Dr. Edmund Shockey D.C.
Dr. Edmund Shockey came to New York City in 2006 because his ideas and aspirations felt too big for any place else. He grew up in Louisville, KY; graduated with a BA in Chemistry and initially pursued a career in resin manufacturing and application.
After over a decade in private industry and at the age of 39, Dr Shockey felt burned out and frustrated. This was in large part due to health challenges along with dissatisfaction with his job duties.
After some soul searching he decided to make a bold move. He sold everything , bought a motorcycle and rode to San Francisco to enroll at Life Chiropractic College West.
This was a daring move, but Dr. Shockey felt compelled to help others as he had been helped by chiropractic and a naturopathy. For 11 years he suffered with recurring skin eruptions throughout his body, persistent swollen lymph nodes, crippling fatigue, and continual back pain. After years of pills and medical testing — including the Mayo Clinic — to no avail except a cryptic diagnosis of erythema multiformae (latin: “inflamed lesions of different shapes”), he consulted holistic practitioners rather than strictly medical personnel. The change was astounding. His symptoms were reduced by 80% after 4 weeks of detoxification, altered meal planning, spinal adjustments, and yoga with meditation. Today, Dr. Shockey considers himself 98% better.
In his words, “My will to live…and hope in the future came back with the therapies. I am committed to caring for my patients in this comprehensive approach where we remove the stress on the joints, in the cells and around the mind so people can reclaim their lives just as I did.”
