January 18, 2010 — Former NFL wide-receiver Jerry Rice and veteran sportscaster Linda Cohn, traveled to Parker Seminars in Las Vegas Jan 14-17, to encourage chiropractors and their assistants to continue delivering natural, quality healthcare to patients around the globe.
Both Rice and Cohn are spokespeople for the Foundation for Chiropractic Progress (F4CP).
Rice credits his success on the field largely in part to chiropractic care. “If I had everything in alignment, I knew I could play my best football,” said Rice. His training routine included twice-weekly chiropractic adjustments, which helped his body recover from all the hard hits and countless tackles.
Because Rice firmly believed in the benefits of chiropractic, his teammates began to favor this natural care over the medications that trainers traditionally give. “I wanted to set the standard within football,” said Rice. “I knew if chiropractic helped me put up outstanding numbers, it could help my teammates do the same.”
Rice was twice named the NFL Offensive Player of the Year, won three Super Bowls, and still holds nearly every record as a receiver. He retired as the league’s career receiving leader. Rice was recently announced as a 2010 NFL Hall of Fame candidate.
The foundation made its own version of a “Hall of Fame” induction by presenting Rice with a medal for his commitment to chiropractic.
