Dr. Brittany Haupt

Dr. Brittany Haupt is the newest doctor to the Champion Health team.  Dr. Haupt graduated from Palmer College of Chiropractic, Florida (Cum laude) in March of 2015.  She is an outdoor adventurer, lifetime chiropractic patient, and an advocate for healthy lifestyles. 

Dr. Haupt moved to Colorado in January 2015 for her internship in the Vail Valley, then relocated to Colorado Springs in April 2015. 

Before Colorado and chiropractic school, Dr. Haupt attended Virginia Tech in Blacksburg, Virginia.  She earned a Bachelor of Science in Human Nutrition, Foods, and Exercise.  She grew up in the Northern Virginia region and is from Gainesville, Virginia.  She was an avid athlete throughout her years and was apart of school and club athletic teams year round. Dr. Haupt excelled in soccer, volleyball, and swimming.  Her summers often consisted of time spent at the family lake house.  Lake house activities ranged from waterskiing and wakeboarding to canoeing and fishing, as well as evening s’more roasting and card games. 

Having always been an athlete, health and optimal performance is exceptionally important.  Her mother, who is also a chiropractor, kept Dr. Haupt at the top of her game year round.  Although injuries are sometimes unavoidable, Dr. Haupt is able to use her experiences with aches, pains and rehabilitation techniques to better relate to and serve her patients.  

“A body at rest stays at rest; a body in motion stays in motion.”

Pinnacle Weightlifting Classic

For USA Weightlifting athletes, there’s a constant stress put on their bodies. The intense demand on the muscles and joints as a weightlifter grasps the bar, plants their feet into the ground and lifts the weight (often heavier than themselves) high over their head, poses a high risk for injury. 

With these considerations in mind, Champion Health’s two chiropractors worked hard to keep some of the most talented athletes in their field in perfect performance shape over the weekend of February 6th, 2016 during the Pinnacle Weightlifting Classic. Jackie Berube, owner of Pinnacle Weightlifting, six time national weightlifting champion, current American record holder in the clean and jerk and total weight, invited Dr. Brittany Haupt and Dr. Gary Wood from Champion Health into her gym for the meet. Jackie recognized the benefit these doctors could offer the athletes of all levels; from the youth to the women and men’s divisions and even the crowd spectators, Dr. Haupt and Dr. Wood delivered care to help everyone achieve optimal movement and health. http://www.pinnaclesportsperformance.me/

Champion Health is located in Colorado Springs and the practitioners specialize in Active Release Techniques or “ART”. This specialized treatment is a patented, state of the art soft tissue system/movement based massage technique that treats problems with muscles, tendons, ligaments, fascia and nerves. A few common ailments this technique is an application for include: headaches, back pain, carpal tunnel syndrome, shin splints, shoulder pain, sciatica, plantar fasciitis, knee problems, and tennis elbow. Patients with these and similar conditions have found resolution quickly and permanently with ART. These conditions all have one important thing in common: they are often a result of overused muscles as we see in competitive weightlifting.  ART combined with chiropractic adjustments, enabled the athletes to perform their best during the USA Weightlifting meet at Pinnacle Weightlifting & Sports Performance. 

Dr. Haupt also has one of only a handful of special Kinetisense® technology machines.  It captures real-time statistics with range of motion and this state-of-the-art equipment helped Dr. Haupt see difference, specifically to the 100th degree, in the athletes’ movement.  Kinetisense captures range of motion for individual joints, posture position, as well as functional movement measurements.  For example, capturing a weightlifters motion while actually performing a clean, to see the discrepancies in their movement patterns. When you get the body out of its own way, it is amazing how one can perform at the highest capable level. http://www.kinetisense.com/

Champion Health’s mission, both at this event and in the office is to offer the best chiropractic care, exercise, and wellness advice to optimize performance.
