Olympic Track and Field Trial Competition

Track and field encompasses a wide range of athletic events that test an individual’s speed, strength, endurance, and agility. From sprints to long-distance races, jumping events to throwing disciplines, there’s something for everyone in this exhilarating sport. Athletes compete in events such as the 100-meter dash, high jump, shot put, javelin throw, and many more.

I worked alongside other chiropractors, massage therapists, and medical doctors to provide care for the athletes.
