Dr. Kipp Streff
Dr. Kipp Streff was born and raised in Hastings, Nebraska. After excelling in several sports, he attended Doane College on a football scholarship where he received his Bachelors degree in Biology with the intent of pursuing a career as a surgeon. After graduating, he had the opportunity to travel to Europe to play post-college football. These experiences afforded him an opportunity to work and train with many elite athletes and recognized professionals, but a sports related back injury led him to question the philosophies and focus of traditional medicine when they yielded little to no results and offered potentially serious side-effects. With a desire to treat patients with a more natural approach, Dr. Streff enrolled in Parker College of Chiropractic in Dallas, Texas.
In 2008, Dr. Streff was recognized by the American Chiropractic Board of Sports Physicians (ACBSP) as a Certified Chiropractic Sports Physician (CCSP). He has received training in Myofacial Release Techniques, Certified in Graston Technique and Certified in FAKTR-PM (Functional And Kinetic Treatment with Rehabilitation, Provocation and Motion), Kinesio taping and "ROCK Tape" Performance Taping. These methods are mixed with traditional Chiropractic manipulative adjustments, Gonstead, Thompson, Activator, functional rehabilitation and exercise to create a protocol that is specific to each individual patient.
Dr. Streff holds his Titleist Performance Institute (TPI) certification. The TPI certification is designed to overcome and eliminate any physical restrictions that may be limiting a golfers potential. As a TPI treating professional Dr. Streff is educated in the latest in golf-specific health and fitness, from golf swing biomechanics, to physical screening techniques, to exercise prescriptions, to the most recent research and development in the field of golf swing analysis. The Titleist Functional Movement Screen Utilizes a grading system that documents movement patterns that are key to normal function. By screening these patterns, the FMS readily identifies functional limitations and asymmetries. These are issues that can reduce the effects of functional training and physical conditioning and distort body awareness. This allows to produce the most beneficial treatment and corrective exercises to restore mechanically sound movement patterns. This is not only benefitial for golfers but athletes of all sports.
