With six speakers on the program and many alumni and students in attendance, Palmer College showed its leadership in the field of sports chiropractic in a significant manner at the third-annual California Chiropractic Association (CCA) Sports & Rehab Symposium, Aug. 19-21, at Disney’s Grand California Hotel and Spa in Anaheim, Calif.

Palmer alumni speakers included: Nick Athens, D.C., Davenport ’82; Steven Capobianco, D.C., DACRB, CCSP®, West ’03; Tracy Cole, D.C., West ’89; Jeffrey Langmaid, D.C., Davenport ’06; and David Paris, D.C., West, ’01; who serves as CCA vice president.

Kyle Prusso, D.C., CCSP®, director of Clinics at the West campus, was another Palmer associated speaker at the CCA Sports & Rehab Symposium.

Dr. Prusso is the chiropractic consultant for the Oakland Raiders, and has served three terms as president of the Professional Football Chiropractic Society.

“Through its Sports Council program, Palmer West has established a reputation for graduating some of the best sports doctors in the profession,” says Dr. Capobianco, who is medical director for RockTape and the owner of Project Move, a sports-specific rehabilitation and performance institute in Colorado.

“I’m proud to be a Palmer West graduate and look back on my Palmer experience with great satisfaction. Palmer West is the place for any prospective student who has an interest in sports chiropractic.”
