Diving Into the World of Chiropractic

While in college, Dr. Shepherd was a competitive springboard diver. During a practice one day, he hit the water the wrong way and injured his back. “I was in a lot of pain. I saw my family doctor, who gave me pain pills and muscle relaxers. They didn’t lessen the pain at all. My coach suggested that I see a chiropractor. I took his advice, and it changed my life. I had tremendous results in a very short time. I knew then that instead of becoming a dentist, I wanted to be a chiropractor.”

A Proud Palmer Graduate

Dr. Shepherd received his Doctor of Chiropractic degree from the prestigious Palmer College of Chiropractic in Davenport, Iowa. “This profession appeals to me on so many levels. I love helping people in a way that allows the body to heal itself. It’s priceless.” Over the years, Dr. Shepherd has become a national expert in a highly respected technique called Activator Methods®. He’s a senior clinical instructor with an advanced proficiency rating. It’s his passion to travel all over the US and Canada training other doctors. He’s also Webster-certified to help moms-to-be have an optimal pregnancy.
