Skiing 2

Discussion: Skiing

Over the coming months Arena based business Summit Physio will be going over a number of common injuries and how to avoid them. This month they highlight the pressures of skiing…

The increase in the number of skiers has resulted in an increase in the number of musculoskeletal injuries requiring medical attention, not to mention muscular strain and soreness not requiring medical care. The chances of injury during skiing exceed football, which many people consider to be one of the most dangerous sports.

Table

Proper physical conditioning is important to prevent joint injury as well as muscular strains and soreness. Fatigue is a major factor causing ski injury. This is not surprising since “skiing is probably the sport in which the largest proportion of people who participate, especially adults, do not condition themselves.”

Skiing requires proper conditioning and may result in a number of musculoskeletal injuries. Injuries of this variety may be prevented by physical conditioning of the skiing enthusiast in a specific program. We have presented a program that may be useful in both clinical and training settings as a method to enhance muscular endurance necessary for increased enjoyment of the skiing experience and to condition the musculoskeletal system for the substantial demands required of it during downhill and cross-country skiing.
