CLIMBING INJURY TREATMENT

Rock climbing has a special subset of injuries. These can range from finger pulley ruptures to foot fractures and are typically more difficult for non-specialized, non-climbing practitioners to diagnose.

Our two principal physiotherapists, Alan Wan and Joy Kim are both climbers. They have vast experience and interest in the diagnosis, treatment and rehabilitation of climbing-specific injuries. Let them help get you back to your peak condition.

 

RESIDENT ROCK CLIMBERS AT ANYTIME PHYSIO

Alan Wan
Alan is a Brisbane-trained musculoskeletal physiotherapist with a wealth of knowledge on neck pain and upper limb injuries including shoulder bursitis and rotator cuff pain, wrist, hand and finger pain. He is completing his PhD in Physiotherapy and Pain Science at the University of Queensland and the Royal Brisbane and Women’s Hospital. He is a regular at Kangaroo Point Cliffs, dropping into Urban Climb Newstead, Milton or West End if the weather requires. His current go-to pair of shoes are the La Sportiva Solutions.
Joy Kim
Joy is a physiotherapist and Clinical Pilates instructor with a special interest in injuries to the lower back, hips, knees and ankles. She has worked in musculoskeletal physiotherapy practices across Brisbane and has provided field coverage for the whole gamut of sports from basketball, to netball and even rock climbing and bouldering. The latter was most likely an excuse to get on the boulders at Urban Climb Milton! She also frequents the cliffs at Kangaroo Point, as well as Urban Climb Newstead and Milton.
