Where did the idea for Resilience Code come from?
Resilience Code is the creation of Dr. Chad J. Prusmack. Through his experience as a nationally renowned neurosurgeon, a former all-American athlete, and team neurosurgeon for the Denver Broncos since 2005, Dr. Prusmack has a unique perspective on health.
Dr. Prusmack asked himself, “What would happen if we applied a data-driven approach led by the best people in medicine, sports, and human performance to accomplish what we’re all looking for – less illness and disease, better physical functionality, and longer, happier, more productive lives?”
Dr. Prusmack has assembled a dream team of like-minded visionaries — physicians, therapists, sports scientists, researchers, performance psychologists, and elite fitness professionals to bring this vision of peak member health and performance to fruition.
The approach starts with testing all the pillars of health and integrating the results are into a tailor-made solution. Says Dr. Prusmack: “Resilience Code will revolutionize health by utilizing testing and evidence to reliably predict and prevent injury and illness, alongside fitness and wellness, such that we rewrite the path of health while writing a prescription for a resilient life.
Rather than following conventional wisdom around surgical preparation and recovery, Dr. Prusmack began to rely on data analytics and peer-reviewed studies to create new protocols. His integrated approach of incorporating performance psychology, biological testing and nutritional oversight dramatically improved outcomes for his patients and shortened their return to life, work or sport. Instead of a passive process, surgery became more like a participatory sport for the patient in which physical and mental preparation is key. The result – enhanced health literacy for the patient and a plan for a happier and healthier life.
This successfully innovative approach led to the actualization of Dr. Prusmack’s vision – a medical, performance, and recovery center called Resilience Code, based in Englewood Colorado. Resilience Code implements a year-round process for every member — surgery patients as well as iCODE, ProCode, and ReCode members.
Using this approach, rather than trial and error, Resilience Code will define the next generation of health and fitness, whereby truly advanced data analytics will yield not only elite-level performance but also injury prevention, functional health, and maximized well-being.
