I discovered the activator technique of chiropractic treatment in Georgia in 2008. After over 20 years of trying many methods, it is the only method I will allow to be used on my body. Dr. Shaw is the only Advance Proficiency Activator Certified Chiropractor within 50 miles of my home! So, I drive an hour to see him as often as thrice a week when my back goes out. He and his staff are extremely professional and friendly. They work with me to keep my treatments within my budget and always make me feel welcome and important. If you have avoided chiropractic care because you don't like the idea of forced manipulation, then you should check out the activator technique, which is pain-free, based in science, with observable results.
