Rock climbing, ice climbing and bouldering demand full body conditioning, including optimal stability, strength and flexibility. Fortunately, we’ve treated recreational and professional rock climbers for over a decade, helping them recover from common overuse injuries while enabling them to optimize their performance and minimize chance of re-injury. We address the key components of core, shoulder, and hip stabilization, full body strength, precise joint mobility, and conditioning whether the need is for in-season, off-season, ice or rock climbing, or for indoor or outdoor climbing. Your program is always tailored to meet your body’s needs based on a thorough movement assessment so you can reach your sport-specific goals.
Pamela Pack, professional off-width climber, has been working with our therapy team for more than four years during her off-season. She credits our rehabilitation expertise as a primary factor in her success. Watch this interview by Pamela Pack in which she describes her rehabilitation after a serious injury that threatened her return to climbing.
For many people in Western Montana, skiing is a way of life. That’s true for the majority of us at Alpine too. We love to play in the snow on our skis and boards, and we know it takes work to stay conditioned for long days on the hill. Whether you are recovering from an acute injury or trying to eliminate a decade-old nagging pain, we are here to help. Along with a full body movement assessment, our approach includes tests and measures that are specific to the conditioning demands of skiing or boarding. Our exam is designed to also flesh out potential weaknesses and compensatory movement patterns. Based on our findings, you will be guided through a comprehensive rehabilitation program to improve core and hip stability, general strength and flexibility, as well as performance with a focus on ‘good’ movement. Our ultimate aim is to optimize your gains, so you can get back on the hill in no time, confident and strong in your ability to charge onward through the deep cold smoke.
