Julien started climbing 12 years ago at Horizon Roc and is well placed to understand how unique and little-known climbing injuries are. He seeks to deepen knowledge of this sport and that is why he is exclusively dedicated to it.
It is therefore 100% of his clientele, the subject of his conferences and the training he offers in physiotherapy.
His interests include orthopedic physiotherapy, hand injuries, correction of movement patterns and their integration into climbing movements. His goal for 2020 is to develop prevention clinics for competition teams and continue to deepen his knowledge of finger and hand injuries.
Passionate about the outdoors and adventure, you can meet him in gyms in the Montreal region and outside climbing walls around the world.
