Jerry Rice, Pro Football Hall of Fame Inductee, Gives Credit to His Longevity to Chiropractic

     A release on Business News Wire on August 3, 2010 carried a title that read, “The Foundation for Chiropractic Progress Congratulates Jerry Rice on his Pro Football Hall of Fame Induction”. Jerry Rice, a football superstar and longtime user of chiropractic is also a spokesperson for the Foundation for Chiropractic Progress (F4CP).

     The F4CP release noted that, “August 7, 2010, Jerry Rice and six other National Football League (NFL) icons will be honored in Canton, Ohio, as they become the latest members to be inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame.” During his career, Rice made 13 trips to the NFL Pro bowl and holds 38 different NFL records.

     The F4CP release quotes Jerry Rice’s support of chiropractic when he stated, “Chiropractic care helped me stay healthy and succeed in the league for as long as I did.”

     The story reports that Rice’s first experience with chiropractic care took place during Super Bowl XXIII, where he witnessed first-hand how chiropractic care helped his injured 49er teammates perform, resulting in a win over the Cincinnati Bengals. One of these teammates was another long time supporter of chiropractic, Hall of Famer Joe Montana.

     Jerry Rice continued with chiropractic after he left football. He credits chiropractic with his ability to perform on the TV show Dancing With The Stars. Rice was quoted as saying, “‘Dancing with the Stars’ was every bit as exhausting and challenging — though not nearly as brutal — as football,” says Rice. “I had aches and pains that I never had before. Again, chiropractic care made the difference — and kept me dancing and in the competition.”

     New Hall of Famer, Jerry Rice, remains active and summed up his support for chiropractic by saying, “I have been blessed with a long and healthy career as a professional athlete, and as I move forward into the next stage of my life, chiropractic care will continue to be an important part of my game plan.”
