Skiing is a thrilling and challenging sport, but it comes with a risk of injuries, especially for those who are new to the sport or push themselves to their limits. Injuries such as ACL tears, concussions, and fractures are all too common among skiers. However, with the right approach, these injuries can be prevented or treated with Physiotherapy.
In this blog post, we will discuss the role of Physiotherapy in preventing and treating common skiing injuries, and how Club Health, London’s leading Rehab & Performance Clinic, can help skiers stay healthy and active on the slopes.
PREVENTION IS KEY.
The best way to avoid skiing injuries is to prevent them from happening in the first place. This is where Physiotherapy can play a crucial role.
A skilled Physiotherapist can assess your physical abilities, identify areas of weakness or imbalance, and develop a customised programme to help you build strength, improve balance and coordination, and enhance your skiing technique. At Club Health, our Team of experts works with skiers of all levels to develop a personalised prevention program that fits their unique needs and goals.
TAILORED PLANS OF CARE AT CLUB HEALTH
At Club Health, we believe that every skier is different, and that’s why we offer tailored programs to meet the unique needs of each individual. Our team of Physiotherapists, Sports Scientists, and Medical Consultants work together to create a personalised program for each person, whether that’s a seasoned skier, or an amateur looking to try out the sport for the first time.
The programme includes a comprehensive assessment of your physical abilities and previous injuries, an analysis of your skiing technique, and a customised prevention program based on the above.
The prevention program may include Strength Training, Balance and Coordination Exercises, and Technique Training to address any areas of weakness or imbalances.
Our Team of Specialists also provides guidance on proper warm-up and cool-down techniques, as well as appropriate protective gear to wear while skiing. Additionally, our nutritionists can provide dietary advice to support overall health and wellbeing.
