Chiropractic Care Revealed To Be One Of The Ultimate Fighters Back Pain Relief Secret.

By Dr. Michael Pritsker, DC

Everyone wants to know a good secret. This is especially true when it comes to a back pain relief secret. But the question is can you keep a secret? I hope not, because the secret I’m about to reveal should be shouted from the mountaintops. Here’s why. Have you ever heard of ultimate fighting?” With its sudden rise in popularity, you probably have. And I bet many still think it’s some ultraviolent bar-room brawl with sadistic, blood-thirsty fans.

That opinion may have been justified many years ago when the legendary Gracie family first started The Ultimate Fighting Championship in the United States. At that time, the Gracie family believed their brand of martial arts dubbed Gracie Jiu-jitsu to be unbeatable. They were well known in Brazil for The Gracie Challenge. As the legend has it, one of Gracie Jiu-Jitsu’s originators, Hellio Gracie, often ran newspaper ads in Rio De Janeiro requesting anyone who wanted broken arms, legs and ribs to simply show up at his marital arts academy! They were obviously trying to prove a point.

Shortly after coming to the United States, one of Hellio’s many sons’, Rorion, sent shock waves through the mixed martial arts world by announcing he would fight any man to the death for $100,000 in an early 90′s magazine interview. Rorion was also the mastermind behind the original Ultimate Fighter Championship that pitted fighters from many different fighter styles against each other with basically no rules in a fenced-in “cage” called “the octagon.” The Graicies wanted to prove to the world their fighter style was the best. And after Rorion’s skinny little brother, Royce, quickly dismantled all his opponents – some out-weighing him by over 100 pounds – they had proven their point.

It didn’t take many of those “no rules” fighting tournaments before local governments stepped in and outlawed the event in most states in America. Since that time, however, that “shock event” has turned into a legitimate sport with sanctioning bodies and rules to protect the fighters in each state. It has also attracted some of the best athletes in the world such as Olympic Gold Medalists in Wrestling, former professional football players, and Judo, Professional boxers and many others. Because the fighters must be accomplished at so many different fighting arts and skills (Kickboxing, Wrestling, Brazilian Jiujitsu, Thai Boxing just to name a few), many think ultimate fighters are the ultimate athletes.

Why am I telling you all this and what does it have to do with relieving back ache? As you can imagine, Ultimate Fighter also puts ultimate stress and strain on your back. These athletes are constantly picking up opponents, punching, kicking and twisting themselves into a pretzel. And because of that, back ache is common. So how do these fighters keep themselves training and fighter ache-free?

Here’s is how. During the final show in the second season of the hit Spike TV series “Ultimate Fighter,” the heavyweight winner, Rashad Evans, took the time to thank Chiropractic Care. This was for relieving his back pain and allowing him to fight that night! THIS WAS NOT A PAID ENDORSMENT! This was a testimonial to chiropractic care.

Even more amazing, Former Olympic Greco-Roman wrestler, Randy Cotour is the former world heavyweight champion. What’s so amazing about that? He was 43 years old! Whether you agree with this sport or not, can you imagine being in good enough physical condition to be able to step into a cage and fight another person… half your age? And not only that… be the best in the world? I have heard and read several interviews with Randy. What does he credit for his mind-boggling success and what seems to be his fountain of youth? He always mentions three things that are Diet, Hard training and Chiropractic care

And listen to this… just about every ultimate fighter I looked into was under routine Chiropractic care. So what? You don’t know who any of the “ultimate fighters” are. I thought you might say that, so I’ve compiled a little list of athletes and celebrities you will recognize. All have the money and resources to choose any treatment their little heart’s desire. Yet, they all have chosen to be under Chiropractic care. They are Michael Jordan, Tiger Woods, Muhammad Ali, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Wayne Gretzky, Evander Holyfield, Rocky Marciano, Joe Montana, Sylvester Stallone, Robin Williams, Whitney Houston, Alec Baldwin, Richard Gere, Anthony Robbins, and more.

And this is a very small sample of the entire list I have put together. It’s really amazing. And here’s something to think about: I wonder how many athletes and celebrities that get paid to endorse a drug or similar product were actually helped by Chiropractic or another alternative without the deep pocket to pay for testimonials? Who knows? I guess that’s a secret…Final thought for this month: I’m not saying you are going to be able to step into the octagon and fight a 20-year-old kid if you are under Chiropractic care. But, if routine Chiropractic care is how the best athletes in the world relieve their back ache and function at elite levels, don’t you think it could help your back ache and the quality of your life?
