When the stars' backs are killing them, or they just want to relieve the stress that comes with being in the limelight, many Hollywood celebrities head for the office of Leroy Perry, president of the International Sports Medicine Institute in West L.A.
His magic fingers have helped heal such Tinseltown notables as Sharon Stone, Jack Nicholson, Jane Fonda, George Hamilton, Catherine Oxenberg and Warren Beatty. In fact, according to People magazine, when Sharon Stone was making last-minute plans for her recent marriage, one item on the list was a house call from Leroy Perry. He was the on-set chiropractor for the 1982 sports film, "Personal Best," starring Mariel Hemingway. He was thanked in the credits of Warren Beatty's "Bugsy." He even played a bit role (as a doctor, what else?) in the 1993 remake of "Born Yesterday" starring Melanie Griffith and Don Johnson. He was also the team doctor for the Soviet Olympic track team in the early 90's, and was enlisted by team members to carry their flag at the World Championship in Tokyo.
Getting there: the doctor's institute is located about a mile southeast of the Westside Pavilion mall, a block south of the Santa Monica (10) Freeway.
