March 31, 2010 — The Professional Football Chiropractic Society (PFCS), an organization of doctors who provide chiropractic care to the elite athletes of professional football, recently pledged its support to the Foundation for Chiropractic Progress (F4CP).
The announcement, made by Sol Cogan, PFCS president and Detroit Lions team chiropractor, was made during the PFCS’ 4th Annual Educational Seminar Feb. 27–28, 2010, in Indianapolis.
“Our goals are in line with, if not identical to, the goals of the Foundation for Chiropractic Progress — to communicate and educate the benefits of chiropractic care,” states Cogan. “Our involvement can only stem so far as football takes us, which is why we support the Foundation for creating positive messaging nationally regarding chiropractics health care influence in all aspects of life — not just football.”
The PFCS has grown significantly over the years, from twelve original members in 2001 to now having chiropractic members serving all 32 National Football League (NFL) teams. The organization’s growth has been a direct response to the growing popularity of chiropractic care within the NFL, as all 32 teams in the NFL now offer their players and personnel chiropractic physician services as part of the triage in managing and preventing injuries.
“The PFCS plans on adding to our initial pledge to the Foundation with individual contributions from all of our members who represent the teams in the NFL,” concludes Cogan.
