  1. Jose Valero

    It is a course that brings different knowledge for therapists who work with climbers. From the diagnosis, treatment and re-education for the return to climb. In each section new knowledge was provided that I did not know before.

  2. Kurtis Munro

    Good supportive research. Great bringing concepts together for what to do in certain patients situations. I though it was a great course and increases knowledge of evidence informed climbing care.

  3. Heide Jean R Tan

    The course is an excellent tool to provide you with the knowledge that you need to become a great rock climbing clinician. Dr. Vagy really hammers down the importance of not only progressive strengthening but the inclusion of functional exercises into your POC. He provides you with specific detailed case studies with clips of the athletes climbing on the wall. It is a great way to be introduced to common movement errors in rock climbing and to start honing your ability to spot those errors.

  4. Tony Tannous

    IT is an essential course for physical therapists/climbers of all levels who want to improve their performance, prevent injuries, and recover from climbing-related injuries. The course is designed to teach therapits about the importance of proper body mechanics, injury prevention, and injury management.

    The course is well-structured and includes a comprehensive overview of the biomechanics of rock climbing. The instructors cover topics such as muscle imbalances, joint mobility, and stability, and the importance of core strength and balance. They also provide specific exercises and drills that target these areas and help climbers improve their technique and overall performance.

    One of the most valuable aspects of the course is its emphasis on injury prevention. The instructors provide detailed information on common climbing injuries, such as rotator cuff strains, finger and wrist sprains, and lower back pain. They also teach climbers how to recognize the early signs of these injuries and provide tips on how to modify their training and climbing habits to avoid them.

    In addition to injury prevention, the course also covers injury management. The instructors teach climbers how to manage and recover from common climbing injuries, including specific exercises and stretches that can help with the healing process. They also provide information on when to seek professional medical attention and how to work with a physical therapist or other healthcare professional to manage more serious injuries.

    Overall, I highly recommend the physical therapy for rock climbing course to any therapist who wants to improve their technique, prevent injuries, or treat an injury. The instructor is knowledgeable, experienced, and passionate about climbing, and their insights and expertise are invaluable for climbers as well as therapists of all levels. Whether you’re a beginner or an experienced climber, this course is an excellent investment in your climbing skills and overall health.

  5. Alexandre Gariepy

    The course used evidence-based practice and innovative ways to show specific aspects of the sport and translation to the sport. The visuals were a great way to show a standardized way to apply techniques. I really liked the case studies and the application of what we can see in clinic to sport specific or function specific. I can translate this to a lot of other sports I work with. How to use more objective data and video analysis was helpful and I like how the course always reinforced the rehab pyramid. It helps to have a structured intervention and plan.

  6. Peter Storm

    The course helps gain an understanding rock climbers needs and assessment of movement to best assist patients with rehabilitation and return to sport.

  7. Alan Ballantine

    The delivery of material was excellent with a huge amount of information. The course really gets into the information and techniques needed when treating climbers. College courses just cannot approach the intricacies in the same way this series does.

  8. Jamie Flanagan

    Enjoyed the specificity to climbing and movement analysis. Bringing more thought to test positions/maneuvers with climbing motions. Specific to PT, this course is very beneficial to not only patients who rock climb but I am also finding it beneficial for the variety of treatment ideas for patient who don’t rock climb. I also really enjoy the movement systems approach and want to continue down that approach to physical therapy.

  9. Alexis Lasalle

    A comprehensive course on common and less common climbing injuries. The course allows you to move from theory to practice without difficulty. Definitely an essential course if you treat climbers in your clinical practice.

  10. Conor Thompson

    Evidence based research and video demonstrations of evaluations and interventions. Great course to improve your ability to asses and treat climbers head to toe with evidence based clinical applications.

  11. Kayla Eagle

    This course is a must if you work with climbers. It condenses all of the research done on climbing injuries and rehab specific to climbing injuries. The material is presented in an easy to follow course on what the most common injuries are for each joint, the relevant anatomy, and an easy to follow pyramid approach to rehab these injuries that are very unique to climbing.

  12. Tsai Yong Chu

    The material was presented clearly. I enjoyed the analysis of climbing on the wall.

  13. Andrew Koenig

    This provide those clinicians that area treating climbers (or climbers themselves) the knowledge, skills, and abilities to effectively manager climbers impairments.

  14. Cory Clyde McKinnon

    This course was fantastic! I enjoyed the information and application to climbing with great examples of rock climbing injuries and how to work them through a rehab protocol. I would definitely recommend this class to anyone interested in treating rock climbers.

  15. Amanda Fetzer

    The video examples on how to analyze different movements were really helpful. The case examples were useful as well. It was a great look at the entire body of a climber and how to start piecing together how they move on the wall with how they are presenting in the clinic
