LEXINGTON, Ky. (Dec. 5, 2017) – Tony Delk, MVP of the 1996 National Championship Game, unveiled plans to open an IMAC Regeneration Center in Lexington, Kentucky, in the spring of 2018. This partnership follows the IMAC partnerships with Ozzie Smith in St. Louis, and David Price in Nashville.
The Tony Delk IMAC Regeneration Center will specialize in treating degenerative health conditions including arthritis, herniated and bulging discs and knee pain, as well as acute sports injuries such as a torn meniscus, tendonitis, and rotator cuff injuries. Treatment protocols are customized by a team of medical doctors, nurse practitioners, chiropractors and physical therapists designed to heal damaged tissue without surgery or prescription pain medication. For people facing surgery, the combination of specialists provide a second opinion using conservative treatment protocols to avoid surgery and downtime.
“My decision to join IMAC Regeneration Centers was a result of time I spent with IMAC founder Dr. Matt Wallis. He not only told me of the tremendous work they are doing to provide new, effective options for pain and injury, but he also took me to Ozzie and David’s clinics and I saw for myself how well patients were taken care of and how dramatically they were improving,” said Delk. “I personally understand how important it is to get back in the game and back to work. Time off means you can lose your spot, your opportunity, and you are forgotten about. My goal in partnering with IMAC is to help the people of Lexington overcome challenges and maintain their quality of life without surgery or taking prescription painkillers. You only get one body so you must take care of it.”
IMAC Regeneration Centers was recently named one of the “50 Smartest Companies of 2017” by The Silicon ReviewMagazine. This announcement followed just two months after INC. magazine listed IMAC Regeneration Centers as one of the “Fastest Growing Companies in America” in their prestigious INC. 5000 publication. Recognized for its significant contribution in the fight against the current opioid epidemic in America, IMAC’s focus on preventing the potential for addiction through its regenerative based therapies has captured the attention of patients throughout the United States.
IMAC Founder Dr. Matt Wallis, noted, “Tony is such a compassionate, caring person who is willing to share his talent and experience to make not only Lexington, but the world, a better place. That is exactly why we want our Lexington clinic to be called the Tony Delk IMAC Regeneration Center.” Jeff Ervin, chief executive officer at IMAC Regeneration Centers added, “Tony’s passion for life aligns perfectly with IMAC and we are excited to have him join the team for our Lexington expansion.”
Delk, a former Kentucky All-American and member of the school’s Athletics Hall of Fame, helped UK win the 1996 NCAA title before beginning a decade-long career in the NBA. Currently, Delk is involved in his private labeled wine, Lorenz00’s Reserve, and he has a new book chronicling his road to the NBA arriving on bookshelves this spring.
