A 56 year old runner experienced worsening back pain after a run.  Spine specialist, Dr. Shawn Nelson explains the cause of his pain and his road to recovery.

About Dr. Nelson

My journey to becoming a Chiropractor began with me as a patient in my early teens.  I was being treated for some debilitating migraine headaches that would take my vision from me.  The care I was receiving significantly reduced this.  

I finished my education graduating from Palmer College of Chiropractic in Iowa March of 2002.  I have practiced in Michigan continuously since then.  My wife and I have 2 boys and a girl which keeps us very active.  I have been helping to coach my son’s wrestling club in the winters as well. 

I have treated every type of patient possible from all 3 of my kids within 2 hours of their birth, to professional athletes, to motor vehicle injuries, to my oldest a fascinating 110 year old woman who was a burlesque dancer in Paris France in World War II.  Given my own experiences in athletics, with my own significant injuries, I have a wealth of experience in treating all aspects of the spine.  I also have a specialized technique for treatment of the shoulder.  I employ over 10 techniques for adjusting the spine, and work tirelessly to find the technique that is right for each patient.  I utilize a mechanically vitalistic view of the body.  It is a beautiful machine that can do amazing things functionally, but only if it’s structure (the spine) is in its optimum condition.
