Dr. Shane's chiropractic approach
Dr. Shane's chiropractic approach is a blend of various techniques & influences along with his experience having cared for thousands of patients around the globe. He is known for his gentle touch & effective adjustments helping patients achieve their health goals. After a physical examination, adjustments are performed by hand and/or instrumentation (adjusting tools) based on patient needs.
The Zone technique aims to balance your brain to then heal your body. When the brain centers and systems of the body, also known as Zones, are in sync your body functions better in everyday life. Adjustments can be performed by hand and/or adjusting tools. Think of it like restarting your computer when it’s acting funny.
The Zone Technique was developed in the 1930's as a method of addressing disturbances in the body by balancing its 6 main systems, also known as Zones. This approach is a spinal cord stimulation technique that sends signals from the spine (negative pole of the nerve system) up to the brain (positive pole of the nerve system). Each system has a corresponding part of the brain that regulates that system. By stimulating the spinal cord with a specific adjustment, systems of the body can be targeted for treatment.
This method is taught by Dr. Pete Goldman, D.C. Dr. Shane spent years mentoring under Dr. Goldman at his clinic, now located in Berkeley, CA.
