Trio of Twin Cities doctors traveling to Poland to assist more than 4,500 elite athletes

ST. PAUL, Minn. (June 22, 2017) – Three Minnesota chiropractors will be headed to Eastern Europe next month, serving on the sports chiropractic team for the World Games, which will be held July 20-30 in Wroclaw, Poland.

Doctors Craig Couillard, Scott Mooring and Timothy Stark – all prominent members of the Minnesota Chiropractic Association (MCA) – have all been selected to the exclusive sports medicine team for the World Games, an Olympic-style sporting event featuring 4,500 athletes representing more than 100 countries and competing in 30 different sports.

Held every four years since they began in 1981, the World Games are an international competition designed to showcase non-Olympic sports such as roller hockey, kickboxing, wakeboarding, bowling, sumo wrestling, lacrosse, racquetball and trampoline gymnastics.

Federation Internationale de Chiropratique du Sport (FICS) has selected 30 chiropractors from across the world for this special event. Also known as the International Federation of Sports Chiropractic, FICS is comprised of national chiropractic sports councils worldwide and individual members, and has affiliations with international organizations within the chiropractic profession and the world of sports.

“This is a tremendous honor, to travel across the ocean for this outstanding event, and to work with some of the finest athletes in the world, representing the chiropractic profession in Minnesota,” said Dr. Couillard.

Dr. Mooring added, “It is exciting that the three of us from Minnesota are among a very select group of chiropractors heading to Poland to provide on-site care for these elite men and women before and after their competitions.”

As a veteran of international competitions, Dr. Stark said that “Being a part of the World Games is an important step in the advancement of sports chiropractic across the globe.”

Dr. Couillard is the MCA president and founder of Lake Marion Chiropractic in Lakeville, Minn. He is also the official chiropractor for the St. Paul Saints and Hamline University Athletic Department.

Dr. Mooring is the MCA treasurer and the owner of Back in Balance Chiropractic in West St. Paul, Minn.  Dr. Mooring is also a team chiropractor in the University of Minnesota Athletic Medicine Department working with Gopher wrestling, hockey, football, and track and field.

Dr. Stark is the Director of the Human Performance Center for Northwestern Health Sciences University in Bloomington, Minn. He has also joined FICS for many international competitions including the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio.
