Longtime supporter of Dodge City Community College athletics Dr. Jammie Phillips, of Phillips Chiropractic and Physical Therapy Center, has reached a partnership with the college to improve the quality of care for student-athletes.

According to DCCC athletic director Jacob Ripple, Phillips and Jeremy Luthi will each spend one day a week in the athletic training room to consult on athletes at the college under the new agreement.

Phillips and Luthi will work in conjunction with the certified athletic trainers at the college and help provide a comprehensive evaluation and recovery program for athletes who might suffer an injury.

"I cannot thank Dr. Phillips enough for what he does for our athletic department," Ripple said in a news release. "He has not only provided some equipment for our athletic training room that has helped us with the appearance and functionality of the room, but now he is also helping ensure that our standard of care for our athletes is at a high level."

The equipment was donated by Phillips a little over a year ago.

Phillips, Luthi and their staff will also be at a majority of the home events for Conquistador Athletics to provide an immediate eye on some injuries. Any injuries that may require more rehabilitation will be sent to the P.T. Works office, where Phillips is also the owner, for further care.

"This will allow for the athletes to be treated quickly and hopefully return to competition as soon as safely possible," Ripple said.
