Carla Welcomes Dr. Jesse Easley of Schupp Chiropractic

From episode: The Science of Staying Injury-Free: Sports Medicine Insights with Dr. Easley

Today we're going to talk to Dr. Jesse Easley. Jesse is one of the practitioners at Shupp Chiropractic and Sports Injuries. So let's listen up and see why it's so important for you to visit there. Welcome to the show, Jesse. Hey, thanks, Carla. Glad to be here. It's so nice to have you here. I wanted to get some of your expertise, opinion on chiropractic and ART and all that stuff. I've been coming to the complex since 2014, and I'm pretty sure they opened in 2012. So yeah, I've been a patient for a long, long time. Yeah. Oh, yeah. Longer than I've been there. Yeah. Not by much, though. I remember when you started. But if it wasn't for you guys there, I wouldn't be able to continue to run. So I wanted to really explain to my listeners the importance, obviously, we should be doing foam rolling, but sometimes we need a little bit deeper step. And so that's why I come to you guys. And I know that your office sees a lot of the badgers. Is that correct? We see the runners, track and field, cross country. OK. And then you do see some Olympians as well, don't you? Some of the people that went to. We do. A lot of the collegiate athletes continued on to run professionally. And so there have been quite a few in the last five, six years who have gone on to run for Olympic teams, both with the United States and then quite a few Australians and a couple other Canadian heptathletes. And yeah, but yeah, a couple. It keeps things interesting. know So I I've done, I think, everything you guys offer, the chiropractic, the dry needling, the ART, the Graston, the laser therapy, kinesiotaping, and cupping. Is that everything? Mostly. We do a little bit of rehab. I think that is everything that we currently offer. In the future, we'll be adding a few things, but yeah, you've gone through a lot. I don't know if it's fortunately or unfortunately got to experience everything that we do. Yeah, I know. I'm kind of probably your biggest minor, I'm sure, when you're working on me. Close, not quite. So of these, is there one in particular that you specialize more in or that you gravitate more when you're working with a runner? Well, a couple ways to answer that. Within our clinic itself, all three of us do most of the same thing. And I would say the biggest difference between provider is our backgrounds. And so Andy ran collegiately and has the deepest background in endurance running. Phil plays rugby and does a lot of mixed martial arts, and I have done a variety. I ran track and cross country, I rock climb, we're into motor sports, all sorts of different things. And between then our office and other offices in the Dane County area, there's quite a lot of difference. Yeah, that for sure, I know. Why do you feel that it's important for an athlete to maybe get off the foam roller if that's not working and come to your office? Yeah, so a foam roller can be a useful tool. I would say that if you've been foam rolling an injury for any lengthy period of time and it hasn't seemed to change anything. If you had a nagging hip or calf or whatever it may be and you've been foam rolling for three, four weeks and nothing's changing, it probably won't change. And so you need some type of more targeted or different intervention or potentially just diagnosis. It might not be a connective tissue injury that you're dealing with. It could be a bone injury, it could be a nerve, there's a variety of things.
