Treatment of finger problems in climbers with the local-osteopahic Isele-method – A pilot study

The Isele-method includes a before/after comparison based on the patient’s finger position that causes most symptoms (SCP = symptoms causing position).

The SCP is used as reference for the comparison of complaints before and after the treatment (Isele-method). Within the treatment, three different techniques (Isele-techniques) are optionally used.
