Avoid Injuries
In Winter Sports


There's more to avoiding
winter sports injuries than
steering clear of fellow skiers,
dodging trees while sledding or
not skating on thin ice.
Properly warming up,
stretching and cooling down
the muscles is the key to keep-
ing yourself in the pink. Plung-
ing your body straight into a
long day on the slopes without
a warm-up and stretch is sure
to elicit complaints — from
your muscles and tendons.
Overuse of the muscles and
tendons — often brought on-by
doing too much too fast — is a
major cause of injury.
Proper conditioning is vital
for developing coordination
and agility -- whether you're a
seasoned veteran or a novice.
The warm-up gives the body a
chance to switch from a resting
state to a working mode. It also
helps bypass possible muscle
problems that can result from
plunging the body into a full
work-out without giving it a
chance to adjust to the change
in activity level. Stretching the
muscles primes them for exer-
cise by increasing flexibility
and conditioning the tissue to
boost circulation and oxygen
While warming up and
stretching before exercise
helps prevent soreness after-
ward, a cool down allows mus-
cles to slow down gradually.
During exercise, the leg mus-
cles act as pumps, helping
blood circulate from the lower
limbs back to the heart. With-
out a cool down, the pumps stop
abruptly and blood may collect
in the legs. This can cause diz-
ziness or fainting. While faint-
ing might help you attract at-
tention from the opposite sex,
cooling down is probably more
Warm ups can be as easy as
jogging slowly, doing jumping
jacks or exercising at a lower
intensity for about five min-
utes. Effective stretching
should be done slowly, without
bouncing, using sustained
movements to the point of
slight discomfort, not pain.
You should begin by holding
each stretch for three seconds,
working up to 20 minutes, as
comfort allows. Repeat each
stretch five to ten times. Total
stretch time should be five or
ten minutes.
All muscle groups in the
chest, arms, back and legs
should be stretched, but con-
centrate especially on the mus-

cle groups most involved in
your sport.
Skiers can stretch the upper
part of the hamstrings, in the
pelvis, just by bending their
hips into a crouched skiing
position. To help stretch the
top and bottom of the hamstr-
ings, sit on the floor and flex
one side of the hip and the same
knee. Slowly reach across and
touch the outstretched toes on
the opposite foot.
Just as a hot toddy or a
steaming mug of cocoa helps
you relax after a run on the
slopes, the cool down and
stretch helps your muscles ad-
just. This is as easy as switch-
ing into low gear for about five
minutes before you stop exer-
cising, followed by the same
stretches you used after your
Comfortable, properly fit-
ting equipment is also impor-
tant in avoiding injuries.
Even the best athletes, who
are about conditioning,
can injure themselves. Know-
ing when to stop exercising is
also important. Rest is one of (
the most important treat-
Athletes tend to "work
through" their pain, rather
than resting their injuries.
This often causes worse dam-
age. Rest can be relative or
absolute. An injury doesn't
mean .you have to stop exercis-
ing completely. You can keep
exercising, but do it at a lower
level than usual, one which
doesn't cause pain.
Many sports injuries can be
treated at home with ice, heat
and rest. However, any injury
which causes intense pain and
swelling, and limitation in mo-
tion needs medical attention.
Once proper diagnosis is
made, a program should begin
with relieving inflamation,
and progress to obtaining
range of motion, strength,
coordination and agility.
Often a training error or
predisposing factor, like one
leg being longer than the
other, can cause injury. Once
these matters hay': been iden-
tified, they can - Je addressed
and incorporated into a pro-
gram of injury prevention.
Snow bunnies risk other in-
juries besides muscle damage
when they partake in their
favorite winter activity.
Hypothermia, or frostbite, is
an ever-present danger. Layer-
ing clothing and covering all
exposed areas, including the
ears, head and face, helps pro-
tect against hypothermia and
wind burn.
