Elite Athletes Talk About the Benefits of Chiropractic

19 Feb

Arnold Schwarzenegger Bodybuilder, Actor, Governor

“Everyone needs a chiropractor and Chiropractic must be seen as required, not an alternative. Chiropractic has had a very positive impact on my life and the life of my family. We’ve got to let the people know that there is a necessity, it’s not even an option, it’s a necessity to have a Chiropractor. As much as it is a necessity to have a dentist, you should have a chiropractor for the family.”

“I am very fortunate to have, so-to-speak, my in-house chiropractor, Dr. Franco Columbu, as my own personal chiropractor. So, I visit Franco regularly, and he comes over to my house. He adjusts my wife, my kids, me, everybody gets an adjustment. And we feel always great when Franco leaves. Even when I have athletic injuries he’s always there for me, and helps me. So it’s really terrific, and I know that first hand. That’s why I always will be traveling around, all over the world, talking highly about the profession of chiropractic. You chiropractic doctors are really miracle workers, and that’s why it’s really great to have you here, part of the Arnold Classic. Because, like I said, the Arnold Classic and Fitness Weekend are about health and about fitness and preventive care.”

Tom Brady NFL Champion

“Chiropractic just makes you feel so much better. When I walk out of the clinic, I feel like I’m about three inches taller and everything’s in place. And as long as I see the chiropractor, I feel like I’m one step ahead of the game.”

Joe Montana NFL Champion

“I’ve been seeing a chiropractor and he’s really been helping me out a lot. Chiropractic’s been a big part of my game.”

Tiger Woods PGA Champion

“Being a Chiropractic patient has really helped me immensely…lifting weights and seeing a Chiropractor on a regular basis has made me a better golfer. I’ve been going to Chiropractors for as long as I can remember. It’s as important to my training as practicing my swing.”

Michael Jordan NBA Legend

“I didn’t know how much I could improve until I started seeing a chiropractor. Since I’ve been in chiropractic, I’ve improved by leaps and bounds, both mentally and physically.”

Sarah Harding Ms. Fitness USA

“Basically, I’ve always believed in chiropractic care. My parents introduced my brothers and myself to chiropractic care when we were very young and it’s been an instrumental part of my life. I believe that it allowed me to do gymnastics when I was very little and allowed me to stay in sports and lead a very active lifestyle. I think it’s natural to have aches and pains when you bend your body in directions it wasn’t necessarily meant to [be bent in], so it makes sense to go to a chiropractor to get my body back in alignment. Ever since I can remember, I’ve gone to a chiropractor.

Wade Boggs MLB Champion

“Last year I found Dr. Newman (chiropractor), and I have been seeing him ever since. I have been pain-free and feeling terrific. I swear by it. Now, it is just maintenance and keeping in line so the nerves don’t touch.”

Evander Holyfield World Heavyweight Boxing Champion

“I have to have an adjustment before I go into the ring. I do believe in chiropractic. I found that going to a chiropractor three times a week helps my performance. The majority of boxers go to get that edge.”

Jerry Rice NFL Champion

“Ever since then, I’ve had the benefit of chiropractic care,” says Rice, a 13-time Pro Bowl football player, with 38 career records… “Dancing with the Stars was every bit as exhausting and challenging-though not nearly as brutal-as football,” he says. “It required many hours of practice. I had aches and pains that I never had before. Again, chiropractic care made the difference-and kept me dancing and in the competition.”

Christie Brinkley Super Model

“Chiropractic makes me feel a few inches taller each time I come out.”

Emmit Smith NFL Champion

“Deep-tissue massage and chiropractic, are now common treatments around the league. I started doing this about four or five years ago. I believe that what I’m doing is what helps me go on. I think Warren Moon, ( Seattle ‘s 41 year old quarter back) does the same thing. So I’ve become a big believer in servicing my body and making sure it is lined up properly and functioning the way it is supposed to on Sunday. I go see my chiropractor when I get bent out of shape on Sundays. Playing in a football game is like being in 30-40 car accidents.” Smith credits his chiropractic doctor with helping to supply the longevity that allowed him to achieve his records.”

“I found a specialist that’s really good in balancing out my body to make sure my hips are rotated right, and my body is functioning properly. I definitely try to get on a basis where I use Chiropractic at least twice a week. I would say definitely say that it helps me to perform at a higher level”

Fred Funk PGA Tour Professional

“I do believe chiropractic has really benefited my game. Over the last three years, I feel I have become more exposed to, and knowledgeable about, the benefits of chiropractic for me and my game. I realize how your body can get out of balance, and chiropractic care helps…..”

Irving Fryar NFL Wide Reciever

” I definitely believe that chiropractic care has attributed to my fitness. I don’t think I could maintain my level of play without chiropractic. When I go to Dr. Napoli for an adjustment I immediately feel better.”

Dan O’Brien Olympic Decathlon Gold Medalist

“You obviously can’t compete at your fullest if you’re not in alignment. And your body can’t heal if your back is not in alignment. It was the holistic idea that I liked about chiropractic and that is what track and field is about. Every track and field athlete that that I have ever met has seen a chiropractor at one time or another. In track and field, it is absolutely essential. Chiropractic care is one of the things I think that no one has denied or refuted.”

Merle Haggard Country Singer

“When a problem occurs… I want to see about getting it taken care of, and chiropractic helps.”

Joe Sakic NHL Hall of Fame

“I see the chiropractor on a regular basis. I find that after my treatments I have better flexibility and improved range of motion. I recover quicker from injuries. I have more “jump” in my game and it improves my performance.”

Derek Parra Olympic Gold Medalist  Men’s 1500 meters

“I probably wouldn’t even be here now if it weren’t for chiropractic.”
