Injury Prevention for Climbers: A Functional Approach

Arc'teryx Climbing Academy

Squamish, BC: July 22, 2017

We’ve all suffered from pesky overuse injuries. They can be debilitating, painful, and a constant frustration. Finger, elbow and shoulder injuries are the most common, with neck, back and knee injuries not far behind. Many of these injuries are preventable. Identifying early warning signs and the breakdown of climbing form are critical to avoiding them. This workshop is designed to help you understand how climbing form breaks down and how to correct it. You’ll also learn to look for problem areas in your training programs and how to address them so that you can prevent these injuries from creeping up. This is a hands-on workshop so come prepared to move your body!

Demystifying Myths in the Confusing World of Rehab  

Arc'teryx Climbing Academy

Squamish, BC: July 22, 2017

Knowledge on how best to rehab injuries has never been so easily accessible. Unfortunately, there's an obscene amount of misinformation that can be both deceptive and harmful. So let's get to it and demystify the good from the crap. We'll use science to have a good hard look at common treatment strategies. Anything is fair game: functional training, PNF, mobility work, stability work, pain science, ultrasound, IMS, acupuncture, cryotherapy, manual therapy, cold laser, IFC, TENS, heat therapy, nerve flossing, tendon loading, movement interventions, and more! Bring your questions and get ready to have a lively discussion on what will actually help you rehab your climbing injuries.
