Abstract

Skiing is an exciting winter sport; however, it is
defined as a high-risk sport for significant
injuries. Among upper body and lower
body injuries, common traumas to the body in
downhill skiers are sprains of the ulnar collateral
ligament (UCL), which is part of the thumb joint,
and tibia fractures.
The analysis and research will outline the
following of each injury:
• Mechanism of injury
• Treatment
• Rehabilitation
• Prevention
