Dr. Shapiro acknowledges and respects the body's innate ability to heal itself when stressors are reduced and eliminated, such as CHIROPRACTIC SUBLUXATIONS (misalignments of the spine and or extremities capable of deteriorating health). The NERVOUS SYSTEM coordinates all processes in the body and Chiropractic ADJUSTMENTS (to realign the spinal Subluxations and reduce the spinal stress) have an effect on the nervous system, peripheral and central (brain/spinal cord); they may help reduce stress on the body, and even increase the immune system response. He hopes to bring to the public, the same and even better quality of HEALTH CARE he experienced as a young adult.
Born in Winnipeg, MB, Canada, Dr. Shapiro became a chiropractor because of the dramatic life changes that took place through the art, science and philosophy of chiropractic. He wrote the MCAT (Medical College Admissions Test), he was in the process of applying to medical school when he was in 5 car accidents within 1 year at the age of 20 years old. As a result he has suffered with migraine headaches, neck pain, upper back pain, lower back pain and eventually leg numbness. His medical physician put him on medication. He was seeing a physiotherapist who performed acupuncture, applied various physiotherapy modalities and supervised his exercise rehab. Despite the efforts of these caring professionals he was in constant pain. Thankfully, Chiropractic was recommended to him by his thoughtful attorney. Chiropractic Adjustments brought him relief and a quality of life he was not able to imagine at the time. He had no choice but to give back what was given to him! CHIROPRACTIC!
