Tampa, FL |
WOW - what an amazing experience I had while visiting with Dr. Richard Shaker. First, I was greeted by friendly and knowledgeable staff. With minimal wait time, I got to speak with Dr. Shaker regarding the weakening strength in my hand. I was told by other doctors that I would need to have extensive treatment to even start addressing my symptoms. But with the Trigenics treatment, I experiencing symptom relief and increasing strength back in my hand. I am extremely grateful to have been referred

I had been to traditional doctors and treated by 2 different chiropractors before being referred to Dr. Shaker by a friend. I was in constant pain and had been told that surgery would be the only way to control the chronic discomfort. I am so appreciative that my friend convinced me to give Trigenics a chance. Dr. Shaker has completely transformed my life. I am no longer in pain and will definitely not be having surgery!

Dr Shaker provides a top sense of professionalism in what he does. He is at the foremost of research, technique and talent. Dr. Shakers diagnosis and treatment is next to none. From painful movements to painful joints, I have recommended other top athletes, family and friends to Dr. Shaker. It's because of Dr. Shakers gift that I can perform at an advanced level and sincerely appreciate all he does.

I was suffering for many months with a pain in my thumb that radiated up into my wrist. It was dull pain at times, but would randomly be very sharp and irritating, to the point that I would have to hold pressure on it and not move it for a few hours. Sometimes It was on my dominant hand, and I couldn't even open a water bottle, or text, I would have to switch hands. He treated me, and it was immediately feeling better. Now after a month, I have never had ANY recurring pain, and I am so thankful

What an amazing skill he has (and all the crazy & wonderful state-of-the art tools he uses). He whipped me right into shape w/in weeks. Now I'm back, stronger than ever and feeling Fantastic all because of Dr Shaker. I love training, in particularly in weight training, experienced radial nerve entrapment that really limited my progress. As a nurse anesthetist i have access to many doctors & therepists unable to help. Dr. Shaker and the use of his Trigenics System prevented me from having surgery

Dr. Shaker helped relieve the extreme pain I had in my lower back. I have the utmost confidence in his ability to cure the most severe spinal and joint issues. His uses a state of the art technique called trigenics to prevent surgery or help people who have had surgeries avoid having more! His staff is great and I never have to wait long to get seen!

I have had terrible pain in my knee for a months from exercising and I heard about Dr.Shaker and how he works miracles. So I had to see for myself! When I came in he told me about a technique called Trigenics and after a few sessions, i felt improvement. The office environment was very welcoming & the receptionist was extremely helpful & friendly. I would definitely recommend Dr.Shaker to everyone.

On October of 2016, I suffered a serious hamstring injury doing a sumo deadlift. I did physical therapy and saw various doctors, including 2 chiropractors who all gave me the same diagnosis, I felt defeated and discouraged because I was not able to train to full potential. Five months later, I came across an article who featured Dr. Richard Shaker, and his use of the TRIGENICS treatment. After my first session I was already out of complete pain! Nothing I have ever experienced before.

I wish more people realized how important it is to see a chiropractor & get adjustments. I use to struggle from horrible back pain, it got so bad I could barely sleep at night, always consistently tossing & turning. But just after a few sessions I feel brand new. Not only can I sleep better at night, I no longer have those annoying aches & pains. It also helped improve my health & has made it easier for me to be more active. So if you've been dealing with pain in your back, neck, extremities or

Patient beware. I saw Shaker yesterday for a $200 1-hr chiropractic appointment, but the service I was to receive was misrepresented at best, as mid-session I was told by Shaker that he was performing a $600 "Trigenics" treatment. I felt like it was a bait and switch. I walked out with the same lower back pain I walked in with, and was charged $650 for a 30-minute session. I consider that a pretty horrific rip-off. While "Trigenics" may not be snake oil, I feel cheated.

personally, I have gone to Dr Shaker for over 20 years. So have many of my family members. I was a collegiate and professional athlete; been to many physicians and trainers. Dr Shaker has treated me with trigenics and helped me avoid three surgeries over the past 10 years. Two knee and one shoulder. I have lupus and EDS; I am very confident in his diagnostics, treatments, and remedies. I recommend him to high school athletes all the way to elderly folks who need routine adjustments.

In the past five years, I've had trouble sleeping. Tossing and turning every night, my energy levels affected my productivity during the day. Often times, pain would flare up from my mid-back and move up to my neck - causing migraines. Dr. Shaker released the pain around my spine, neck, and back. In just two treatments, Dr. Shaker improved my quality of sleep and inherently enhanced my energy level. I flew in from Columbus, Ohio to seek treatment from Dr. Shaker.

Dr Shaker is experienced and efficient about getting quick relief and maintaining good function without lots of long drawn out expensive appointments and tests.
in Tampa, FL |
After dealing with lower back and hip pains for over ten years and dealing with conventional chiropractors (snap and twist) brought no real relief. After 2 visits with Dr Shaker I can now say I'm virtually pain free and have a lot more range of motion than in years past.
I would give Dr Shaker 10 stars if I could. He has been such a blessing in the recovery ,as well as maintenance ,of my son throughout his high school career. Dr Shaker continues to take care of any needs RayRay has as a college athlete. Hands down the best in the business!!

I have and will continue to recommend Dr. Shaker to anyone seeking real answers for quick and lasting pain relief!
