As a profession, the primary belief is in natural and conservative methods of health care. Doctors of chiropractic have a deep respect for the human body's ability to heal itself without the use of surgery or medication. These doctors devote careful attention to the biomechanics, structure and function of the spine, its effects on the musculoskeletal and neurological systems, and the role played by the proper function of these systems in the preservation and restoration of health. A Doctor of Chiropractic is one who is involved in the treatment and prevention of disease, as well as the promotion of public health, and a wellness approach to patient healthcare.

By making adjustments to the spinal column, we as Chiropractors, can make a large difference in the functionof the nervous system and therefore the function of the whole body. Dr. Shapiro became a Chiropractor because the Adjustments helped him out of an acute ASTHMA ATTACK and helped him heal from 5 CAR ACCIDENTS in 1 year. Due to the fantastic results of Chiropractic, he had no choice but to become a Chiropractor. Dr. Shapiro feels the profession chose him as much as he chose it.

In summary, Dr. Shapiro's philosophy is holistic. He acknowledges and respects the bodys innate ability to heal itself when stressors are reduced and eliminated.
