Dr. Erin Ducat

Whether you’re new to running or compete in several marathons each year, Dr. Erin Ducat and the Sports Clinic team at Ducat Chiropractic & Wellness Center in Bloomingdale, IL are here to help you train smarter, perform better and stay injury-free.

In addition to her training as a Chiropractic Physician at the National University of Health Sciences, Dr. Erin Ducat is a Board-Certified Chiropractic Sports Physician, Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist (NSCA), Certified Kinesiotape Practitioner, Certified in Gait and Orthotic Therapy and Graston Technique provider.

Unlike many family practice physicians or chiropractors, when you come to us for care, you are carefully examined by a Board-Certified Sports Specialist who won’t just tell you to take a break from running and try some pills or injections. She will discuss your symptoms and identify all the areas of your body that are tight, tender, weak and deconditioned (not just your spine like many chiropractors).  Combined with your goals, she then designs a customized treatment plan to get you back to 100% as quickly as possible using chiropractic manipulation, rehabilitation, Graston Technique, Kinesiotaping. massage therapy, foot orthotic therapy or even acupuncture, depending on your needs.

 

Our approach to rehabilitation emphasizes control and stability with quality, one-on-one attention for your entire therapy session that you just don’t get at the big rehab chains. Dr. Ducat customizes each treatment plan based on your weaknesses and carefully monitors your progress.  Our staff prides itself in excellent communication skills and we regularly attend continuing education seminars to keep our knowledge at the forefront of sports medicine.  We don’t believe in having you complete the same boring exercises each time you come in for care — we like to help you progress quickly, challenging your muscles and tweaking your program on a daily basis.

When you’re ready to take the next step towards pain-free running, call us at 224-653-8094 and we’ll be glad to reserve you an examination with Dr. Ducat.  We offer minimum-wait morning, afternoon and evening appointments and are in-network with most insurance plans.
