(NewsUSA) - Named after a small town in her home state of Idaho, Picabo Street gained fame as an Olympic gold medalist and World Cup ski champion. But her career might've literally gone downhill had she not turned to chiropractic care.

"Chiropractic has been a life saver for me," says Street. "I can say that [without it] I do not think that I would be able to ski today, recreationally or otherwise."

Street won a gold medal in the 1998 Winter Olympics. Later that year, she slammed into a fence and broke her leg in multiple places. Despite this setback, she refused to give up -- and after her recovery, committed herself to getting back on the slopes.

She returned in 2000, but was unable to train without the help of medication. After meeting her chiropractor, she was training prescription-free after two treatments.

"After I had met with Dr. Craig Buhler, I can honestly say it's made a profound impact on my life," she says. "It has allowed me to chase my dreams and make them come true."

Street retired from competitive sports after the 2002 Olympic games. Movie-goers can see her in the documentary "Doctored," where she talks about the benefits of chiropractic care and can be seen receiving care. For more information, visit www.yes2chiropractic.org.
