The seminar covered dealing with a wide range of sports related injuries including back and neck issues, headaches, concussions, knee, shoulder, hip, elbow, foot, ankle and wrist injuries. The doctors also shared some of their personal stories about working with the Cardinals players, coaches and managers over the years.
Dr. Filson was one of the doctors who originally taught Dr. Austin to adjust back at Logan College in the early 1990's. Filson has since gone on to work with the Cardinals as team chiropractor under 3 managers (Joe Torre, Tony LaRussa & Mike Matheny). Filson also did chiropractic work with the New York Yankees when Joe Torre was their Manager. Filson has 2006 and 2011 World Series Champs rings with the Cardinals.
Dr. Vidan joined the Cardinals staff more recently. He won a 2011 World Series Championship ring with the Redbirds. Both doctors passed out their rings for the other chiropractors in attendance to try on and take pictures of.
