“I didn’t know how much I could improve until I started seeing a chiropractor. Since I’ve been in chiropractic, I’ve improved by leaps and bounds both mentally and physically.”
Michael Jordan is an extremely gifted basketball player. He has won two Olympic gold medals, his team has won the NBA championship six times, and he is in the Basketball Hall of Fame. While he has so many accomplishments under his belt, Jordan is always looking for ways to continue to improve. As stated above in his quote, Jordan has been increasing his performance with the help of chiropractic care.
“Bodybuilders and fitness people have been using, very extensively, chiropractors in order to stay healthy and fit. Whenever I had a little problem with my body, I always ran to one of my dear friends [Franco Columbo, D.C], he was always right there with adjustments. This is how I found out the best way of going, is to use chiropractors, not only after injuries, but also before injury. I depend on chiropractic and so does my whole family. That’s what chiropractors do, take care of people like no other kind of healer.
“I am very fortunate to have, so-to-speak, my in-house chiropractor, Dr. Franco Colombu, as my own personal chiropractor. So, I visit Franco regularly, and he comes over to my house. He adjusts my wife, my kids, me, everybody gets an adjustment. And we feel always great when Franco leaves. Even when I have athletic injuries he’s always there for me, and helps me. So it’s really terrific, and I know that first hand. That’s why I always will be traveling around, all over the world, talking highly about the profession of chiropractic. You chiropractic doctors are really miracle workers, and that’s why it’s really great to have you here, part of the Arnold Classic. Because, like I said, the Arnold Classic and Fitness Weekend are about health and about fitness and preventive care.”
Who doesn’t know and love Arnold Schwarzenegger? While we probably know him best in ‘Terminator” (Hasta la vista, baby), Schwarzenegger was also a bodybuilder and he was the governor of California! While he began seeing his chiropractor during body building, he uses it to further his personal life as well. Schwarzenegger is a huge advocate for chiropractic care and he believes having a chiropractor is a necessity in life.
“Chiropractic just makes you feel so much better. When I walk out of the clinic, I feel like I’m about three inches taller and everything’s in place. And as long as I see the chiropractor, I feel like I’m one step ahead of the game.”
Tom Brady is definitely a football force to be reckoned with. He has FIVE Super Bowl wins, FOUR Super Bowl MVP awards, and he was named Sport’s Illustrated’s Sportsman of the Year. Did I mention he is 40 years old? Which is insane for the NFL. As most athletes do, Tom Brady regularly uses a chiropractor to improve his performance and to keep getting those Super Bowl wins.
“Thank God I have a great chiropractor. I wish I’d never introduced him to Madonna and Janet and Tina. Now I have to share him”
Cher needs no introduction, but we will anyway! Cher is 72 years old and still out there performing and wowing us all. Cher has won an Academy Award, an Emmy, three Golden Globe Awards, and the Best Actress Award at the Cannes Film Festival. So how is Cher out here still performing at 72 years old? She has her own personal chiropractor.
“Aahh chiropractor.. Hurts so good 🙂 you lug these around and see if your back don’t hurt”

“Chiropractors really are life savers! I didn’t really believe in them before but now I’m obsessed.”
Love or hate her, we all know Kim Kardashian. Kim is a big advocator for chiropractic care. She used chiropractic care for her pregnancies and just for life in general. On an episode of Keeping up with the Kardashians, Kim takes sister Khloe and brother Rob to the chiropractor with her so that they can speak with him, so that they too will decide to see one. Kim is so thankful for her chiropractor that she gifted him her Teen Choice Award surfboard as a gift, writing “Dr. Jochen, I don’t know how I would survive without you! Xo – Kim Kardashian”
“Being a chiropractic patient has really helped me a lot. When I was in a growth spurt, my back became very sore, and I was weak. My chiropractor really helped me. Not only did he adjust my spine, he also gave me strengthening exercises to do. If you are tall and gangly like I am, or play sports, I would recommend chiropractic. I’ve been going to chiropractors for as long as I can remember. It’s as important to my training as practicing my swing.”
Tiger Woods is a golf legend. He was the youngest to ever win all four professional major championships, he has been the PGA Player of the Year 11 times, Vardon Trophy winner 9 times, and Byron Nelson Award 9 times, to name a few. As stated in Wood’s testimony above, he uses chiropractic care for back pain and weakness, along with improving his performance in golf.
“I found a chiropractor that’s really good in balancing out my body to make sure my hips are rotated right, and my body is functioning properly. I remember somebody telling me that what I put myself in during the games is like having a car wreck every Sunday. It’s against the norm. You can find yourself in awkward positions. That stuff takes its toll. But if you take advantage of the health care, balance your body back out, put it back where it’s supposed to be, you function better, and you recover faster.”
Emmit Smith was a Dallas Cowboys running back. While football is a rough sport and most players sustain a large number of injuries, Smith is one of those players who has avoided many injuries and has been a long-time player in the NFL. After not taking care of his body for so long, he finally decided to seek out help. He was introduced to Rob Parker, DC, who got him set up on a chiropractic plan. Smith owes a lot of his success to his chiropractic care, which he regularly receives.
“I got a chiropractor to come along to the [Patriot] shoot, because they can actually stick you back together within 15 minutes. He spent a week and worked on the entire crew. All the stunt guys were like, ‘Oh, fix my disc.’ The guy’s amazing.”
Mel Gibson is an actor and filmmaker. After his role in many movies, especially involving regular stunts, these took a toll on Gibson’s body. He seeks regular chiropractic care to help him, especially as he is now 63 years old.
“It’s the most amazing thing that has ever happened to me!” He told the audience that after suffering from pain 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year, he experienced relief from pain with his first chiropractic adjustment. “There’s not a person who knows me who will not confirm this. I am walking differently, my pain is less, and I’ve already regained strength in my left leg.”
Montel Williams is the TV host of the Montel Williams Show and an author. Williams has been struggling with Multiple Sclerosis.
