Climbing Injuries Solved is the most comprehensive and detailed book on climbing injuries published to date. Beautifully illustrated and loaded with therapy and preventative tips, this is a must-read text for every serious climber, both injured and healthy.
For sure, rock climbing is a relatively safe sport—like we all tell our moms, it’s safer than driving a car!—yet at the same time climbing is a stressful activity, especially on our fingers, elbows, and shoulders. It’s hard to find an avid climber who has not suffered at least one minor injury, and subtle muscle pain and joint aches are part of many climbers’ lives. Climbing Injuries Solved provides crisp instructions on dealing with most any tweak, pang,or injury you might be experiencing….and if you are a fully healthy climber it will guide you to remaining that way!
This book will help you to:
•Learn immediate treatments that you can implement now, regardless of injury.
•Learn the newest modern techniques to heal yourself.
•Help you to customize a problem-focused recovery plan.
•Return missing ranges of motion with mobility and flexibility drills.
•Upgrade your climbing technique, making you more efficient, powerful and safe.
•Ensure your injury will remain healed with a guided reintroduction to climbing.
•Learn how to build volume, intensity and grade without getting re-injured.
•Find any missing loopholes in your care and training.
•Become an expert on the pulley tendons of the finger.
•Discover the anatomy of the shoulder and arm regions that are used in climbing.
•How to manage numerous injuries at once.
•And so much more…
Despite the lofty cover price, this book is the least expensive prevention a climber can buy preventing a return of old injuries or taking care of new ones. Dr. Lisa Erikson has treated many top climbers, including Dave Graham, Daniel Woods and Angie Payne, and Climbing Injuries Solved is the next best thing to visiting her in person!
