On a Personal Note: About Dr. Robert Shire, DC, FICPA

Dr. Rob Shire“I was in the middle of obtaining my Doctor of Chiropractic degree at Life University, School of Chiropractic in Marietta, GA when my daughter was born. My wife received chiropractic care throughout her pregnancy and delivered our daughter naturally and healthfully. I was able to see firsthand how ongoing chiropractic care alleviated many of my wife’s uncomfortable symptoms.

That time in my life inspired me to obtain a fellowship in prenatal/pediatric chiropractic through the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association (icpa4kids.org). This has become a passion of mine and continues to be a very special, rewarding focus of my practice.

I have been privileged to care for many pregnant mothers over the last 20 years, helping ease their back, neck and shoulder pain. I also have the training and success in facilitating the turning of babies that are mal-presented (not head down) by utilizing the Webster Technique.

I invite you to come to my office for a consultation and evaluation to see how we can work together to make your pregnancy experience as comfortable as possible.”
