Tokyo in 2020 to serve as a chiropractor for USA Beach


culmination of a life’s dream. However, the world had other plans for her; she became pregnant with her first child who would be due around the time of the Games (having a baby at the Olympics might have made the news, but wasn’t exactly in the best interest of anyone). “To get the call—to be invited to be part of the team in Tokyo meant the world to me,” she says. “I had to say ‘no.’” Being a mom, she adds, is also a dream come true. As founder of EHP Performance in

Moorhead, Minnesota, Dr. Wolford focuses on performance and health rather than pain and illness. In addition to

chiropractic, the practice offers

acupuncture, rehabilitation, and more. Just next door, she started a CrossFit gym that offers athletic training programs for kids and teens, and yoga classes for adults. “Not every person I work with today may be an elite athlete, but I do hope that they desire to live their life in the best possible way.” Out west, the Bucks converged in Colorado in March 2020 to open New Leaf Chiropractic, “timed perfectly to coincide with the COVID-19 pandemic,” Dr. Ben says sarcastically. The trio of Palmer College graduates brings their unique experiences from across the globe together to give patients the

tools their bodies need. They’ve

quickly developed a reputation of their own for the hands-on care they offer to high school, collegiate, and professional athletes who call Colorado home. “Through our travels and experiences around the country and world, we’ve learned to adapt quickly to circumstance and environment. In our first year of business, that’s perhaps been truer than ever before,” Dr. Kyle says. “Palmer prepared us to do what it

takes to do what we love,” Dr. Ben adds. “Whether in China, in Arizona, or now in our new clinic—that’s what we’ll always do to be the best.”


AT PALMER FLORIDA, students and clinical faculty are also providing gold-medal care to South Florida athletes competing in the Special Olympics. Joanne Eash, D.C. (Florida, ’07), faculty clinician, says this is a form of community service that’s both rewarding and educational. “We offer Special Olympics athletes a physical at no cost,” Dr. Eash says. “Many times, the athletes we see are participating in Special Olympics at the local level for the first time. We get to be part of the excitement and anticipation they feel. It’s a big deal to them, and therefore it’s a big deal to us.”

Students, she adds, get the opportunity to experience how important it is to be a chiropractor who also gives back to the community, in whatever way they choose. “We’re preparing students to be chiropractors who also contribute to the greater good,” she says. “Our commitment to Special Olympics here in Port Orange is just one example I hope they take with them as they build their careers and consider ways to support their communities.”
