Stafford’s Power Kix Taekwondo Partners with Dr. Joshua Cole
Partnership Brings Sports Medicine Focus to Elite Taekwondo Team
By: Cole Sports Chiropractic & Rehab
To achieve this level of success in any sport, elite athletes need to train in an environment that fosters optimal conditioning. Team Power Kix provides that to its athletes through a unique partnership with Stafford sports chiropractor Dr. Joshua Cole, DC.
A student of Taekwondo himself, Dr. Cole first met Arlene Limas years ago while taking a college level Taekwondo class. When Limas became interested in partnering with a local sports medicine professional familiar with Taekwondo, Dr. Cole fit the bill. As a Certified Chiropractic Sports Practitioner (CCSP), Dr. Cole works with team members several hours each week to help them overcome physical challenges as they strive to perform at their highest level.
Dr. Cole’s experience working with professional and elite athletes from a variety of sports plus his own Taekwondo study made him a perfect match for Team Power Kix. He regularly educates team members on ways to accelerate recovery after strenuous workouts, and helps identify and lessen risks for overuse injuries. Dr. Cole also provides concussion awareness training. “My goal is to help team members realize their maximum potential by doing what I can to make sure their hard work isn’t negated by injuries,” explains Dr. Cole.
Drawn to sports medicine by his lifelong interest in soccer, Dr. Cole continues to broaden his knowledge. He is currently pursuing certification as a Diplomate of the American Chiropractic Board of Sports Physicians (DACBSP), the highest distinction in chiropractic sports medicine. He will also soon be working with USA Taekwondo to present an online webinar about sports medicine and sports chiropractic to the organization’
In working with Team Power Kix, Dr. Cole shares that his goal is for team members to be able to “train harder and smarter by putting the sports training knowledge that I share into practice.” With that approach, Team Power Kix will continue to shine. Dr. Joshua Cole’s office is located at 385 Garrisonville Road, Suite 117 in Stafford, VA.
