On this episode of the Healthy Wealthy and Smart Podcast, I welcome Dr. Jon Mulholland on the show to discuss how to get involved on the medical team for Olympic athletes. Dr. Mulholland has acted as the Chiropractic Consultant for the United States Olympic Training Center in Lake Placid, NY, and has traveled extensively as one of the team chiropractors for the US Bobsled & Skeleton Teams. He has worked multiple World Championship events in a variety of sports, and has treated athletes from dozens of different countries. He was also the Sports Medicine & Performance Enhancement consultant for the New Zealand Cycling Teams at the 2012 Summer Olympic Games in London, where he helped the team win two Olympic medals.

In this episode, we discuss:

-How health professionals can get involved with Olympic Athletes

-Jon’s experiences working in the Olympic village

-Common misconceptions about the Chiropractic and Physical Therapy professions

-Key habits that high-level athletes have developed to enhance their performance

-And so much more!

 

“If the athlete thinks it works—it works. Period.”

 

“Have a good skillset and be a good person.”

 

“If you’ve ever worked with sport, it sounds glamorous, but it rarely is.”

 

“Show up every day.”

 

“It’s a long-term commitment in the world of Olympics.”
