Clinical Management of the Rock Climbing Athlete

Jennifer Sauers, PT, DPT


This two hour, evidenced-based course is designed to empower health care professionals to effectively diagnose, treat, and manage the rock climbing athlete. Coaches, climbers,  fitness professionals and students are welcome. No prerequisite rock climbing experience is needed to take this course. 

The course will begin with an overview of rock climbing basics including disciplines, styles, and human biomechanics. We will then discuss injury prevalence and outline effective rehab strategies for the most common climbing injuries in both the acute and chronic setting. A mix of photo and video with real patient examples are included to solidify concepts and help you maximize your understanding.

*This course has been approved for continuing education credit through the Federation of State Board of Physical Therapy (FSBPT) as well as the Board of Certification (BOC) for Athletic Training. If you are interested in earning CEU credit, please check out the course here. Note, a yearly subscription is required for access.



"As an avid rock climber and PTA, I LOVED this course!!! So applicable and well done. I'd love a hands-on version to see taping and techniques in person."

—  Jasce, Physical Therapist Assistant
