Physical Therapy for Skiers
Skiers mostly enter our practice as a result of a knee injury. The most common is the rupture of the Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL) or boot top fracture. At BreakThrough Physical Therapy our physical therapists are prepared to work with you for helping develop a pre-ski training program to help with injury prevention as well as post-injury and post-surgical physical therapy care. Successful programs have been developed and target all key muscle groups to improve strength, stability, agility and conditioning program, specifically targeted to the demands their body will require in the snow. We have a large open gym area that is set up specifically to allow us to run various circuit training and plyometric activities as well as all the tools to help the acute or post-operative physical therapy patient. At BreakThrough Physical Therapy, we take a comprehensive approach to address all areas of weakness or inflexibility to ensure that you are prepared for your desired level of activity (especially skiing) upon discharge.
If you are not sure what you can do to better prepare for success on the slopes, but want an easy, cost and time effective way to help ensure you take the right steps towards your future, guided by an expert; check out our Telehealth or Unlicensed Health Consultant and Coaching Services.
“I am ready for the season unlike ever before. Thanks for the targeted training to help me prepare for my best ski season in years.”
“I thought that after my anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) rupture, I’d never return to the slopes without a big clunky brace, but I actually feel that with all the hard work I put in combined with your guidance that I may be even stronger than I have been on the slopes in a long time.”
“Stacey is an avid skier herself and really did a great job of developing a training program that has helped me attack the slopes better than I have in a few years. It was worth the time and money to get her advice and train with her and the whole BreakThrough Team!”
