As both a doctor and an athlete, Robert Shapiro has worked for years to understand how the two fields connect.

After attending both Logan College of Chiropractic and Palmer College of Chiropractic, Shapiro participated in a long list of postgraduate trainings, ranging from restorative endocrinology to Russian kettlebell rehab. He draws on both sides of his experience to guide the staff at Health Source Chiropractic and Progressive Rehab of Stockton, where they combine massage therapy, rehabilitation, and chiropractic care to help their clients get healthy and stay that way.
