Injured Redskins turn to chiropractor to recover quickly
Running back Mack Brown watched Josh Doctson’s college film this offseason, seeing clips of his teammate toe tapping in the end zone, high pointing passes and running crisp routes rolled into five-minute YouTube videos.
Doctson tried TheraBands to fix his Achilles injury, he tried stretching it and none of it helped reclaim his health. Brown knew what Doctson could do for the Redskins’ offense this season, so he recommended Doctson see Dr. Craig, a chiropractor in the Ashburn area who Brown visits for body maintenance.
“I knew he really was in pain. I was like, ‘You really need to go to this doctor to get your body worked on,’” Brown said. “You get Doctson at 100 percent, he’s a problem for the league, one of the best receivers in the league. We need to get him back healthy.”
While the receiver also attributes a clean offseason to rest, he also says trips to the chiropractor have helped cure some ailments he suffered from last season. Doctson said early in camp he couldn’t remember the last time he woke up to his Achilles aching.
Although Doctson, Brown, Colt McCoy, Jamison Crowder and DeAngelo Hall all go to Dr. Craig, none know his full name or the name of his practice in Ashburn. The five have even given conflicting accounts of whether he’s affiliated with the team.
The wide receiver attributes his care as one of the reasons he’s been able to impress in camp so far…
