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.

Team Of The Month: Vamos Campeones

Each month we pick a football “Team of the month” and give them some goodies, which are kindly supplied by our sponsors USN.

The team can be picked for a number of reasons, whether it’s because of their commitment to the Arena leagues, they had an epic fail in their last match or they pulled of an insane bit of Tekkers!

February’s team of the month is Rob Whites’ Vamos Campeones of the Tuesday 5s Premier League. This being their 10th anniversary since registering to play at the Arena seems very fitting to reward a team based upon outstanding contribution both on and off the pitches.

Players such as Seb Miller, Nick Hunger, Stu Latchford, John Nuttall whilst still in their early twenties are regarded as veterans within our leagues. One particular quality of Vamos’ is whether rain or shine, BWFC, Utd games or any other big live game they’ll always fulfill their fixture, always display exemplary sportsmanship albeit a win, loss or draw. The perfect role model of a committed and loyal five-a-side team.
