“Wow, just Wow. Dr. NajafBagy brought his exceptional hands-on treatment skills to help educate some of the leading physicians in the country.”

Dr. NajafBagy (Dr. H) presented to over 200 team physicians last week at the 2017 Advanced Team Physician Course held in Washington, DC.  The conference was sponsored by the American College of Sports Medicine acsm.org , the American Medical Society for Sports Medicine http://www.amssm.org , and the American Orthopedic Society of Sports Medicine http://www.sportsmed.org/ . Dr. Mark Hutchinson, the Advanced Team Physicians Course Director and Orthopedic Surgeon in Chicago, IL gave this wonderful testimonial after the presentation.

Wow, just Wow.  Dr. NajafBagy (endearingly known to his patients as Dr. H) brought his exceptional hands-on treatment skills to help educate some of the leading physicians in the country at the ACSM/AOSSM/AMSSM Advanced Team Physician Course held recently in Washington DC.  The fact that he brought his good friend, three time Cy Young winner Max Scherzer, along as a model created a session in which every attendee was glued to every word and technique that Dr. H demonstrated.  Dr. NajafBagy’s education of these team physicians will serve to impact the care of athletes across the country.  Kudos to Dr. H (and Max) for a great program.  His patients are truly blessed to have access to a great clinician.”

Dr Hirad NajafBagy Presenting Dec 7 for American College of Sports Medicine

Dr H presents at the 2nd Annual INOVA Capital City Sports Medicine Summit

WEEKEND WINDUP BLOG POST – Friday, May 12, 2017

This weekend is the 2nd Annual INOVA Capital City Sports Medicine Summit presented by Inova’s Sports Medicine Department. The course description is as follows, “The diagnosis and management of football related injuries have dramatically changed over the past decade. This 2 day interactive course will feature regionally and nationally acclaimed sports medicine specialists from top NFL and NCAA football programs. This Summit will focus on the latest, evidence-based approach to the diagnosis and treatment of football related injuries. There will also be a historical perspective from our panel of highly experienced longtime team physicians, athletic trainers, players and physical therapists.”

We are proud to announce that Dr. Hirad Najaf Bagy, the owner and chief doctor at United Wellness & Sports Rehab, will be a presenter on Saturday. While it is an honor for anyone to be asked to present at a conference of this magnitude, it is especially significant for the chiropractic profession, due to the topic that Dr. Najaf Bagy will be addressing. “The Role of the Team Chiropractor” is the title of his presentation, but Dr. Najaf Bagy will also be answering the question, “Why do sports teams need a chiropractor as part of the medical team.” The chiropractic profession has long been questioned as to their role in the medical field. Fortunately with more substantial results based research, treatment success of high profile individuals such as athletes and musicians, the profession is becoming widely recognized as a vital part of health and wellness.

Dr. Najaf Bagy has been the team chiropractor for D.C. United, the Washington Redskins and Washington Nationals throughout the last decade. A very precise and hands-on protocol, named Bio-Orthomechanics, was created by Dr. Najaf Bagy to not only successfully treat the injuries of these professional athletes, but to also increase and maintain performance throughout an athlete’s career.

London Fletcher is one of these athletes. Fletcher was well known for never missing a game in his career, being one of only four players in NFL history to play in over 250 consecutive games. In an August 2013 article on Fletcher by Sports Illustrated, which discusses Dr. Najaf Bagy’s work, Fletcher discusses his daily commitment to keeping his body in peak performance in season and off season. The full article URL is here:

The fact that nearly all NFL teams now have one or more chiropractic sports doctors on their medical team clearly says that chiropractic care is an essential part of the care of an athlete. A chiropractor’s hands-on approach to soft tissue manipulation, joint mobilization and their comprehensive biomechanical assessment is critical in the treatment and recovery of athletes at any level.

We look forward to sharing more of Dr. Najaf Bagy’s presentation with you after this weekend. We are very proud that he is representing our offices and the chiropractic profession at the INOVA Sports Medicine Summit in Washington, DC this weekend.
