Get rid of your pain and improve posture and movement


 While licensed in Chiropractic, my focus in practice is beyond the spine and into the impact of our body’s movement (right or wrong) on the brain and then how to change the wrong patterns of movement into the ‘right’ patterns of movement that our body is programmed to do. We are talking about Postural Neurology and Functional Movement. 

At Irvine Spine and Wellness Center, reducing symptoms gives a job, educating our patients on the importance of finding the CAUSE creates our career but enhancing the way others live their lives produces our legacy. My team and I have established a reputation for being pioneers in our Irvine community with a style of practice that has the health of the patient and not political health trends as our goal. My specialty in Brain-based Neurology and Posture helps determine the posture and balance map of the brain which helps detect the areas that have weakened as a result of lifestyle. Watch this video to learn how.

Next is to make sure the rehabilitated area of pain now knows how to work with the rest of the body. Movement is a concert that the musicians knowing their musical instrument does not assure a world class performance. The timing and synchronicity in movement are so important and the is no better way to do that than what we were programmed to do at birth. Functional Movement based on Developmental Kinesiology is how we do it at Irvine Spine and Wellness Center.

As your Irvine Chiropractor for over 20 years, I enjoy our wide range of patients who come from all planes of life including the Equestrian world. Being a horse rider and seeing the importance of balance on the horse for safety and competition reasons, I teach postural strength and bio-mechanical awareness to everyone including my Equestrians. I have had the pleasure of having my own radio show, “Health Matters with Dr. Shakib,” for more than three years which covered alternatives to conventional medicine. I am a huge fan of Functional Fitness and prevention and have my own Youtube channel packed with short videos on health related, DIY exercises. This library of videos is referenced many times throughout the care of my patients and certainly available to my non-patients as well. 

On my podcast, ‘Life and Health Matters with Dr. Shakib’ found on your favorite podcast platform, I interview experts on not health but all aspects of life. There is more to life than the jobs we participate in. What is YOUR purpose in being born and how are YOU impacting others?

I am an active member of the Irvine community, performing Wellness and Prevention lectures at companies, and in-office Workshops. I am dedicated to sharing the truth about health which we unfortunately do not find on media platforms.

What kind of doctors are they if they don’t give any medicine?

“It was curiosity that got me interested in chiropractic. After all, I was used to thinking of medicine being the ‘cure’ for all. When I looked into chiropractic, I was intrigued by how simple, yet profound its root was: Follow nature’s rules and you win, break nature’s rules and you lose! I learned it was not any medicine deficiency that caused dis-ease and disease and that there was more to health than what media and Big Pharma made it to be.” Irvine Chiropractor Dr Shakib

Chiropractic Education

I chose Los Angeles College of Chiropractic (LACC) for multiple reasons, the most important of which being its high academic emphasis.

I wanted to know the different diseases that I probably was not going to treat as a chiropractor; I wanted to know everything about everything (something I am known for!) and LACC allowed me to learn what Medical Doctors learned in school. After all, if I knew from the very beginning that was going to educate people on what to do to avoid medicine, I needed to learn how medicine worked.

Later on, I learned that to truly embrace the concept of the chiropractic LIFESTYLE, I had to learn about the other two angles of the triangle of health. It was then that I proceeded to learn about Functional Medicine, assessing each system and organ in the body while interpreting its impact on the rest of the body, Metabolic Typing and later Meridian talk therapy (EFT). The latter explored the impact of mental component of health which is so often missed by even alternative health practitioners including many chiropractors. I find satisfaction in knowing that I am a true Chiropractor. This deepened the fulfillment of my title, knowing that Doctor meant teacher.
