  • "A Canadian research team included chiropractic care in the rehabilitation program of 16 injured runners. Not only did these runners recover quickly, seven of them actually scored 'personal best' performances while under chiropractic care."        --Grimston, SK, Engsberg JR, Shaw L & Vetanze NW, (1990) "Muscular rehabilitation prescribed in coordination with prior chiropractic therapy as a treatment for sacroiliac subluxations in female distance runners" Chiropractic Sports Medicine p.2-8
