Climbing Injury Rehab and Prevention

Ross Bodine, PT, DPT, FAAOMPT, is your go to guy. His passion for climbing has given him a deep understanding of the unique movement requirements of the sport. The knowledge gained during his physical therapy fellowship and ongoing education, as well as his own experiences as a climber for 12+ years, will help you climb with the confidence you never imagined possible.

Alta PT, and specifically my work with Ross Bodine, has helped take my climbing to the next level through increased mobility and ultimately, reduced pain. My sessions with Ross have been incredibly thorough. I appreciate his in depth analysis of my "pain points", but he also goes beyond to pinpoint the root of the problem, tackling imbalances that I never knew were related. His in office manipulations, as well as prescribed at home exercises have completely resolved lumbrical strains in the hand, allowing me to resume training and feel the strongest I've ever felt. I've struggled with tension headaches, aggravated by training and climbing, for 15 years, but my recent sessions with Ross have significantly improved my shoulder mobility and reduced pain in my neck. I'm grateful for the insights Ross provides, and the friendly atmosphere of Alta's clinic. It's great to know I have a team to turn to when tweaks and injuries inevitably pop up!

Climb with Confidence

Just because you can muscle your way through a move, doesn’t mean you should always try to do it that way… but if it happens from time to time that’s okay. Because trying hard with muscles does feel pretty cool too. And let’s face it, feeling cool is sometimes more important than moving efficiently.
