Snowboard injuries


Wrist Injuries

Snowboard injuries tend to be to the upper limb. We are 3x more likely to injure the upper limb than the lower limb, and twice as likely to have a fracture compared with skiers.

The most common area for injury is the wrist and then the shoulder.

Snowboarding relies on balance. The feet are fixed with non release bindings. Momentum being achieved by movement of the upper body and balance is achieved by the upper limbs.
