Snowboarding: Human body no match for gravity

In the emergency room, years ago, I dont recall seeing many snowboarders and certainly not many with lower extremity injuries its almost as if the legs are splinted together and the board, shorter than many skis, may generate less torque. Nonetheless, with more people snowboarding and the sport growing, snowboarders have joined the ranks of the injured in the ER, but with different patterns of injury. In the last 15 to 20 years, studies of snowboarder injuries come from a number of countries: the U.S., Australia, Japan, Germany, England, Sweden, Norway, Switzerland and others.
