Evaluation and Treatment of Preseason Extremity Injuries

Dr. Dan McClure combines a life-long love of athletics with his chosen profession for a natural specialization in chiropractic sports medicine. He is a former high school and college athlete who first became interested in chiropractic when it offered him great relief for a low back injury sustained during college football.

Following his graduation from Palmer College of Chiropractic he began volunteering as a team physician for local high school football, volleyball, basketball, wrestling, track, and baseball. The valuable experience gained in working with these athletes, plus completion of his C.C.S.P. degree, led to his selection for the interdisciplinary sports medicine team at the US Olympic Training Center in 1989. His USOC association continued through the 1990 Olympic Sports Festival and the 1991 Pan American Games.

Due to his successful treatment of divers’ wrist injuries at those USOC events, he was invited to join the Sports Medicine staff of US Diving in 1991. Since then, he has worked with elite divers at training camps, Indoor and Outdoor National Championships, Olympic Trials, and the 1992 Summer Olympics in Barcelona, Spain.
Dr. McClure is a nationally and internationally renowned expert and lecturer on extremity injuries and manipulation. His extremity experience ranges over 25 years. Dr. McClure’s state of the art techniques are constantly being refined, so you will learn time proven techniques as well as cutting edge techniques in the process of development. This level of commitment and experience, along with his passion for excellence in applying chiropractic extremity techniques is what makes him the best in his field.
