Long before #skateboarding was legally considered a “hazardous sport” the city of Palo Alto approved a public #skatepark in Greer park. I fractured my #scaphoid bone also known as the carpal navicular there for the first time. Little did I know that wearing a cast for the next decade would become one of my trademarks as a professional #skateboarder. In the early 90’s @thrashermag hosted #skateboard contests in the drained fountains behind civic center in San Francisco called “Back to the City”. I wore this cast that was made by my friend Ron Powers at one of the back to the city contests around that time. I stopped wearing this particular cast because the fiberglass casts that the doctors used were much lighter and they also made them so that I could remove them when I wasn’t skateboarding. If you have a broken scaphoid it’s my experience that ultrasound therapy is the most effective method for healing. Regardless of how bad the fracture it’s best to give the fracture extra time to heal as its a difficult break to detect. #tbt #throwbackthursdays ✌❤🍕
