Chi­ro­prac­tic is a remark­able heal­ing ther­a­py for RECOVERY from acci­dents, injuries, trau­mas, and for pre­ven­tive WELLNESS. Chi­ro­prac­tic strength­ens the IMMUNE SYSTEM by decreas­ing stress in the body which direct­ly influ­ences the NERVOUS SYSTEM and pro­motes heal­ing. Chi­ro­prac­tic accom­pa­nied by increas­ing mus­cle flex­i­bil­i­ty, stretch­ing, diet, exer­cise, edu­ca­tion, and your com­pli­ance can change your qual­i­ty of life. Are you inter­est­ed?

Dr. Shaar’s patients ben­e­fit from her exper­tise derived from an inte­grat­ed edu­ca­tion­al back­ground of clin­i­cal neu­rol­o­gy, chi­ro­prac­tic health care, ther­a­peu­tic mas­sage and exten­sive ath­let­ic his­to­ry. This allows her to assess patients’ health care from a whole-body per­spec­tive and pro­mote health from a holis­tic approach. While sup­port­ing the body in heal­ing itself, Dr. Shaar edu­cates the patient about their body and the heal­ing process. Dr. Shaar has a pas­sion for encour­ag­ing patients to become respon­si­ble for the con­di­tion of their body. The high inten­si­ty and quick fix­es preva­lent in today’s soci­ety make it easy to become dis­con­nect­ed from one’s body on many lev­els; emo­tion­al­ly, men­tal­ly, phys­i­cal­ly and spir­i­tu­al­ly. The goal is bal­ance with health and all the oth­er areas of life.

Dr. Shaar works with each patient indi­vid­u­al­ly, design­ing a treat­ment plan and an edu­ca­tion­al pro­file that helps the patient increase their qual­i­ty of life. The treat­ment plan could con­sist of many dif­fer­ent modal­i­ties, such as chi­ro­prac­tic adjust­ments, mas­sage ther­a­py, ther­a­peu­tic stretch­ing, TheraS­tim treat­ment, and/or cold laser. Edu­ca­tion is always a key to any type of health­care, which will enable the patient to under­stand how to con­tin­ue a bet­ter lev­el of care.

Dr. Shaar uti­lizes a wealth of ath­let­ic expe­ri­ence, edu­ca­tion, sem­i­nars, and knowl­edge to provide the best pos­si­ble care for her patients’ indi­vid­u­al recov­ery and well­ness needs. If you, a fam­i­ly mem­ber, friend, or co-worker have been in an acci­dent, have an injury or trau­ma that still both­ers you today give her a call. If you are look­ing for a pre­ven­tive health­care that focus­es on well­ness give her a call. You will nev­er know until you call.
