s Hippocrates said 2500 years ago: “Prevention is better than cure!” There is a feeling that the novelty has worn off. That’s true! For him, it was a forward looking hope, but for contemporaneous athletes it is a chance.
The chance is real for those who knows how to prevent their injuries. Today we focus on skiing and snowboarding, but for anyone in the field of sport, open your ears!
Thousands of skiers and snowboarders all over the world enjoy slopes every year, but a restricted number of them are physically and mentally ready for preventing injuries. At the same time, bad weather condition, as well misconduct can compromise the time spent on snow.
As it might be more than clear, some injuries cannot be budgeted, but some of them can be prevented.
What kind of injuries skiers and snowboarders are more exposed to?
In the majority of cases, it can be a matter of external factors: rough terrain, so falls and collisions. But sometimes, physical fatigue, especially after a full day on the slopes, can be the cause of injuries.
