Specialist Climbing Physiotherapy

Before training as a Physiotherapist, Simon Carley-Smith worked as an SPA climbing instructor and ran an outdoor adventure company in Polzeath, North Cornwall. Climbing and ski mountaineering are some of his greatest passions and it was only natural that his Physiotherapy would end up specialising in these sports.

what to expect

Simon has a particular interest in finger, elbow and shoulder injuries, but is just as comfortable treating other regions, from low back pain to knee injuries. He has a very active interest in understanding the science and practical application of the most recent strength and conditioning research and rehabilitation techniques for both improving performance and preventing or recovering from injury, and he regularly liaises with coaches and other specialist climbing physiotherapists to ensure you get cutting edge treatment.

Being based out of Redpoint Bristol Climbing Centre means RISE Physiotherapy is perfectly placed to meet the rehabilitation and therapy needs of Bristol’s rock climbing and adventure sports community. With on-site access to a huge range of rehabilitation equipment, fingerboards, gymnastic rings and the combination of bouldering and lead climbing walls we have a unique set-up that allows full assessment of your injury and where appropriate your climbing technique.

TESTIMONIALS

“I started seeing Simon due to a finger injury a few years ago. He was very quick to diagnose what wrong and gave me a great rehab plan! Since then I have seen him for pretty much any niggle I have- finger, knee, you name it! It’s great because Simon understands how important climbing and moving is to me- being in the GB Climbing Team being able to train is pretty important! So all his rehab and recovery still involved some form of training so I could get back to full strength ASAP! Could not recommend highly enough!

– Rhoslyn Frugtniet

“His unlimited psych for sport, exercise and rehab always spurred me on to complete all my exercises which was a key part of my recovery. All injured climbers should just book in with him now as you’ll be climbing hard again sooner if you do!

– Ponder Stibbons
