Local chiropractor traveling with Team USA for World University Games

Dr. Amy

Local chiropractor, Dr. Amy Berglund of Active Care Chiropractic in Stevensville, is currently traveling with the U.S. Delegation to Granada, Spain as part of the U.S. medical team at the World University Games, which takes place February 1-14. Other members of this elite medical team include the head Sports Medicine physician and two physical therapists, all from Duke University. Berglund is the only chiropractic sports physician for Team USA, and will be providing medical care (adjusting, kinesiotape, rehab) to the U.S. Freeskiing, Alpine Skiing, Snowboarding, Speed Skating and Curling athletes.
The World University Games occurs every two years, and is an international sporting event with athletes from around the world. This 11-day event, for university students only, is second in size only to the Olympics. It is comprised of 2,500 athletes from 50 different countries, and includes the same sports as the Olympics. Berglund, an expert skier herself, was handpicked to be a part of the elite medical team for this event because of her experience working with Team USA and the Dew Tour.
During this past summer, Dr. Berglund worked at the Olympic Training Center in Lake Placid, NY where she treated athletes from USA Bobsled, USA Aerial Ski Team, USA Luge and USA Skeleton, including several gold medal winners and athletes that competed at Sochi, Russia last year. For the past two years, she has also been part of the medical team for the Dew Tour, which is an extreme skiing/snowboarding event for professional athletes competing in superpipe and slopestyle in Breckenridge, Colorado.
When not traveling out of country with Team USA, Dr. Berglund can be found working at her Active Care Family Chiropractic office at The Headwater Wellness Center in Stevensville. She and her staff offer a full range of treatments to keep you performing at your best.
