Our Technique

At Shepherd Family Chiropractic, we take great pride in providing the finest chiropractic wellness care to our patients.  Below is a sampling of the different chiropractic services we offer in our Placerville office.

  • Chiropractic Care

    We provide advanced spinal correction utilizing “traditional” chiropractic techniques.  Never in the history of chiropractic have we been able to provide the level of help and expertise that now exists.  These newer correction methods are even safer, more comfortable and more effective than ever before.  As a Doctors of Chiropractic, Dr. Shepherd and Dr. Tsunoda and his staff have years of training and experience in spinal adjustment.

  • Corrective Exercises/Massage Therapy

    We teach our patient’s special “blueprint” exercises designed just for them to help strengthen and correct their own unique problem.  These exercises can be performed in the comfort of your own home and can improve the effectiveness of your spinal condition by as much as 30-40%.  In addition to skeletal misalignment, muscles and connective tissues can be out of place or strained by improper alignment and use.  Specific exercises and stretches can help your body stay in balance and in health.

  • Lifestyle Advice

    We often find it helpful to “coach” our patients on certain activities then should avoid or do differently to avoid aggravating their particular health challenge.  Our goal is to help every patient achieve a fulfilling and happy lifestyle full of the activities they enjoy most.  We recognize that each of our patients are a whole person, and help them reach true health and wellness is a collaborate effort between our professionals and our patients.

  • Nutritional Counseling

    We can provide specific recommendations on nutritional supplements and healthy food choices to enhance our patients return to optimal health.  Do you know which supplement and vitamins are good for you?  Our doctors can provide a structured nutritional program based on your individual needs.
