Chiropractic is a time-tested method of non-invasive, non-surgical treatment that is rapidly moving to the forefront of today's healthcare industry. Gentle, yet effective adjustments allow nerves to function properly so the body can heal itself without the use of drugs that can cause damaging side-effects.
Pain may be common, but it's not
At any given moment, 31 million people suffer from back pain. Are all these people simply accepting their pain? Are they taking pills or prescription medications so they can work through the pain? Pain is our body's way of telling us something is wrong; if you mask the pain and continue injuring the body, you are headed for serious problems. Remember-- if you wear out a car, you can buy a new one. But if you wear out your body, where are you going to live?
"The doctor of the future will give no medicine, but will interest patients in the care of the human frame, in diet, and in the cause and prevention of disease."
Have you ever tried to get help for a health problem, only to be told that nothing can help you? Many treatable conditions go undetected, and well-meaning doctors may incorrectly recommend psychotherapy or even Prozac when they don't know what else to try. There is an alarming increase of children being given Ritalin for ADD and ADHD.
Despite what you may have been told:
You do not need to learn to live with it.
In the 40's and 50's, dentures may have been common, but losing teeth is certainly not normal. Four out of five people suffer from low back pain. Unfortunately this is common, yet low back pain is certainly not a normal condition of the body.
- Second only to the common cold, back pain is a leading cause of time lost from work.
- Chiropractic is the fastest growing alternative/natural/healing.
- Statistics show that Chiropractic is more cost-effective than traditional methods of treatment, and allows a faster return to work

"My daughter has always been high energy, but I was shocked when her new teacher asked that I put her on Ritalin for ADHD. I don't believe in giving drugs to my kids. Dr. Shaw explained how correcting tension in her spine could help her concentrate and focus better. A few months later I got a call saying that my daughter was doing really well at school and the teacher thanked me for putting her on Ritalin. I told her, 'She's not on Ritalin, she's on Chiropractic!'"

The central nervous system, which controls movement and feeling, is integral to communicating signals to the rest of the body. The spine's role is to protect this system, so a spinal misalignment can lead to conditions such as back pain, asthma, digestive problems, migraines, and insomnia. Carefully re-aligning the body and reducing muscle tension allow the nervous system to communicate effectively, reducing or even eliminating symptoms.
Chiropractic can help you with headaches, sleeping problems, stress, stomach problems, mood swings, and more.
Early Detection = Early Correction
Shaw Chiropractic Center utilizes state of the art high frequency technology to assist in the proper diagnosis and treatment of your specific needs. We strive to consistently provide the most effective, up-to-date health care available.
The earlier a problem is detected and corrected, the better. Many people wait to seek help until the symptoms become intolerable. Perhaps this is because many people don't understand that good health is not just the absence of symptoms. In 40% of cases, the first symptom of heart disease can be a fatal heart attack!
It is no wonder that the United Nations World Health Organization rates America as having one of the lowest general health indexes. Masking symptoms of pain with medication, is similar to removing the engine warning light from your car.
Studies by International Research teams have shown that Chiropractic prevents DNA damage that contributes to the aging process. Regular Chiropractic care keeps you physically, mentally, and emotionally young. Why not feel like a kid again?
My doctor told me, "If that hurts, don't do it". And I thought, "I need another doctor". When I came to Dr. Shaw with my knee problem, she helped me identify the specific movements that put torque on my knee. She helped me figure out how to modify them so I didn't have to give up my training. We modified techniques like my spinning round-house kick, and I was able to go on to get my black belt.

I knit every chance I get. The doctors told me my hands were arthritic and that I would have to give up knitting. Dr. Shaw said she might be able to help. After only one adjustment, my hands were no longer swollen or painful. I'm grateful that I don't have to give up what I love to do.
Dr. Shaw helped my low back pain go away which I think was caused from carrying my heavy accordion. Now I don't have to turn people down when they ask me to play. When I start to play, it's great to see people jump up to dance again.

I'm a mechanic and race car driver. When I couldn't lie flat on my back to work on my racecar, I knew that my career and passion were in danger. I'm glad a friend told me about Dr. Shaw. I felt immediate results in my back and on the track.

I've had High Blood Pressure and peripheral neuropathy in my feet for years Dr. Shaw has helped me lower my high blood pressure through Chiropractic adjustments, diet, and exercise. Even the peripheral neuropathy in my feet has improved. Now I try to keep my body and my car in "classic" condition.
