Chi­ro­prac­tor Helps Pro­fes­sional Foot­ball Team

A fea­ture story appear­ing in the June 30, 2005 edi­tion of the Catonsville Times in Mary­land cel­e­brated the 10 year anniver­sary that a chi­ro­prac­tor had been help­ing the Bal­ti­more Ravens Pro­fes­sional Foot­ball team. Ten years ago the Ravens came to town. At that time Dr. Doug Miller (right) started his rela­tion­ship with the team that has lasted since then.

Dr. Miller became the team’s chi­ro­prac­tor by con­tact­ing the Ravens shortly after their move from Cleve­land and telling offi­cials about the ser­vices he pro­vided to other sports teams in the area. He was on the play­ing field when the Bal­ti­more Ravens won the 2000 Super­bowl. He can also be found in the locker room and on the field on most Sun­days dur­ing foot­ball season.

Raven’s trainer Bill Tessendorf, refers most of the play­ers that Dr. Miller sees for chi­ro­prac­tic care. Tessendorf, who has 32 years of expe­ri­ence as an NFL trainer explained, “A player favor­ing a knee or an ankle can cause align­ment prob­lems else­where. A chi­ro­prac­tor can help with a lot of those issues.”

Dr. Miller explained that chi­ro­prac­tic care still remains mis­un­der­stood. Most of his ser­vices are not nec­es­sar­ily related to the treat­ment of injuries. He explains, “It’s not just about reliev­ing pain from back­aches and injuries,” he said. “It’s about achiev­ing opti­mum health. We can do a lot to help with the con­di­tion­ing of mus­cles and joints.”

The arti­cle notes that presently almost every NFL team has a chi­ro­prac­tor on staff.
