Hands on Health Care
There are many components to a successful health care intervention. We will discuss treatment and financial options with you. It will then be up to you to decide if and how fast you want to proceed.

Consultation and Examination...
Your encounter with our office will begin with an unhurried consultation and examination. Specialized examination procedures help us determine how best to achieve your health goals.
Radiology...
Many patients’ histories warrant a radiographic examination of the spine. Our low exposure radiology equipment helps us visualize alignment, injury, and the degree of degeneration in your spine.
Adjustments...
The specific spinal adjustment is what separates chiropractic from other types of health care. This gentle, controlled pressure adds energy and motion to stuck or unbalanced spinal bones, reducing inflammation and allowing the spine and nerves to function as they are supposed to. Adjustments are guided by patient need and desire. Each person - infant, bodybuilder, or frail elderly woman – receives their own special adjustments and treatment frequency.
Manual therapies...
In addition to adjustments, we offer a range of physical procedures. We offer you proven technologies... without the unproven expensive bells and whistles.
Active Release Technique ... works to release muscle inhibition that prevents normal joint motion. Many chronic problems are relieved with this advanced manual technique. Involves specific pressure points with stretching movements to release chronic problems.
Therapeutic massage, myofascial release, and reflexology ... help to release tight aching muscles, and achieve a unique sense of relaxation. Releasing tension in all parts of the body, including the feet, is key to achieving maximal wellness.
Specialized corrective exercises ... help restore normal movement patterns, and strengthen and retrain key muscles that keep your spine and other joints balanced.
Posture ... Poor posture is one of the key players in stressing the spine and joints. We coach each client to help them reach their ideal posture.

Electrical Physiotherapies...
Many based on the principles of ancient chinese medicine, coupled with modern technology ...
Interferential Muscle Stim, Infrared Therapy, Ultrasound, and Hot and Cold Packs ... stimulate circulation, reduce muscle spasm and hypertonicity,and help pain go away faster naturally.
Other considerations...
Many health problems, including pain syndromes, respond faster when proper nutrition is addressed. This may include general diet counseling as well as specific nutrient supplementation.
Nutritional Cleansing and Ionic Detoxifying ... Many pain syndromes are largely due to symptoms of toxin buildup. A consultation with our cleanse coach will help address this consideration. These treatments can help in unusual situations like fibromyalgia, where other

Education/Training
Post-graduate:
Certified Chiropractic Sports Physician: After a few years in practice, Dr. Shaw was working with quite a few clients with sports and weighlifitng injuries, and he decided to pursue further training and certification in this specialized field. In a year of grueling post-graduate training through Logan Chiropractic College and the American Chiropractic Association's Council on Sports Injuries, Dr. Shaw earned his CCSP degree. Specific diagnostic protocols and treatment techniques are emphasized in this year long training program. This specialized knowledge allows Dr. Shaw to offer advanced help for those with new or chronic injuries, whether from new or old sports injuries, and translates to helping athletes and weeked warriors alike. Dr. Shaw works with many of Tucson's most elite fitness instructors, personal trainers, and their clients. He is known to many trainers as "the shoulder doctor" due to the success he achieves with chronic weight training problems.
WHIPLASH AND SPINAL TRAUMA CERTIFICATION: To further enhance his post-graduate training, and offer his clients the most eclectic approach to diagnostic and treatment protocols, Dr. Shaw enrolled with the prestigious Spine Research Institute of San Diego for another year-long post graduate training program. The SRISD Whiplash and Spinal Trauma training has been invaluable to Dr. Shaw and his clients, helping them to recover faster and be more informed about the long-term, often devastating effects of whiplash and spinal trauma caused in motor vehicle collisions.
ON-GOING CONTINUING EDUCATION:
In yearly seminars, Dr. Shaw has focused on important topics such as Research reviews, Assessment and Treatment of Cervical Spine Injuries, further Sports Injury training, a variety of Nutritional Weight Loss programs, and many other topics. Our support staff are all trained and certified as Chiropractic Health Assistants and/or Licensed Massage Therapists, and undergo continuing education as well.
