Climbing Shoulder Injuries And Prevention

Climbing Shoulder Injuries And Prevention

Nicros – Climbing Shoulder Injuries and Prevention – The shoulder joint takes a lot of punishment from climbing, especially in those working in the areas of very hard bouldering, steep terrain, and sport-specific training. A few of the common climbing shoulder injuries that we see among climbers are an impingement, tendonitis, subluxation, and a tear of the rotator cuff. The shoulder joint is very complex. A full diagnosis can be difficult and will likely require expert consultation and an MRI scan to detect small tears and other subtle injuries.

Jurassic Climbing Coaches are very aware of shoulder climbing injuries and work to prevent the onset through antagonist and flexibility training. Here is a link to an article regarding shoulder injuries that we first wrote in 2016 – Shoulder Strengthening and Mobility. Please also have a read of this as well as the full Nicros article below.
