North Wales, PA -- (SBWIRE) -- 01/16/2019 -- As the top-rated physical therapy offices in Horsham, PA, Total Performance Physical Therapy is dedicated to helping clients overcome their injuries and get back to enjoying their favorite activities through a personalized approach to physical therapy. Now, the organization is offering information and advice on how snow enthusiasts can prepare their bodies for the rigors of the skiing and snowboarding season.

For instance, because of the stress and pressure that skiing and snowboarding place on the hips and lower extremities, it's critical to ensure a wide range of motion in those areas of the body. By stretching hamstrings, quads, and especially the hip flexors, it can help to reduce fatigue while on the slopes and even decrease the chance of an injury.

Another area of the body that is crucial to skiing is the core. Once the muscles in the core begin to tire, it can lead to a loss of proper form, which in turn can decrease strength and balance while on the trails. By performing exercises such as lunges, squats, and jumps, skiers can increase both their strength and stability while enhancing their ability on the slopes.

Stamina is another factor that plays a significant role in many winter sports, but especially in skiing and snowboarding. By incorporating endurance training, like running, sprinting, or even bicycling, it can teach the body to more efficiently supply oxygen to muscles, leading to more energy and invigoration for carving up the trails.
