Local chiropractor Dr. Dave Gabay will treat Olympic athletes when they spend time at the U.S. Olympic Training Center in Lake Placid at the end of October.
continued The pressure at the U.S. Olympic Training Center is eased a bit because the doctors work collectively to find solutions.
“That’s why we use a team approach. We all sit down and talk,” said Gabay. “We’re seeing that change in practice where everybody’s a part of the bigger team in working with patients and their best interests. We try to leave egos at the door.”
He’ll have to close his practice for his two weeks of Olympic work but it’s worth it, said Gabay.
“I’m looking forward to it. It’s real tough losing your practice for two weeks because there’s no income and an interruption in patient care,” said Gabay. “I try not to take any new patients for two weeks before.”
The 2014 Winter Olympics will be held in Sochi, Russia.
