A Climbing Injury Podcast
Today we jump in to the nasty topic of feet. Or those feet which have been ruined by climbing shoes, cramped quarters, and pulling hard.
I'm excited to cover a new Spanish research study on foot pain in climbers (April 2022)and what the takeaway is for self-care, home-care and prevention.

Are you an Injured Elite Climber?
OR one Needing HELP solving an injury?
If you are making the decision whether to climb on an injury or to give up a season to let it heal, you might just want a second opinion. Bring in your x-rays, MRIS or diagnostic ultrasounds and your other doctors guidance so we can have a CHAT one on one to decide what is best for you.
When you are making big decisions that can affect your sponsorships, your podium finish, or your future in climbing as a sport, it's not worth making a rash decision.
Together I'll give you my recommendations from different perspectives: If you were my patient, if you were my brother or sister, and based on what I have seen from my climbers who chose either path.
Sometimes its not cut or dry and both decisions have major repercussions.
>> Doing big climbing moves on injury watch zones.
>> Are you ready to redpoint again?
>> HOW LIKELY is your injury to progress with use?
>> Does time off make a difference?
>> Should I keep pushing to perform? Take a week or month off? What are my risks?
>> Insight into how to manage past injuries to keep them from coming back again or getting worse.
This month, all climbers get a copy of my free E-BOOK, Climbing Injuries Solved when they sign up for a visit. I'm excited to work with you!
Professional climbers and elite athletes are exceptionally predisposed to worsening and unhealed injuries that may progress into surgery and end of sport. Guidance is based on the BEST choice for them and their situation. and does not match recommendations for other athletes as we are not always focused on prevention (or returning their body back to IDEAL or TEXTBOOK). Unless you are competing in a World Cup, Olympics or Qualifier, the discussion and decisions are based on your injury but also take into account how treatment recommendations affect your future in climbing in the long run as well as short term and are treated as such.
Professional or elite climbers might qualify for discounted care at my clinic. Contact me for details to learn more. ;-)
