Specializing in climber rehabilitation


Grassroots is proud to specialize in physical therapy for climbers, and was the first clinic in SLC to offer climber specific rehabilitation.

We are long-time climbers ourselves so we understand the unique physical demands of the sport and how to treat and prevent common climbing related injuries. We have been honing our treatment skills for years, helping hundreds of climbers including professional athletes like Brittany Griffith, Babsi Zangerl and Sam Elias to get back in the game. It is through this experience that we have developed the most relevant and effective climber specific rehab treatment to offer our climbing community.

Grassroots is the premier resource center for climbing specific physical therapy.
