Dr. Leo C. Kormanik II “treats others as he would like to be treated.” As an elite distance runner and 2012 Olympic Trials marathon qualifier, his career as an athlete was littered with injuries. Due to these setbacks, he dedicated himself to learning the best ways to treat and prevent injuries both swiftly and effectively, therefore shortening recovery time for the athlete, and preventing future setbacks. As a result, Dr. Kormanik is not only proficient in the spine and extremity adjusting but is also certified in Active Release Technique (ART), Graston Technique, Fascial Abrasion Technique (FAT-Tool), and Dry Needling.
Dr. Kormanik is recognized by the American Chiropractic Board of Sports Physicians as a Certified Chiropractic Sports Practitioner (CCSP). This means Dr. Kormanik is one in a select group of chiropractic providers capable of treating athletes at the highest level of professional sports. He has also volunteered as a physician for USA Track and Field and USA Gymnastics at numerous championships and events. Furthermore, in 2016 he completed an internship at the Olympic Training Center headquarters helping to prep the USA teams before the Rio Olympics. Dr. Kormanik was also selected as the volunteer team chiropractor for Team USA for the IAAF Junior World Track Championships in Finland in 2018.
Dr. Kormanik by no means limits himself to treating athletes. His goal is to help anyone looking to improve their personal performance health. Performance health goals will vary from person to person. For example, reaching optimal performance health can mean less pain while walking, more strength doing yard work, shooting the winning goal, or running a personal best.
Dr. Kormanik attended Life University in Atlanta, GA (2008-2011) where he earned a Doctor of Chiropractic degree and a Masters in Sports Injury Management. Born in Akron, OH and a graduate and Hall of Fame member of Malone University in Canton, OH, he chose to bring his passion for performance health home to northeast Ohio by opening Ohio Sports Chiropractic in 2012.
