Every NFL team provides the care of a doctor of chiropractic for its players. "Prior to game time, and especially after the game, receiving chiropractic adjustments can enhance flexibility, range of motion, structural alignment and bio-mechanics, ensuring that the athlete’s body will recover quickly and function at its highest possible level" says Dr. Sol Cogan, Detroit Lions Team Chiropractor and President of the Pro Football Chiropractic Society.

"I am living and breathing proof that chiropractic care will exponentially improve the overall health of our military and all Americans," concluded Retired U.S. Army Brigadier General Rebecca Halstead. "I look forward to continuing my relationship with the Foundation and safeguarding the chiropractic profession as our country continues to improve its health care system."

"Taking proper preventative measures, such as chiropractic care and appropriate sports-specific exercises, will go a long way in reducing the risks of injury," spoke Jay Greenstein, D.C., CEO, Sport & Spine Rehab and Washington Redskin Cheerleaders Team Chiropractor.

"The robust need for chiropractic care in the NFL has been deeply driven by the players’ desire for peak physical conditioning and not simply for injuries," states Spencer H. Baron, D.C., DACBSP, immediate past President of the PFCS and Miami Dolphins team chiropractor for the past 14 years. "From the earliest years of full contact football, their bodies are subject to structural stress that doctors of chiropractic (DCs) are specially trained to care for. Many DCs who provide their services to professional athletes travel with their respective teams throughout the season, treating players up until game time, during the game and sometimes immediately following."

According to Saints wide receiver, Marques Colston, who had seven catches for 83 yards in Super Bowl XLIV, "I always see Dr. Rob for chiropractic care on game day to get my body balanced, flexible and ready for action. I see him several times a week for rehab and to recover faster from the last game."

"Not only did my chiropractor get me back on the field, but he helped me to stay on the field. My body just feels much better overall because of the care I’ve gotten," quotes Saints wide receiver, Lance Moore.

"I did a lot of things to stay in the game, but regular visits to my chiropractor made all the difference," spoke Jerry Rice, legendary NFL player and Spokesperson for the Foundation for Chiropractic Progress.

"Patients of all ages are learning to appreciate the clinical skills of a chiropractor for conditions including headaches, neck and back pain and other health issues that are related to the spine and influenced by injuries and posture," says Jack Dolbin, D.C. and former starting wide receiver for the Denver Broncos in Super Bowl XII.

"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," says Dr. Ed Rodgers, Dad of championship Green Bay Packers’ winning quarterback Aaron Rodgers. "That's why chiropractic care is so valuable for many acute and chronic health problems."
