Dartmouth-Hitchcock Asks A Great Question -- Are You Ready For Winter Sports?

It is a great question...Are you ready for winter sports?

It's also being asked by the right people with the right intentions. The intentions are to make sure those who participate in these sports are physically fit and ready so injuries are avoided and a good time will be had by all. The people are the fine folks at Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center in Lebanon, NH.

In the article linked below, the practitioners at Dartmouth-Hitchcock give an overview of exercise to get a person in shape for the coming skiing/snowboarding season. All of the suggestions are geared toward injury prevention.

Are You Ready for Winter Sports?

While the leaves are still turning and there's still a hint of a possible warm streak of weather, many of you are dreaming of snow and cold weather so you can ski, snowshoe and skate. It is important to train and prepare your body for winter activities to avoid injuries.

Should you want to take any of this advice, or if you have more questions about what was written or something a bit more personal, do not hesitate to contact your doctor or physical therapist for help. The more we do now before the season, the better our skiing and riding experiences can be.
