Playing running back in the NFL is one of the toughest jobs in the game. If they are not scoring touchdowns or running out of bounds at the end of plays, they are getting hit. Repeatedly getting hit week after week produces aches and pains, which is why all backs in the league visit chiropractors. Well, most of them.
New York Giants running back Rashad Jennings recently left his chiropractor, not because the 31-year-old will have less playing time or because the chiropractor was doing a bad job, but because Jennings found out that his chiropractor was a Philadelphia Eagles fan.
I went to see a chiropractor. He said he was an Eagles fan. I got off the table and left before he said another word. Too close. #Gmen

Rivalries in the NFC are no joke, and now fans know how serious they are to the players. The 6-foot-1, 230 pound Jennings needs to find a new doctor soon. He is projected to be the starting back for the G-Men, and chiropractic care can do a lot of good for his body.
If they are not addressed, aches and pains can lead to more serious injuries. By correcting spinal alignment and function, a chiropractor can help maximize an athlete's performance on the field. Chiropractors can also fix asymmetries, increase range of motion and promote faster healing. Jennings' health and well being could depend on it.
