MEET DR. SHAW

Dr. Steven Shaw
Director and Chiropractic Orthopedist
After over a quarter of a century treating injured patients I’ve come to appreciate that every patient is unique even though many have similar injuries. At the Shaw Chiropractic Group offices we treat every patient as an individual with unique needs. We do everything we can to meet their needs and expectations.
