Researchers at the University of Utah are investigating climbing injuries and treatments and could use our help. This benefits all of us in the long run, so if you can, help them out by taking this survey.

Thanks!

This will take about 3mins then another 3m for each injury you want to tell them about.

When I cut and pasted the link into my browser it would not let me access the survey. When I clicked on the link it worked just fine.

wish there was a reference for docotrs that they could refer to or discuss or reference when patients are climbers. I am recovering from a spinal injury (C4, C5m, C6, and C7) from a mountain biking accident. I had to have long discussionswith my doctor so he understood what I was asking for when I would be released for various things, like lead climbing (which implies lead falls) bouldering......

Chuck that is a valid point! Climbing is still poorly understood by the sports medicine community. As climbing and the medical literature continue to grow hopefully we can narrow the gap.
