Andrew Klein, the official chiropractor for the 2000
U.S. Olympic medical
staff, identified a key reason why athletes have taken
to chiropractic: it keeps them in top shape—without
the use of drugs. “Athletes have come to rely on manual
therapy because the list of banned substances [for
the Olympics] is so long, and also because they feel
it enhances their performance."

recent study published in the March/April 2002 issue
of the Journal of Manipulative and Physiological Therapeutics,
(JMPT) examined the usage of chiropractic care by
National Football League teams throughout the US.
The Journal article reported on the results of a survey
of NFL trainers on their usage and referral to chiropractic
care. Participants of the survey were head athletic
trainers of the 36 National Football League teams.
They were all men,
and all had at least 17 years of experience and had
served with their present
team in their current position for a minimum of 1
The results of the survey showed that 45% percent
of the trainers themselves have been treated by a
chiropractor. Presently 31% of NFL teams use chiropractors
in an official capacity as part of their staffs. However,
though not necessarily on the staff of the NFL team
a full 77% of the trainers
have referred to a chiropractor for evaluation or
treatment. Probably the most telling result of the
survey is that 100% of trainers agree that some players
use chiropractic care without referral from team medical
In addition to NFL players, many athletes from many
sports depend on
chiropractic care. One such athlete is John Stockton,
a professional basketball player and future hall of
famer. In an April 2, 2002 article that appeared in
the Toronto Star, writer Doug Smith asks and answers
the question concerning John Stockton's longevity,
"What is the secret to John Stockton's continued
on the NBA basketball court at age 40? A Good Chiropractor."
When asked to explain his usage of chiropractic John's
response was, "I'm not a good enough expert on
what that (chiropractic) entails, but it's not just
adjustments, it's balancing muscles and overall health."
John then added, "it's been great for me, and
for my family."
