The next Sports Chiro Australia (SCA) webinar, titled Practical Nutrition Application for Athletes, will cover practical nutrition information for weekend warriors and competitive and recreational athletes.

With a Master’s degree in human nutrition, this webinar will be presented by chiropractor Dr Troy Walker. Dr Walker has been in practice for 10 years, with a number of those years working within Indigenous communities in Australia. He has a special interest in active care as it relates to exercise prescription as well as diet modification, sports and clinical nutrition.

Learning Outcomes:

  • Learn how much protein should athletes consume per day and the best types of protein (including supplemental protein) for skeletal muscle and protein timing.
  • Understand evidence-based supplements that are worth investing in for the performance of your patients. Caffeine, creatine, beta-alanine/bicarbonate and beetroot juice (or concentrated dietary nitrates).
