I've dislocated three ribs*, three seperate accidents. I'm not sure how it'll effect me for the rest of my life, et.c though...



(The technical term is partially dislocated, or sublaxated, whatever)

I've never actually had a unicycling injury. I'm assuming you mean something debilitating...the only things that ever happen to me are pedal bites, and rack-age.

I've got one super bad ankle that has about 30% less mobility than my other. That was the cause of the loss of my spot on the track team.

Torn rotator cuff, ankle sprains (all over-extension, not rolled) and a really bad palm injury, all mostly healed now, so if anything, I'm riding even more!

Falling backwards, injuring wrists

Recently I've been playing unicycle hockey with the LUNIs and I have started falling backwards off of my unicycle, landing on my butt and arms. For some reason I am failing to absorb the shock with my arms--I seem to be landing straight-armed, thus transmitting a heck of a shock through them. My left wrist in particular objects to this treatment.

I used to say that when falling off a unicycle I always land on my feet, but I've defied that general rule three times in the last five weeks, and my wrist has not entirely recovered.

It hasn't stopped me riding, but it does make me a bit hesitant to ride backwards.

A few broken toes, ankles twisting and being sprained, being put in a cast. I few hand and back sores form when I was just starting to jump and use a handle.

I would have lots of pedal bites and scars, but I wear 661s, so those are prevented now, but I have about 10 bad ones before I bought those. I have a nice scar on my ankle I got frame failing an 8-set.

Ive bruised my butt, that one probably hurt the worst, and lasted a while. Also got some bruises on my inner thigh from falling on rails and other skinnies. I fall on my hands a lot, but they never get hurt. Lucky they are callused, so it takes a lot to ever cut my hands now. Stings a little though.

I rarely rack myself. I think I have about 5 times in total of all the times I have unicycled, and I dont want to do it ever again.

Oh, and tire burns. That one left a nice scar right below my knee.

I think thats all of them.

Oh! Falling on my uni and getting the pedals jammed into your back. That sucks.

besides landing hard on my hands and racking myself a few times i have never been hurt.on a uni you have alot less chance of being hurt than in any other sport like bicycling.

I have actually never broken a bone unicycling but I have broken my wrist, collarbone, both thumbs, torn two ligaments, and broken my foot from racing motocross.
