Dr. Richard Price of Rocky Mountain Orthopaedic Associates (RMOA) will travel to the World Cup competition in Sestriere, Italy, as the Adaptive U.S. Ski Team’s physician.

During the Jan. 17-23 competition, Dr. Price and physicians representing the competing countries will be available to treat the athletes in case of injuries. In addition, a physical therapist will travel with the teams to assist in prepping athletes prior to the competition.

Before joining RMOA as a Primary Care Sports Medicine physician, Dr. Price began as a sports medicine volunteer during ski races while attending the University of Utah. Working the ski scene for some time evolved into becoming the U.S. Ski Team physician during select races. After moving to Mammoth, Calif., Dr. Price worked with many of the top professional snowboarders training in the area and volunteered to work with the U.S. Snowboard Team.

This is Dr. Price’s first year working with the Adaptive U.S. Ski Team, which is sponsored by the International Paralympic Committee (IPC) Alpine Skiing – http://www.ipc-alpineskiing.org. This year’s events in Sestriere, Italy, include Downhill and Super G races. You can learn more about the Adaptive U.S. Ski Team at http://www.usskiteam.com/adaptive.
