FOUNDER OF BEACH BOYS RAVES ABOUT CHIROPRACTIC BENEFITS
Vol. 8 Issue 1
Chiropractic has been a "lifesaver," according to Al Jardine, a founding member of the world-renowned Beach Boys.
"Chiropractic has just been incredible," he said during a recent interview with Dynamic Chiropractic magazine.
Jardine said the Beach Boys had a Chiropractor at every show; eventually it was a Chiropractor who became the "team doctor" and travelled with the group as they performed all over the world.
The Beach Boys have performed for more than 40 years, in some form or another. "Chiropractic basically kept our bodies in shape," he said.
"I think the general public should know more about Chiropractic and take advantage of it, because our medical profession is just treating these problems," Jardine said. "But by large, most of these ailments are treatable without evasive surgery, medicine or drugs."
"The whole AMA 'thing' is overkill - it's such a powerful establishment," he said. "But, Chiropractic is a great alternative for me. It's a practical application - a lifesaver."
"…It's the common-sense practice that Chiropractic uses - treating the patient instead of just treating the condition," he said. "That's exactly the way it should be."
