Chiropractic Keeps Stockton in the Game
In the October 19, 1998 issue, we published an article from Kelley Jarvis,DC,FACO, on the chiropractic care received by the players for the Utah Jazz of the National Basketball Association from team chiropractor Craig Buhler (see "Chiropractic and All That Jazz" on line at www.chiroweb.com/archives/16/22/08.html). The two veteran players featured in that story were the perennial Jazz stars, guard John Stockton and forward Karl Malone.
Doug Smith, a sports reporter for the Toronto Star, recently noted in his column that Stockton, 40, the oldest player in the NBA, believes the greatest reason he's still able to compete is the care he receives from the team chiropractor. "It's been great for me and for my family," he told the Toronto Star.
Stockton's play proved pivotal in Utah's victory against the Sacramento Kings in game two of their first-round playoff confrontation.
