Hit the Slopes Safely and Stay Injury-free this Winter
Staying active during the winter months is important for mental and physical health. An estimated 10 million skiers and snowboarders will make over 50 million visits to ski resorts across the United States in 2021. However not everyone is prepared for the rigorous physical demands that these sports place on the body. You may be fit and workout regularly, but you still need to prepare your body for the biomechanics of Alpine sports to avoid soreness or injury.

Join Dr. Sabrina M. Strickland, MD, orthopedic surgeon at Hospital for Special Surgery, and H&D’s own Clinical Director, Dr. Asra Abdullah, DPT, for expert advice on what you should do before hitting the slopes and what can be done if an injury does occur.

This hour-long discussion will cover:
Importance of pre-season 'sports specific' strength and conditioning
Use of appropriate gear and equipment
Strength conditioning program designed for both skiers and snowboarders
Self-test you can take to assess your readiness to start the ski/snowboard season
