Chiropractic Patient Wins Olympic Gold

U.S. Olympic speedskater, Derek Parra, became the first double medalist at the Olympic speedskating winning a gold medal in the men's 1,500 meters and a silver in the 5,000 meters event. Parra, an American Chiropractic Association (ACA)-sponsored olympian, skated his way to a new olympic record. With a record time of 1 minute, 43.95 seconds, Parra amazed the crowd. He credits regular chiropractic care with helping to keep his body in optimal performance. "I've always been a proponent of chiropractic care," Parra said. "I've used a lot of other treatments for injuries and pain, but the problem doesn't get fixed until I go to a doctor of chiropractic."
