Is Big Emm in trouble?

Yesterday, Emmitt Smith tweeted that he and Cheryl Burke would have an early practice that morning and then do a piece for Ellen DeGeneres' show later that day. But today the Dallas resident tweeted, "Got back from LA last night!!! This morning at the chiropracter office." And he shared this photo.

Is he hurt? We hope not! It’s more likely he’s just continuing his regular routine. Emmitt is a big believer in chiropractic work. The Hayden Institute in Texas featured a story called "Emmitt Smith Attributes Chiropractic To His Success" which quoted two stories in 2002 about how Emmitt decided to invest in his body to help stay injury-free.

According to the story, the Dallas Cowboys star believed so much in chiropractic that he asked his chiropractor to relocate his practice closer to the practice field. He visited his chiropractor two or three times per week and the doc even flew with the team to take care of Emmitt and some other players right up until the games started.

So it sounds like Emmitt may be using his tried-and-true methods to keep his 43-year-old body from getting hurt in the crazy minefield of DWTS. Someone has to stay intact out there!
