Child Celeb Big Advocate of Chiropractic

Jonathan Lipnicki is the child star of movies including Jerry McGuire and the two Stuart Little movies. He has been under chiropractic care nearly all of his life. In fact, one of his first interviews on the Tonight Show with Jay Leno, he mentioned he dreamed of being a chiropractor when he grows up. Evidently his future career won't be as a chiropractor since his acting career continues to skyrocket. However, he still wants chiropractic to be a part of his life as he stated at a recent chiropractic convention appearance that he may not become a chiropractor, but he'd like to marry one.

Lipnicki, now 15, has additionally shown his passion for chiropractic by taking on the role being a spokesperson for Pediatric Chiropractic. In an interview released in the January 2005 issue of Chiropractic Economics, he mentioned that he experienced his first adjustment when he was just a couple of months old and he's been receving adjustments most of his life. He stated, "It's a good way to live. You perform at your best, whether it's academically or physically."

He also showed his support for a chiropractic lifestyle in an interview for the February 26, 2005 issue of Dynamic Chiropractic where he commented, "If you want to perform at your ultimate best, if you want to be the best you can be in sports and in school, mentally, physically - chiropractic is the way, because everything has to do with your nervous system, and if you can clear up any subluxation in there, you'll be pretty much OK."

Lipnicki will be doing public service announcements and speaking to the press in a effort to raise the consciousness of children and their parents concerning chiropractic and a healthy lifestyle. He made his reasoning clear by saying in the Chiropractic Economics article, "I want to be part of the solution by telling kids. I love this wellness lifestyle."
