How to treat common injuries in the backcountry.

Are you an avid hiker or backpacker?  Do you know what the common injuries are and how to treat them? Some of the most common injuries in the backcountry include ankle sprains, blisters and wounds.  Most of the time, these injuries can be prevented but other times you need to treat them.

I’ll be teaching a workshop at Adventure 16, Solana Beach on October 10, 2017.  In this information-packed workshop, you’ll learn how to prevent these common injuries, the signs and symptoms and backcountry treatment.  In addition, you’ll learn about essential items for your first aid kit.  Come ready to participate and practice some of these techniques with other people in the audience.

If you cannot attend the workshop, consider taking my Wilderness First Aid class.  For dates and registration visit
