Sports Medicine Demands are Unique and can be Extreme in its Nature
The National Ski Areas Association (NSAA) based in Colorado, just stated that sports medicine receives new demands due to an increasing skier population age. The Republic published the organization’s collected data, showing that the average age of snowboarders and skiers went up from 33.2 to 36.5 within a span of 10 years. Moreover, visitors of age between 45 and 54 increased in proportion, which is 19.9 percent from 14, while those of age between 55 and 64 now make up 9.2 percent from a previous 4.6. This shift in demographics means there is a growing overlap with the heart attack demographic.
