Only time I have been incapacitated after a fall was when I pulled a muscle and could not walk.Still rode home with both feet on the pedals but only able to put pressure on with the good leg. Plenty of spills when mountain biking and bruises and cuts galore. Bruises and get on with it. May hurt but no real damage. Cuts and a plaster but the problem is where you get road/trail rash. They sting for a long time. This will make your eyes water but I learnt it from the medics when I was in the Marines. Surgical spirit. Yes it will hurt for about 30 seconds or so but you then have a couple of hours relief before it comes back again.
How long was I in the army? Five foot seven.
