Shoulder Injuries in Rock ClimbingTreatment & Initial Rehab

At an arm’s length away from the wall, place your hand on the wall at the level of your eyes with your weight on it. Engage the lower core of your low back and pull in your low abs below your belly button.

Then pull the arm and the ball aspect of the shoulder joint into its socket while having your weight on the wall with your one hand. Avoid pulling down with your Lat muscle. Keep this engaged for 10 seconds x 10 reps 3 sets each side.

This exercise starts to work the shoulder muscles to help with more optimal stabilization and movement reactivation patterns after an injury. If you have any pain or problems performing this exercise please stop and consult with your local Physiotherapist before continuing.
