Not something I recommend, but it was cheaper than PT.

 

I tell people all the time skiing is a great chiropractor.

Back in the days before ski brakes, circa 1972, I was busting through some powder among the trees at Copper (on Kneissl Red Stars, no less), when my left ski went under the end of a buried log, and the right ski continued on past the end of the log. :eek I came to a stop stretched out, on my back, head first down the hill, with the left ski firmly wedged under the log and my foot still attached to it by the runaway strap. No one saw me go down and there was no one to help untangle my gear. It took considerable effort to extricate myself from my predicament, as I couldn't pull myself up easily to undo the strap. It was a long time before I did powder among the trees again.

That wasn't your neck vertebrae we heard crunching on the sound track was it?

It reminds me of a Warren Miller comment "somewhere between 17 and 25 your warranty on your body runs out".
