How Chiropractic Care Can Prevent A Snowboard/Skiing Injury

When the snow starts falling, it’s time to start riding. If you’re planning your trip to Mammoth Mountain, Big Bear, or Tahoe, you’ll want to make sure that your body is in good condition for hitting the slopes. Accidents happen, but you can greatly decrease your chances of sustaining an injury by taking a few precautions.




Fascial Integrative Treatment, or F.I.T., is an advanced soft-tissue system that treats problems with muscles, tendons, ligaments, fascia, nerves, and joints. Whether you’ve sustained injuries in the past or experience issues regularly, it will help your muscles quickly recover and heal. F.I.T. is a manual hands-on therapy that corrects the dysfunctions that soft-tissues can undergo. When you put any kind of stress on your body, scar tissue adhesions can accumulate in your muscles, tendons, ligaments, and nerves. When this problem goes unaddressed, the result is pain, discomfort, and lack of mobility. However, by using F.I.T., our chiropractors will be able to break up these restrictive adhesions, re-instate normal tissue flexibility, and restore balance and stability to the affected area.


Massage Therapy


Massages may be relaxing, but they’re also extremely beneficial for your body’s well being. Not only do massages relieve pain, increase flexibility and mobility and reduce the chances of a reoccurring injury, but they also aid in speeding up recovery.


At Next Level Wellness, our chiropractors work with you to decide what type of massage will benefit you the most. If you’re planning on snowboarding or skiing, you’ll most likely receive either our deep tissue massage or our sports massage. Our deep tissue massage relies on an advanced understanding of anatomy and deep muscle tissue structure. This massage can be combined with other massage techniques and is helpful in physical therapy and sports therapy to treat arthritis, tendinitis, and muscular problems. Our sports massage involves optimizing athletic performance, speeding up recovery, and preventing injuries.
