(NewsUSA) - Over the span of his career, defensive back and two-time Super Bowl champion Mark Collins has experienced more than his fair share of unnecessary roughness.

"I played defensive back for the New York Giants from 1986 to 1997, with the Kansas City Chiefs, the Green Bay Packers and the Seattle Seahawks," Collins says. "Played 13 great years, had a lot of hits.

"Gave a lot of hits and took some hits, too, and I can tell you it has wear and tear on your body."

After all those years of blocking and tackling, it's no wonder Collins felt his body needed a tune-up.

"I started using chiropractic care in 1986 after a long training camp," he recalls. "I found that my body really was out of shape and I wasn't ready, structurally, until I met a chiropractor at the Reebok camp in 1986 -- and ever since then, I swear by it.

"It does work. It's done wondrous things for my career, and it's been fantastic."

Today, Mark works with kids from seventh grade through high school, helping them obtain scholarships while teaching them to take care of their bodies through better nutrition and chiropractic care.
