This course is an introduction for medical providers who are interested in advancing their knowledge in assessing, diagnosing and treating distal upper extremity injuries with rock climbers. The material is highly interactive with an emphasis on case-based learning and practical application. Participants will learn about the most common climbing injuries in the distal upper extremity, how to analyze climbing movement contributing to the injuries and how to develop climbing-specific intervention programs. At the conclusion of the course, participants will have a greater understanding of how to rehabilitate distal upper extremity rock-climbing injuries.
Upon completion of this course, participants will:
- Recognize common injuries in the distal upper extremity of rock climbers
- Utilize tablet-based apps to analyze climbing movement
- Prescribe climbing technique drills based on identified movement faults while climbing
- Perform research-based climbing assessments that are climbing-specific.
