Snow Sports Injuries

The Adventure Medic have recently published the ‘Practical Approach to Snowsports Injuries (Part II)’. The second in a series of articles by Dr Edi Albert, explores knee and shoulder injuries discussing how the approach of a ski doctor may differ from a hospital-based doctor or surgeon.
