Dr. Sean Shapiro, with his family.

Thanks for taking a moment to learn more about CHIROCARE Health Centre!”

I would like to start by explaining how I found out about chiropractic in the first place; I guess you could say it was somewhat of an “accident.” As a 15-year-old I was involved in a three-car pile up and was badly injured. I was referred for therapy for a full year, during which time my health unfortunately declined. After this, desperate for my old life back, I was sent to a well-known local sports physician who attempted to adjust/manipulate my spine. When mentioning this to my Grandmother at a family dinner, she told me to go see a chiropractor because, as she put it, “that is their specialty!” So, on her advice, my brother (who was in the accident with me) and I tried chiropractic, and we have never looked back. The care we received changed our lives, and as a result we have now both become chiropractors!

Live a Healthier Life

Over the years I have seen the difference chiropractic can make, not only for injuries, but in helping people live the life they have always imagined. Seeing my patients, both young and old realize they are healthier and living better this year than they were last year simply by adding chiropractic care to their lives, only deepens my love for what I do.

Some visitors to our website often recognize me from my health articles in the paper or local magazines or from my regular appearances on SHAW and CityTV. It’s always exciting to pass along some of the advice I regularly share with my patients and see that it has helped so many people. I continually strive to learn and improve the care given at our office and regularly attend continuing education throughout the U.S. and Canada. I have completed a fellowship with the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association (FICPA) and am certified in the Webster Technique. In addition, I am a Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist (CSCS) and a licenced Acupuncturist with Acupuncture Canada (ACC, formerly the CAFCI designation).

On a Personal Note…

I am married to my longtime sweetheart Kera, who I met when cast as her love interest in our high school musical “Grease”, and yes the song “We go together” played at our wedding! Kera is an elementary school teacher and we have two adorable children; Jonah and Mia, (who were the inspiration for building ‘the family room’ at CHIROCARE Health Centre) and a puppy named Poppy. We are a very active family who enjoy travelling and giving back to our community. After practicing in Winnipeg for five years, I founded CHIROCARE Health Centre which opened it’s doors in it’s present location; down the street from the Pan Am Clinic, right next to the Reh-fit centre on Taylor Avenue in 2008, literally steps from where I grew up and where my parents still live today.

Thank you again for visiting our site, I hope you enjoyed learning a little more about my family and I, but if there is one thing I can leave you with it’s; the more I learn, the more I understand that the greatest gift in life is our health, but true “health” is something that needs to be nurtured. Chiropractic plays a paramount role in keeping us at our best, allowing us to spend more time simply enjoying our lives. So, if you are thinking about acupuncture, massage therapy and of course, chiropractic care in Winnipeg, we hope you’ll think of ‘CHIROCARE’ and give us a call (488-CARE) so you can receive CARE TODAY, for a better tomorrow! I look forward to meeting you and helping you achieve the same amazing results from chiropractic care that my family and I have had, and still continue to enjoy each and everyday.
