WICHITA — Chiropractor Casey Hummel is having an open house next week for his new east-side BlueChip Spine & Sports Specialists and is working on opening a west-side location next month.
Hummel’s business is what he calls a chiropractic sports rehab facility. He mainly treats sports injuries but will work on any patient.
Hummel specializes in soft tissue work with something called an active-release technique. He’ll also do traditional chiropractic adjustments as needed.
“Sometimes people don’t even realize I’m a chiropractor.”
He says the technique “really feels more like a stretch, like a fine-tuned stretch.”
“It’s really been effective and really opened a lot of doors for us clinically.”
Hummel is a Wichita-area native but had been working in Dallas when a professional athlete here called him seeking help for his back.
Five years ago, Hummel moved back and opened BlueChip within Pure-Formance Sports & Fitness Training Center in Andover.
