Hey! I was sendin with some friends at Momentum and I was in the arch and I fell above my bolt and took a solid whip, and my foot hit the wall and bent it back. It's kinda swollen right now but not too bad, and I can sort of walk on it, but I'd like to ski later today and I was wondering if there's anything I could do to fix it real fast. Thanks!

Edit: I see you are just a young'n. Personally, I would think getting your boots on would be the worst part. Ur basically wearing a cast once ur buckled in. There is no quick fix for injuries and only you can decide how bad your injury is and whether you can ski on the ankle or not.

See a doctor and avoid Internet medical advice.

If he can walk on it and is honestly thinking about skiing, I would argue that it's not bad enough to need immediate medical attention. Some people are such pussies.

Jaik, just listen to your body.
