Athletic TIPS is a national, not-for-profit organization that drives expanded awareness and education around the role of multi-disciplinary care in the recognition, management, and prevention of sports-related injuries. This year, the program has achieved the following:

  • Published its Athletic TIPS Playbook™
  • Trained over 200 doctors of chiropractic to conduct educational community workshops
  • Conducted community workshops on sports-related concerns to nearly 1,000 coaches nationwide
  • Developed an interactive online platform capable of complex functionality

“We are eager to launch Athletic TIPS to the public, as it addresses the critical need to educate youth athletes, their parents/guardians, and their coaches about sports-related injuries,” Greenawalt said. “At this moment in time, the team is working diligently to reinforce core operations and carry out final preparation activities to ensure a seamless and successful roll out. In the interim, I encourage the entire profession to get involved, get ready, and get excited!”
