Sports Medicine doesn’t just apply to the organized sports we see at a park, field or in a gymnasium. The great outdoors is the greatest playground in existence. Being active with hiking, backcountry running, mountain biking, climbing, and kayaking, whether in a competitive setting or not, brings its own unique challenges. Today on the Podcast, we are going to take you out of your typical comfort zone in the clinic or training room and discuss some important things to think about if you cover outdoor competitive events or if you like to get a little adventurous on your own. It’s time to talk Wilderness Medicine!
