When Cam Newton and our Carolina Panthers step onto the field at Levi’s Stadium this Sunday, they will come to the game with the advantage of Carolina Panthers chiropractor Dr Joshua Kollmann and chiropractor Dr Brad Wiest. Of course, in 2016 all 32 NFL teams now include the professional services of a doctor of chiropractic as a part of their integrated healthcare team approach.
Carolina Panthers Chiropractor Describes Approach
Drs. Kollmann and Wiest are marking their 5th year with the Carolina Panthers, and describe the integrative role of chiropractic care: “We are in the stadium training room twice a week – and more often during the playoffs – addressing specific sports injuries or providing preventive, supportive care that the athletes want in order to achieve and maintain peak performance. Every player is individually assessed and the treatment plan is communicated and discussed with the training staff.
Since the physical nature of the sport really impacts body structure, players look forward to their pre- and post game spinal and extremity checkups and adjustments as well as other advanced approaches.”
Kyle Prusso, DC, is the team chiropractor for the Oakland Raiders since 2005 and president of the Pro Football Chiropractic Society: an organization of chiropractors who provide the highest quality chiropractic health care to the elite athletes of professional Football. He states “It’s great to see chiropractic care integrated in all facets of health care, especially in professional and amateur sports. One of the reasons is that athletes are asking for us, with increased player requests driving utilization of chiropractic across all sports. Athletes are very in tune with their bodies and recognize that chiropractic care can boost optimal performance levels.”
All team doctors are passionate about their roles as chiropractors to an NFL Super Bowl contender, and as Carolina Panthers chiropractor Dr. Kollmann says, “I am humbled by this position and want the world to know that this is a great time to be a chiropractor. It means the world to me to ignite and advance our profession – especially for those who are pursuing a chiropractic education as well as veteran professionals. We are igniting the profession and honor those DCs who pioneered the opportunities that have helped us to become a part of the NFL teams.”
Drs. Kollmann and Wiest, we here at Eastside Chiropractic in Greenville, SC thank you for serving our Carolina Panthers, and helping them to “Keep Pounding” in Super Bowl 50!
