MOJI OVERVIEW

The majority of injuries in skiing are sprains, followed by fractures and lacerations and dislocations.  Though ski equipment improvements have helped reduce ski injuries, there are still a significant number of such injuries.  Initial first aid for injuries consists of the RICE protocol:  Rest, Ice, Compression, and Elevation.  ACSM recommends injuries be promptly evaluated and treated by appropriate medical personnel.
