Welcome to Sapphire Coast Physiotherapy

Ski Assessment Service

Snowy Mountains Physiotherapy has recently introduced a new service that will help snow enthusiasts of all levels from beginners to professional. The specialised Ski Assessment service is offered by Eliza Graham, a Physiotherapist that has a long history as a Mogul and Aerial skiier and coach. 

Eliza has recently returned from 3 months working overseas with Australia's top Moguls skiiers.

We see many skiiers who complain of early fatigue, knee pain or discomfort,  stiffness or pain after a day on the slopes without realising there are ways they can get their body ready for skiing.

Physiotherapists, with their advanced knowledge of physiology, biomechanics, motor control and injury management, are uniquely suited to address all the factors that may contribute to skiiers and boarders not feeling their best when out on the slopes.

Many also leave with a specific exercise program to address strength or flexibility limitations. This helps prevent future injuries or pain whilst on the snow.

This specialist snow assessment program is a recent addition to other sport-specific services, including running assessments, and bike fitting assessments which are offered by Sapphire Coast Physiotherapy.

What we Offer

Ski Fit appointments can be made at Snowy Mountains Physiotherapy's Jindabyne and Cooma clinics where Eliza Graham will measure, assess, video analyse your style and movement.

The first stage of the assessment involves:

  • Discussion of your skiing / boarding ability and future goals.
  • Injury history
  • Discussion of current on and off snow training load, volume and intensity, as well as any warm-up undertaken prior to beginning on snow each day.
  • Discussion of current equipment.

The second stage of the assessment involves:

  • Overall body assessment, measuring flexibility, strength, muscular endurance, stability and symmetry.
  • Functional tests assessing stability, knee control and landing technique.
     

The third stage of the assessment involves:

  • Provision of specific exercise program to address strength or flexibility limitations.
  • A comprehensive report can be provided to coach or trainer.

The appointment takes approximately 1 hour and the cost is $138 and can be claimed from your health fund as physiotherapy services.

What to Wear/Bring

To allow as much time as possible to dedicate to you and your big fit please bring:

  • Supportive footwear
  • Appropriate gym clothing, preferably shorts or tight fiitting clothes.
