Chiropractic Care for the Worlds Greatest Champions
By Michael Dorausch, D.C.

Cyclist Floyd LandisThe news is in, American cyclist, Floyd Landis has won this year’s (2006) Tour de France. News from all over the world is saying this is one of the biggest sports achievements in decades. The news of the Tour de France win for Landis came in just hours after it was reported that another well-known American, Tiger Woods, had just one his second British Open. The Landis win alone is enough to get any diehard sports enthusiast excited because the story behind his win is rather incredible. This year’s Tour de France was a thrilling adventure and Landis beat some pretty heavy odds to win this race.

Many American sports enthusiasts are undoubtedly mega-excited with today’s wins by both Landis and Woods. Could you imagine how excited one would be knowing these two sports figures personally? Now imagine this… how excited would you be if you’d been the chiropractor for either Floyd Landis or Tiger Woods. I’d say you’d be pretty excited. Just for a moment, imagine you were not only the chiropractor for Floyd Landis, but that you’ve also provided chiropractic care for Tiger Woods. While we’re at it, imagine you were also the chiropractor for seven-time Tour de France winning Lance Armstrong. That would be pretty freaking cool huh?

Well guess what? Chiropractor, Dr. Jeff Spencer, may just as well be called a mega-chiropractic superstar (known as Dr. Magic by Lance and some other mega-athletes). Not only has Spencer provided chiropractic care for Tiger Woods, he has been chiropractor to Lance Armstrong and Floyd Landis for several years now. While nearly all of today’s great athletes are receivers of chiropractic care, not many chiropractors have a roster of clients like Dr. Jeff Spencer does. But then not many chiropractors are former Olympic athletes like Dr. Jeff Spencer is. It looks like Spencer’s 2004 chiropractor of the year award, presented by Arnold Schwarzenegger, was well deserved.

30-year-old Floyd Landis regained the overall Tour de France race leader’s yellow jersey on Saturday during the final time trial. He finished Sunday’s 20th and final stage of the race behind Thor Hushovd of Norway. Landis ended the race 57 seconds ahead of Oscar Pereiro of Spain, Andreas Kloeden of Germany was third. Floyd Landis joins Lance Armstrong and Greg LeMond as the third American to win the Tour de France.

Congratulations to Dr. Jeff Spencer, Floyd Landis, and Tiger Woods!
