Chances are, a local chiropractor in your area is providing care for musicians. In places like New York City (especially Manhattan) and Los Angeles, chiropractors providing care to those performing in the music industry, is very common. It’s also not uncommon for chiropractors to be on call at stadiums and sports arenas for musical events. Some performers even travel with their chiropractors. In the 1990s, Mega rock ‘n roll band Guns n Roses (long-awaited Chinese Democracy was released today), had a tour chiropractor. The current Death Magnetic Metallica tour also has a chiropractor (gives new meaning to headbanging whiplash) on board.
