Some injuries associated with skiing and snow boarding involves the knees, hip, wrists, shoulders, damage to joints, falls and bruising.
Here are just a few examples of how to reduce injuries and how to be safe on the slopes:
- Stay in good physical condition all throughout the year
- Immediately stop when feeling tired or experiencing any pain or discomfort
- Most ski injuries happen at the end of the day when feeling most exerted
- Take lessons or hire a ski instructor
- Beginners usually ski with a more rigid and stiff stance which results in extra stress and hard impact on joints
- Learn how to properly absorb shock when attempting jumps
- Never attempt slopes or speeds beyond your level of comfort and ability
- More injuries occur when trying to keep up with experienced family and friends
- Children and adults are prone to suffering serious injuries over rough terrain
Always follow posted procedures and illustrative maps since each ski resort has its own instructions, directions and legends. To reduce injuries use the best quality equipment such as a helmet and writs guards.
