Scott-249x300Dr. Scott Kuper received his Bachelor of Science degree in Athletic Training from Duquesne University, and his Doctorate of Chiropractic from New York Chiropractic College.

Dr. Scott was born and raised in western New York, where he was an avid soccer player. It was during high school that he gained his inspiration to pursue chiropractic as a profession, first as a patient, when a spinal injury had him sidelined. The recovery process first led him to Duquesne University, where he obtained his Bachelors of Science degree in Athletic Training with the goal of helping other sidelined athletes return to play. During his time at Duquesne he also participated in clinical internships at Carnegie Mellon University and LaRoche College. The hands-on clinical experience he gained solidified his belief that proper joint biomechanics and spinal stability are the keys to a healthy active lifestyle at any level.

While continuing his education at New York Chiropractic College he worked as a nationally Certified Athletic Trainer for the school’s recreation department and participated in several clinical outreach programs in the community. As an intern at the Buffalo Veterans Affairs Medical Center, Dr. Kuper had the privilege of serving those who have served our country. Through this program he helped improve the health and livelihood of men and women ranging from WWII veterans to soldiers returning from deployment in Iraq and Afghanistan.

Dr. Scott uses his expertise in treatment of athletes from the collegiate and professional levels to weekend warriors alike. His philosophy for treatment combines the restoration of joint mobility, rehabilitation of muscle and soft tissues, and proper nutritional support to improve the health of his patients. He has proudly been a chiropractor in the Virginia Beach and Norfolk communities since 2008.

Dr. Scott maintained his national certification with the National Athletic Trainers Association through 2013, is a certified Performance Enhancement Specialist with the National Academy of Sports Medicine, and is one of the only local providers using FAKTR soft tissue techniques. He also has enjoyed volunteering as an assistant coach with Landstown High School, participating in many local running events, and playing in recreational soccer leagues here in Virginia Beach.

Dr. Scott and Dr. Amanda were married in October of 2012. They enjoy sharing the same passion and pride for their work, and look forward to continuing to serve the Virginia Beach community together for many years to come.
