How to treat common skiing injuries
We recommend visiting a physiotherapist for treatment and advice on treating common ski related injuries. They may recommend the following treatments.
- Strains or Sprains. Many sprains and strains can be treated with the RICE method: Rest, Ice, Compression and Elevation. A physiotherapist can assist with the recovery as well. If the sprain is more severe you may require surgery.
- Meniscal Tearing. Simple meniscal tears may be treated with the RICE method and anti-inflammatory medications such as ibuprofen. Advanced tears may require surgery. Surgery for meniscal tears are minimally invasive and allow for quicker recovery time.
- Ligament Tearing. Ligament tears will generally always require surgery. A torn ligament rebuild uses a tissue graft, as the ligament will not generally heal properly otherwise. Surgery can be minimally invasive however these injuries may take considerable time to heal.
Play it safe: Consult a doctor if you experience unusually intense and persistent ski related knee pain.
