By: Dr. Morgan Brosnihan, PT, DPT

Episode Description:

Paul speaks to Dr Morgan Brosnihan, DPT. Starting in early spring, Morgan spends her summers living and working out of her big red van. Along with her golden retriever Honey, she travels the Pacific Crest Trail offering specialized support and treatment for hikers hiking the PCT, which Morgan herself completed in 2019.

By combining her passion for thru-hiking and her love for the PCT in particular with her professional and personal prerogative to help people overcome injury, she offers hikers a unique and invaluable service as they take on the incredible challenge of walking from Mexico to Canada across 2600 miles of the United States.

We talk about all things PCT preparation, Morgan’s personal experience with the trail community, and her unique and fascinating insight on injury trends along the trail.
