"Bodybuilders and fitness people have been using, very extensively, chiropractors in order to stay healthy and fit. Whenever I had a little problem with my body, I always ran to one of my dear friends (Franco Columbo,D.C.). He was always right there with the adjustments. This is how I found out the best way of going is to use chiropractors, not only after injuries, but also before injury."
