Fun Workshops in Colorado in July

In July, I will teach three workshops at the annual conference of the Wilderness Medical Society in Snowmass, Colorado. The conference is open to all who want to learn.

  1. Prevent and Fix Injuries
    Fast moving, jam packed, hands-on workshop to prevent and rehab sprains, bad arches, knee, disc, shoulder, upper back, lower back, SI joint, and mystery back pain.
    Same class offered twice (one session each): Sunday July 27, 2008, 3-5pm or Tuesday July 29 3-5pm.

  2. Stretching Smarter Stretching Healthier: Why Well Known Stretches Aren’t Stopping Injury and What to Do Instead.
    Come relieve conference aches on the spot, and take home effective techniques.
    Same class offered twice: Sunday July 27 2008 1-3pm, and Tues July 29th 1-3pm.

  3. Functional Core Training for the Outback
    No crunches or forward bending that pressures discs. Learn fun, quick techniques to straighten posture, fix lower back pain from hiking and backpacks, and functionally strengthen, from simple moves to the toughest you can get. Bring a backpack (optional backpack training).
    Same class offered twice: Saturday July 26 2008 10am-12pm, and Monday July 28 10am-12pm.

You don't need to attend the whole conference to take the workshops, although the conference and the people who run the WMS and come to the meetings are fun and interesting.
