Job Opportunity in a Sports Acupuncture Facility

My name is Derrick McBride and I have a Sports Acupuncture practice in Denver called FIX Performance Medicine. ( I’m looking to add another practitioner to my clinic.  This position would be perfect for a new graduate or someone interested in switching their focus of practice to sports and orthopedic acupuncture. This is a unique opportunity to learn from a sports specific practitioner in an exclusively orthopedic and sports medicine practice.

  • A focus in orthopedic and anatomical needling either during school or continuing education
  • A background in movement – Strength Coach, Personal Trainer, Etc

Most of all, I’m looking for someone who is really motivated to learn sports and orthopedic specific treatment styles and everything that entails – orthopedic and muscle testing, functional movement assessments, anatomical needling techniques, and corrective exercise prescription.
