StoneFit: Sportsmetrics™ - Winter Conditioning

A 6-week program scientifically proven to help avoid ACL injuries and improve performance.

2 sessions per week, Mon & Wed with a Sportsmetrics™ certified physical therapist. 

$350 per participant

Some knee injuries simply cannot be avoided; but many non-contact injuries are the result of poor technique or lack of strength and conditioning. Skiing and snowboarding use muscles differently from other sports. It’s easy to get fatigued and slip into bad form, which puts you at risk of landing or falling badly and tearing your Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL).

Our 6-week, highly individualized injury prevention program is designed to build your speed, agility, flexibility and strength; and to train your body to position itself safely when skiing or snowboarding downhill and landing jumps.

The program combines the knowledge and ability of The Stone Clinic physical therapists with a series of evidence-based Sportsmetrics™ drills and plyometric exercises to:

  • Increase neuromuscular control
  • Improve postural control of the upper body and trunk
  • Correct imbalances in muscular strength
  • Correct jump/land technique

Shape up for the ski season and prevent injury.

We like to do everything possible to rebuild the knee joint with biologic tissues rather than artificial materials to help delay the time in which an artificial joint replacement is necessary.
Untethered Athlete
All athletes get injured. The best ones use the injury as an excuse to come back better than they were before they were hurt. Others may not be able to. This may, in part, be due to their inability to let go of the self-image they are attached to. Here are some tips for avoiding that trap.
The Great Stem Cell Divide
Stem cell therapies are sprouting like weeds. This is a good thing. The medical community is rushing into the biologic sciences, opening up the field of stimulating tissues to heal—rather than suppressing them with steroids, anti-inflammatories, or joint replacement surgeries. Here is my take on where the field is now and where it is going.
