About This Episode:
Dr. Pond’s life took a turn toward sports medicine when he suffered a tear in his right shoulder while pursuing a passion in competitive rugby. The options posed to him were a) get the shoulder surgically repaired or b) stop tackling people and having fun– so he chose c) develop a demanding and experimental shoulder stabilization routine and continue to play pain-free.

After his successful experiment, he was inspired to pursue a degree that would give him the opportunity to share that same level of success with others. Now as a sports chiropractor, Dr. Pond is a resource to coaches and athletes who seek an alternative to injury care beyond rest, ibuprofen or surgery.

As a Certified Chiropractic Sports Physician, he serves as the team physician of Seattle’s Pro Rugby Club, the Seattle Seawolves and The Ivan Salaverry MMA Team. Dr. Pond does his best to practice what he preaches, he’s currently a blue belt competing in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu and he has competed for ten years in Kettlebell Sport, CrossFit and The Broken Skull Challenge.
