Comment from: loud and clear, 35-44 Male (Patient) Published: November 19

I was jumping with my mountain bike through ramps, on the last of them my back wheel couldn’t get grip and launched me sideways instead of in a straight line. I noticed the wrong launch angle just as I was landing with no time to react, falling sideways directly into the ground shoulder and head first. Emergency personnel after an x-ray said that no bone was broken, but that there was a shoulder separation so ligaments may be torn. I am on ice for 4 days. After that we’ll see.
