Getting ready for the ski season

If you’re heading off on a skiing trip this winter, it is important you’re in good shape. Skiing is excellent exercise for the entire body, but it can exacerbate existing joint and muscular problems, so it is important that these are treated before you head onto the slopes.

Seeing a physiotherapist is the best way to ensure you are in the best possible physical condition before you go skiing, and is recommended for everyone from first time skiers to those who have been skiing for many years.
Skiing can be very physically demanding, so if you have pre-existing sports injuries or have simply never seen a physiotherapist before, now could be a good time to take the plunge. You need to be relatively agile and able to respond quickly, especially when you reach the trickier ski runs, so it can be invaluable to have a physiotherapist help you with your posture and work through any potential joint issues that need addressing.
