Our skiing injuries treatment will alleviate your pain, protect you from re-injury, and improve your performance on your favorite Colorado slope.

Common Ski Injuries We Treat

Skiing can result in several injuries all across the body. Knee pain, sprains, and hand injuries can make skiing or snowboarding painful. However, knee injuries are the most common among skiers. For example, catching an edge with your ski or snowboard can result in you falling and injuring yourself. 

A skiing injury won’t go away without the proper care. When you don’t recover after injuring yourself, you are more likely to re-injure yourself. With physical therapy services from Backcountry Physical Therapy, we will treat your pain so you can get back to the slopes. Some of the skiing injuries we treat include:

  • ACL sprains
  • Foot sprains
  • Hand injuries
  • Head injuries
  • Lower back injuries
  • MCL sprains
  • Shoulder sprains
  • Wrist injuries
