With Super bowl 2017 fast approaching this is an ideal time to discuss the role of chiropractic in many elite athletes arsenal. Jerry Rice is one well know proponent of chiropractic care. Having helped lead the San Francisco 49ers to three Super Bowl Championships between 1985 and 2000, he is quoted as saying “chiropractic care was key to keeping me in the game.” In 2006 Rice was one of the competitors on the show Dancing with the Stars. After this experience Rice was quoted as saying “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.”
Check out several quotes from other elite athletes regarding their experiences with Chiropractic care.
“The game of life requires the edge that chiropractic care provides.”
– Jerry Rice
“Bodybuilders and fitness people have been using chiropractic very extensively in order to stay healthy and fit. I found it was better to go to a chiropractor before you get injured. We are a perfect team – the world of fitness and the world of chiropractors.”
“I have to have an adjustment before I go into the ring. I found that going to a chiropractor three times a week helps my performance. The majority of boxers go to get that edge.”
“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.”
– Joe Montana
“I go to see Dr. Bill (Chiropractor) when I get bent out of shape on Sundays. Playing in a football game is like being in 30-40 car accidents.”
– Emmitt Smith
“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 a chiropractor for as long as I can remember. It’s as important to my training as practicing my swing.”
– Tiger Woods
“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 me. So many guys on the tour wanted chiropractic care that the tour had to supply a regular chiropractor that travels with us two weeks out of the month!”
“I was able to keep the streak of 243 straight games in 16 seasons in the NFL. I was so amazed at what Dr. Buhler (Chiropractor) was able to do with my body and well-being that I recommended him to the Broncos, Raiders and to many high level multi-million dollar athletes.”
-4-time Super Bowl champion, Bill Romanowski
