About Dr. Shapiro and his office...
714 Reed Street
Philadelphia, Pa 19147
Direct Office Line:
I was introduced to chiropractic in 1991 while an undergraduate student at the University of Wisconsin. I was having right lower back pain, spasms and headaches, particularly around exam time. Through chiropractic, I got the relief I was hoping for and was inspired. I went on to graduate from Life Chiropractic College in Marietta, GA. I returned home to Philadelphia in 1998, and soon after, was lucky to meet a very beautiful and caring woman. We married in 2002 and have since been blessed with two wonderful children.
When I am not caring for patients, I enjoy spending time with my family, working out, listening to music and watching sports, especially the Eagles, Sixers, Phillies and Flyers!

Here is some stuff I use...
A table that combines the healing benefits of floatation, heat and massage in a single system. You are fully clothed, comfortably supported and protected by a durable barrier while streams of heated water are directed to the treatment area. Hydromassage is used to relax your body, reduce muscle spasms and increase circulation. For more info www.sidmar.com
A specially designed treatment table used for low back pain and radiating leg pain/numbness. A gentle procedure that tractions the spine and then flexes, passively stretching tight muscles, restoring joint movement and reducing disc protrusion to relieve pressure on the nerve. A very effective, conservative approach to low back and leg pain and an alternative to explore before surgery.
An instrument which gives small, gentle, mechanical impulses into the restricted joint to help break up the tension and restore normal joint movement. This will help reduce or eliminate your pain and increase your range of motion.
A massage instrument for those who suffer from musculoskeletal pain and myofascial syndrome. The clinical benefits are believed to increase the amount of blood and lymphatic circulation by its powerful action of vibration and percussion, decreasing muscle tension and spasm.
Low-level laser therapy is the application of red and near infrared light over injuries or wounds to help control pain, reduce inflammation and accelerate healing of damaged tissue. Low-level therapy uses cold laser light which causes certain photochemical reactions to occur without injuring or damaging cells in any way. The therapy is precise and accurate; and offers safe and effective treatment for a wide variety of conditions.
