I’ve always used chiropractic as a preventive healthcare method. But, if I had to share just one story of the benefits of chiropractic care, it would be the recovery from a serious bike crash. Going too fast on a winding descent in the mountains of California, I lost control, went off the road and struck a small boulder. The wreck destroyed my bike and bruised my sacrum, leaving me unable to walk without pain, let alone train for a triathlon. Frequent visits to my chiropractor didn’t help my broken bike any, but sure got me feeling much better in a hurry. I was able to race only three weeks after the wreck, and I won a race only six weeks later. – Ric R.
