In this episode of Hilary Topper On Air, Hilary interviews Dr. Jon DeGorter of Jonas Chiropractic Sports Injury Care.
Dr. DeGorter has treated many professional and amateur athletes of almost every sport. His interest in sports rehabilitation and recovery has prepared him to work with all types of athletes such as triathletes, marathoners, swimmers, cyclists, ice skaters, hockey players, body builders and weekend warriors. A Long Island native, Dr. DeGorter graduated from Life University with honors in 2012. He grew up playing almost every sport.
And, he knows many of the mechanics that go into each sport which gives him the knowledge to treat a wide range of injuries.
