Are You Injured And Struggling To Get Back To Rock Climbing?

A Personal Message From Dr. AJ Cohen

If you answered “Yes” to any of these questions, you are in the right place!

It’s very common to think that pain caused by a rock climbing injury is nothing and that it will go away on its own.

It’s also common to think of it as something that happens to all climbers and if you just keep pushing through it it’ll go away eventually. If that’s happening to you, you’re definitely not alone, and we hear this type of thing all the time.

In fact, pain from climbing is one of the most common problems that we see in our clinic.

Take John B. As An Example...

“Dr. AJ really knows what he is talking about. I went to him after my shoulder dislocated again and he got me working and stabilized my shoulder for rock climbing. I am so thankful for the work that I have done with him and would recommend him to anyone who wants to get back to doing what they love.“

Before Coming Into Up And Running PT, Many Of Our Rock Climbers Suffering From Injuries From Rock Climbing Are Told…

The Truth About Rock Climbing Injuries Is:

"We Help Runners And Active Adults In The Fort Collins Area Overcome Injury And Be Stronger Than Ever, Avoid Unnecessary Time Off, All Without Medications, Injections, Or Surgery."

Take Corban L. As An Example...

“I worked with AJ to address pain in my lat muscle which was preventing me from rock climbing at a higher level. AJ’s approach is much different than a traditional PT. He focused on teaching along the way so I understood why we were doing certain techniques or exercises. He also empowered me to be in charge of my own rehab exercises, stressing the importance of getting my exercises done and progressing them along the way according to what he taught me. He is a wealth of information and a great resource for me moving forward as I progress my climbing and running.“

When It Comes To Solving Something Serious Like Pain And Stiffness From Rock Climbing Injuries…

You must choose the right provider for your health.

If you don’t, you could end up getting dangerous surgery (when it was unnecessary) or become dependent on addicting painkillers the rest of your life. Getting the “least-invasive”, most natural treatment is VITAL to stopping your pain and stiffness from your injury and keeping it from ever returning.

To do that, you have to not just treat the pain, but have a provider who is willing to figure out WHY the pain happened in the first place.

That’s when you’ll get a PERMANENT solution to your problems.
