Members of the West Campus Sports Council provided chiropractic sports care services to more than 800 competitors in the 2009 National Senior Games Aug. 1-15. The games are the largest multi-sport event in the world for seniors and drew more than 10,000 athletes to participate in the competition held primarily at Stanford University in Palo Alto, Calif., which was the primary location for the event.

The Sports Council worked as part of an integrative healthcare team with residents from the Stanford University Medical Center, who referred any conditions that were musculoskeletal in nature to the Palmer Sports Council tent.

“I can’t help feeling proud about our Sports Council’s recent experience working alongside other health providers at the National Senior Games,” said West Campus President William Meeker, D.C., M.P.H., West ’82. “This is truly a high level of visibility for Palmer College and for chiropractic in general, and it demonstrates the value that the organizers saw in making chiropractic care available to these amazing athletes.”

West Campus alumni who served as Sports Council clinicians during the two-week event included: Associate Clinical professor Pauline Anderson, D.C., ’90; Steve Capobianco, D.C., ’03; West Campus Professor and Sports Council Adviser Edward Feinberg, D.C., ‘83; Tony Kearns, D.C., ’07; and West Campus professor Mehdi Moossavi, M.S., D.C., ’92. In addition, Taylor Rabbetz, D.C., ’00, was instrumental in helping to facilitate the opportunity for the Sports Council to serve as the event’s chiropractic provider.
