Dr. Kris at the Sports Chiropractic Symposium Australia: Tweens, Teens and Young Adult Female Athletes

Here’s more from our awesome Dr. Kristina Petrocco-Napuli (“Dr. Kris”) who’s traveling through Australia lecturing on Chiropractic’s important role in women’s wellness. We’re honored to have such a wonderful doctor and educator on our team!

One word to describe this group….AMAZING! It was so wonderful to meet a group of Chiropractors on the same mission of patient centered care and leading the way in the profession. At this conference I met a variety of practitioners from around Australia as well as students from Macquarie University, Murdoch University and New Zealand College of Chiropractic.

The topic for my presentation at the conference was: The Female Athlete: Tweens, Teens and Young Adults. During the presentation one of the topics of interest was assisting the female athlete in understanding how to optimize training in correlation with her menstrual cycle and the impact it can have. In addition, the correlation of the biomechanics of the pelvis and conditions which effect the female patient.

The conference concluded very nicely with a gender balanced discussion panel of many untitled2speakers from the weekend related to sports Chiropractic practice….It was an incredible honor to be included.

A huge thank you to the CCA and Sports Chiropractic of Australia for including me as speaker!

As the conference ended it was now time for a walk to see some of the rest of Sydney….off to the Opera it was!

Stay tuned….. for tomorrow is a board lecture in Sydney!
