SkiingSkiing is an aerobic activity that requires strong core and thigh muscles.  You must also have good balance.

Before you head off to the slopes it is imperative that you prepare for your holiday by increasing your fitness, muscle tone and stability. By improving stability and mobility in your shoulders, legs and hips, this will reduce the likelihood of injury and improve your skiing performance.

Most injuries whilst skiing occur in the second part of a holiday. When you are becoming tired you start to notice a lack of fitness and this can lead to injury.

Injuries occur due to:

  • Over exertion
  • Over use
  • Fatigue
  • Trauma

Overcome these problems at Physiotherapy2fit with a 1:1 appointment with a Clinical Specialist Physiotherapist or join our Pilates and Fitness Conditioning classes.

1:1 Ski Assessment

Our experienced Physiotherapists at Physiotherapy2fit will check your alignment looking for weaknesses in the knees, ankles, hips, pelvis, back or shoulders that may lead to a vulnerability for potential injuries. We will advise on how you should manage an acute problem should you suffer whilst away on your skiing holiday. Daily exercises will be recommended that you should be using as part of a warm up each day. You will be provided a bespoke home exercise programme to get you into top shape designed to meet your individual needs. Sessions last for one hour and cost £60.

Fitness Conditioning Classes

For ongoing structured, supervised exercise excellent for becoming ‘Ski-fit’ you could join our Pilates and Fitness Conditioning classes. These are fun small group classes that incorporate small equipment including the BOSU, gym balls and resistance apparatus to challenge balance, tone and build muscle strength without losing flexibility.  The maximum class number is 6 so you can be sure to get individual attention throughout ensuring you are performing exercises for the full benefit.

We recommend that before you go on holiday you attend at least 8 weeks of classes to ensure that you are as fit as possible to hit the slopes.

These classes can be attended without Ski 1:1 Assessment but you will need a quick 15 minute assessment in order for us to identify your individual needs.  This only costs £15.

“Do you have a fracture?”

One of the latest technology advances of modern Physiotherapy is the introduction of LIPUS.  This new technology is able to reduce your healing time by up to 50%.  Thats 3 weeks instead of 6!

The sound pressure stimulation provided by the LIPUS (Low Intensity Pulsed Ultrasound) system accelerates the formation and union of fractured bone and promotes rapid recovery.

Research has shown LIPUS significantly reduces healing time compared to placebos.

Used by all premiership football clubs and the MoD this is cutting edge technology which is only offered as a last resort on the NHS.

Book an appointment today for and initial consultation and then hire our machine for daily use at home.
