For many, the first signs of spring bring thoughts of a new season of baseball. Major league teams begin the trek from the chilly north down to Florida and Arizona for spring training, looking to bring players’ bodies into top form to be able to rack runs up come opening day.
The Pittsburgh Pirates recently selected Dr. Ken Kaufman to be their official chiropractor for the 2021 spring training season. For the past 11 seasons, Dr. Kaufman has also served as the spring training chiropractor for the Baltimore Orioles. “I am very excited to work with the Pirates,” said Dr. Ken Kaufman, DC. “Athletes are motivated to achieve peak performance. My goal is to partner with them to meet their goals. We want to keep the team healthy, and should an injury occur, get them back to doing what they love. My extensive practice includes a broad spectrum of sports medicine, and I will work with each athlete to identify and plan treatment that works.” he added.
Dr. Kaufman is the founder of Sarasota Sports Medicine and been treating patients in Sarasota for nearly 3 decades. Dr. Kaufman is a member of the Professional Baseball Chiropractic Society. He gained extensive experience as a former board member of the Sarasota Area Sports Alliance, and a former advisory board member for Keiser University Sports Medicine and Fitness Technology Program.
Baseball is a game that teaches determination, hustle, and teamwork, but there is always the possibility of injury. These injuries can range from concussions to sprains and strains. Over his career, Dr. Kaufman has worked with Hall of Fame player Jim Thome, 2x all-star Brian Roberts, as well Many Machado, Jim Johnson, Chris Davis, Matt Weiters, and more. As the team chiropractor for the MLB, he's worked alongside trainers from the Yankees, Braves, and Orioles, and with team physicians from the prestigious Johns Hopkins University.
The Pirates work extremely hard to actively plan services and hire staff that benefits the safety and health of their players. Dr. Kaufman said he is “…thrilled to be able to help put those plans into action.”
