As a young man, Doctor of Chiropractic Korosh Shakeri was a rugby player, and like many athletes playing full-contact sports, he was subjected to a number of hard collisions. His resulting injuries inspired him to become involved in chiropractic studies. At Life Chiropractic College West, he focused his studies in neurology training. Today, Dr. Shakeri specializes in treating ailing athletes, including football, tennis, and soccer players.
At Berkeley Chiropractic Clinic, Dr. Shakeri’s services emphasize the whole-person approach. All first visits include a consultation to address persistent health or lifestyle concerns. Using this information, Dr. Shakeri and his staff can map a blueprint of chiropractic treatments, corrective exercises, or nutritional counseling to treat these issues. In addition, massage-therapy treatments aim to alleviate muscle pain and swelling and help people to recover from athletic injuries and gigs as a grand-piano mover.
They say the body is a temple, but treating it like one is a challenge. The chiropractors, sports-medicine practitioners, and physical therapists at Innersport Chiropractic help keep active bodies in top shape by providing holistic healing and preventive services. By conducting client histories and video analyses of athletes in motion, the team can determine the underlying causes of muscle pain or help athletes train to compete at a higher level. Massages and adjustments are also at the core of the center's practices, helping active people get back on their feet without medicine or surgery.
A simple adjustment of one’s spine can affect the entire body. Migraines dissipate, lower-back pain starts to melt away, and even arthritic joints begin to feel better. Routine adjustments help keep pain in check, almost as well as wearing clothes made only out of bubble wrap. At The Joint, experienced chiropractors work out subluxations and rectify spines with their walk-in services, caring for regular exercisers, athletes, and anyone experiencing bodily pain or limited function.
Dr. Rina Tinozzi really likes getting people out of pain. She works with everyone from athletes to new moms, using gentle spinal adjustments and trigger-point therapy to combat headaches, chronic shoulder or knee pain, and sciatica. Every visit includes a trigger-point massage before the chiropractic adjustment in order to both relax patients and release any lactic acid built up in the body. In fact, relaxation is so important to Dr. Tinozzi that she encourages patients to remain on the adjustment table for a few restful minutes or take a slow walk in the park behind the office.
Dr. Tinozzi says most of her patients are relieved of their chronic pain within three to six visits. Still, she encourages them to follow up with wellness and maintenance care to prevent the practices that started the condition in the first place and to continue discussions about which vice president was the best looking (Mondale).
With five locations throughout the Bay Area, including two in San Francisco, Fitness SF caters to the needs of fitness enthusiasts and casual exercisers from Marin to Oakland. Each center brims with muscle-toning and pulse-raising equipment, allowing visitors a wide choice of activities, from pumping free weights to using ellipticals equipped with personal viewing screens.
Although personal trainers are on hand to help refine technique and design individualized exercise regimens, the gyms' classes encourage guests to work out in a more communal setting. Yoga and Zumba appear on every class schedule, but instructors at each location incorporate their own additional sessions, such as cardio kickboxing, Bollywood dance, and Pilates mat.
All five locations stay open until as late as midnight on select weekdays, which leaves plenty of time for a post-workout cooldown in the locker rooms.
