Folsom Chiropractor Presents Superbowl and Chiropractic

by James Barger on 2012/02/08

Folsom, CA-February 3, 2012 — New England Patriots and New York Giants are preparing to play the biggest game of the year for football fans — The XLVI Super Bowl in Indianapolis, Indiana. And the Foundation for Chiropractic Progress (a not-for-profit organization dedicated to increasing the
public’s understanding of the value of Chiropractic care) shows Chiropractic has a role with both teams in maximizing functionality, endurance and conditioning through their staff of Chiropractic doctors. Dr. Michael Miller of the Patriots and Dr. Robert DeStefano of the Giants state that chiropractic is essential to reducing the effect of sudden impact injuries, as well as enhancing physical ability and joint mobility while it also improves structural balance which is critical to preventing many injuries.

“Professional athletes rely greatly on the coordinated efforts of the entire healthcare team, comprised of athletic trainers, rehabilitation specialists, physical therapists, orthopedists and chiropractors,” says Dr. DeStefano. “With the exception of 24/7 availability, preparing for the Super Bowl is no different than the regular season. As injuries present themselves, we work systematically
to provide the athlete with the care needed. In the end, we hope for a quick recovery and high-level performance.”

Dr. Miller states, “ Most of our players will get adjusted prior to games to adequately prepare their bodies for battle. Several times during the playoffs, incidents occurred that required chiropractic care and, subsequent to sideline treatment, players were able to return to action the following play. We expect to have the same efficiency going into and during the Super Bowl.” Dr. Miller also adds that the Patriots dedicated the season and championship victories of Myra Kraft, late wife of team owner Robert Kraft.

Chiropractic care is valued by both teams as a constructive healthcare element. Chiropractic is mostly employed to take care of neuromusculoskeletal injuries, including sprains and strains that contribute to neck and low back pain, hamstring and quadriceps strains and specific whiplash injuries. In addition, Chiropractic treats other extremities including TMJ (temporomandibular joint
dysfunction), carpal (wrist) and tarsal (ankle/foot) problems, and shoulder, elbow, hip and knee troubles.

Dr. Miller, who has been with the Patriots over 30 years, acknowledges the players appreciate the services he offers, and he is excited to be in the Super Bowl again. “As we get closer, I’m reminded of a mantra fropm head coach Bill Belichick who says: ‘Do your job. If done will, it will reap rewards.’
I wish both teams health through this next game and may the best team WIN!”
