Post-injury rehab and training for climbers

Have You Injured Yourself Climbing? Let Physical Therapy Ease Your Pain.

If you’re a climber, chances are good that you’ve had an upper extremity injury at some point, and you know exactly how painful and debilitating it can be. Many people receive this kind of injury and do not seek professional advice, so they end up unable to continue climbing at the same level of difficulty that they’re used to. This is not the way to go!

You don’t have to continue dealing with the pain alone. With expert therapists who are also experienced climbers, MoveMend Rehab and Performance in Seattle, WA is becoming known as the go-to place for post-injury rehab and training for climbers. If you’ve recently sustained an upper extremity injury, contact our office today to learn more about our physical and occupational therapy services.
