Ski Pre-hab & Re-hab

Hitting the slopes this season?  Make sure you are ski-ready…..

Matthew Birch, Sports Rehabilitation specialist at Rudding Park Spa says “Don’t just think about rehabilitation once you’ve incurred a sports injury – when it comes to ski-ing you need to be thinking about ‘Prehab’, the term given to exercises undertaken to prevent an injury occurring”

Injuries commonly associated with skiing include knee ligament damage; commonly caused by lots of rotational and torsional load placed on the knees during carving and downhill skiing, and also potential falls. Women are two to eight times more likely to rupture knee ligaments than men due to female biomechanics. 

Matthew recommends booking a ‘’Pre-Hab Ski’ session at least two weeks before follow up ‘Re-Hab Ski’ a week after returning for a post-ski session.
