Erle V. Painter is just as famous in the chiropractic world as Babe Ruth is in the sports world. For all thirteen years he was on the Yankees’ payroll, he was widely considered one of the most valuable men to the team despite not hitting a single home run. As the team chiropractor and trainer, Painter was responsible for the well-being and peak performance of the team, including Babe Ruth himself. But why was chiropractic care so important to the Yankees?
