Be prepared and avoid ski injuries with this quick tip

Do you have a ski trip booked this year? Avoid ski injuries with the right preparation leading up to your holiday and avoid the 3 biggest mistakes people normally make.

Physiotherapist Jess Norton spent almost four years living and working in Vancouver, Canada and enjoyed plenty of time on the slopes.  Jess is very familiar with ski and snowboarding injuries and shares some insight on preventing injuries below.

  1. Not training in the lead up – one of the biggest mistakes we make leading into the ski season or a skiing holiday is lack of preparation.  The way we use our muscles while skiing and snowboarding is very different to the way we move during day to day activity, so we need to train for this different type of movement. Quad, glut and core muscles are typically the muscles that need the most focus.
  2. Not making sure you are fit to spend all day on the mountain – Cardiovascular fitness plays a large role in injury prevention – make sure you get the legs conditioned to tolerate a big day on the slopes – a stationary bike or push bike is great for this

Fatigue is a major factor in injuries on the ski slopes so it is important to train endurance as well as strength and flexibility.

3. Not getting a lesson if you haven’t skied in ages – make sure you get a lesson when you return to the slopes after a long hiatus. Your technique is critical in making sure you remain injury free and enjoy yourself

Josh and Dave give a great footwear tip for your kids returning to school.

Our two senior physios Josh Meyer and Dave Coombs talk about kids feet and the right footwear for your kids returning to school.

As toddlers learning to walk we all started in bare feet. Funnily enough the advice we have been given over the years has lead to bulky, over supportive and heavy shoes. We want parents to encourage their kids feet to become stronger through natural adaptation to a variety of different surfaces.

 

Physiologic patient back to skateboarding post ankle injury!

One of our patients at Physiologic Robina Physiotherapy, who is a skateboarding nut successfully returned back to his normal level of skateboarding this week after a nasty ankle injury.

As you can see his “normal” level of skateboarding is well above what most of us would dream of.

Dedication to his rehab program and high quality advice from Physiotherapist Joe Rowley which was based around his goals is what got him there.
