Valerie Bachinsky was diagnosed with osteoarthritis at 27. She was an avid hiker who started having pain when walking downhill - so she decided to go up. Her rock climbing passion began 17 years ago and she hasn’t slowed down since. Valerie is also a nurse who chats with us about surprising causes of inflammation, why a good night’s sleep starts the minute you wake up, and what pain in our bodies really means. Don’t miss this inspiring conversation full of tips to help you feel your best - and maybe become a rock climber yourself.
