Overuse Injuries in Alpine Skiers
Overuse injuries are common in all sports and also in Alpine Ski. In this discipline they can happen in the dry-land trainings or on the snow, both in races or training. The first ones are common to all the sports, while on the snow are uniques for the Winter Sports. New training techniques have increased the workload of some anatomical districts, going to increase the incidence of overuse injuries.
