Wintergreen Adaptive Sports
Shenandoah University “PT & SKI Program”
at Wintergreen Adaptive Sports (WAS)
Individuals with spinal cord injuries, amputation, degenerative diseases of the nervous system, MS, muscular dystrophy, CP, spina bifida, or other ambulation challenges, are invited to participate in a program that combines Physical Therapy and Adaptive Skiing. Almost anyone who walks with canes, crutches, or walker, or uses a wheelchair for mobility can participate in this unique program.
The Initial Evaluation by a Physical Therapist student, under the supervision of a licensed PT, takes place at Wilson Workforce Rehabilitation Center in Fishersville in December. After the evaluation, there are 4 sessions of approximately 1.5 hours of physical therapy focused on your current level of fitness and impairments, followed by 1.5 hours of on-snow instruction with the WAS staff and a SU PT student.
Each session is 4 weeks long, and is on Thursday only.
Session 1: Jan 10, 17, 24, 31. Morning or afternoon session available.
Session 2: Feb 7, 14, 21, 28. Morning or afternoon session available.
WAS provides all adaptive ski or ride equipment and a helmet (required for sit-down ski equipment).
Please contact Dr. Melissa Wolff-Burke, PT at Shenandoah University at 540-545-7238 or email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
