Logan and the Mizzou Tigers Team Up for Athletic Performance

Dr. Jose Ramirez and Rex Sharp

This article is from the Fall 2014 edition of The Tower. Click here to read the full issue.

In a stadium approximately 100 miles west of Logan University’s campus, a unique partnership is taking shape. The point of convergence is Memorial Stadium, home of the Missouri Tigers Football Team, and it’s where hundreds of Division I athletes are receiving chiropractic treatment under the care of Logan staff and students.

A relationship established between the two institutions eight years ago has resulted in Logan having a physical presence on the Mizzou campus. Jose Ramirez, DC, MS, CCSP is leading the effort as director of Logan’s Human Performance Center at Mizzou. 

“The number one goal of the Mizzou Athletic Health Care Team is to provide unparalleled, state-of-the-art health care for all of our student athletes,” states Rex Sharp, associate athletic director at the University of Missouri. “The care provided by Logan is consistent with the expectations of our Mizzou team physicians and other allied health professionals involved in our athletic health care program.”  Dr. Ramirez’s goal is to enhance performance, prevent injuries or accelerate the healing of injuries of all athletes at Mizzou.

For Logan interns, working in an integrated health care environment among certified athletic trainers and orthopedic surgeons provides a chance to deepen their clinical experience. Dr. Ramirez said Logan interns couldn’t be getting a better opportunity. “They are expanding their knowledge in diagnosis and getting to work with some of the best healthcare professionals in the industry, You can’t put a value on that experience.” While some collegiate sports teams have relationships with DCs in private practice, it’s rare to see a team enlist another college or university and its students. 

David Parish, DC, MS, CSCS, DACBSP, director of Logan’s sports rehabilitation center, said Logan’s partnership with Mizzou is unique The Mizzou staff agrees. “The vision and leadership provided by Logan has allowed Mizzou Athletic Health Care to utilize the resources of Logan University in a unique partnership,” Sharp said.
