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
