Dr. Domenick’s affinity for athletics has always been a driving force in his personal and professional development. The game of soccer specifically has been a special blessing to him and has brought him many wonderful experiences, opportunities, and learning lessons.
Dr. Domenick believes his exposure to different cultures (much due to soccer) has been paramount in his development. Interestingly, a soccer injury is what first introduced him to the medicinal/therapeutic value of chiropractic care.
Having been hurt during a regional tryout for the United States national program, Dr. Domenick was taken to an osteopathic physician who recommended treatment via a chiropractor. Not only was the treatment an instant success but Dr. Domenick was able to go back to his training and advanced to his next tryout level. The seed for becoming a chiropractor was planted.
Back in Chi-Town, during breaks from his duties as a student and fellow, Dr. Domenick found himself maintaining his interest in athletics by participating in well-known running events, working as a certified personal trainer/coach, and staying involved with the game of soccer. Dr. Domenick enjoyed training for and running both the Soldier Field 10 Mile and the Nike 10 Mile races and looks forward to running his first Indianapolis Mini-Marathon this spring on May 3.
He also played for the soccer team at NUHS and eventually developed a relationship with the creators of the “Chicago World Cup” soccer program. Not only did this relationship help provide his fellow students at NUHS with clinical experience, it helped provide the soccer players and staff members of the tournament with much needed care.
He maintains affiliation with the Carmel United Soccer Club (affiliated with the Chicago Fire of the MLS) on the north side of Indianapolis as a coach, but looks forward to becoming involved in the soccer community in the Greensburg and Decatur County areas.
