Dr. R. Keith McCormick is a chiropractic physician specializing in the management of patients with osteoporosis. He is the author of the recently released book – Great Bones: Taking Control of Your Osteoporosis and The Whole Body Approach to Osteoporosis.
Sports have always played a vital part in Dr. McCormick’s life. He is the former U.S. record holder for the most points scored in a pentathlon competition. Dr. McCormick continues to compete in triathlons of all distances and has completed six Ironman competitions, five of them after recovering from multiple osteoporosis-related fractures.
