Functional Sports Medicine™️ is the practice of caring for athletes using evidence based eastern and western sciences and philosophies. At its core, Functional Sports Medicine™️ addresses an athletes unmet need to to minimize chronic inflammation. We do this through a group up approach addressing the mitochondria efficiency and density, immune function, detoxification capacity, hormonal Imbalance, neuroskeletal dysfunction, genetics, epigenetics and an athletes environment. 

By studying the parts, we understand the whole. By reducing chronic inflammation, an athlete is better able to absorb training and recovery, resulting in physical, emotional and psychological resilience. Resilience is the platform upon which athletic performance and function is built and sustained.  

Origins of Functional Sports Medicine

I founded Functional Sports Medicine™️ by extracting principles from allopathic medicine, functional medicine, acupuncture, aryuveda, strength and conditioning, genetics and nutrition which were pertinent to maximizing vitality, minimizing illness and injuries allowing for consistent high performance. 

The Functional Sports Medicine™️ practice has withstood the acid test of the Olympic and professional sporting circuits. It has produced seven world number ones, numerous major winners, Olympic gold medals and multiple team titles. The results are predictable and reproducible.
