MEDICAL PROFILES VALENTE CHIROPRACTIC


AS A CHIROPRACTOR, Dr. Valente provides pain relief to his patients by restoring proper motion and function of the body by relieving pressure on muscles, joints and nerves. Nothing speaks louder about Dr. Valente’s expertise than hearing what his patients have to say.


“My experience is that Dr. Valente strives for excellence in his life! It shows in his practice and his personality; a very caring man indeed. I was severely injured on the job, and the relief from pain provided by Dr. Valente is unparalled,” states Matthew A.

P.Z. PEARCE, MD. CHAMPIONS Sports Medicine


WHAT IS SPORTS MEDICINE? A common misconception is that Sports Medicine is only appropriate for “elite” athletes. “We con- sider anyone who embraces the active lifestyle an ‘athlete,’ includ- ing our Athletes of Industry - the injured worker,” answers P.Z. Pearce, M.D., Director of CHAMPIONS Sports Medicine. “We are the non-operative Orthopedists,” Dr. Pearce adds.


“Most sports injuries do not require surgery, and our specialty is treating those to get you ‘back in the game.” Dr. Pearce has 30 years of experience in all aspects of athletic medicine. He is Team Physician for the Spokane Chiefs Hockey Club, and worked for 15 years with the Seattle Seahawks. He is currently National Medical Director for the Rock ‘n’ Roll Marathon Series, with 28 races across the Country. Other involvement with athletic events includes the 1984 and 1988 Olympic Cycling Trials, and the 2007 and 2010 U.S Figure Skating National Championships. In 1996, he was a Physician for the U.S. Olympic Team in Atlanta. Dr. Pearce attended the University of Hawaii before receiving


Bachelor’s degrees in Physiology and Psychology at the University of Washington. He completed his M.D. at UW, and then moved to Spokane for Family Medicine Residency. His post-graduate training includes studying at the Royal National Orthopedic Hospital in London. He has been the Training Section editor for Current Sports Medicine Reports, and is currently co-chairman of the Sports Medicine Conference, held at the Ironman Triathlon World Championships in Hawaii each year.

“I feel welcome and cared for at every visit. I cannot say enough good about the experience I have had,” says Shauna K. “After 12 weeks of physical therapy with an L&I claim, I still was not able to move my head, but to the left and right a tiny bit. After just one visit (to Valente Chiorpractic) I was able to move my head up and down along with a greater left and right motion. Now I have complete movement back and I no longer have a constant headache.”


“I spent 13 years in agony and experiencing crippling pain after a back injury that doctors couldn’t pinpoint or fix. I never considered chiropractic because 1) it was never suggested to me as a method of treatment and 2) misconceptions about it being “too alternative.” After deciding to give it a shot, my back is restored to function and my pain is gone,” says Erika D. “I am forever grateful to Dr. Valente for changing my life.”
