You know when you've been sitting on an injury you got when you went out climbing that one time and hoped it just went away after a while? Now it's been 2 months and you're at the gym frustrated at a problem because it's got that one move that requires you to use your injured hand that you just can't crimp on like you used to.
Well you need to come down and have Nick Foulds Osteopath Brisbane from Move Osteopathy drop some knowledge on you. Nick is an expert with a Bachelors in Science and Masters in Osteopathy. He will be hosting a clinic along with K2 during which he will be covering regular issues with hands, fingers, wrists and shoulders as well as hips strain and ankle support.
The aim is to inform and educate the climbing community in regards to rehab and injury prevention along with good habits to avoid the necessity for rehab. Nick will cover both verbal info with some slides/images and also a physical aspect where he will run through some exercises and drills to keep you climb fit!
We have limited seating available so be sure to hit the "Attending" status to book yourself a spot!
