Sandy Wilson at UVic: Common Musculoskeletal Injuries

Sandy Wilson on point today during her presentation at the University of Victoria on common musculoskeletal injuries.

In the foreground are three young girls sitting on yoga matts in a classroom painted various shades of green and turquoise. They are looking away from the camera and up at a blonde woman who is an adult and standing at the front of the classroom.
