June 19, 2013 — With more than 7,000 Jewish athletes, 60 plus countries, and 35 participating sports, the Maccabiah Games is the world’s third largest international sporting competition. And two prominent doctors of chiropractic will accompany the team to support and treat participants at this elite athletic competition.
Paul J. Weber, DC, MPH, and Jeffrey Lewin, DC, CCSP, are attending the games at the request of Richard Gakner, DC, ICSSD, MSC, the chiropractic coordinator for the Maccabiah Games and part of an international team of chiropractors who have launched an effort to open the Israel Chiropractic College.
In addition to treating athletes, Weber and Lewin will be there to support and promote the chiropractic college. Weber is an award-winning teacher and former professor at Cleveland College of Chiropractic and the Los Angeles College of Chiropractic. He is the creator of the Dynamic Movement Workshop, a hands-on chiropractic diagnostic and technique course that focuses on the key area of dysfunction unique to each patient.
“I am looking forward to interacting with athletes prior to competition, in order to improve the mobility and function throughout their musculoskeletal system, for improved performance in their individual event,” said Weber.
Lewin is a New York Chiropractic College graduate, a certified chiropractic sports physician, and director of coaching services at Breakthrough Coaching LLC. Lewin is a sought after international speaker and been a frequent guest on radio talk shows in the Fort Lauderdale area.
“The games of the 19th Maccabiah will provide an incredible opportunity to provide chiropractic care to athletes from all over the world. For many, this may be the first time they have been able to experience the benefits of chiropractic care or even heard of what a chiropractor is! It is an honor to serve our profession in such a pure and passionate way,” says Lewin.
The Hygenic Corporation will be donating its Biofreeze cold therapy pain relief products to help comfort the sore muscles, strains, and sprains these first-class athletes will experience during the sporting event. If any company wishes to provide products or support the games, they may contact Weber at firstname.lastname@example.org or Lewin at JeffDC18@aol.com.
