Therapeutic Climbing for LBP

Tori Orlowski, a second year in my class presented on the therapeutic effects that climbing could have for people diagnosed with Low Back Pain (LBP). 

The theorized traction and postural muscle strengthening has very possibly real effects. I think it creates a new and exciting experience for our patients within a controlled environment. 

What makes climbing more interesting as a possible treatment, is that it can create a culture of competition. What patient doesn’t want to improve? When Tori was asked about the cost of a climbing system, she said it would be relatively cheap. The most expensive thing would be the hand holds. 

Tori did a great job introducing and selling a new possible treatment technique to me; I hope you all take the time to decide for yourself!
