Chiropractic care to enhance athletic abilities - Murfreesboro, TN

What Professional Athletes Say



Tom Brady, New England Patriots “Chiropractic just makes you feel so much better. When I walk out of the clinic, I feel like I’m about three inches taller and everything’s in place. And as long as I see the chiropractor, I feel like I’m one step ahead of the game.”


Emmit Smith, Dallas Cowboys    “I definitely try to get on a basis where I use Chiropractic at least twice a week. I would say definitely say that it helps me to perform at a higher level”


Chris Carter, Minnesota Vikings “Chiropractic has really helped me to keep my body in line to help my body recover”


Jerry Rice, San Francisco 49ers   “The game of life requires the edge that chiropractic care provides.”



Michael Jordan, Chicago Bulls  “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, New York Knicks  “My shooting has improved because of Chiropractic. I feel more balanced and have more coordination and control. Since I have been under Chiropractic care, I have improved by leaps and bounds”



Tiger Woods, Professional Golfer  “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 Chiropractors for as long as I can remember.  It’s as important to my training as practicing my swing.”


Fred Funk, Professional Golfer  “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…”



Barry Bonds, Home Run Record Holder  “I go to my Chiropractor on a regular basis because I want to prolong my career as long as possible.”  He states, “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.”


Jose Canseco, Professional Baseball Player “I’ve found that it’s a great stress reliever to get adjusted.  It takes away a lot of the tightness in the muscles.”


Wade Boggs, Professional Baseball Player “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.”



Justin Gatlin, 100 and 200 meter Olympic Gold Medalist   “Being a full-time competitor means an increased risk of injury.  At this level of competition, we have to make sure to take care of our entire body, and that includes the recovery of it.  Sports medicine plays a key role in minimizing any damage, so I visit chiropractor Dr. David Pascal on a regular basis.”


Dan O’Brien, Gold Medal Decathlete   “You obviously can’t compete at your fullest if you’re not in alignment.  And your body can’t heal if your back is not in alignment.  It was the holistic idea that I liked about Chiropractic and that is what track and field is about.  Every track and field athlete that I have ever met has seen a Chiropractor at one time or another.  In track and field, it is absolutely essential.  Chiropractic care is one of the things I think that no one has denied or refuted.”


Derek Parra, World Record Holder, 1500m   Parra has said he helps keep his body at its peak performance by receiving regular Chiropractic care.  “I’ve always been a proponent of Chiropractic care.  The problem doesn’t get fixed until I go to a Doctor of Chiropractic.”
