As the official chiropractor to the University of San Francisco athletic department, Doctor of Chiropractic Dan Shapero leans on his experience with reducing pain, improving posture, and undoing the negative effects of desk jobs in both athletes and office workers for more than 17 years. Here, he offers an array of adjustment methods to suit the needs and requests of all kinds of patients. The diversified technique relies on a hands-on analysis of the joints along with manual thrusts to correct misalignments. Low-force adjustments involve a lighter touch to achieve balance in the body, whereas the clinic's spinal-decompression table slowly and gently stretches and releases the spine through mechanized traction.
