Our Approach

Nordic ski program treatment plans may include:

  • A comprehensive evaluation, including assessment of joint mechanics, identifying muscle imbalances, and analyzing stability and control with dynamic ski-specific movement testing 
  • A skier-specific rehabilitation program focused on improving joint mechanics and movement coordination, normalizing muscle function, increasing strength and power, and developing ski mechanics efficiency
  • A video analysis assessment to evaluate technical aspects of skiing, both on and off snow
    Ski-specific exercise program to improve muscle balance and strength, flexibility, power, coordination, and technique
