Brandon Smith



Human Performance & Rotary Specialist


Brandon Smith is a Strength and Conditioning Sport Scientist dedicated to meet the needs of the highest trained competitive athletes. Holding a Bachelor’s degree in Sports Rehabilitation, a Master’s degree in Sport Science, starting his Doctorate in Sport & Performance Psychology, as well as highly recognized certifications, his primary focus is to increase human performance through proper movement integration while decreasing injury through correct biomechanics.

Brandon has a theory that increasing states of physical performance are slowed indefinitely if the positive psychological markers that go along with it are not obtained. Motivation, self-efficacy, and increased confidence is what makes an athlete strive to become the best. He fits these mindful motivation techniques into his training to create a friendly, family oriented environment, where the athletes can generate confidence and increase hormonal drive to facilitate increases in muscle mass, enhanced agility, reaction time and quickness, and increase power output through force development.

Dr. Dustin R. Glass, Doctor of Chiropractic

Certified A.R.T., and Graston Techniques Provider

Team Chiropractor - USA Volleyball (Men and Women)

Chiropractic Consultant - Anaheim Ducks (NHL)




Dr. Glass attended the prestigious Palmer College of Chiropractic, where he worked as a Teachers Assistant (T.A) in the Chiropractic Techniques Department.This has given him the ability to adapt to many "chiropractic situations" where different techniques may be more applicable depending on the individual case. Not all cases are the same, and we are all individually unique, so having more than one technique to use is critical for optimum care.


The word "chiropractic" comes from the Greek words cheir (hand) and praxis (action) and literally means "done by hand." Instead of prescribing drugs or performing surgeries, chiropractors use manual treatments of the spine and joints, exercise therapy, massage, trigger point therapy and lifestyle changes to allow the body's natural state of health to fully express itself.


Besides being a Doctor of Chiropractic, Dr. Dustin R. Glass is also a Certified Active Release Techniques® (ART) and Graston Technique® (GT) Provider and utilizes : Erchonia Low-Level Laser Therapy (LLLT),TurboSonic® Whole Body Vibration Technology and Kinesio Taping® (KT), giving him the necessary tools needed to successfully treat most musculoskeletal conditions.
