Preventing Lower Back Pain

Most of us that live and play in Tahoe have experienced low back pain. In fact, 4 out of 5 people experience low back pain, making it the second most common reason for visiting the doctor. Follow these steps and help prevent being sidelined from your fun Tahoe activities.

Happy Trails

The goal of the Truckee Donner Horsemen is to promote horsemanship throughout the community. Hosting activities like horse shows, clinics and a juniors team gives people in the community that own or rent horses a place to gather and ride, as well as interact with other people in the community that share the same interest.
