From Olympics to Practice

Posted by in Research

CMCC was proud to have hosted Canadian Olympians and practicing chiropractors Dr. Lindsay Alcock, Dr. Josh Binstock and Dr. Melissa Tancredi on September 22 for a one-hour webinar and panel discussion. With diverse careers representing Team Canada on the world stage, the panel offered a tremendous opportunity to gain unique insight into the mindset of high-performance athletes and their inspiration for becoming chiropractors. To conclude the webinar, attendees participated in a live Question and Answer session, moderated by Director of Alumni Relations David Coleman and Special Events Coordinator Kristin Earle.

The panelists spoke in detail about how chiropractic had shaped their athletic careers, and how they have used their varied athletic experiences to grow their practices and drive improved patient outcomes. Each practitioner also stressed that the habits and routines they used as Olympic athletes to achieve world-class results, re-purposed for a clinical setting, continue to be important to their success as health-care professionals. The fast-paced discussion touched on a range of other topics, including clinical techniques, the importance of self-care to the practitioner, and how our panelists keep up with the latest research.
