Dr. Jay received his Master of Science degree in Sports Science and Rehabilitation. Following the completion of all of his Masters level courses, Dr. Jay completed a 180 hour internship at Virginia Institute for Sports Medicine in Virginia Beach, VA. This was an exceptional opportunity which most chiropractors will rarely experience.
He spent most days in direct contact with orthopedic surgeons at VISM observing surgeries, office visits, rehabilitation, and observing the surgeons acting as the team physicians for many local sporting events. It was a great opportunity which helped Dr. Jay to appreciate the surgical side of medicine and to understand the need for a surgical consult in appropriate situations.
Dr. Jay works with athletes to resolve injuries, but also to improve performance in healthy ones. For many outspoken professional athletes, chiropractic has played a huge part in their exceptional performance.
“…lifting weights and seeing a chiropractor on a regular basis has made me a better golfer. I’ve been going to chiropractor for as long as I can remember. It’s as important to my training as practicing my swing.” ~Tiger Woods
“I have to have an adjustment before I go into the ring. I do believe in chiropractic. I found that going to a chiropractor three times a week helps my performance. The majority of boxers go to get that edge.” ~Evander Holyfield
“Bodybuilders and fitness people have been using chiropractic very extensively in order to stay healthy and fit. I found it was better to go to a chiropractor before you get injured. We are a perfect team- the world of fitness and the world of chiropractors.” ~Arnold Schwarzenegger
“You obviously can’t compete at your fullest if you’re not in alignment. And your body can’t heal if your back is not in alignment. It was the holistic idea that I liked about Chiropractic and that is what track and field is about. Every track and field athlete that I have ever met has seen a Chiropractor at one time or another. In track and field, it is absolutely essential. Chiropractic care is one of the things I think that no one has denied or refuted.” ~Dan O’Brien
