In 1979, Coburn started suffering from severe rheumatoid arthritis which has at times left him debilitated. In 1998, a holistic healer started him on a dietary supplement , which has resulted in a drastic improvement in his condition. He told The Associated Press in a 1999 interview that he had "healed himself" by taking sulfur-based pills. Although his knuckles remained gnarled, the pills cured him of the excruciating pain.

Coburn was a pallbearer at Bruce Lee's funeral
