Meet the Doctor
Before you come in, though, you will probably want to know a little bit about me. So let me tell you…

I graduated Magna Cum Laude from Sherman College of Chiropractic in 1980, in the top 5 of my class of 90 students.

My 35 years of practice has been rather extraordinary; traveling and speaking around the world for a variety of Chiropractic Continuing Ed seminars; and serving on the Board of Directors of two National and two State Chiropractic Organizations; owning and operating the largest natural health care center in Northwest Tucson.

Our Center has been an original participant in the U of A's Andrew Weil Program for Integrative Medicine, as an externship site for their Medical Interns. In these years we have worked successfully with thousands of men, women and children of all ages, helping them to better health and more productive lives.

Does Chiropractic Really Work?
Absolutely! Here are some findings from studies done by chiropractors and orthopedic surgeons…

Harvard Medical School Health Letter

September, 1990- "Chiropractic treatment of low back pain, which affects 75 million Americans, is superior to the standard regimen administered by medical doctors", a major British study has concluded. "Chiropractic almost certainly confers worthwhile long-term benefit in comparison with hospital outpatient management," said Dr. T.W. Meade, a British medical doctor who headed the study conducted at eleven hospitals and chiropractic clinics.

Federal Medical Study Endorses Chiropractic For Back Pain 

December 8, 1994 - A panel of 23 doctors headed by Dr. Stanley Bigos, M.D., professor of Orthopedic Surgery, studied 3900 medical articles on low back pain. Their conclusions were that "chiropractor's manipulation of the spine was more helpful than any of the following: traction, massage, biofeedback, acupuncture, injection of steroids into the spine, back corsets and ultrasound." Surgery was beneficial in only 1 out of 100 cases!

Would you like even more proof that chiropractic works? Then listen to these
comments from a few of my patients…

Patient Success Stories

"I suffered from low back pain for over two years and tried other doctors, treatments and medications before coming to Dr. Shochat. My back problem is now a thing of the past. I find I can run more than 2 miles, and I wake up in the morning without pain."
Sincerely, Rebecca

"Since birth, my little boy had chronic asthma, a constant "barking" cough, food sensitivities, and was unable to sleep for more than 2-4 hours at a time. We tried prescription drugs, including steroids, and had many emergency room visits. When Tate was 14 months old, we found Dr. Shochat. Now he sleeps all night, eats anything and keeps it down. He doesn't get short of breath anymore and is a very healthy and content little boy."
Sincerely, Sylvia
