Ski And Snowboard Safely

The popularity of skiing and snowboarding in Pennsylvania carries with it an increase in injuries related to the activities. Skiiers are more likely to suffer injuries to the lower parts of the body and for snowboarders, it's the upper portions, according to Dr. A. Herbert Alexander, spokesman for the American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons. To avoid the likelihood of getting hurt, Dr. Alexander recommends not fighting against the inevitable fall, retiring to the lodge when you're body tells you you've had enough, and to always wear a helmet.
