PUSHING WHAT’S POSSIBLE Professional athletes—Olympians or otherwise—are always pushing themselves toward greatness. While Dr. Ben and Dr. Amber were overseas, back at home Kyle Buck, D.C. (Main, ’15)—yes, a third Buck (he’s Dr. Ben’s younger brother)— was working with elite athletes too. After


graduating from Palmer, Dr.


Kyle headed west to Seattle where he worked with athletes in rugby, swimming and track. There, he learned that another Palmer graduate—John Ball, D.C. (Main, ’03)—was providing integrated care for players in Major League Baseball and the National Football League, Olympic athletes at the 2012 Olympic Games in London, and more. “He was providing the type of care that I wanted to, so I called him up and he was willing to bring me on as an associate.”


“THE VERY SAME DEDICATION THAT OLYMPIC ATHLETES PUT INTO THEIR SPORT IS REQUIRED OF CHIROPRACTORS TO PUT INTO THEIR PRACTICE. WE’RE ALWAYS LEARNING —AND NOT JUST BECAUSE THE


PROFESSION REQUIRES IT.” —Ben Buck, D.C. (Main, ’15)


In Arizona, Dr. Kyle became a sponge—observing and learning—as Dr. Ball worked with some of the world’s greatest athletes. “I’m kind of a reserved person,” Dr. Kyle admits. “People were flying in from all over the world to be cared for. Throughout my time there, I shut up, I listened, and I learned all that I could.” He pauses for a moment. “I saw that to work with elite athletes, you need to be an elite chiropractor,” he says. “Just as athletes put everything they can into their pursuit of excellence, so too did I, working 60- and 70-hour weeks to gain the knowledge and experience that has allowed all of us to do what we’re doing today.” “I mean, that’s what it takes to work with the best,” Dr.


Ben chimes in. “The very same dedication that Olympic athletes put into their sport is required of chiropractors to put into their practice. We’re always learning—and not just because the profession requires it.” The two brothers are now getting excited to dive deeper into their experiences. “These are high-pressure situations that require active listening, an ability to think critically, and solid hands-on technique,” Dr. Kyle says. “We learned all of that at Palmer. We learned it in the early years of our careers. And frankly, we’re still learning it today.”


Palmer College has partnered with the Foundation for Chiropractic Progress to produce a special TV commercial highlighting chiropractic as a great career choice for people who want to work with athletes. The spot will air on NBC, online, and on social media during the Summer Olympics.

THE BUSINESS OF SPORT Dr. Wolford, and all three Dr. Bucks, have turned the experiences they’ve had working with elite athletes across the globe into new businesses that provide gold-medal care to athletes at all levels, as well as everyday citizens who simply seek optimal health and maximum human potential. Dr. Wolford had plans to travel to the Summer Olympics in
