Chiropractic in the NFL


Thomas Jones and Dr. Richard Shaker, Chiropractic PhysicianFor four seasons in the NFL, after having suffered a chest injury while playing my rookie year, I had not been able to breathe properly. I also had severe pain in my chest and rib cage. Previous to Dr. Shaker, I had seen every medical specialist, including other chiropractors—no one could help me. I was struggling to survive in the NFL. After two weeks of Dr Shaker’s treatments, I felt better than I had since the initial injury. I started playing like my old self and was able to split time with starting running back Michael Pittman. I am currently the starting running back for the Chicago Bears. Since then, I have flown Dr. Shaker to Chicago to treat me personally during the season.
-Thomas Jones, Running Back, Chicago Bears


Being a Sports Chiropractor since 1990, I have treated a mélange of elite pro athletes, including many past and present Tampa Bay Buccaneers players, some of whom are:

• Buccaneers All Time Leading Receiver, Mark Carrier
• Buccaneers Super Bowl XXXVII MVP and current Cincinnati Bengals Safety, Dexter Jackson
• Buccaneers Defensive Lineman, Chidi Ahanotu
• Buccaneers Defensive Back, Brian Kelly
• Buccaneers Wide Receiver, Michael Clayton
• Former Buccaneers and current Atlanta Falcons Pro Bowl Running Back, Warrick Dunn

Painkillers Like Ibuprofen Increase Risk for Stroke and Heart Attack

Studies have shown that over-the-counter NSAID pain killers like Ibuprofen, diclofenac, celecoxib, and naproxen can potentially cause users to have a heart attack or a stroke. New labeling being required by the US Food and Drug Administration on the packaging of NSAIDS will warn users of these possible side effects, along with advising them that their risk of heart failure is increased if they take these drugs. The new labels will include the fact that these heart problems can occur as soon as the initial weeks of use of the NSAIDS. They will also say that heart failure, heart attack, and stroke can affect people using NSAIDS who have no history of heart issues, and no genetic predisposition toward heart disease. People who already have heart issues or who have certain risk factors for heart disease have a higher probability of suffering heart failure, heart attacks, or strokes with NSAID usage, though. Studies seem to show that higher doses of NSAIDS increase possible heart failure or damage. NSAIDS have been used for years to treat fever as well as the pain from arthritis, headaches, abdominal cramping, and the discomfort from viral diseases.

Study Links Inactivity to Diabetes

Type 2 diabetes is an ever-increasing and insidious health risk. Studies in the past have linked the lack of physical activity to the risk of becoming diabetic. A new study conducted by Gibbs and his colleagues on 2,027 overweight people between the ages of 38 and 50 showed a definite correlation between a lack of daily physical activity and the increased risk of diabetes. Although certain elements of the study were critiqued by other professionals, the overall feeling was that the study once again demonstrated that being sedentary for up to 10 hours per day was a definitive factor in being at risk for developing diabetes. The study supported the benefits of a healthy, active lifestyle as well as a lifestyle that limits inactivity. People who were sedentary for a minimum of 10 hours per day were more than twice as likely to end up with glucose tolerance issues leading to diabetes than people whose daily sedentary time was less than 6 hours per day. The study suggests that people with daily sedentary behavior can reduce their risk of developing glucose intolerance impairment and subsequently developing diabetes by adding a regimen of daily physical activity to their behavior.
