Do you know the most common injuries in freeskiing?
If you can avoid getting injured, you can just have fun with your friends and learn new tricks!
Freeskiing is a sport that is developing constantly. This leads to jumps and tricks becoming more difficult. Falls are the most common cause of injuries.
Unbalanced landings, landing too hard after a jump and other elements cause strain to the knees, hips and back. The knees are particularly vulnerable to injury. If a skier lands on an outstretched arm, they can fracture in the wrist or the carpus. Sprained wrists and fingers are also common, especially with beginners.
