We are pleased to announce that the Lewisville Yellow Jackets have named Dr. Mark Charrette the Official Team Dr. Dr. Charrette, a chiropractor, is a certified member of The Structural Management® Program, an advanced sports biomechanics program developed by Dr. Tim Maggs. Dr. Charrette will provide Structural Fingerprint® Exams to all players before training camp and games begin and design custom proactive treatment programs for each player.
This exam will consist of a physical exam, a digital laser foot scan and standing biomechanical x-rays of the neck and low back. MRI’s will be ordered when indicated. Once this information is analyzed, Dr. Charrette will determine if custom orthotics are needed, as well as develop a custom program consisting of chiropractic adjustments, laser therapy and spinal decompression when indicated. Each player will also be properly trained in the use of The Stick and the Maggs Muscle Management™ Program.
Dr. Charrette’s goals are very clear—“We want to do a better job at preventing, predicting, diagnosing and treating sports injuries than the current reactive medical model system that takes care of most athletes in this country today”.
