Eric St. Pierre DC, DACBSP, CSCS

Eric St. Pierre is a Doctor of Chiropractic who is residency trained in sports medicine. He also holds bachelor’s degrees in movement science (BS) and nursing science (BSN). As a result, he offers a unique practice that can help manage and address the most difficult cases. Dr. St. Pierre founded ESP Sports Medicine to provide patients with access to high-quality care provided by well-trained providers. He has organized a sports medicine physical rehabilitation specialist team who offer excellent treatments. In addition, these providers have an array of skills and a superior diagnostic ability. These differences are what separates them from others in the medical field.

Dr. St. Pierre utilizes soft tissue treatment techniques that include Graston, vacuum cupping, and dry needling therapy. These methods, in conjunction with therapeutic exercise, tease out results for the most difficult physical complaints.

In 2010 Eric had the privilege of being Head Medical Trainer for US Olympic Short Track Speedskating in Vancouver. After that, he was honored again by the USA Olympic Medical Staff at the Sochi Winter Olympic Games in 2014. Again, he was the Head Medical Trainer for US Olympic Short Track Speedskating. This opportunity allowed him to work with hundreds of Olympic hopefuls, elite youth athletes, World champions, and Olympic champions.

Although Eric has worked with many classes of elite athletes, his main patient base are everyday people. Active or not, Dr. St. Pierre enjoys helping with patients with difficult conditions that need another level of attention. His strengths lay in his ability to listen and understand, which translates into a superb attention to detail. Eric takes the time to address your needs and he would love the chance to assist you with your challenges.

History

My Favorite Adventure: Hiking 8 miles deep into the Havasupai Tribal land at the base of the Western Grand Canyon. I found the most beautiful aqua blue-green water and gorgeous waterfalls I had ever seen. “The People of the Blue-Green Water”, as the Havasupai are named, live on some of the most wonderfully secluded land in North America.

Eat for Real: I feel nutrition is our strongest source for health, along with a healthy and balanced lifestyle. However, in a world where people want pills to fix them, they often overlook clean, natural, and vibrant food options. In other words, non-processed foods could very well be the “pill of health” people are looking for. You just need to take it multiple times a day.

Making the change: Our society finally consumes water, rather than soda or processed drinks, as its primary source of fluid AGAIN! As a result, our kids are consuming fewer, healthier calories than their parents ever did. Also, people seem to appreciate local and sustainable food options more than ever before. We’re beginning to realize that consuming leaner and cleaner fats provides us with a better physiological balance. In other words, fat isn’t bad! It also helps support a more efficient healing ability. It’s the science of healing.
