Mail for help.Help!!

Log in to snowHeads to make it MUCH better! Registration's totally free, of course, and makes snowHeads easier to use and to understand, gives better searching, filtering etc. as well as access to 'members only' forums, discounts and deals that U don't even know exist as a 'guest' user. (btw. 50,000+ snowHeads already know all this, making snowHeads the biggest, most active community of snow-heads in the UK, so you'll be in good company)..... When you register, you get our free weekly(-ish) snow report by email. It's rather good and not made up by tourist offices (or people that love the tourist office and want to marry it either)... We don't share your email address with anyone and we never send out any of those cheesy 'message from our partners' emails either. Anyway, snowHeads really is MUCH better when you're logged in - not least because you get to post your own messages complaining about things that annoy you like perhaps this banner which, incidentally, disappears when you log in :-)

bindings after injury

 Poster: A snowHead

I twisted my knee 6 weeks ago now, suspected catilage damage. Been to physio and its come on massively. Got 95% movement back in it, no direct pain just a bit of an ache and the odd clink when i bear weight in an awkward possition. Anyway I am wondering what binding setting to have for me skis when I go away in 3 weeks time. My current settings are 6.5. I am 6ft 1, weight 11 stone and am intermediate-advanced. Do you think I should go down a little to minimise any risk if I do fall.

Hey. To be honest, if you aren't going particularly fast and just skiing piste then a din of around 6/7 should be fine. If your physio has given you any stretches to do, limber up before you head out every morning too snowHead

sellerselectrical, need your age and shoe size, but if over 50 you should move up a row in din chart, meaning down 1 in din setting.

sellerselectrical, Physios are qualified to provide treatment once a diagnosis has been made, which is usually made by a Doctor. You'll get all kinds of advice, but if you're concerned about your knee, vulnerability and binding settings your head is giving you a message. Your heart is telling you to go skiing. Better you sort this out now and perhaps have a safe trip or potentially you go and your knee gives way after an hours or so when you really, really need to turn and can't.

I had the same problem, went to physio -lot's of work, which in the end frankly made things worse. The meniscus tear was aggravated by the physio requiring more surgery that would not have been required had the injury been correctly diagnosed and rested before treatment. Result = A complete season off the slopes. As I say, Physios are not trained to make diagnoses, just to treat them

I'd urge to see you GP PDQ to get a referral to a specialist. If you have private health insurance, go today and good luck.
