Vagy

The best time to treat a climbing injury is before it happens. When it comes to climbing injuries, an ounce of prevention is truly worth a pound of cure (or rehab).

That’s why we’re always glad to host The Climbing Doctor, Dr. Jared Vagy, a nationally recognized physical therapist who helps climbers avoid injury. He also specializes in treating climbing-related injuries when they do occur, and has published articles in Deadpoint and Climbing Magazine.

We’re thrilled to welcome Dr. Vagy back, and happy to announce discounts for members interested in signing up for his clinics on preventing finger and shoulder injury.

He’ll offer three clinics in April, with two in Sunnyvale addressing finger and shoulder health, and a more general session in San Francisco.

  • Each clinic costs $55 for members* / $65 for non-members
  • Register online at www.theclimbingdoctor.com
  •  Receive an additional $10 off by registering for both PG Sunnyvale clinics**
