I’m Dr. Sloan Beard, Certified Chiropractic Sports Physician and retired collegiate gymnast. I practice out of my home clinic, The F.A.R.M. alongside my business partner and husband, Dr. Beau Beard (you’ll be hearing some snippets from him today, too!).
I started in gymnastics before I turned 3. I loved it then, love it still today, and couldn’t imagine my life without it. Like so many gymnasts (like... nearly all of them!) I faced debilitating lower back pain from countless extensions and bounding and landing during my young competitive years. I remember the pain was so overwhelming that multiple doctors told me it was time to leave my sport behind, for good. You’ll understand what I mean when I say that that wasn’t an option!
I eventually found myself in the office of a chiropractor who encouraged me to compete, not quit. With his help I was able to overcome the pain I was facing in that moment and have longevity in my career. As I mentioned, thanks to his care I went on through the JO program and competed in the collegiate arena.
After college I was afraid I was leaving the sport for good. Until, one day, a gymnast walked through the door at my clinic. It was then that I realized that I had the knowledge to impact young athletes in the same way I had been impacted during my career. From that point forward I’ve dedicated my professional career to helping gymnasts overcome pain and see success and longevity as well.
I treat gymnasts on a daily basis in my clinic, but it didn’t take long for me to realize that I wanted to be able to help as many gymnasts as I could across the nation. And so, Gymnast Fix was born. Gymnast Fix is a 100% online program that utilizes my proven system of MEDS (mobility, exercises, drills and stretches) in a 6 or 10 week course designed specifically for competitive gymnasts. To learn more see my website: www.gymnastfix.com.

Again, thank you so much for watching. Be sure to catch the part at the end for an extra video with my drills you can start using in your gym to strengthen the most neglected muscle in gymnastics!!

What you saw today is just a small fraction of what I offer in my online program. Breathing is the foundation of everything I do, but in my courses we dive head first into my full system of practice. I call these my MEDS, or mobilizations, exercises, drills and stretches.
As a way to say THANK YOU to the gyms who have supported my practice, I’ve created an exclusive discount available only to programs purchased through gyms. Normally, a gymnast has to go to my website individually and purchase a program at full price. But, if a gym wants to purchase a license for 10 athletes or more, I’m offering a discount of 20% (or as great as 30%, depending on size of gym) plus the flexibility to make very small payments for each gymnast over time.
This system has worked great! It allows entire teams to participate and benefit together from the program with very little cost to their parents each month. If your gym is interested in learning more, contact me here:
