“I see chiropractic as having two functions from my perspective.  It helps our athletes return to competition faster if they have sustained some injuries and secondly, it seems to be preventative, in the sense that it keeps our athletes more mobile and flexible and feeling better.” – Mike Gentry, Associate Director of Athletics for Athletic Performance at Virginia Tech

“After getting hit so hard from behind, the symptoms from the concussion were frustrating.  Along with treatment, Chiropractic, relieved the tension around my neck and head. The ache eased so I could think better and was more comfortable, and within enough time to pass the tests and lead the team to a win the following weekend.” – Matt Moore, Quarterback, Miami Dolphins


“The average pro football chiropractor renders 30 to 50 treatments per week during the season. With the in-season (game-playing) duration lasting 16 weeks (not including quarterback camp, mini-camp, and pre- and post-season), 34 chiropractors conservatively give 16,320 to 27,200 adjustments to America’s superstars in just 120 days.” – PFL, Professional Football Chiropractic
