A 60-yo skier said you “use it or lose it” but it really isn’t that simple, is it? People age, the tendons, ligaments, and cartilage become less flexible, slower to regenerate, and injured with incomplete repair.
Yesterday, we lost a great soul when Stein Erickson, Norwegian Olympian and Johnny Appleseed of Skiing in America passed away of “natural causes” at age 88.
The first day of snowboarding often involves falling and yesterday was no exception. When I got home, I had a sprained right wrist and a pretty bad case of whiplash. I couldn’t even sit up before I went to bed, having to roll to the side to adjust the pillows.
So I took six RECHARGE capsules and slept for eight hours and no wrist pain and barely a sore neck. And bonus! I was able to ski all day today!
I am in trouble. I had 20+ things to do yesterday and somehow missed the fine print on my to-do list. I got it 97% right but forgot to bring my TA-65 skiing with me to Mammoth Mountain. Ugh.
Lindsay Vonn was hurt yesterday while training and if you know her, please forward this video to her about repairing from sports injury that I did. It will certainly help her recover more quickly based on my 6 years of clinical experience.
