Logan Students Use Chiropractic to Connect with the Community

In 2014, students through Logan’s Human Performance Center provided chiropractic services at nearly 30 St. Louis area events, from football and hockey games to marathons, bike races and track meets.

On-site support came in the form of chiropractic care and injury triage, treating athletes and also serving as a resource on preventative health care. David Parish, DC, MS, CSCS, DACBSP, ICCSP, director of the Human Performance Center, said Logan is, in fact, part of a bigger mission to promote wellness and maximize human performance in the community.

He said having a presence at events where chiropractic care can make a difference brings greater awareness to the benefits, but also provides opportunities to create more confident and proficient leaders in health care.

“We are constantly forging new relationships with unique and diverse organizations that allow students to deepen their knowledge of integrated practice,” he said. “Not only do students have the added benefit of collaborating with community leaders, but they learn to provide the best care based on individual needs, resulting in more successful patient outcomes.”

Last Fall, Logan interns were invited to provide pre and post-race chiropractic care at Missouri Baptist University’s (MBU) Freedom Run for Ronald, a 5K race that benefitted Ronald McDonald House Charities.

Early trimester Logan interns led dynamic warm ups at the starting line while the older trimester students manned a post-race triage station at the race’s finish. Guy Danoff, assistant professor of health and sport sciences at MBU, said Logan was a natural fit for the event.

“We were extremely happy with the service Logan interns provided race participants,” said Danhoff. “They were experienced, professional and encouraging, and those treated felt it was an added value to the event.”

Since the Freedom Run, Logan has been invited to MBU’s Golf Tournament benefitting Cardinals Care (the St. Louis Cardinals Community Fund) in April.

Dr. Parish said he’s grateful for the ongoing partnership with MBU. 

“It’s always a great situation when we can be out in the community providing patient care and education to those not as familiar with the benefits of chiropractic,” he said.
