Be Ski-Ready This Season with a Pre-Hab Ski Session at Rudding Park, Harrogate Pre- and Post- Ski Holiday Packages to Maximise Enjoyment and Minimise Injury
This ski season it is all about the ‘Pre-Hab’, the term given to exercises undertaken to prevent injury occurring whilst on the slopes. Rudding Park Spa, Harrogate, is pleased to introduce three Pre-Hab and Re-Hab winter sports packages, available from November through to March 2019, to ensure skiers and snowboarders are well prepared for their winter holidays.
Injuries commonly associated with skiing and snowboarding include knee ligament damage; regularly caused by rotational and torsional load placed on the knees during carving and downhill skiing, as well as potential falls. Women are two to eight times more likely to rupture knee ligaments than men due to female biomechanics.
Matthew Birch, Sports Rehabilitation Specialist at Rudding Park Spa comments: “Don’t just think about rehabilitation once you’ve incurred a sports injury – when it comes to skiing you need to be planning ahead to prevent an injury occurring.”
With this in mind, Rudding Park has developed three new winter sports packages for guests and locals, led by Matthew Birch:
The 2-Hour Pre-Hab Package – £80pp
The sessions start with a biomechanical assessment looking at postural alignment and the biomechanics of movement to determine the most likely injuries that the individual could suffer. Following assessment, guests are taken to the gym and taught a series pre-hab exercises that are tailored to prevent injuries based on their biomechanical assessment results. A variety of equipment in the gym including a Bosu ball can be used for overall balance and stability, this is key when preparing for a winter sports holiday. Guests can then enjoy one hour in the members’ gym to continue practising the exercises and relax in the steam room.
The 3-Hour Re-Hab Package – £115pp
Once back from their week on the slopes, guests can return to Rudding Park for the follow-up Re-Hab session which includes an assessment and exercises, followed by two-hour access to the Roof Top Spa. Here guests can use the extensive hydrotherapy and thermotherapy experiences to support their personalised rehabilitation programme.
The 5-hour Pre-Hab with Re-Hab Ski package – £190pp
Guests can purchase the Pre-Hab and Re-Hab packages as one package; enabling them to both maximise their holiday enjoyment and maintain their new-found fitness upon return.
All packages are subject to availability and pre-booking is essential. For further information on the Pre-Hab Ski packages at Rudding Park, please visit https://www.ruddingpark.co.uk/offers/spa/ski-pre-hab-re-hab/
