How Chiropractic Care Helped One Man Get His Wiggle Back

(NewsUSA) - He's the original "Blue Wiggle," and possibly the last person on this planet you'd ever recognize as suffering from clinical depression.

However, that's exactly what Anthony Field, founder and co-star of the popular children's musical group The Wiggles, says was the cause of numerous health problems that plagued him for years, and -- parents, brace yourselves -- jeopardized the longevity of his wiggling career

"I was burdened by chronic back and neck pain, as well as a string of digestive and food sensitivity issues that extenuated my general ill health, fueled by clinical depression, to the point that I could no longer continue," he says.

It's what got him back on the right track, though, that's perhaps even more surprising.

"Chiropractic care saved my career," Field proclaims.

In his new book, "How I Got My Wiggle Back," he describes how a certain chiropractor helped change him from an overweight, pain-racked mess into the muscled Adonis he is today. "His turnaround has been inspirational," says Kent S. Greenawalt, chairman of the not-for-profit Foundation for Chiropractic Progress.
