We provide advanced spinal correction and chiropractic adjustments utilizing both "tried and true" and "state of the art" chiropractic techniques. Dr. Dean Shapiro's years of training, expertise and experience in helping patients get fast pain relief for back pain, neck pain, headaches, and other related conditions originating from the spine is reliable. Constantly learning on the cutting edge, he is committed to opening to you the avenues of healing. Looking at the whole person, Dr. Shapiro has brought together in his office many channels of help for a diversity of needs.

Spinal Decompression

Is chiropractic an appropriate treatment for herniated or bulging discs or an alternative for surgery? It may be! Besides what hope Dr. Shapiro may have to offer you through chiropractic adjustments, King Chiropractic also has non-surgical Spinal Decompression therapy. This advanced approach relieves pressure on discs, hastens healing, and alleviates pain. This FDA cleared treatment is a refreshingly safe and affordable alternative to surgery and even a relief for failed surgical procedures. Consider the benefits of investigating the appropriateness of this treatment for your condition. See our Spinal Decompression page for further information, or call us to schedule a free consultation with Dr. Shapiro.

Massage Therapy

Massage therapy does more than make you feel good; it can actually help your body achieve balance and health. Massage therapy offers a natural treatment approach which actually relieves musculoskeletal pain for many patients. Our chiropractic office provides specific massage and muscular therapy that is complimentary to their chiropractic care. The benefits of massage therapy may include the increase of blood circulation, a localized reduction in swelling and the relaxation of muscles. Massage has been known to relieve muscle pain and spasms, increase a patient's range of motion, while also aiding in a patient's recovery. Some investigative studies have even indicated that a single session of massage may help boost your immune system!

Nutritional Counseling

What does nutrition have to do with chiropractic care? The goal of chiropractic care is to help patients achieve total health and balance with their body, and as part of that goal we provide specific recommendations on nutritional supplements and healthy food choices. Nutritional counseling by our experienced chiropractic health professionals can assist a patient on their return to optimal health. Do you know which supplements and vitamins are good for you? Do you know how these supplements and vitamins interact with one another? At our office, we can provide patients with structured nutritional programs based on their individual needs.

Lifestyle Advice

Many of our patients come to see Dr. Shapiro to address a specific pain symptom such as back pain, neck pain or headaches. While he will, of course, address each specific condition with chiropractic care, he will often "coach" our patients towards achieving a healthier lifestyle. For example, there may be certain activities that you should avoid or do differently to prevent yourself from unintentionally aggravating your particular health challenges. The goal of including lifestyle advice with a chiropractic care plan is to help each and every patient achieve the fulfilling and happy lifestyle they deserve, one that is full of the activities that are enjoyed most. We recognize that every single one of our patients is a whole person, and we use our expertise to help them reach total health and wellness.

Corrective Exercises

At King Chiropractic, we teach our patients how to perform special "blueprint" exercises which can help strengthen and correct the irregularities in their body which may be causing pain. Many of these corrective exercises can actually be performed in the comfort of your own home to help improve the effectiveness of your chiropractic care and spinal correction plan. In addition to skeletal misalignment, you may be experiencing pain that is caused by muscles and connective tissues which are out of their proper place. Other types of pain such as back pain, neck pain, and headaches are caused by muscles and tissues that are being used improperly, causing injuries over time. In each case, targeted corrective exercises and stretches from our experienced chiropractor will help you feel good while also helping your body achieve balance and health.

Dr. Shapiro literally got me standing again after I experienced a painful back problem. He was patient, thoughtful, and meticulous in his approach. Each time I see Dr. Shapiro I learn something new about how to sustain my well-being and keep my body strong. I am excited to have his knowledge and support as I recover and move forward towards experiencing better health than ever before.
