significant since I'm 54, I have developed some inflamation on my 'good' knee, while my other knee is about the same it has always been.
I'm just wondering if any of you have had this thought, is the knee to cuff to ski edge geometry that much of a difference to cause this affect? My GP says it is arthritis and scripted me some Celebrex, no thanks. Also, I only feel discomfort when I am standing erect, not sexual, and I turn. I've been getting what feels like a micron of slippage in the joint, which gives me NO pleasure when it happens. Ouch, but it is only momentary
So, what do you think, ski related injury/wear or am I just experiencing the early arthritis my Doc has diagnosed?
Or have any of you Bears know you been injured by a fat ski?
By the way, since the inflamation went down, the slippage has been less frequent.
