The Foundation for Chiropractic Progress Congratulates Jerry Rice on his Pro Football Hall of Fame Induction
CARMICHAEL, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–On 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 (HOF). While Rice’s 13 trips to the Pro Bowl and 38 career records helped the San Francisco 49er great gain entry to the HOF, according to the three-time Super Bowl champion, it also takes a chiropractor.
“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”
“Chiropractic care helped me stay healthy and succeed in the league for as long as I did,” explains the legendary wide receiver.
Rice’s first experience with chiropractic care took place during Super Bowl XXIII, where he witnessed first-hand how the conservative treatment helped injured 49er teammates perform, resulting in a win over the Cincinnati Bengals. Since then, Rice has included chiropractic care in his training throughout his 21 seasons in the NFL, in which he was able to amass 22,895 receiving yards and 208 receiving touchdowns.
After his retirement from the NFL in 2005, Rice once again turned to chiropractic, but this time, instead of shaking defensive players and avoiding vicious tackles, he was shaking his hips while competing on the popular TV show, “Dancing with the Stars.”
“’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.”
As a way of giving back to the profession that helped him succeed throughout the years, Rice became a spokesperson for the Foundation for Chiropractic Progress (www.yes2chiropractic.com), a not-for-profit organization dedicated to educating the public of the many benefits associated with chiropractic care. Rice has been sharing his experiences with the hands-on treatment in hopes of spreading the word about the important role chiropractic care can play in people’s lives – no matter what their profession or level of athleticism.
“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,” concludes Rice.
