SHAPE's Integrated Therapy & Training

Chiropractic treatment has provided effective pain relief and improved quality of life for millions of people worldwide. Chiropractic treatment involves the use of completely natural, safe, drug-free, non-invasive, extremely comfortable, and highly effective manual therapy, fascial release techniques, acupuncture, physical rehabilitation and exercise designed to promote healing, restore function and enhance performance in the human body.

Research has demonstrated that chiropractic treatment can provide effective pain relief, alter tissue mechanics and promote healing. Chiropractors commonly treat all types of injuries and are highly competent health care professionals who have been trained extensively in manual therapy. Professional sports teams, large business corporations, and elite athletes have doctors of chiropractic managing their health.

Chiropractors are considered as primary health-care professionals as a result of their extensive professional training and academic education.
