Chiropractic is Music to the Ears of Legends
By Sara Butler
Have you ever seen pictures of famous movie stars or rockers doing everyday things like picking up after their dog or shopping for groceries? What is that about? Of course, it can be easy to put famous people on a pedestal, but at the end of the day, they’re just ordinary people who do ordinary things with extraordinary sums of money in their bank account.
Take, for example, chiropractic care. You go to the chiropractor, I go to the chiropractor – the American Chiropractic Association says that 30 million other people join us at the chiropractor every year! I guess that just goes to show how many normal people can benefit from chiropractic care – and rock stars are no different.
In honor of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction ceremonies this month, here are some of the biggest fans of chiropractic in the music industry today. I’m sure all that hard living on cramped tour buses can really take its toll!
The Rolling Stones
Yep, old Mick and company have been known to get adjustments before they take the stage. Maybe that’s how they’ve managed to stay on a continuous tour for the past 87 or so years. It’s either chiropractic or some crazy voodoo magic (they do have sympathy for the devil). I’m more inclined to think it’s chiropractic since it has been found to help keep people healthy as they (and their bodies) get older. You have to hand it to the Stones – they’ve got stamina!
Forever in … chiropractic? Neil Diamond is an oldie, but a goodie. His rousing anthem “Coming to America” sure does get the party started. When he and Barbra Streisand crooned about not getting flowers anymore, maybe Neil was having trouble bending over to pick the flowers in the garden. With the help of chiropractic, his spine and the rest of him are probably as flexible as ever!
Is there anybody out there? Yes, Pink – we’re here! Pink Floyd has been known to call on local chiropractors at the last minute before their shows. Lucky for them, The Joint is open evenings and weekends and has over 370 locations nationwide. No one wants to see Pink throwing out their backs as they put another brick in the wall, after all.
Santana is arguably one of the best rock guitarists out there, but all those jam sessions can have an impact. Carlos is no stranger to repetitive strain injuries from playing the guitar, a condition that can cause discomfort and pain in any part of the body. In his case, in the shoulders, hands, elbows, wrists, and fingers from the repetitive motions of guitar playing. Anyone is really at risk for this, not just legendary rockers. So it’s a good thing chiropractic care is here to help.
Dolly rocks in my book. She has famously declared that she doesn’t have time to get old, and I think she has stood up pretty well to the effects of time! Now in her 70s and still coping with an unusual center of gravity, Dolly receives regular chiropractic adjustments before her shows, adjustments that help her to feel better as she works way more than just a regular “9 to 5.”
