      We have upgraded to new forum software as of late last year, and it makes everything here so much better!  It is now much easier to do pretty much anything, including write Trip Reports, sell gear, schedule climbing related events, and more. There is a new reputation system that allows for positive contributors to be recognized,  it is possible to tag content with identifiers, drag and drop in images, and it is much easier to embed multimedia content from Youtube, Vimeo, and more.  In all, the site is much more user friendly, bug free, and feature rich!   Whether you're a new user or a grizzled cascadeclimbers.com veteran, we think you'll love the new forums. Enjoy!

Hand Therapist for climber in PDX

Recommended Posts

A good friend (well ... ok, its my wife), damaged some finger tendons - not sure yet how bad it is. Anyone have recs based on personal experience for a good hand therapist in PDX who is used to working with climbers? Thx.

Hi Chris;


I would first consult with Dr. Ira Weintraub, an excellent orthopedist who is also a climber. While I'm not sure if he's specifically a hand therapist himself, he's associated with an crackerjack physical therapist. He can give a precise diagnosis on any joint condition, and could certainly provide a referral to a first rate hand specialist. He'd be my first choice of where to start. His office in NW Portland is at 1515NW 18th, 3rd Floor, phone 503-224-8399. Best of luck, guys.
