Firstly, in order to effectively prevent injuries while competing in biathlon, make sure your training intensifies gradually, and you don’t train too hard too soon. Stretching also helps to ensure your muscles are in good shape ahead of training or racing.
For lower back pain, it’s recommended that biathletes utilise lower-back support when skiing, or wearing other protective clothing to reduce impact damage.
As for other injuries, physiotherapy is a good route, and a range of techniques from heat/ice therapy to stretching exercises can help you get back to full strength.
At Athlete’s Choice Massage, you can rely on our licensed massage therapists for a massage which can help get you back on your feet.
