Injuries On The Trail

Postby RT4x4 » Wed Sep 28, 2011 5:14 pm

I took a hard spill over the bike today, dislocated my middle finger by the top knuckle. With my adrenaline flowing I grabbed it and popped it back into place. Everything seems to be ok for now. This is what I got after I google dislocated finger.

After relocation of the joint, see the doctor for a dislocated finger if:
there's significant swelling or deformity
there's pain when the finger is resting (after the first hour)
you can't move the joint fully
there's severe pain with motion of the finger
there's numbness or weakness

Almost forgot I also have a huge hematoma on my right leg, would post a picture but its nasty!

Dang that is a bummer. Good thing it wasn't too serious.

A few weeks ago a kid had to taken by ambulance from our local trails. Tried to make a jump on the expert trail and didn't make it. Landed face first and knocked him out cold. Tore his mouth all up as well.

Got some nasty pedal/shin rash around this time last year from some cheap wellgo pedals riding in the rain. Opened up my shin and drew a lot of blood. On my way back out of the trail it happened a second time and I was like fuck this, I need to get new pedals. I ordered a better set and some grippy 5.10's after that. Haven't had a problem since, but still have the scar.
