StoneFit: Sportsmetrics™ - Winter Conditioning

A 6-week program scientifically proven to help avoid ACL injuries and improve performance.

2 sessions per week, Mon & Wed with a Sportsmetrics™ certified physical therapist. 

$350 per participant

Some knee injuries simply cannot be avoided; but many non-contact injuries are the result of poor technique or lack of strength and conditioning. Skiing and snowboarding use muscles differently from other sports. It’s easy to get fatigued and slip into bad form, which puts you at risk of landing or falling badly and tearing your Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL).

Our 6-week, highly individualized injury prevention program is designed to build your speed, agility, flexibility and strength; and to train your body to position itself safely when skiing or snowboarding downhill and landing jumps.

The program combines the knowledge and ability of The Stone Clinic physical therapists with a series of evidence-based Sportsmetrics™ drills and plyometric exercises to:

  • Increase neuromuscular control
  • Improve postural control of the upper body and trunk
  • Correct imbalances in muscular strength
  • Correct jump/land technique

Shape up for the ski season and prevent injury.

Fix a meniscus to avoid arthritis
A recent study suggested that meniscus surgery doesn't help. Studies can be misleading. Even small losses of meniscus tissue lead to big changes in force concentration on the tibia (shin bone) and eventually arthritis.
If you want to be treated with a better than 75% chance of success—and if you value excellence as much as kindness—I suggest you demand that creativity be part of the doctor’s repertoire.
