Dr. Shane suffered from severe anxiety a majority of his life until he recently found an answer.  Ever since he was a little kid he was unable to sleep over at a friend’s house because he would get homesick. They would have to call his parents in the middle of the night to come pick him up because he would be crying.  He went through grade school and high school constantly worrying about things out of his control.  In college Dr. Shane was hospitalized as he began to experience full blown panic attacks, at which point he was diagnosed with generalized anxiety disorder.  He began going to the chiropractor while he was in high school only when he would have neck or back pain because that’s what the chiropractor recommended.  The chiropractor never explained to him what chiropractic truly was.  Thanks to him Dr. Shane did end up going to chiropractic school because he saw how happy everyone was that came into his office.  Within his first year of chiropractic school he learned the full picture of what chiropractic really was and a special technique (Torque Release Technique) that could help with his anxiety.  Dr. Shane began getting adjusted on a regular basis and within a few months his anxiety was almost non-existent.  To this day he still gets adjusted on a regular basis and his anxiety levels remain low.

He currently is an avid cyclist and snowboarder and when he is not working on one of his companies you will find him outside playing in the mountains! Come join him on one of his group rides he puts on through the Apex Chiropractic Cycling club!
