In this Episode, “The Climbing Doctor” sat down with Chris Kalous and Andrew Bisharat from the The RunOut podcast to talk about what has changed with climbing and injuries over the past 10 years.
This podcast episode covers a wide range of topics related to rock climbing and injuries. The discussion starts off focused around when The Climbing Doctor first appeared on an episode of Enormocast with Chris over seven years ago and then traces the evolution of the sport and physical therapy during that time. The conversation runs the gamut of everything from finger tweaks to back pain, and ultimately meanders into a meta analysis of how one comes to be an expert in training and injury prevention. Chris serves as a buffer between Andrew and The Climbing Doctor as they debate their stances and biases on everything related to climbing, training, and injuries.
The below topics are discussed throughout the episode:
What has changed over the past 10 years in climbing
Youth crushers and their body types
Pulley injuries and stages of healing
Does physical therapy really work?
Climbing physical therapists and climbing trainers
Finger length and its influence on injuries
