Knee Injuries are the Most Common Injury in Winter Sports

About one third of all skiing and snowboarding injuries involve the ligaments in the knee with the ACL being the most common ligament affected. Fortunately, improvements to boots and bindings are cutting down on the number of fractures, but any sudden twist while you’re in a binding can result in a knee ligament injury.

The best thing you can do to prevent knee injuries is to be cautious of sharp turns, to build up your quad muscles to handle the stress, and wear a knee brace while skiing or snowboarding.

Massage can greatly reduce the time to recovery in a knee injury, and can help you regain mobility quickly.
