Dr. Pat Helma

About

Dr. Pat Helma is a new addition to Rallysport.  He maintained a private practice in Florida for 30 years working with 2 local high schools as their team physician, as well as a physician for the Professional Beach Volleyball, Professional Surfing, and National rodeo tours.  In 2007, he was awarded the Sports Chiropractor of the Year for the United States. Dr. Helma lectures throughout the country on sports injuries, concussion management, and Foundation Training. In 2019, he moved to Boulder, CO to work at RallySport as a Chiropractor and human movement specialist teaching Foundation Training.

“With Foundation Training, I believe I’ve found the missing link between training and recovery. By restoring natural fundamental movement patterns, building true core and posterior chain strength, injury risk is reduced, and the body moves from a more balanced position. Foundation Training not only reduces pain but opens a road map to fitness, giving you the tools to go and do whatever you want with assurance. I like to look at Foundation Training, not as a replacement for anything you are already doing, but a complement to everything you do.”
