Chiropractic Treatments


Showing compassion and improving the lives of our patients is our number one priority. That’s why we take the time needed to listen to your needs and determine if chiropractic aid is right for you.

An in-depth initial consultation is conducted in order for the doctor to get a better picture of your overall health concerns and to discuss your specific health goals.

Our goal is to inform and empower you to make the best decision for you and your family. We offer a complimentary consultation without a commitment to care. So you have nothing to lose - except for the pain that is keeping you from living your optimal life. To make an appointment for a no-pressure conversation, please contact us at (949) 263-0270.


We pride ourselves on developing an individualized care plan for each patient. Our customized approach includes performing an advanced and complete orthopedic, neurological, and chiropractic examination to uncover the causes of your health concerns.

Therapeutic Massage

Massage therapy focuses on the muscles, fasciae, and surrounding tissues, easing pain, stiffness, and fatigue, reducing muscle tension, and promoting flexibility to prevent further injury. Modern lifestyles tend to have a detrimental effect on the muscular skeletal system.

Most of us spend extended amounts of time sitting behind a desk or standing up at work for long hours, which will shorten or lengthen the muscle fibers. Massage can help relieve day-to-day stiffness and pain, repetitive strain injury, tension and fatigue.

If you have tired, sore muscles resulting from stress or even injury, your massage therapist can customize a progressive massage therapy program to meet your specific wellness needs to reduce pain, increase range of motion, and bring overall improvement to the way your body moves and functions.

Deep Tissue Massage

Deep tissue massage therapy focuses on the deepest layers of muscles, tendons, and fasciae to release muscle tension. It is done at a slow pace so that the therapist can treat acute or chronic knots and adhesions.

Trigger Point Massage

Trigger points are pockets of toxins, tender areas in a muscle brought on by physical or emotional stresses. This causes the muscles to shorten, which results in pulling on the bone and possible misalignment of the spine. Pressure on these areas causes muscle pain and/or can refer pain to other areas. The treatment consists of cycles of isolated pressure and release with a well-established pattern.

Myofascial Release (MFR)

Myofascial Release is a safe and very effective massage technique that is often used to treat chronic back pain, neck pain, and shoulder pain. It consists of applying gentle, sustained pressure into the muscles and related connective tissue to eliminate pain and restore motion.

Bowen Massage

The Bowen technique is therapeutic soft tissue massage aimed at restoring function of the body and in turn facilitating the body’s innate capacity to self-regulate and heal. Fascia in nature has piezoelectric properties.

Bowen moves are designed to maximize the generation of small electrical currents within the fascia called acupoints with similar effects to acupuncture. These electric currents have a beneficial influence on body’s physiology resulting in a drop in tension and may result in the clearing of the cycle of disturbance and restoration of the function of the central nervous system.

Bowen moves are performed using the thumbs and fingers, applying noninvasive, gentle pressure utilizing a specific process and order.

Low-Level Laser Therapy (LLLT)

Cold Laser Therapy is healing with the use of light. This therapy is not new and was reported to be effective for many conditions by Hippocrates. LLLT has been in medical use for over 30 years and has a long record of successful clinical studies demonstrating medical efficacy and safety.

LLLT is a painless, sterile, non-invasive, drug-free treatment used to improve tissue repair and to reduce acute and chronic pain and inflammation. Cold Laser has been used for many years on sports injuries, arthritic joints, and neurological and pathological conditions.

Around the world, laser therapy is rapidly becoming a medical therapy that can heal wounds and fractures up to 60 percent faster. In the UK, LLLT has become the treatment of choice for soft tissue whiplash injuries and treatment of painful post-herpetic neuralgia (shingles pain).

Microlight was the first company with FDA clearance to market low-level laser therapy (“LLLT”). This laser is used for the non-surgical treatment of pain through adjunctive therapy in patients who suffer with various syndromes.

  • Carpal Tunnel Syndrome.
  • Temporary relief of minor muscle and joint pain.
  • Arthritis and muscle spasm.
  • Temporary relief of stiffness and promotion of muscle tissue relaxation.
  • Temporary increase of local blood circulation allowing patients to have an alternative to drugs and surgery.

Laser treatments take just minutes depending on the condition being treated. LLLT supplies energy to the body in the form of non-thermal photons of lights. These lasers emit no heat, sound, or vibration. During a course of treatment, you don’t feel anything. Instead of generating a thermal effect, LLLT acts by inducing a photochemical reaction in the cell, a process referred to as bio-stimulation or photo-biomodulation, including increased cell metabolism and improved cell metabolism. It also improves blood circulation and vasodilation and has analgesic and anti-inflammatory effects.

Combined with chiropractic care, cold laser can aid in treating muscle, bone, tendon, ligament, neurological dysfunction or damage, connective tissue, or skin tissue. Patients generally see results after two to five treatments. Dr. Shekarriz will develop a treatment plan that is optimal for your condition.


The Electrical Muscle Stimulation

Electronic muscle stimulation (EMS), also known as neuromuscular electrical stimulation or electromyostimulation, is another type of treatment. It works by elicitation of muscle contraction using electric impulses generated by a device and delivered through electrodes placed on the skin near to the muscles being stimulated. The electrodes are generally pads that adhere to the skin. The impulses mimic the action potential that comes from the central nervous system, causing the muscles to contract.

Uses of EMS

  • EMS is often used for several conditions, including relaxing muscle spasms, helping to prevent and retard atrophy from disuse of certain muscles (especially post-surgery or post-traumatic) by stimulating the muscles, increasing or maintaining range of motion, and increasing local circulation.
  • It also helps alleviate acute or chronic pain and inflammation. At high voltage stimulation, it helps with wound healing by changing the type of cells near the wound and speeding up the healing process.
  • EMS also has been utilized as a strength training tool for healthy subjects and athletes or rehabilitation and a preventive tool for partially or immobilized patients.

In the United States, EMS devices are regulated by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.
