All those old injuries that complicate your /out/doors experience... I'll start:
>auto accident, 10 years ago
>have deep muscle whiplash, affects trapezius and splenius capitis (deep muscles under shoulder and extending to neck up to base of skull)
>deep, recurring ache once or twice a year, lasting for 3+ weeks
This sucks, and hampers my capacity to enjoy the rigors of being /out/.
I'm sure I'm not the only one who deals with this shit, there's probably hundreds of wounded veterans that lurk or post here.
What do you have? How do you deal with / alleviate your obstacles?

I broke the little toe in an unfortunate kickboxing mishap when I was like 13. Being a little toe they don't really "do" anything for it, so it hurt constantly for about a year, and now that it's healed there is no knuckle anymore, it's just a boney little nub like a marble stuck to my foot and it's basically sideways (lists inward close to 90ยบ). No big deal until I'm hiking several miles, then it hurts like alldick and because of all the stress on the nail I want to just file the whole damn toe down to nothing.

Also rolled my left ankle really bad a few years back... on a daily basis i don't notice anything wrong, but if I so much as stand on a pebble juuuust the wrong way my leg gives out. So yeah, that's always a ticking timebomb

have you ever seen an orthopedist? maybe they could do something for it

if you can hang on like 20 years theyll probably have great medicine for all kinds of injuries

no I never saw anyone for it. I talked to an MD who I just happeend to know right when it first happened, but never went in for treatment.

Either way the cost of little toe reconstruction and calibration could probably buy me a gransfors bruks and the mora variety pack

Slight arthritis from shoulder joint dislocation a year ago. Although the symptoms aren't too bad yet.

And my knees (especially the left one) are just in a generally bad shape.

On some days I have serious pain in my left knee when descending. Ascending is fine, but when I get down from the mountain the whole weight has to be on my right leg and my trekking poles.

Yup. Whoever says, "Genesis 1:26" is an ass-hole, because your god fucked up bigtime when designing the knee.

Bursitis turning into arthritis in dominant knee. Injured on the job back in 2007. Knee feels like it can give out sometimes but I got a kick ass brace that helps a good amount.
also -
Hurt on job June of 2011. Shoulder made a pop. Workers comp doc said it was a bone bruise. 7 months later I get a reevaluation. Labrum torn and cartilage wedged in the joint. Surgery with titanium screws and Kevlar thread. Still having issues, hard to weight bear on it when extended overhead. And the arm is slipping slightly out of the shoulder.

I miss being able to shit I did only a few years ago. Wearing a 2 strap pack is almost unbearable and even holding a camera to take a picture is a goddamn hassle.

I tripped a bit coming down a "trail" and my knee made a really bad noise. Hobbled out and didn't have it looked at. Youth! Seemed OK after a couple of weeks. Now I wear the tread off all my left shoes long before the right.

Yeah non union. Got some $$$ but it didn't matter when I was only working 2-4 days a week. Fuckers released me from treatment after 90 days, was in therapy for 3 weeks before I was thrown back into work. That's why I'm getting it reopened. I want that shit fixed right.

It was replaced but my knee still aches on long hikes and I don't feel comfortable doing any sport, even stickball, without my brace.

Bursitis in my left knee 22 years ago when my oldest son was in diapers. Removed fluid due to swelling, not enough after the infection ended. Hurts after a mile or two.

OTOH, my wife has MS. I got the better end of that deal.

That's manageable to some degree.
My mother was diagnosed with MS in 1983, and she's still having a good time, got no problems walking but can't drive at night due to eyesight. She'll be 70 in May so it's all a giant coin toss.
Wish you and your wife all the best from the innernetz.

MS isn't what it used to be because there are much better treatments now, but my wife has suffered in the endurance department. More than three miles in a day doesn't happen any more. And best wishes to your mom as well.

51 yp, most of the above. No MS, big toe for little toe.

Ankle, knees hips, sholder. I pace myself slow and steady and will out backpack the youngers.

I try to keep it light. I've done 6 nights/7 days, 84 mi over elevation change with 43#s.

Oddly, I fare better up hill than down.

Knee pain, mainly in the left and after around 20km of hiking, used to be after even a short walk but been doing a lot of squats.

Apparently due to misaligned patella, carry knee braces just in case cause it can get pretty painful to the point of having to limp, which obviously makes it worse for the other knee.

Not even a fucking injury but,

When I was born, the outside tendons of my legs were too long, and the inside too short, so my feet turned in. Not exactly clubfoot, though.

So they had to give my both legs braces for like my first year.

Even if I've been in shape, the tendons near my ankles can feel weak-ish, and maybe a little puffy. Kinda iffy doing balance-related stuff after hiking 20+ miles. Anyone know of specific outter-inner ankle exercises that might help?

I jumped off a three story building when I was 11 as a stunt to hide my crippling fear of heights from my then friends. I injured my left ankle and still feel the pain to this day when I put pressure on it. I also get back aches from when I fell off a motorcycle at 180 mph, once again I was trying to prove how brave I was.

Peer pressure is a bitch.
