In this episode, Nate and I sit down with Allison Stowers, a Chattanooga-based climber and physical therapist. We discuss the most common climbing injuries that Allison sees in her clinic: shoulders and hip-region injuries. We also talk about how to self-diagnose, when you should see a doctor, what to do about an injury, and most importantly, how to prevent them.
Allison has a very human approach to physical therapy that I really value. If you're in the Chatty area, you can see her at Peak Fitness and Physical Therapy.
During this podversation, we mention several things that Allison believes will be helpful for everyone to know. Here are some links and videos to check out:
