Since graduating chiropractic college, Dr. Rick Fox has been focusing his chiropractic practice on sports care and movement therapy. He started his journey working with athletes from the AVP (Association of Volleyball Professionals) and the WPVA (Women’s Professional Volleyball Association in the mid to late 1980’s. Dr. Fox worked at the Soft Tissue Center in Los Angeles – focusing on soft tissue therapy and rehabilitation with Olympic Medalists from the USA and Jamaican Track and Field teams, as well as athletes from the NHL, NFL, MLB, body builders, and weight lifters – before going on to launch his own private practice in Arcadia, California.
After many years of working with athletes, Dr. Fox founded the medical team for the Los Angeles Derby Dolls, an all-female, banked track roller derby league, in 2006. This led to his being the only chiropractor for the World Cup 1 & 2 of Roller Derby in Toronto, Canada, and Dallas, Texas, respectively. His experience with the athletes in roller derby led to his creating and designing Second Knee, a unique knee brace designed after anatomy to stabilize, support and protect the knee. This led to the formation of his company, Dynamic Bracing Designs, LLC, where he is CEO and continues to dabble with inventing health care products for the betterment of his and other patients.
Dr. Fox graduated from the Cleveland Chiropractic College of Los Angeles in 1983. In 1987, he began his post-doctoral work in athletic injuries, becoming a certified chiropractic sports physician. In 1992, Dr. Fox was honored as the 16th person in the world to receive diplomate status with the American Chiropractic Board of Sports Physicians as a chiropractic sports physician.
As a former faculty member of Southern California University of Health Sciences, Dr. Fox served as an assistant professor in clinical sciences, supervising interns in patient care. He remains an associate faculty member, offering chiropractic interns a private practice rotation in sports injuries and acute trauma with the Los Angeles Derby Dolls.
For fun, Dr. Fox enjoys playing with his dogs, playing guitar, organic gardening/farming to stay connected with the Earth and Tai Chi/Chi-Gong for balance, energy and breath.
