Use of Dry Needling for Hand Injuries in Rock Climbers

January 12, 2022 • Dry Needling

Rock climbing has rapidly become a popular sport for a diverse range of enthusiasts – from high level indoor competitive climbers to extreme outdoor enthusiasts to recreational dablers, climbing injuries are also becoming more prevalent in physical therapy clinics. Hand injuries in rock climbing are particularly challenging and frustrating injuries for both clinicians and climbers alike. In many cases, climbers are left with persistent pain and minimal guidance in managing these injuries, leading to an unnecessarily long absence from sport. Functional Dry Needling plays a significant role in facilitating a reduction in pain, improvement in motor recruitment and ultimately an earlier and more successful return to rock! Join this webinar on October 12 for a discussion of clinical applications of Dry Needling in treating various hand injuries that impact rock climbers of all types.
