Peoria is Bears Country.
Apologies in advance for the picture of Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers on this blog.
But Rodgers is more than just a Superbowl MVP-winning quarterback. Did you know that he's the son of a chiropractor? Dr. Ed Rodgers, a chiropractor in California, provided chiropractic care for Aaron during infancy, childhood, adolescence, and football greatness. Since my father is also a chiropractor, I can attest to the wonderful benefits that the chiropractic adjustment can give to a growing body.
According to Dr. Rodgers, "The structure of the human body, especially the spine, and its relationship to function can be impacted by the physical nature of accidents, falls, poor posture and injuries. That's why chiropractic care is so valuable for many acute and chronic health problems."
High-level athletes in many sports have long recognized the value of chiropractic. As they strive for peak potential, they are so "in tune" with their own bodies that they appreciate the importance of an unimpaired nervous system, which is essential to maximize reaction speeds, reflex speed, and improve muscular power and control.
Football greats Jerry Rice and Joe Montana have been long-time spokesmen for chiropractic. Former bodybuilder and actor Arnold Schwarzenegger is an active proponent of chiropractic in his state of California. Former athletes like Denver Broncoes Jack Dolbin have pursued chiropractic degree after their athletic careers. Jack Lalanne, the world's first super-athlete with many unbroken and unchallenged athletic records, was a chiropractor. Chiropractors are attached to nearly every major team in every major sport. Even the US Olympic Team medical staff is directed by two chiropractors.
Athletes have long known and acknowledged the importance of chiropractic as valuable for their profession. They have voted with their performances.
