Do you feel nervous about returning to skiing this winter? You are not alone!
Enjoying skiing is about confidence. If you feel nervous you'll not only fear injury, it's also been proven that it actually does increase the risk of injury. Wimbledon Clinics have a proven track record of getting skiers back to skiing safely after they've had an injury and particularly those who’ve had surgery.
Here's how we get skiers back safely onto the snow even within a year of major knee surgery.
- A personalised strength programme, that is specific not only to you but also for skiing.
- An in-depth assessment at Wimbledon Clinics with our physiotherapist who specialises in ski injury to see whether you are “ski-fit”. The assessment at Wimbledon Clinics will need to be booked as soon as possible to ensure enough preparation for the 'Ski Day'.
- A whole day (Saturday, 19 November) to work with an instructor on snow at the Snow Centre, Hemel Hempstead, where you will start with very basic techniques and build up your confidence until you are skiing comfortably.
- You’ll be monitored throughout the day by a knee injury specialist to spot any parts of your technique that may put you at risk of further injury.
We've been doing this for nine years, and all of us are passionate skiers. Your team of experienced specialists will include knee surgeon Jonathan Bell, specialist physiotherapist James Vickers and ski instructor Phil Hopper from the Warren Smith Academy. They have worked out exactly what's needed to get you back to skiing with confidence.
The package price of £295 (Early Bird price expires on the 16th October) includes an hour long assessment with James Vickers to see if you are ski fit and if not, he will develop a bespoke rehabilitation programme. The price will also include day admission to the snow centre including lift pass, skis, boots and instruction with the Warren Smith Academy. Both Jonathan Bell and James Vickers will attend on the day to help with questions and any niggles.
