Figure skating features artistic poise and precision in a competitive sporting environment. The ability to produce an aesthetically pleasing performance requires a high degree of both athletic and technical skill. This article demonstrates the unique demands on figure skating athletes and vital role physiotherapists play in the long-term management of these athletes. The rehabilitation focuses on exercises that replicate the demands of on-ice training using a combination of the three core elements. It will often include dynamic resisted movements incorporating bands, weights, and high repetitions of landing positions, take-off positions, spin positions, lift positions, rotations, and other specific movements required by the athlete.
