"If I could put a percentage value on it, I think I compete eight to ten percent better from regular Chiropractic care. I think that is how much of a benefit it is--if not more. If it wasn't for Chiropractic, I wouldn't have won the gold medal." declared O'Brien.
"You obviously can't compete at your fullest if you're not in alignment. And your body can't heal if your back is not in alignment. It was the holistic idea that I liked about Chiropractic and that is what track and field is about. Every track and field athlete that I have ever met has seen a Chiropractor at one time or another. In track and field, it is absolutely essential. Chiropractic care is one of the things I think that no one has denied or refuted."
