In high school, Dr. Shane suffered from asthma and digestive issues that affected the sports he loved and his daily life. After being under consistent chiropractic care, Dr. Shane noticed not only were his aches and pains gone, but so were his respiratory and digestive issues.   It was then that Dr. Shane knew he wanted to help others find healing from the inside-out through principled chiropractic care.  His passion is to help families find hope, get well, and make informed decisions about their health, and thrive in life through principled chiropractic corrective care.
