Dave MacLeod On The Issue Of Injury Lay-offs

Dave MacLeod touches on a topic I unfortunately have way too much experience with:  figuring out how much of a lay-off is necessary to recover from injury

The basic rationale for lay-off is to allow the tissue some rest and a chance to recover from it’s severely compromised state. There are quite a few assumptions built into the decision to completely rest the tissue. First, that the tissue will really benefit from complete withdrawal from the sport. Unfortunately, this isn’t strictly true.

Finish your book on injuries soon, Dave, before it’s too late for me!

Be Careful What You (Sort Of) Wish For

Be Careful What You (Sort Of) Wish For

As climbers we spend most of our time concerned about avoiding injuries to our precious upper body extremities, most importantly our hands. Injuries to seemingly non-essential climbing tools like our legs are usually not at the forefront of our minds. In fact, I often argued with Mrs. Narc that I would rather have a leg injury than an arm injury. This was at the time that she was spending 6 weeks on the couch with a broken ankle so she was nonplussed to say the least. After the events of last week in Rocktown, I’m starting to come around to her point.
