ABC's Dancing With The Stars Needs Chiropractic Too

During ABC's new popular program, Dancing With The Stars, football great Emmitt Smith discussed his key relationship with his chiropractor, Robert Parker, DC. The show included footage showing Smith receiving treatment from Dr. Parker prior to his dance competition; Dr. Parker has been treating Smith since 1995. According to head judge Len Goodman, Smith went on to deliver "the best samba of the night". During the same episode, two of the show's dancing professionals, Karina Smirnoff and Ashly DelGrosso, were dancing injured. As a result, program producers had a chiropractor standing by just in case the women needed treatment.
