Taking Care of Common Winter Sports Injuries

Unfortunately, there are obstacles such as trees, lift towers and rocks that can cause head and spinal injuries if you have a collision. Staying in control and checking your speed are the best ways to prevent collisions. Wearing a helmet is the best way of preventing catastrophic head injuries. If you are involved in a serious collision, you should seek help from the ski patrol, or at the closest medical facility. There’s no sense in taking a chance with a head or spinal injury.

After a collision injury, chances are pretty good that you will experience generalized muscle aches. This is a good time to come in for a thorough neuromuscular massage. A full massage will help you to regain strength, mobility and range of motion while your body recovers from the collision.
