Members of Sports Council, a group that is active on all three campuses, learn about spinal and extremity evaluation and participate in on-field care for various community athletic events. Because active people want to maximize performance while minimizing injury, many are looking for the unique skill set of the sports chiropractor to help them achieve this goal.

Athletic event organizers in the Palmer campus communities have sought the services of Sports Council members to help minimize athlete injuries through pre- and post-event treatment, including injury evaluation, chiropractic adjustments, stretching, soft-tissue therapy and taping. Sports Council members are trained in both on- and off-field settings, which includes course material focusing on sport-specific injury evaluation and treatment protocols. Students also receive training in common athletic emergency situations. 

Following are some of the events in the Quad-City community during which Davenport Campus Sports Council members provide care:

  • Quad Cities Distance Classic
  • Quad Cities Triathlon
  • Bix at 6 (four weekly training runs leading up to Bix 7 Road Race)
  • Quad-City Times Bix 7 Road Race
