We are pleased to welcome Wilkinson Chiropractic and Sports Rehabilitation Center to the Speedburner Team. Dr. Robert Wilkinson and Clinic Director Andy Shore have been friends of mine for many years. Dr. Wilkinson has been my personal chiropractor for 15 years and Andy Shore rehabilitated both of my knees post surgery. I have been sending my athletes to them for years and now as we move forward to another level, we have made the relationship with Speedburners an official one.
"Dr. Wilkinson and Andy Shore have been my friends for many years. There is nobody better at getting our athletes healthy than the staff at Wilkinson Chiropractic and Sports Rehab. These two have kept me healthy throughout the years, and I know I wouldn't be the coach/athlete I am today without their support and guidance. I feel very fortunate to have such great medical people for not only myself, but for all of my athletes to turn to. As we move forward in our quest to build the champion speed athletes, I am happy to announce that the very best in health care is available to the Speedburner family."

They also offer a wide range of modalities to combat pain, swelling, muscle spasm, and lack of range of motion. They recommend that athletes be treated with a maintenance program to enhance their athletic performance. Each athlete is treated as an individual, unique to his or her sport, and the program is personalized in that manner. Thus, each program may vary from athlete to athlete.

Robert Wilkinson - Doctor of Chiropractic
Dr. Wilkinson's expertise reaches way beyond the chiropractic arm. He is a former college baseball athlete and understands the needs of the elite athlete. While majoring in sports medicine, Dr. Wilkinson worked with the pro football Los Angeles Rams and renowned athletic trainer Dr. Gary Tuthill, and the fine orthopedic doctors of Kerlan Jobe. Dr. Tuthill was the one responsible for guiding and proctoring Dr. Wilkinson into the world of sports rehabilitation and chiropractic care. Being a former collegiate athlete, Dr. Wilkinson knew the level of expertise and dedication required to get players back on the field and competing again. As an athlete, time away from the game is time wasted. He has had many years of experience working both as an athletic trainer for local high schools and rehabilitation centers honing his skills. After receiving his Doctorate of Chiropractic, Dr. Wilkinson worked for a large medical facility and currently has his own sports rehabilitation center where he treats all forms of injuries. He is the team physician for two of the local high schools and is responsible for many of their athletes. Dr. Wilkinson makes himself and his staff readily available for any and all injuries.
Andy Shore - Clinic Director
Andy spent 15 years working as a trainer for the professional football Los Angeles Rams. Experience working with athletes at the professional level is what makes Andy so valuable. Athletes are unlike your average person in that they play at a much higher and intense level, which means they often injure at a different level as well. Treating the athlete is a lot different than treating hte common man. Andy's expertise in treating the athlete is unmatched.
