Lance Armstrong

Lance Armstrong has been receiving Chiropractic care since January of 1999. He claims that Chiropractic has helped him keep his body in tact for the harsh demands of the Tour de France. Lance once said that he could not have won without his chiropractor's help.

“The Chiropractor is the most important person on the team staff.” –Lance Armstrong, seven-time Tour de France Winner

 

 


Wade Boggs

"Last year I found my 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." – Wade Boggs, Professional Baseball Player

 

 

 

Barry Bonds

Before his retirement, the San Francisco Giants’ outfielder and one of baseball’s greatest players, Barry Bonds was a strong advocate for Chiropractic care.

“I go to my chiropractor on a regular basis, because I want to prolong my career as long as possible. I see him about once a week, in between my training (sessions). By getting an adjustment once a week from him, I feel I can sustain my career a lot longer." – Barry Bonds, Home Run Record Holder

Barry Bonds retired in 2007, marking his 21st year in baseball.

 

 


Barbara Bunkowsky

"I have found that chiropractic keeps me flexible and pain-free so that I can perform at my highest level. The benefits of chiropractic have improved my golf swing, putting less stress and strain on my body and allowing me to be a more productive golfer. I believe it also helps prevent other associated injuries that are very common on the LPGA tour.” – Barbara Bunkowsky, LPGA Tour Professional

 

 


Jose Conseco

"I've found that it's a great stress reliever to get adjusted. It takes away a lot of the tightness in the muscles." – Jose Conseco, Professional Baseball Player

 

 

 

Roger Craig

"Do I believe in Chiropractic? Let me answer it this way. I've sent over 30 of my teammates, including All-Pro quarterback Joe Montana to the Chiropractor, and because of Chiropractic, I never missed a game in 8 years!" – Roger Craig, All Pro Running Back

 

 


Irving Fryer

"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." – Irving Fryar, former NFL Wide-Receiver

 

 


Fred Funk

"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..." – Fred Funk, Professional Golfer

 

 

 

 


Evander Holyfield

"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." –Evander Holyfield, former Heavyweight Champion

 

 


Joe Montana

"I've been seeing a Chiropractor and he's really been helping me out a lot. Chiropractic has been a big part of my game. Chiropractic care works for me." – Joe Montana, four Superbowl rings, three MVPs, 1990 Player of the Year and spokesperson for Chiropractic in California

Ryne Sandberg

Professional Baseball All-star Ryne Sandberg’s wife Cindy explained, "He's had some awesome games after getting an adjustment. He was frequently adjusted before games."

 

 


Arnold Schwarzenegger

"I am very fortunate to have, so to speak, my in-house chiropractor, Dr. Franco Colombu, as my own personal chiropractor. 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. That's why I always will be traveling...all over the world, talking highly about the profession of chiropractic. You chiropractic doctors are really miracle workers."

"(Back in the 1970s) Franco would go very intensely to Chiropractic College every day. He worked on me all the time. During the course of his education he got incredibly good with both the theoretical and the practical (aspects of adjusting) ... every time I had an injury, I could call Franco ... I would get an adjustment, three or four, and the problem would be gone. So you know, when you see that happening in your own body, that with chiropractic you will be 100 percent, it's just fantastic.” – 

Arnold Schwarzenegger, bodybuilder, actor and Governor of California

 

 


Emmitt Smith

"Playing in a football game is like being in 30-40 car accidents."

An article in the Fort Worth Star-Telegram explains it all started after the 1994 season when Smith endured a lot of hamstring problems and he began to ask himself some tough questions. "Do I need to get more rest? Do I need to eat better? Do I need a little more training? How can I take care of my body better? Do I need to find a chiropractor? It was time for me to invest in me," Smith said. "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 remember somebody telling me that what I put myself in during the games is like having a car wreck every Sunday. It's against the norm. You can find yourself in awkward positions. That stuff takes its toll. But if you take advantage of the health care, balance your body back out, put it back where it's supposed to be, you function better, and you recover faster." – Emmitt Smith, NFL Rushing

John Stockton

"It's been great for me, and for my family." – John Stockton, NBA Basketball Player

 


Heather Watts

"Medical doctors can be helpful for some things, but generally when it comes to dance injuries, they don't really have a therapy program for you where they actually fix anything...Chiropractors are great for dancers because they work on you—you can see the results. Chiropractic is a more personal kind of treatment, more immediate." – Heather Watts, Prima Ballerina


Gerald Wilkins

"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." – Gerald Wilkins, Professional Baseball Player

 


Tiger Woods

"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 the chiropractor for as long as I remember. It's as important to my game as practicing my swing!" – Tiger Woods, Professional Golfer

When Tiger was 17 in 1995, he appeared on the Chiropractic Centennial Foundation’s (CCF) Tournament of Roses Parade Float, advocating Chiropractic.
