This is a question many people ask all the time. Even some Doctors (both DC and MD) don’t know the answer and some even will argue the point. Why? Both DCs and MDs are on sidelines of Professional Sports teams, share responsibilities at the Olympics and are working in the training rooms of Major Universities working side by side. What do they know that the average person doesn’t? The answer, each Doctor has a DIFFERENT job or responsibility, and when they work together, the Athlete heals faster.

So last week a patient of mine came in with a feeling of fatigue, heavy legs from training and soreness in his legs and lower back. He has been working hard to get ready for his summer racing season and was feeling a little discouraged. At first he thought his equipment was getting tired but after spending over a thousand dollars on up grades his scores did not change. I finally had to tell him, “did you look at your body and what you need to do different?”
