Donna Rebadow L.Ac, C.SMA
onna Rebadow is an Arizona sports medicine acupuncturist. Her SMAC Certification has opened up a huge new world in Sports Medicine Acupuncture—because of this training she now has eight Major League Baseball teams sending her players during Spring Training. She’s also begun working on NFL players and secured a job at ALTIS, the elite athlete training center in Phoenix. There she’s had the opportunity to work on Olympic medalists and world record holders from over 28 countries. In addition, she is on the medical staff for USA Bobsled and Skeleton, which are currently on tour in Germany and Austria.
“The education and training SMAC provided got my practice to the point now where 90% of my patients are elite, professional and Olympic athletes. This work has even inspired several of my colleagues to begin blending TCM and musculoskeletal medicine.”
Donna recalls an inspiring story:
“One of my favorite moments was when a free agent NFL player was able to recover from complex and multiple injuries. He was recently signed with an NFL playoff contender and expressed his appreciation for the work he and I did in order to get him ready when he got his call!”
