Tom Hyde, DC has had so many accomplishments and he discusses several of them in an episode of our podcast including how he helped to incorporate chiropractors into the world of professional sports.  Hyde talks about how the barriers were broken to get chiropractic services to Olympic athletes, how he became the chiropractic physician for the Miami Dolphins and he discusses the procedure he co-developed, called FAKTR-PM.

FAKTR-PM stands for “Functional And Kinetic Treatment with Rehabilitation, Provocation and Motion.” It was developed to help speed recovery from chronic musculoskeletal pain syndromes and has also been shown to work extremely well on acute musculoskeletal/fascial conditions.

In 1987, Tom Hyde became the first chiropractor to be accepted to the volunteer program for chiropractors at the United States Olympic Training Center, in Colorado Springs, Colorado, and was subsequently selected to serve as the official chiropractor for the 1987 Pan American Games. In 2001, Hyde was inducted to the Hall of Fame of the Sports Council of the American Chiropractic Association.  In 2002, he was named “Sports Chiropractor of the Year” by the Florida Chiropractic Association Sports Injury Council.  He was named “Person of the Year” by Dynamic Chiropractic in 2009.

He is an avid mountain climber and will soon be going to Kilimanjaro for the 3rd time.  He invited podcast listeners to join him on the climb.

His website www.faktr-pm.com will be changed in January 2011 to www.faktr.com

    It is no coincidence that the finest athletes in the world choose chiropractic. They know something that many others still don’t… chiropractic works!

    I am not sure of the accuracy of this statement. Many top athletes work with outstanding PTs & S/C coaches as well. Some even find their “go to” injury prevention/recovery specialist is an NMT specialist. There is clearly a role for the DC, but if we sit on our hands we will lose ground.
