Spring Snow can Present a Challenge to Skiers and Snowboarders

When the champagne powder turns to springtime slush, skiers and snowboarders risk injury to knees and ankles because your technique may need to change to fit the snow conditions. It is more difficult to carve turns or make quick movements when the snow is wet and heavy.
 
After a day of skiing or snowboarding in spring conditions, a good neuromuscular massage will help relieve any stiffness or soreness after that workout.

Snowboarders can Experience Ankle Injuries

Snowboarder’s ankle is fracture of the outside Talus bone in the ankle. Oftentimes, snowboarders consider the ankle pain as merely a sprain and avoid having an x-ray to confirm the fracture. In addition, these fractures are difficult to see on x-ray but can be seen easily on a cat scan.

One way to prevent Snowboarder’s ankle is to wear a brace that goes above the ankle to restrain over-movement while snowboarding. Recovery often involves the use of a wobble board to strengthen the muscles used for balance.

Massage can be beneficial to relieve the pain around the area, as well as to help regain flexibility in the ankle joint. Treatment can begin as early as 2 weeks after a talus fracture, or as soon as the swelling subsides in a sprain.
