Joel P. (“Chip”) Carmichael, DACBSP®
Dr. Joel (“Chip”) Carmichael became a chiropractor because of the remarkable, immediate pain relief and long-term performance benefits he experienced from chiropractic care as a middle school and high school athlete. Those benefits shaped his desire to become a chiropractor, and to serve not only those with spinal conditions, but also sports injuries.
Graduating at the very top of his class from Logan College of Chiropractic in St. Louis in 1985, Dr. Carmichael earned Diplomate status in 1996 from the American Chiropractic Board of Sports Physicians (the ACBSP®). He later served several terms as a board member, and has served as its Vice President. He was the team physician for a local Denver High School for 15 years, and he has treated many elite collegiate, high school and professional athletes in his 33 years in clinical practice. Dr. Carmichael has served as a member of the Manual Medicine committee of the American Back Society and held memberships in both the North American Spine Society and the American Academy of Pain Management. Until he began traveling to cover athletes at international events he has worked in clinic with fellowship-trained spine surgeons (both orthopedists and neurosurgeons) in the management of back pain, neck pain and complex spinal disorders. Uniquely, Dr. Carmichael is the second chiropractor in the United States to complete a one year residency in a medical hospital. Further, he is currently pursuing a PhD at the University of Colorado School of Medicine | Anschutz Medical Campus, with research interests in orthopedic rehabilitation and sports injury prevention. He has lectured nationally and internationally, has published and presented numerous scientific articles including research on concussion, sacroiliac joint pain, foot biomechanics, sports injury management, a chapter on elbow, hand and wrist injuries for a sports medicine textbook, and spine pain.
