You wouldn’t know it to look at me today but back in the late 1970s, I played on my high school football team. What’s more, I played on the same team as Hall of Fame NFL quarterback John Elway, who by the way, probably wouldn’t have passed Chemistry if it weren’t for me.
My point in sharing this is that Elway recently returned to my high school (Granada Hills Charter High School) in Southern California to tape an episode of ESPN’s new reality show, “Homecoming,” which features A-list athletes participating in one-on-one interviews with noted sports journalist Rick Reilly.
I have great memories of playing high school sports and studying alongside the likes of Super Bowl MVP John Elway. I’ve become older and wiser, I’ve often reflected on just how lucky I was to know someone like Elway before he became a household name.
Many of the high performance athletes I treat through my kinesiology practice are household names in their sports as well, but the moment they enter one of my two clinics, they’re just like everyone else I see… they’re experiencing lower back pain and need immediate and long-term relief; or, they’ve suffered an injury and wonder if I can save them from going under the knife. You see, it doesn’t matter if you’re John Elway or John Smith… we all hurt in similar ways, and we all deserve the best possible treatment at an affordable price, which is exactly what I offer—along with a ton of education—for each and every one of my clients.
