Prevent Skiing and Snowboarding Injuries With Chiropractic

Hitting the slopes, whether on skis or a snowboard, is a popular winter pastime.  According to the American Journal of Sports Medicine, it also happens to be “the riskiest sport undertaken by adults on a routine basis.” (Am J Sports Med 1999;27:381-9).  Fortunately, many skiing and snowboarding injures can be resolved with chiropractic care.  Dr. Smith works with skiers and snowboarders to prevent injury before it occurs, and hasten recovery when it does.

Regular chiropractic care is key to avoiding skiing and snowboarding injuries.  Chiropractic resolves vertebral subluxations, keeps the spine in alignment and the body in balance, fundamental factors for preventing sports injuries.

Using proper equipment — and maintaining it — is vital.  Even though boots and bindings have improved over the years, many skiers do not realize they must be correctly fitted and routinely adjusted.

Wearing a helmet can prevent injuries — especially during falls and collisions.

Instruction by a professional – including learning how to fall as safely as possible — may prevent skiing and snowboarding injuries.  Consider lessons as an investment in your health.  The expense and time commitment accrued by lessons is far less than the expense and time taken up by injury.

Finally, choosing slopes that are at your skill level prevents injuries. Dr. Barbara Smith
