Last Sunday over 114 million people tuned into watch the SuperBowl. Behind the scenes both teams and coaches had been fine tuning their game plans as they prepared for the biggest game of their lives. As part of the players preparation there were a few Chiropractors who served both the Seattle Seahawks and New England Patriots.
The Professional Football Chiropractic Society (PFCS) has taken pride in announcing that all 32 teams in the National Football League offer their players and personnel chiropractic physician services as part of the triage in managing and preventing injuries.
“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 Baron, D.C.
Attending to the New England Patriots last Sunday was Dr. Mike Miller. During the games, he sees an average of at least 40 players, coaches, and other personnel who are affiliated with the team. I would say just about 90 percent get chiropractic services, because the present coaching staff of the Patriots has almost mandated chiropractic care with the players.
The NFL has just released a statement advocating for all NFL teams as now employing a Chiropractor as part of their medical staff.
