Eric St. Pierre, DC, DACBSP
Eric St. Pierre is a Doctor of Chiropractic who is board certified and residency trained in Chiropractic Sports Medicine. He holds bachelor’s degrees in movement science (BS) and nursing science (BSN), and as a result offers a unique practice to help manage and address difficult cases and prevent injury. With over 20 years experience in elite sports medicine, he has been located in Lafayette CO since 2009, offering all patient types a resource for their injuries and wellness goals.
Dr. St. Pierre utilizes soft tissue treatment techniques that include Graston, cupping, therapeutic exercise, dry needling therapy and other manual therapies. These treatment methods, in conjunction with his medical diagnostic and case management abilities allow him to tease out results or answers for the most stubborn physical complaints where other Chiropractors, Physicians, Physical Therapists and healthcare providers have a difficult time. At 17 years old Eric broke his femur playing ice hockey which led him down a personal path of recovery and provided him a unique opportunity to support those also dealing with sport and life related injuries.
IN 2010, Eric had the privilege of being Head Medical Trainer for US Olympic Short Track Speedskating at the Vancouver Winter Olympic Games, after working with 6 other National Governing Bodies within Olympic and other elite athletic program. After returning back to his private practice in Lafayette, he was again honored to be a member of the USA Olympic Medical Staff at the Sochi Winter Olympic Games in 2014 where he not only worked with the American Short Track Speedskating athletes but was also busy supporting the Men’s and Women’s hockey programs. Many elite sports medicine opportunities over the years has allowed him to work with hundreds of Olympic hopefuls, elite youth athletes, World champions, and Olympic champions.
However, most of Eric’s everyday patient’s 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, while being creative in finding solutions others don’t necessarily consider. Two popular patient types are youth athletes and their parents looking for help managing growth and development, and aging active people between 40-70 years old who are motivated to keep moving, invest in their wellness and learn about what goals, options and expectations are reasonable given their situation. In the end, the best results come from good management, not simply miracle treatment. Dr. Eric St. Pierre is happy to meet you where you are in your hopes and goals.
