Why We Do What We Do

We take this multidisciplined approach to chiropractic for two reasons.


Our holistic chiropractic approach works. Everything we do is supported by rigorous clinical research and has been shown to improve physical and mental health, as well as overall well being. Consistent results have given us our confidence.


The human body is a complex network of interactive systems, of which the nervous system is the most critical part. The path toward health and wellness on a physical, mental and spiritual level requires health care that addresses all three of these levels. Chiropractic does, and our approach to it is unique and comprehensive.


How We Do It

We Use A Three Pronged Approach


Injury recovery: Most people go to a chiropractor because they are injured. Whether you were injured in a car accident, a fall, or a sport, our first goal is to promote the body’s natural healing ability. We do this by reducing inflammation around the injured area and by reducing tension on the spinal cord, which enhances the body’s ability to heal.

Adjustments: We take a more restrained approach to adjustments, using the minimum amount of force. Our goal is to guide the body toward self-correction rather than force your spine and other joints into alignment. All of our adjustment approaches are gentle and research-based.

Education: As chiropractors and educators, we teach you self-care strategies to help you be well. We make sure that you have the skills and strategies to take care of yourself and your injury when you’re not on our table, including stretches and exercises, guidance on proper movement mechanics, diet, and stress reduction.


Why Choose The Shift


We don’t want to just eliminate your pain, we want to unlock your full potential.

Our philosophy is that the person you want to be -- pain free, healthy, focused and energized -- is already inside you. That person just needs the right tools and strategies to flourish. Our goal is to take away everything that is holding that person back.


The Shift is chiropractic medicine for the modern world. It optimizes the human body and unlocks full human potential.

Our natural state is to be healthy. The Shift is about moving you back to that state with confidence, clarity and understanding about how to care for the body and mind throughout life.
