Injury Prevention Workshops
Injury Prevention Series = PREHAB
Kara Rechard and Jenny Ploss teach injury prevention workshops for rock climbers (and cyclists, stay tuned!). Currently, our workshops focus on shoulder injuries--we teach you all about shoulder anatomy, how the shoulder works when you climb, and common shoulder injuries. Then we make you practice movement and warmup techniques that you can start using today to improve your climbing form and reduce your risk of injury for your shoulder.

April 5-7, 2019. The MovNat cert is hands on – all the way. Level 1 is all about the basics. We show you how movements are broken down and taught. We start with the stuff that everybody needs – Ground Movement. Crawl. Deep Squat. Get up and get down. Most importantly you learn how to think and talk about movement as a professional. You’ll learn that it has a specific language, foundations, and progressions. We teach you how to rebuild movement capability from the ground up. It’s the foundation for everything.
