"After years of having headaches almost everyday, I was referred to Dr. Shapiro. 8 treatments later my headaches are pretty much gone. I would suggest anyone in need of pain relief in the back/neck see Dr. Shapiro. He not only is a wonderful doctor who achieves great results, but he’s a great person too. Thank You.” -Jessica Wright
“I am a very busy aerobic instructor, sometimes teaching and taking as many as 8 classes a week. Dr. Shapiro’s care has enabled me to stay at the top of my field and to continue my rigorous training. Without chiropractic care I would not be able to work at the capacity I do.” -Joanne Renzi
"Before going to Dr. Shapiro, I couldn't figure out why I was having frequent headaches.
Come to find out I was putting too much stress on my neck and back,
causing these headaches. After the initial visit with Dr. Shapiro my
headaches were gone. Visiting Dr. Shapiro weekly really makes a
difference. I am able to work out after my adjustment and still feel
great the next day!" -Nicole Sessions
"Dr. Shapiro is very soft, kind and caring
for his patients to get better. I am doing a lot better since he work
on me. I would recommend anybody with a problem to visit him." -Mary Salloum
“Dr. Shapiro ROCKS! Not only is he a great chiropractor, but he's a great guy. He is very through and takes the time to really understand what your issues are BEFORE he starts cracking away at your bones. He is a constant learner, so he is a wealth of knowledge when it comes to various pain relieving techniques; Eastern, Western and the like. I have really appreciated his advice and his treatment and I would highly recommend him to anyone who has visited chiropractors and run screaming from their offices. Dr. Shapiro will have you totally at ease and will always make sure you are comfortable with whatever he is doing. I have this crazy fear of neck cracking, so he always leaves my neck alone. Even if you don't have insurance, he'll work with you. He's a fair and honest guy. And he's a lot less "crack happy" than the other chiropractors I've visited. He genuinely cares about making you feel better! Permanently!” -Becky Oot
"I have lived on three different continents during the course of my life. First in Italy (where my migraine headaches began in my early teens), then in Venezuela (where the migraines grew progressively worse) and finally in Philadelphia, PA (where working extremely long hours to support my family did a number on my back and nerves). I suffered terribly for over 45 years from headaches and sciatica nerve pain in my leg and it was only after meeting Dr. Shapiro by sheer coincidence (more like my prayers being answered!) that I was able to get serious pain relief to help me to live a more peaceful life and to be able to enjoy life without the overwhelming pain that causes many human beings to turn to strong painkillers. In a few short sessions, Dr. Shapiro not only got rid of my migraines permanently, but also my leg pain. I tell everyone this human being is not a "chiropractor" at all.... I call Dr. Shapiro a "Miracle Doctor"! I refer all my friends and acquaintances to him without hesitation. My entire family is greatly indebted to Dr. Craig Shapiro (both sons, both daughters, daughter-in-law) for his amazing and gentle healing practices. So many of our problems go untreated and undiscovered by most mainstream "doctors" and "chiropractors" but Dr. Shapiro knows that a lot of our human suffering pertains to the well-being of our spine, muscular and nervous system. I owe him so much and am eternally grateful." -Tina Fede
"I am a 70-year-old woman who has a number of different conditions which contribute to pain - both chronic and at times acute. I have spinal stenosis, protruding discs caused by 2 auto accidents, severe arthritis, and a slight curvature of the spine. When I first came to see Craig my condition was acute. It was painful to sit which made it difficult to drive and for some reason almost impossible to sit at my computer. It affected so many areas of my life. The pain radiated from my low back all the way down my left leg into my toes. My leg was numb, and, at the same time felt like sharp pins and needles stabbing me. I had tried muscle relaxers, nerve medication and prescription pain drugs, but none of them helped. I went to a pain specialist and had various procedures including epidurals and nerve blocks. Some helped a little, but only for a short time, and then after a while not at all...after several treatments with Craig, I started to feel a difference, and then I realized I could sit more comfortably and then that the pins and needles were gone...over the years I've been treated by several different chiropractors and Craig is the best. I find him to be not only knowledgeable but very caring. He is always learning new modalities and he adjusts his treatment depending on my condition and need at the time. I highly recommend him...I share this with my sincere gratitude to Craig for who he is and the work he does." -Selma Proot
"In the latter years of my life I now realize the importance of chiropractic care. Dr. Shapiro is skilled and knowledgeable in this field. I feel my best when I am consistent with my treatment from proper posture and diminished aches and pains that come with age, his care makes all the difference. Also, my daughter suffered with migraine headaches for 21 years. They were completely relieved since the care she has experienced with Dr. Shapiro." -Linda Curry
"Before I started seeing Dr. Shapiro, I had constant back pain, despite being physically active and fit. Since I started seeing him, my back pain has disappeared. I would encourage anyone who has any back or neck pain to see him. I also had headaches a few times a week, and they are gone as well, since I started seeing Dr. Shapiro." -Susanna Kramer
"I was pregnant and had a lot of lower back pain when I first started to see Dr. Shapiro based upon a friend's recommendation. He helped me get through the rest of my pregnancy and allowed me to continue to work. The office is very relaxing and Dr. Shapiro has a very gentle touch and calming presence." -Huyen Tran
"I have been coming to Dr. Shapiro for several years, including my last pregnancy. My back and neck no longer hurt and my whole body feels better. But coming to Dr. Shapiro is much more than just getting rid of pain. He is so interested in finding new and effective ways to treat patients and he is always looking for strategies and techniques that will make him a more versatile and knowledgeable doctor. Coming to Dr. Shapiro means making a commitment to your own wellness and he is the best guide for that path. In fact, I trust him so much that both of my children, now 4 and 2 have been coming to Dr. Shapiro for several years. Now, whenever I tell my son were going to the doctor, he says, "you mean Dr. Craig?" -Suzanne Simons
"Before coming to see Dr. Shapiro I was constantly getting headaches. After being treated for about 6 weeks I no longer have headaches and feel great! Thanks a million!" -Barry Carr

"I love Dr. Shapiro. He has helped me with not only my back but also my feet! yes, my feet. He uses one of his gadgets (he is affectionately known to me and my husband as Dr. Gadget) on my feet and he makes them feel all better. Dr. Shapiro is genuine human being who truly cares for his patients. If he hasn't seen you in a while, he will call to check up on you just to make sure that everything is all right. Dr. Shapiro is one of the good guys!" -Jodi Barilotti
"Being with Dr. Shapiro has been a wonderful experience for me. The aches and pains from my neck, shoulders, back and lower back are gone. It has been wonderful not hurting or aching all day.

Dr. Shapiro is a wonderful chiropractor and he cares about his patients."-Sharon Burns
“My back was injured making an arrest and had developed constant head, neck and lower back pain which kept me on strong pain killers for 7 years.

"After 20 years of intense muscular spasm and pain in my upper back and years of doctors claiming they couldn't do anything for it or that it would just go away, I came to Dr. Shapiro.

"I am a resident of South Philly that has been doing manual labor most of my life. Heading in to my 30's I would regret waking up in the morning. My lower back, ankles and knees were a source of pain and annoyance for hours after waking up. I was always skeptic of chiropractic treatment until I came into the care of Dr. Shapiro. After just a few treatments I noticed a tremendous difference in my levels of pain and discomfort as well as as an improved ability to sleep and work. I HIGHLY recommend Dr. Shapiro." -Paul Minton
"When I was 16 I was in a serious car accident that left me with lifelong injuries to my back causing me almost constant pain.

I no longer live in constant pain and I am back to doing things I haven't been able to do in years..." -Nicolee Gromberg

Several years prior to seeing Dr. Shapiro I had a not so pleasant experience with another chiropractor and was hesitant about seeing Dr. Shapiro. After being treated by Dr. Shapiro I would certainly recommend his services to family and friends." -Bruce Kaplan

"Hi Dr. Shapiro,
I wanted to let you know that I am doing well. You helped me get ready for my trip and I wanted to thank you. I was able to swim the crawl stroke after a bit of practice accompanied with the confidence (you helped me with) to do so. If I have any problems, you will hear from me. I am glad to be a part of the good work that you do." Sincerely,
"I have suffered back pain - especially of the lower lumbar region - since I was eighteen years old. I’ve been to many
doctor’s offices over the years, mostly for pain management; because the diagnosis was eventually raised to
degenerative back disease, I felt there was not much more I could do besides medicate. The slightest and least of
movements could cause my back to ‘go-out’. Simply bending over to pick up a sock might result with three or more
days in bed (often crawling on my hands and knees just performing daily tasks).
Five years ago I started working out at the local gym. Along with my workout I learned certain exercises to strengthen my back.
Yet, the back pain would still occur sporadically, I knew I needed more help.
My name is Mark Wiles and I wish to state: I have been in the Chiropractic care of Dr. Craig Shapiro since, June 30, 2010,
and in that time my back pain is controlled. Dr. Shapiro has, no pun intended, a hands-on the pulse of the patient approach.
At the beginning of each session, Dr. Shapiro will inquire if anything is the same or new concerning my back. The truth is,
I worked in warehousing for years, pounding concrete floors in my army boots. It took a toll. At 52, I still like to get into
The middle of rough situations which tests the meddle of my back. Dr. Shapiro always seems to know the push and shove
of my situational spine.
It’s been a good year and a half for my back…but my boots? Forget it!" -MARK WILES
started seeing Dr. Shapiro a few months ago, and he has turned my body around
and started unlocking the imbalance that was there. He seems to soak in all
that’s going on with your body and find ways to create balance. I have seen chiropractors
and others who work with
for decades- his approach is rare in that I always feel he is seeing you - and
“listening your body” and to your words at least two ways: who/what/where your
body is at that moment and what history is present in your body. Consequently,
each session moves you forward
a better balanced, more productively moving body. He’s great." -Peter
"When I first came in, I had a severe case of bursitis in my right hip and was struggling to do any exercise at all because the pain was so horrible. Dr. Shapiro was able to determine the real reason for my pain and in less than a year, I completed the Insanity workout. He took the time to solve the problem when my orthopedic kept trying to shoot me up with cortisone. One of the best decisions I have made was to come to Dr. Shapiro!" -Lindsey Fletcher
