About the Book:
Master outdoorsman Steve Priest shares twenty plus years of personal encounters with injuries, healing, and prevention that come with an active physical life.
Injuries are something every outdoor enthusiast dreads. No one wants to think about them, but injuries are a fact of life. It is not a question of “if” but “when”. However the good news is that injuries can be prevented and overcome.
Outdoor activities such as running, cycling, hiking, skiing, triathlons, biathlons, XC skiing, and paddling, increase the possibility for a sports injury. Read to learn what you can do — as Steve has — to minimize the frequency for injury, and how to handle the injuries once they occur.
“Avoiding Injuries provides a unique perspective of outdoor injuries. Outdoor Steve’s point of view of injuries, remedies and prevention, gives a flavor for the health concerns that come up in an active physical life.”
