In a three-year study, a total of 184 junior skiers and 52 elite athletes of the Swiss ski team (national, as well as A, B and C squads) were examined with regard to performance and health-related parameters.
Focusing on sustainable maintenance of the health of the young/prospective athletes and an efficient use of their athletic potential. Sound principles of injury prevention and injury rehabilitation as well as early diagnosis and treatment concepts were generated, from which not only amateur athletes but all patients will be able benefit.
In addition, these findings are currently being implemented into the (overall?) training at Swiss-Ski.
