When muscles are used heavily during physical activities, they can become tighter and less flexible. And when muscles lose their flexibility, they are susceptible to pulling and tearing, according to the Dublin Physiotherapy Clinic.
Water skiers can suffer these types of injuries because they rely heavily on their muscles. Mature skiers in particular are susceptible because they tend to have less flexibility in their muscles already.
A great way to prevent water skiing injuries is through massage. Massage can improve flexibility, expand range of motion and help the connective tissue heal in your muscles – all of which help to prevent injuries.
