Dr. Joe Ford, DC

Director of Sports Medicine

Dr Ford has been in practice for over 27yrs. His journey began as an athlete growing up in north Texas. He has always enjoyed sports and gets to continue that passion by helping athletes be their best! His experience as the chiropractor for New England Patriots, Dallas Cowboys, New Orlean Saints, Atlanta Falcons, Houston Texans, Dallas Stars, FC Dallas, U.S. Olympic team, USA Bobsled and Skeleton, Baylor University, and numerous other teams has earned him as the doctor “where the pro’s go”. He attended Baylor University for undergrad and Parker University for his doctorate of Chiropractic Medicine, and Northwestern Health and Science Center for his Sports Medicine Specialty.
“I have been blessed with the unique opportunity to work on a wide variety of people. From non-athletes to amateur, elite, and professional athletes. Due to my expertise in everyday well-being, along with sports performance and injury analysis, I have gained the respect and confidence of athletes, coaches and trainers alike.
I am focused on a speedy recovery and injury prevention through addressing the entire body as a whole. This is what all our top athletes expect and it is what we provide for ALL our patients. My approach is not to replace conventional medicine but incorporate the two for the benefit of our patients.”
