Favorite Quote: "It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds; who knows great enthusiasms, the great devotions; who spends himself in a worthy cause; who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat." - Theodore Roosevelt
Welcome to Alpha Sports Performance Medicine. I'm Dr.Ben, the proud founder of this unique multidisciplinary team. As a passionate sports chiropractor with extensive experience working with Olympic level athletes, I strive to bring top-tier, individualized care to every athlete who walks through our doors.
My journey in sports medicine began with my own experiences as an athlete. Inspired by the power of a healthy body and mind in performance, I dedicated my career to helping athletes reach their peak potential. This led me to the creation of Alpha Sports Performance Medicine, a holistic sports medicine clinic focused on creating personalized recovery and performance plans.
At Alpha Sports, we take pride in offering an unparalleled blend of expertise from sports chiropractors, physical therapists, massage therapists, dietitians, and sports psychologists. I strongly believe in this multidisciplinary approach - it allows us to address all aspects of an athlete's well-being, providing a comprehensive, tailor-made care plan for each individual.
In addition to providing the highest level of care, one of our top priorities is cultivating an environment that resonates with the athletic mentality. The vibrant, energetic, and motivating culture at Alpha Sports is one that propels both our team and our patients to strive for excellence.
Beyond the clinic, I've been honored to represent Team USATF and work multiple rotations with the USOPC and international events for different federations. These experiences have only reinforced my commitment to setting a new standard in sports performance medicine.
Today, Alpha Sports Performance Medicine is poised for expansion, ready to bring our top-tier, athlete-focused care to athletes across the nation. As we grow, our commitment to exceptional, personalized care and fostering an inspiring athletic culture will remain the cornerstone of our approach.
Whether you're a professional athlete or a fitness enthusiast, I welcome you to Alpha Sports Performance Medicine. Here's to reaching new heights in your athletic journey!
