Dr. Colin Johnston Presents Hiking Injury Prevention and Kilimanjaro Experience

Mt Kilimanjaro Expedition

Organizing your Backpack

In 2016, Calgary chiropractor, Dr. Colin Johnston summited Mt. Kilimanjaro in Tanzania. It was an amazing experience but one that did not come without trials. After his trek, he suffered from knee pain for up to a year, especially every time he walked downhill. As a result of analyzing why and how he got injured on the mountain and, determining how to prevent his knee pain, Dr. Johnston developed a presentation to inform others about hiking injury prevention.
