Dr. Gerald Shaw
Doctor of Chiropractic
Dr. Shaw was a licensed Doctor of Chiropractic who has been freeing people from pain in the Riverdale, Bronx, NY community since 1981 when he created the Shaw Chiropractic Group. He was a graduate of the prestigious National University of Health Sciences in Lombard, Illinois. He was a lifelong resident of Riverdale. He was married to Nancy, a retired NY City and Yonkers technology teacher who had recently re-joined the team to offer her expertise in tech support. Together they have two sons, both of whom were born at home.
As a Chiropractor with experience, Dr. Shaw was committed to promoting optimal health and the well-being of patients.
Dr. Shaw used a whole-person approach. This approach to wellness means looking for underlying causes of any disturbance or disruption (which may or may not be causing symptoms at the time) and making whatever interventions and lifestyle adjustments that would optimize the conditions for normal function. Using this unique approach, Dr. Shaw was able to help you to accelerate and/or maintain your journey to good health.
Dr. Shaw passed away a few months ago leaving behind a legacy of natural health through chiropractic. Although he is missed by patients, family and friends his legacy continues. Please visit soon.
