Dr. Meghan Faulkner DC, CCSP ART

I have always been an active and competitive person.  Growing up, I competed in the American Quarter Horse Association for 4 years. Through high school and college, I was a member of dance teams, which provided me with experiences competing on a national and local level, as well as being involved in the basketball spirit squad and local community appearances and charity events. I coached the North Georgia College and State University dance team for 2 years after that. I also ran the 400 and 4×4 events in track for a few years in high school.  I currently train and compete as a CrossFit athlete at OPEX Leander.

 

After graduating with my Bachelor’s of Science in Exercise and Sport Science from North Georgia College and State University in 2009, I moved to Portland, Oregon to attend University of Western States, where I earned a second Bachelor of Science in Biology, a Master’s in Exercise and Sport Science, and a Doctorate of Chiropractic Medicine.  I am certified through the National Board of Chiropractic Examiners, and recently became a Certified Chiropractic Sports Physician (CCSP).  I am a certified Active Release Technique provider and I have experience with:

 

– Diversified technique            – Functional Movement Screens

– SFMA                                              – Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue

– Kinesiology taping                  – FAKTR

– Activator technique               – Applied Kinesiology

I worked for 3 years in different physical therapy offices and environments and 2 years in sports and conditioning programs, including an internship with the University of Texas Football Strength and Conditioning program.  I have honed my skills as a Sports Medicine Chiropractor by working with athletes from a myriad of disciplines, including but not limited to: football, basketball, soccer, volleyball, tennis, rugby, running, swimming, handball, rodeo, dance and CrossFit.

My practice is built around patient-centered care, functional rehabilitation and providing exceptional chiropractic treatment. In addition to my passion for sports medicine and chiropractic, the experience I have with a large variety of musculoskeletal conditions and types of sports, sets me apart from other health care providers.
