Preventing back pain when ice skating

The Ice at Canalside will open next week on November 25th which means it’s ice skating season! From beginner to advanced, all ice skaters are prone to back pain/injuries. Here are some tips to prevent back pain and injuries:

  • Warm up and stretch before going out on the ice
  • Practice a good posture- leaning forward too much while skating can cause back pain
  • Strengthen your core to maintain a good balance and to support your back
