As the winter months truly set in, it also means the beginning of skiing and snowboarding seasons for winter sports lovers. Whether you are a fully-fledged winter sports fanatic or it’s your first time on a snow holiday, it’s always important to make sure that you are fully prepared before setting off to ensure that you get the most out of your ski holiday.
Preparation for a ski holiday is key and can prove to be extremely beneficial in improving your fitness and energy levels while on the slopes. Whether it’s a few months or only a few weeks in advance, it is never too late to start getting ready for skiing or snowboarding. Inevitably with any sport or activity there is always the risk of injuries. Here are some of the most common ski injuries we see here in the clinic.
By taking the necessary precautions and preparing your body in advance, there is nothing to hold you back from enjoying your holiday on the slopes. If you do happen to injure yourself, seek the help of a physiotherapist or doctor immediately.
Here at Ballsbridge Physiotherapy Clinic, we can advise you on the best exercises to get you fit for skiing and can advise on the best treatment for any skiing injuries if they occur. Contact us here if you have a question or wish to book an appointment with one of our physiotherapists.
