Children’s Star Touts Chiropractic Care

Anthony Field might be better known as the Blue Wiggle from the popular children’s band/TV show The Wiggles. As co-founder, Field’s passion for children has shone through and resulted in global recognition, and happy kids and parents everywhere. But while The Wiggles are known for their upbeat tunes and dances, there was a time when Field struggled to contribute the joy he had once embodied so well.

Depression Hurts

Field went into a difficult depression during his career, accompanied by chronic pain. His back and neck plagued him with discomfort, and he also experienced problems with his digestion system. He was clinically diagnosed, and fought to find a real life-changing solution. Debilitating physical symptoms like back pain can lead to psychological pain, such as depression.  When our activities of daily living are affected by pain, it can affect our emotions negatively.

Along Came Chiropractic

In his search for change and progress, Mr. Blue Wiggle found chiropractic and attributes his recovery to the doctor who treated him. He claims that the results and relief he experienced because of chiropractic intervention “saved” his career.  Receiving chiropractic treatment helped Field return to his work, and his daily life by treating his overall health.

Spreading the Word

Today, Field is taking the time to share his experience with the masses. He has written a book detailing his struggles with weight, food, chronic pain, and the chiropractor who fixed it all in a work entitled, How I Got My Wiggle Back. Kent S. Greenawalt, chairman of the not-for-profit Foundation for Chiropractic Progress, acknowledged Field’s endeavor, calling it “inspirational."  By sharing his personal experience and real, life-changing process, Field’s book will shed light on chiropractic’s place in overall health management and restoration.
