While in his last year of education, he had the opportunity to strengthen his clinical experience by providing chiropractic care to a wide range of patients. From infants to elite athletes, he was challenged to incorporate a variety of different chiropractic techniques. Dr. Heasty also spent four months working at Paraquad, near downtown St. Louis. Paraquad is a center that tailors their programs and services to provide hands-on, practical assistance for people with disabilities. During his internship he provided chiropractic care to individuals with multiple sclerosis, muscular dystrophy, as well as treating patients recovering from spinal cord injury and/or stroke. The strength and joy these individuals exuberated on a daily basis made it the most humbling and rewarding experience of Dr. Heasty’s life.
While at Logan University, Dr. Heasty, concurrently worked on his Masters in Sports Rehabilitation in which he will be completing in the near future by way of a 12 week internship. His ultimate goal is to utilize this knowledge to work with athletes of all ages, integrating mobility and stability corrective exercises that will lessen risk of injury and enhance performance.
