Dr. Glass with players from the Los Angeles
KISS Arena Football League team.
Dustin Glass, D.C., San Jose ’03, is the team chiropractor
for the new Arena Football League (AFL) franchise in
Los Angeles owned by the rock band KISS. His primary
practice is Competitive Edge Chiropractic in Lake
During the AFL season, which runs from April to July,
Dr. Glass works as part of a sports-care team that includes
the head athletic trainer and head medical doctor.
He provides chiropractic care for players once a
week at team practices, at every home game and in his
Anaheim office on an as-needed basis.
Dr. Glass was in the locker room when KISS members
and primary team owners Gene Simmons and Paul
Stanley delivered their pre-game pep talk before the
team’s inaugural game in April. “It was very energetic
and ‘theatrical’ in true KISS fashion,” says Dr.
Glass, noting that film crews are present at all
practices and games. The team’s debut season,
and the involvement with its two Rock-and-
Roll Hall-of Fame member owners, will be
produced as part of a reality TV show on AMC.
