ICCTA Vol.3 – Tokyo 

This time the meeting took place in Tokyo during the World Championships in Japan at the 16th of August 2019. The congress was organized and held by the members of the Climbing Physios.

38 people from 18 different countries attended.
Among them around 10 coaches and 28 therapists.

We are really happy that so many interested people joined our meeting – making it possible to share empirically proven knowledge and inform about climbing related medical issues, focused on conservative treatments.

Speakers / Climbing Physios:

Paul Houghoughi (GB) talked about the management of finger injuries in and out of World Cup Competition. Ryuichiro Tomizawa | 富澤 隆一郎 (JPN) spoke about knee injuries in Japanese elite climbers. Zack DiCristino (USA) talked about the Levator scapulae syndrome. Klaus Isele (AUT) shared his knowledge about Lumbal pain and knowledge acquisition and competition climber Kyra Condie (USA) supported us with a report about her spinal fusion operation.

Special thanks to the venue “Pump Climber’s Academy” for providing the meeting room.

These are some impressions from the ICCTA Vol. 3. We will keep this assembly in good memory! Feel free to share with #climbingphysios.
