Dr Ivo F Waerlop attended SUNY at Albany for his undergraduate work and graduated from the New York Chiropractic College in 1986. He then joined the Core Science faculty at the college and taught anatomy and cadaver dissection as well as Gonstead and Diversified chiropractic techniques. It was at this time he conducted research performing a serial dissection of alar ligaments in cadavers and completed post graduate work in Sports Medicine, receiving his Certified Chiropractic Sports Physician certification.
Dr Ivo then moved to Gloucester, Massachusetts where he founded Gloucester Chiropractic and Rehabilitation, a medically referral based office complete with CYBEX lab. During his time in Massachusetts, he completed additional post graduate work in rehabilitation and was accepted into the chiropractic neurology program at Logan Chiropractic College in St Louis, Missouri. Here, he was one of the fortunate doctors who studied directly under Dr Ted Carrick, and after 3 years and passing his written and oral board examinations, was awarded his Diplomate in Neurology Degree in May of 1991. At this point in time, Dr Waerlop began his post graduate teaching career, 1st in rehabilitation and later in neurology, lecturing throughout the US and Canada.
In late 1996, Dr Ivo relocated to Summit County Colorado, continuing to teach on a post graduate level and began a private practice in Frisco at the CARE Health Group. He began teaching Anatomy and Physiology locally at the Colorado Mountain College, which he continues to do today. In 1999, he relocated to a larger facility in Silverthorne and founded Summit Chiropractic and Rehabilitation, PC, a rehabilitation and neurology referral based practice, with an emphasis on gait and movement analysis.
In 2004, he became interested in acupuncture, largely because his 150 pound German Shepherd (Atlas) was epileptic, and a Veterinary Acupuncturist from Grand Junction (Dr Shalona McFarland) was able to help him control his seizures. Dr Ivo began his studies shortly thereafter and received his acupuncture license in the summer of 2005. He then studied neuromuscular acupuncture under Dr Yun Tao Ma and currently lecture with and is writing an acupuncture book with him.
In August of 2006, Dr John Asthlater joined the practice and the office was moved to our new facility in the Dillon Tech Center, in Dillon. In addition to injury, rehabilitative and preventative care, the new center offers the latest in cutting edge video motion analysis, an orthotic lab, electrodiagnostics, blood glucose and lipid analysis, lactate testing, training programs, expanded hours and many other services.
When Dr Ivo isn’t seeing patients or lectruring, he enjoys spending time tele skiing, hiking and 4 wheeling with his wife, local photographer Lisa Ortiz, Their son Vander and their dog, Pons. His hobbies include reading, music and cooking.
