MAX SCHERZER - WASHINGTON NATIONALS PITCHER - WINS WORLD SERIES WITH ASSISTANCE FROM CHIROPRACTIC CARE
After missing Game 5 of the 2019 World Series due to neck issues, Max used a cortisone shot and chiropractic adjustments to enable him to play in Game 7, and win.
Excerpt from CBS Sports:
"The cortisone shot worked," Scherzer added. "That relieved the pressure on the nerve, and then keep applying heat. Our chiropractor, he does amazing work, he was able to go in there and make adjustment. We did two treatments of it and really freed up the neck, the C5-C6 area, along with the trap, spasm, really felt like it subsided. And even when I was warming up tonight I felt really good. I'm good to go."
After winning Game 7 and the Series, here is what he had to say - (video below)
Announcer: How did you feel physically? Was it a risk physically?
Max: No, no. I was physically good. The cortisone shot worked. The adjustment… the chiropractic adjustment worked, so I felt good.
