Welcome to our practice website which is currently under construction.
Dr. Knapp has been practicing in Sarasota, FL since 1985 after graduating Magna Cum Laude for Logan College of Chiropractic in St. Louis, MO. Since that time he has received additional training in Chiropractic Orthopedics and Chiropractic Rehabilitation. In 2004 he sustained a back injury and was left with unremitting back and leg pain despite extensive alternative and conventional medical care. This lead the doctor to investigate the newer FDA cleared high power therapeutic lasers . The results were amazing allowing him to continue practice and return to distance cycling.
Since that time Dr. Knapp became involved in educating and training other physicians in the application of Class IV laser therapy. He is an active researcher and lecturer on combining this modality in the treatment of musculoskeletal injuries and pain.
He also enjoys treating athletic injuries and is the team chiropractor for the Sarasota YMCA Gymnastics and Swim programs. He has completed the Kinesiotape Practitioner training.
