Over the last few weeks I’ve been watching the snow spread further down the mountain and building my anticipation for the new ski season by watching some of the new ski film releases. I’ve got my season pass and the gear and am ready to go. Unfortunately on one of the rare occasions that I do some stretches I have started to realise that my body may not be as promising as the coming season. A few half hearted runs and a few lunges probably aren’t the best training for the next six months.
So if you’re like me the good news is I might be able to help. Having worked with a variety of athletes over the years along with the not so fit, I’m confident that osteopathic treatment can help get your body ready for the coming season.
Skiing in Jackson Hole a few years ago with a friend, a ski instructor for over 25 years, we observed from a lift a couple of young lads of about 16 ripping up a bump run. “Aaah young knees” sighed my friend. Many of us are nursing old injuries to our knees and they can slow us down.
Glucosamine can help. Strengthening of the quads and hamstrings is vital. Osteopathic treatment can help to identify weaker areas that need work on, free up restrictions and improve overall mobility. So if you’re like me and are a bit behind on the training come in for some treatment to start moving in the right direction.
