Winter is coming. And with that ski season is just around the corner. Now is the time to start focusing on your preseason workouts to avoid injuries throughout the ski season. Over the next six weeks leading up to your first time on the slopes this season, you should focus on lower extremity and core strengthening, balance training and plyometrics, so you make it all winter long without injuries and well into spring corn harvesting season. Exercises such as squats and lunges on stable surfaces later progressing to doing them on the BOSU trainer or Airex mat will allow you to build strength and stability in your legs. Focusing on core stabilization with use of the Swiss ball while engaging your gluteal, hamstrings, and abdominal muscles will help your stability later in the day on the mountain. Box jumps and skater hops focusing on proper landing form will let your legs better absorb the moguls and turns. If for some reason you still end up with an injury on the slopes, you can always come find us at Rocky Mountain Physical Therapy to help you return to the slopes next year.


I completed a six week internship with RMPT, part of which I was with Rob in the Loveland office. Rob is an extremely knowledgeable, professional, and caring DPT. I thoroughly enjoyed my time learning the trade from him. I highly recommend this office for your physical therapy needs. -Chelsey, Loveland (Google Review 5stars)

I recently completed a six week internship with RMPT. I spent most of it with Amie and Jess in the Windsor clinic. They both are extremely knowledgeable, compassionate, and well rounded. I highly recommended using RMPT for all of your therapy needs. Chelsey, Windsor (Google Review 5stars)
