Is Your Spring Stuck?
As leader of the Australian children’s music group The Wiggles, Anthony Field performs in concerts for over a million audience members each year. Since 1991, the group has earned 17 gold, 12 platinum, three double-platinum, and ten multi-platinum awards for sales of over 17 million DVDs and 4 million albums. Witnessing the unmatched joy of young kids singing and dancing up a storm every day makes the Wiggles, according to Anthony, “the greatest job in the world”.
But despite their unprecedented worldwide success, he almost gave it all up in 2004. Anthony was addled by chronic back and neck pain along with a string of digestive and food intolerance issues that had left his in a general state of poor health and fueled the clinical depression he had battled for years. As much as he loved performing with the Wiggles, it got to the point that he simply couldn’t continue. According to Anthony, he was “smiling on stage every day, but in agony behind the scenes.”
Fortunately, Anthony discovered chiropractic care, which he credits to literally saving his life and career. His chiropractor took the time to explain fully how his spine acts like a giant spring and how not only his physical ailments but the series of chronic, debilitating illnesses he was experiencing stemmed from the locking of his spring. After working with his chiropractor for a few days, Anthony started looking at his body in a whole new way.
He began to hire teams of chiropractors for hisself, his fellow band members, and cast members in every city they performed, which he credits with making it possible for the Wiggles to fulfill their touring requirements. His experience with chiropractic inspired his to embrace a physical health and fitness routine that he’s detailed in his book, How I Got My Wiggle Back. Now at age 48, Anthony, along with the rest of the Wiggles, is in better health and more physically fit than he was in a teenager, all due to the chiropractic and physical fitness routines they’ve adopted.
