While celebrities are often glamorized for their talents in tabloid magazines and on the news, most don’t realize that they are normal people just like anyone else. And because of this, many celebrities go to chiropractors when they sustain injuries of their own.
Ellen DeGeneres, who hosts her own talk show, was recently talking about a time during her anniversary party when she injured her back. Ellen stated that her chiropractor claims that she injured her back so easily because of her poor posture. While Ellen normally sits and crosses her legs, her chiropractor recommended that she sit straight up with her legs planted firmly on the ground like Forrest Gump.

Lance Armstrong, the 7 time winner of the Tour De France, claims that his chiropractor was the most important man on the entire racing team. After all, while the riders are the ones who must win the race, a chiropractor is essential to keep everyone in check and to make sure that they all feel okay while riding. Bike riders in long races will be hunched over for many miles, which can give them constant back problems. This is why Lance Armstrong states that chiropractors are so important to help prevent constant pain so that a person can race efficiently.

Emmitt says that he would visit a chiropractor after each football game to ensure that his body doesn’t carry too much pain throughout the rest of the week.
