Winter is upon us and so are the most common injuries of the season.
As the months turn colder and weather becomes more severe the chances of a winter-related injury increase. This might include injury from daily activity, like slipping on ice or strain from clearing snow off of cars or from pathways, or it might be from winter sports and other activities.
On average there are over 100,000 injuries a year from skiing alone with snowboarding adding another 80,000. Those lovely ice skating rinks popping up all over New York City, gracing Bryant Park and Central Park with their presence, they account for upwards of almost 50,000 winter injuries.
