I came across and interesting article about a chiropractor in California involved with the Western States 100 Ultra marathon. What struck me is the extreme nature of this event. The chiropractor participated in this event as well as providing chiropractic adjustments to participants even multiple times. I found this interesting as I had made acquaintance with Floyd Patterson's (the former heavyweight champion) chiropractor who used to adjust him twice a day. It seems to me the need for care can be at a greater frequency than what people really think they need.
