Second Super Bowl Ring for N.Y. Giants DC

By Editorial Staff

New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning was one of many Giants players to collect a second Super Bowl ring in four years with a victory over the New England Patriots in Super Bowl XLVI on Feb. 5; joining them in the celebration was Dr. Rob DeStefano, team chiropractor for the Giants, who also took home his second ring following the 21-17 win.

In a press release from the Foundation for Chiropractic Progress issued days before the big game, Dr. DeStefano, who practices in Hackensack, N.J., and has been with the Giants since 2002, explained how he helps keep the players game ready:

"Professional athletes rely greatly on the coordinated efforts of the entire health care team, comprised of athletic trainers, rehabilitation specialists, physical therapists, orthopedists and chiropractors," said Dr. DeStefano. "With the exception of 24/7 availability, preparing for [the] Super Bowl is no different than the regular season. As injuries present themselves, we work systematically to provide the athlete with the care needed. In the end, we hope for quick recovery and high-level performance."

By the way, the Giants weren't the only ones with a DC on the sidelines; the Patriots had Dr. Michael Miller, whose involvement with the team spans 30 years (which would mean three Super Bowl rings). Said Dr. Miller:

"Most of our players will get adjusted prior to games to adequately prepare their bodies for battle," he said. "Several times during the playoffs, incidents occurred that required chiropractic care and, subsequent to sideline treatment, players were able to return to action the following play. We expect to have the same efficiency going into and during the Super Bowl."

One can't question Dr. Miller's efficiency, even in the face of less-than-perfect efficiency by the Patriots in the loss. To learn more about chiropractic involvement in the NFL, visit the Professional Football Chiropractic Society Web site: www.profootballchiros.com.
