Snowboarding is a winter sport akin to skiing that uses a board with bindings for the feet to move downhill.
The injury pattern in snowboarding is related to the equipment and the snowboarder’s stance. Snowboarders have to fix both of their feet on a single board. They use their arms, unlike skiing in which the skier has poles, for balance. Typically, snowboarding injuries are falls which may be broken by outstretched arms and hyperextended wrists. The snowboarder’s sacrum and occiput are also common impact points. Collisions can also cause injury, as snowboarders can move downhill at speeds as high as 40 mph.
