Course Instructor

Tim Brown, DC Tim Brown, DC

Dr. Tim Brown is one of the foremost experts and leading innovators in the world of sports medicine, with more than 45 years of experience working with some of the world’s most recognizable athletes. As a former college football player, pro beach volleyball player, and skilled surfer/snowboarder, Dr. Brown knows firsthand about the frustration of injury, pain management, the current reactive instead of proactive injury cycle environment and the painstaking process of rehab and recovery. In the early 1980s, while working as the Original Medical Director for the AVP (Association of Volleyball Professionals), Dr. Brown revolutionized the world of sports taping and soft tissue treatment with his innovative SPRT (Specific Proprioceptive Response Technique) approach and was arguably one of the first to utilize Kinesiology tape on elite athletes for functional, structural, and neuro-muscular issues. SPRT helps stimulate the body’s natural healing process to create alignment, mobility, proprioception and control through comfortable, specific soft tissue techniques and by aligning, compressing and supporting soft tissue structures in the direction of relief and correction though taping applications. In the 2008 Beijing Olympics, professional beach volleyball player Kerri Walsh attracted a lot of attention when she won a gold medal while wearing a version of SPRT for an injured shoulder. During that time, Dr. Brown had moved on from the AVP and was working and traveling with the ASP (Association of Surfing Professionals- currently the World Surf league) World Tour, as his SPRT soft tissue treatment and taping systems continued to gain recognition with athletes around the world. After decades working with countless elite and professional athletes, Dr. Brown created the latest evolution in functional performance apparel: IntelliSkin. Initially designed as a posture correction shirt to wear during workouts, or throughout the day, IntelliSkin is now central to performance optimization, pain relief, and rehabilitation protocols for experts everywhere. Dr Brown currently serves as the Co-Medical Director for the WSL, while being a Head Sports Medicine and Performance Consultant for both Hurley and RedBull High Performance athletes.
