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.
