Have you ever asked yourself, why can’t I get a position with my local sports team? You are not alone. Many DCs have the skill set, the motivation and maybe even the circumstances but cannot seem to get their foot into the door. If you are tempted to give away your services just so you can work with a sport’s team, please stop right there. In order to avoid frustration and dead ends, you need the help of those who have been in your shoes.
I am Dr. Alan Sokoloff, and I am excited to share what I have learned over the last three decades with Doctors of Chiropractic that want to get involved and stay involved in Sports Medicine. There is no better way to let your patients and the public know what you do than through sports. Whether it is working with your favorite major sport team, or helping the local recreational teams in your town, let’s do it together. Obstacles? We will address the most common obstacles that can prevent you from getting to your desired level of involvement. When an NFL team goes through four chiropractors in four years, does that mean chiropractic doesn’t work? NO!!! The challenges are different at every level, but you can overcome them, one by one or avoid them all together. Find out how, in this course on successful integration into Sports Medicine.
Let’s get started.
What Is A Sports Chiropractor?
If you asked ten different Doctors of Chiropractic (DC), you would get ten different answers as to what a Sports Chiropractor is. Is it a DC with sports related experience ? Is it post-nominal letters (letters after your name)? Although there are customized trainings and certifications, Sports Chiropractic is a DC using their number one superpower, Chiropractic Manipulation Treatment (CMT) in the athletic training room.
According to published medical articles (PMC), Chiropractic is listed as “a vital component of sports medicine, chiropractic care can enhance athletic performance, health, and competitiveness by addressing biomechanical imbalances and optimizing neuromuscular function…… the incorporation of chiropractic care into an athlete’s healthcare regimen has been associated with enhanced biomechanics, decreased injury rates, and accelerated recovery.”
There is no better way to let people know what you do as a chiropractor then through sports. Sports chiropractic can be a vessel to educate the public and increase universal utilization of chiropractic care. You can start in your office by opening up availability to treat athletes. Another great place to start is with community youth leagues. You may prefer to reach out to local colleges before setting your sights on professional teams. There are opportunities at every level. Once a DC has evaluated the opportunities, and considered the cost (availability of time), the next step is simply setting a goal.
