NEUROLOGY – Dr. Shan has received his Certification in Chiropractic Clinical Neurology (C.C.C.N). This certification warrants that he has completed an accredited course of graduate study and clinical work in the care and treatment of neurological conditions. He also continues with the Carrick Institute for Graduate Studies for his Neurology Diplomat. Through these studies he is kept current on many cutting edge neurological treatment protocols for a wide variety of conditions, such as: vertigo (dizziness), migraine headaches, sciatica pain, seizures, cerebral palsy, tremors, strokes, double vision and many more.
PEDIATRICS – Dr. Shan has spent numerous hours studying pediatrics which has given him an insight to the crucial timeline that children face in growth and development from utero, birth, infants, and toddlers through to adolescents. He has been able to understand the signs of improper development and how to help children correct these developmental delays for lasting results, for conditions such as: torticollis (head is tilted to one side predominately), colic, autism, constipation, rashes (eczema), not crawling long enough, not sleeping through the night and bottom scooting.
INDIVIDUALIZED NUTRITIONAL PROGRAMS – Dr. Shan continues to pursue interests in Nutrition and its role in providing for optimal health from the inside-out. While furthering his education in the field of nutrition and continually looking for ways to integrate this with chiropractic, neurology, and pediatrics he has created a healthy balanced lifestyle program. This is a complete 15 week Therapeutic Lifestyle Program which is prescribed to patients. This program has achieved phenomenal corrective results with patients that suffer from high cholesterol, high blood pressure, diabetes, metabolic syndrome, irritable bowel syndrome, leaky gut syndrome, gastro esophageal reflux disease (GERD), food allergies, weight loss, inhalant allergies (dirt, dust & dander), INFLAMMATORY CONDITIONS, ‘too many medications syndrome’, just to name a few.
SPINAL CORRECTION – In 2005 Dr. Shan was searching for a spinal corrective model to complete his system for patient care when he was invited to attend an Elite Coaching seminar. When he heard Dr. Fred speak about Pettibon, a spinal corrective system that revolves around the neurological components of the body, he set his pursuits in that direction. He joined Elite as a lifetime member and attended the Pettibon Institute. After researching and learning about Pettibon he successfully integrated the Pettibon Technique into his practice. From that point forward he has been successfully delivering unprecedented long term results to his patients. Common problems that have be corrected through this system are: scoliosis, short leg syndrome, head forward syndrome, postural distortions (high/low ear, shoulder, hip), Temporomandibular Joint (TMJ), bulging discs, herniated discs and that just starts the list.
COACHING/TEACHING – Dr. Shan has been successfully fulfilling his mission to find answers and give patients an opportunity for correcting their health problems and is driven to have other doctors fulfill theirs. He is known for the type of programs he prescribes and his ability to communicate these programs to his patients. His purpose is to change the healthcare industry by not only treating patients but also by teaching, coaching and inspiring other doctors to achieve their optimal potential. This can all be accomplished through the proven systems of Answers!, Pettibon and Dr. Shan’s unique perspective and clinical expertise.
