Been around 9 years since I have had a jetski related injury. Was riding SXR Saturday doing some hard turns. Went into a right hand sweeper and had to tighten it up. Rear broke loose with me laid out in turn. Then it grabbed. All my weight projected to my left ankle... went to sports med dr today. Possible strained or torn ligaments in my mid foot area...... so, wearing a walking cast / boot for 3 weeks. This six. 20180916_140801.jpg 20180919_110044.jpg 20180915_151235.jpg 20180919_113345.jpg

BK: Your sports med doc knows more than I do. But I tore up two or three of the ligaments in my ankle water skiing and windmilling with one foot still in the boot. I have also torn ligaments in my knee (ACL) and my shoulder supra spinatus).

Stay on top of your doctor because once the ligament retracts, they often cannot or will not pull it back to reattach it.

The foot surgeon who fixed my ankle was a superhero. He has his own squirrel suit and has done over 5,000 jumps in the Army reserves. He did a fellowship in ankle surgery. My ankle is great (although I am afraid to water ski, and haven't been in the foot straps of a windsurfer since, and the whole concept of foot holds in a jet ski scares me.)

Best of luck.

If you want that sprain/strain to heal a 1/3 to a 1/2 times faster than normal healing, try Hirudoid Forte Cream/Gel Made in Germany.

It's an anti-inflammatory and anti-clotting ointment that works quickly just by rubbing and massaging it into the injured area.

I've used it a lot during my soccer days to quickly heal bumps, bruises and turf toe. Most of the time, to get rid of a big "Mouse" on my shin; would heal in 3 days of treatment.

Not cheap but very effective. Sold all over the World over-the-counter. Make sure it is made in Germany.

Recently it was found to eliminate varicose veins so the Chinese are making inferior imitations to steal market share.

Man that is tempting to try but I have lost faith and live by caveat emptor these days.

I have no financial interest in this product.

Only know that it is effective if product is Made in Germany.

When I bang my shin on the ride plate, this ointment takes care of that tender mouse fast.

I've had no side effects from this product over a couple of decades. Only use it when needed.

I believe it contains some type of anti-inflammatory Steroid, which is shown in the name: Hirud-oid

I know a Turf Toe takes a long time to heal and it hurts the whole time. I won't suffer thru that pain if I have Hirudoid available.

I also use Blue-Emu, Tiger Balm, Joint Flex, etc. (mainly for muscle strains) but those products don't have the healing power of Hirudoid.
