What does Madonna, Arnold & Tiger have in common?

Published: 11/30/2010 by Dr. Anthony Kell

They all receive frequent chiropractic care.

Here's just couple quotes from these famous people.

Arnold said, “It is truly one of the few professions that really helps people in a straightforward way with no monkey business, like some of the other professions promise to help, but this Chiropractic is the real thing. . ..Chiropractic is about natural, preventive healthcare. . . Whenever I have a problem -- or even if I don't have a problem -- and I go to a Chiropractor, my problems are gone for a long time.”

And Arnold also went on to say, "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."

Tiger Woods said, "Being a chiropractor patient has really helped me immensely. I’ve been going to Chiropractors for as long as I can remember. It’s as important to my training as practicing my swing. 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."

As a former competitive water skier, squash enthusiast and avid golfer I naturally share these sentiments and notice a huge difference in my level of performance, sense of well-being and health.

This week I was fortunate to meet and treat a couple of top notch athletes who are about to compete in the upcoming Laguna, Phuket Ironman triathlon. They shared with me how happy they were to receive chiropractic care here on Island of Phuket. They told me that chiropractic helped to relieve the stress of exercise and any injuries they might incur along the way. They also marveled how chiropractic was able to to improve their performance.

Having had my own fair share of injuries I know far too well how frustrating it is to be sidelined with an injury that could have been easily avoided. It sucks to sit on the bench because your injury is not responding to treatment or popping pain numbing pills that merely cover up the symptoms, deceiving you into actions which could make the injury more serious.

I can’t think of any other healthcare approach that closely relates to the needs of the sports participant. Most sports involve body contact, fast starts and stops, and positioning that places an unusual amount of strain on the back and structural system.

As a Chiropractor, I consider a person as an integrated being, giving special attention to the spine, joints, muscles, tendons, ligaments, and nerves. For example over pronation of the foot, a collapse of inner arch during running or walking can affect not only the joints in the foot but also in the neck and back leading to headaches, neck and low back pain. Chiropractic stresses the importance of keeping all the systems of the body functioning efficiently so the athlete enjoys peak performance, at minimum injury risk, and fast recuperative powers.

Chiropractic is a science and art is based on the premise that good health depends, in part, upon a normally functioning nervous system. When there is interference in the nervous system caused by a misaligned or malfunctioning spine, tissues and organs may not function properly. Detection of these problem areas ("subluxations") and their correction by spinal manipulation will relieve nerve interference and allow the spine and nervous system to return to a healthy state. Correction of the problem and maintaining good health is the goal of Chiropractic.

I encourage all of you who are not already getting regular chiropractic adjustments to do so to stay healthy and pain free.

All the best
