Physical Therapy and Skiing

Augusta Free Press highlights a program from Shenandoah University “that combines physical therapy and adaptive skiing.”

“Almost anyone who walks with canes, crutches, or walker, or uses a wheelchair for mobility can participate in this unique program, offered by the Shenandoah University PT & SKI Program at Wintergreen Adaptive Sports.”

“The initial evaluation by a physical therapist student, under the supervision of a licensed PT, takes place at Woodrow Wilson Rehabilitation Center in Fishersville in December. After the evaluation, there are 4 sessions of approximately 1.5 hours of physical therapy focused on your current level of fitness and impairments, followed by 1.5 hours of on-snow instruction with the Wintergreen Adaptive Sportsstaff and an SU PT student.”
