Derick Page, Licensed Physical Therapist Assistant

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.

Seriously, I walked in limping with a brace on my first day, and left feeling wonderful, and I kept improving after each visit!!! The exercises and attention from the therapists (Kelsey and Jamie) have helped me tremendously, which has enabled me to become more active than I have in a few years. I am truly grateful for their professionalism and attention to my individual need!! I’m HIGHLY recommend them!!

Rocky Mountain PT has turned out to be an excellent choice in doing my therapy. From the ease of scheduling through the office to the way they make you feel throughout the entire process is great. I had Derrick for the majority of my appointments and he was able to help alleviate so many of the post surgery issues I was having. He was always open ears to how I was feeling and I could tell he has a passion for really trying to "help". From one small business to another its nice to see a company that truly cares. Thank You Derrick!
