Advice from Champions: 3 Essentials for Working with Pro Athletes

Advice from Champions: 3 Essentials for Working with Pro Athletes

There is undeniable irony discussing professional sports in a week where most athletes have been sidelined. However, the fact remains that professional and Olympic athletes appreciate the value of peak performance more than almost any other patient population. At the highest competitive level, tiny performance disparities can make the difference between being a champion and being unemployed.

Not surprisingly, these athletes rely upon a large cadre of strength coaches, trainers, therapists, nutritionists, psychologists, and other providers. In recent years those support networks have consistently included chiropractic care. Various studies show that approximately 9-14% of Americans utilize chiropractic care each year. (1) In contrast, more than 95% of NFL and MLB pro athletes have a chiropractor on their team. (2,3)  Likewise, a large number of Olympic athletes rely on chiropractors to stay healthy. In fact, the Team USA chief medical officer for the past four Olympics was a chiropractor. (4)

This blog will discuss how chiropractors can successfully integrate into sports and why these relationships benefit our profession, highlighted by a one-on-one interview with Dr. Hirad Najaf Bagy, team chiropractor for the Washington Redskins, Washington Nationals, and DC United Soccer.

Cervicogenic Headache: 3 Tips for Treatment, Assessment, & Management

Cervicogenic Headache: 3 Tips for Treatment, Assessment, & Management

Headaches affect almost half of the population. Up to one-fourth of all headaches are referred from the cervical spine and are classified as “cervicogenic” (1,2). Cervicogenic headache can be as debilitating as migraine headaches, and a loss of cervical spine function compounds the problem.

Chiropractors generally enjoy treating cervicogenic headache patients. Our primary tool of cervical SMT is a highly effective treatment, as demonstrated by multiple studies. (3-16) However, the successful long-term resolution of CGH patients often requires a multifaceted approach, including more than isolated SMT.

This week’s blog provides three invaluable tools and a video tutorial to help you assess and manage this problem more quickly and thoroughly.
