Dr. Phelan, of Phelan Performance Healthcare, was born and raised in the south suburbs of Denver, and was a year-round athlete participating in baseball and snowboarding all his life. After suffering a low back injury in high school he sought out quick, non-invasive treatment options. Through a recommendation from a family member, he was introduced to chiropractic. To his amazement, his back injury was resolved quickly, and he was able to return to the field pain free. After high school, he chased his passion for baseball and received a D1 scholarship to play at South Dakota State University. It was there he chose to study Biology and Pre-Med which re-ignited his passion for healing. He recalled his experience with Chiropractic medicine and decided he would become a Chiropractic Physician. Dr. Phelan graduated from National University of Health Sciences in 2016 with his Doctorate in Chiropractic Medicine.
Dr. Phelan focuses strongly on diversified adjusting, sports rehab, end range loading, nutrition, DNS (Dynamic Neuromuscular Stabilization), Acupuncture, dry needling and kinesio taping. Throughout his education he realized the importance of functional intervention with proper mechanical rehabilitation. This re-education of movement patterns along with optimal nutrition was the key to successful patient outcomes. Dr. Phelan takes a full body approach to each patient encounter, and is not afraid to look past the symptoms to uncover the true cause of the complaint. His combination of treatments has allowed each patient to elevate their potential, and achieve their health and wellness goals.
