Get rid of your pain and optimize your energy and posture
I am your Irvine Chiropractor who focuses on getting rid of your pain and helps optimize your energy and posture. I firmly believe that reducing symptoms gives us at Irvine Spine and Wellness Center a job to educate our patients on the importance of looking beyond symptoms and to look at causes of those symptoms. Educating creates our career but enhancing the way others live their lives produces our legacy. My team and I have established a reputation of being pioneers in our Irvine community with a style of practice that has the health of the patient and not political health trends as our goal. My specialty is Brain-based Neurology and Posture to help determine the postural and balance map of the brain which helps detect the areas that have weakened as a result of lifestyle. This is crucial not only to get rid of the pain but to know exactly what exercises will help prevent future issues.
As your Irvine Chiropractor for over 20 years, I enjoy our wide range of patients who come from all planes of life including the Equestrian world. Being a horse rider and seeing the importance of balance on the horse for safety and competition reasons, I teach postural strength and biomechanical awareness to everyone including my Equestrians. I have had the pleasure of having my own radio show, “Health Matters with Dr. Shakib,” for more than three years which covered alternatives to conventional medicine. I am a huge fan of Functional Fitness and prevention and have my own Youtube channel packed with short videos on health related, DIY exercises. This library of videos is referenced many times throughout the care of my patients and certainly available to my non-patients as well.
Twice a month, I interview 2 experts in the fields of health and preventative care on the specific health subject for that month which is then shared on my clinic FB page for educational purposes. Once again, prevention is the focus at my clinic and all resources are available to the general public. I am an active member of the Irvine community, performing Wellness and Prevention lectures at companies, Health Fairs and schools. I am dedicated to sharing the truth about health which we unfortunately do not find on media platforms. I also provide community awareness lectures at my wellness clinic in Irvine, discussing commonly known health conditions.
My Personal Outlook
I practice what I preach and start my day with positive affirmation, drive to work listening to uplifting audios, laugh and make people laugh, exercise, get adjusted and eat organic food that is based on my Metabolic Typing. I finally end my day by mentally thanking life and myself for the wonderful day I had.
Let’s remember that what happens tomorrow is the direct result of functions and actions we take today! If you are “sick and tired” of being sick and tired, want to not be a “sick old” elder but a graceful elderly, if you want to see your children be healthy and happy now and when they are older, you need to take control of your health. I am prepared to show you the way if you are willing to ask questions and be an active participant in your life. Be proactive not reactive! Give our Irvine chiropractic office a call today.
What kind of doctors are they if they don’t give any medicine?
It was curiosity that got me interested in chiropractic. After all, I was used to thinking of medicine being the ‘cure’ for all. When I looked into chiropractic, I was intrigued by how simple, yet profound its root was: Follow nature’s rules and you win, break nature’s rules and you lose! I learned it was not any medicine deficiency that caused dis-ease and disease and that there was more to health than what media and Big Pharma made it to be.
I chose Los Angeles College of Chiropractic (LACC) for multiple reasons, the most important of which being its high academic emphasis.
I wanted to know the different diseases that I probably was not going to treat as a chiropractor; I wanted to know everything about everything (something I am known for!) and LACC allowed me to learn what Medical Doctors learned in school. After all, if I knew from the very beginning that was going to educate people on what to do to avoid medicine, I needed to learn how medicine worked.
Later on, I learned that to truly embrace the concept of the chiropractic LIFESTYLE, I had to learn about the other two angles of the triangle of health. It was then that I proceeded to learn about Functional Medicine, assessing each system and organ in the body while interpreting its impact on the rest of the body and later Meridian talk therapy (EFT).
The latter explored the impact of mental component of health which is so often missed by even alternative health practitioners including many chiropractors. I find satisfaction in knowing that I am a true Chiropractor. This deepened the fulfillment of my title, knowing that Doctor meant teacher.
