The latest in our run of case studies comes from Tracey Tomlinson, and she knows what she’s talking about as she’s a muscular skeletal physio.
This is what Tracey had to say about the Ski Mojo:
Take it from me as a Muscular Skeletal Physio, fellow skier and someone who has a degenerative lateral meniscus myself that the Ski Mojo is absolutely amazing.
I learned about it from an acquaintance and initially thought it was a bit of a joke. However, after skiing in February and March 2019 with an alternative brace (one that wasn’t cheap!), but still experiencing pain every day, even with anti-inflammatory meds, I decided I needed to do something about it.
This led to a two-hour ‘test drive’ of a Ski Mojo at the Chill Factore indoor snow slope in Manchester.
It sounds odd but it initially felt like I was skiing from my armchair – it was so comfortable and took out all the ski chatter across the slope and moguls which really stirs up my knee pain.
The armchair feeling disappeared quickly, and I settled into the Mojo. Disengaging it a couple of times made me feel as if I’d gained two stone immediately and so I switched it back on again quickly.
The upshot is that I bought one and haven’t looked back.
During my ski trip to Obergurgl in December 19 there was no pain and no medication. I even had some spectacular falls and the Ski Mojo seemed to protect my knees as I felt it simply wouldn’t allow the joint to twist to breaking point (i.e. that point where the ACL meniscal injury occurs).
I would definitely say that if you have knee issues then the Ski Mojo is for you. Even my 24-year-old daughter is getting one for her ski holiday this year.
