To me, chiropractic feels like the truth. And I want to spend my life doing something that is true.
Meet Dr. Shilpa Parikh
Finding the Chiropractic Path
While growing up, Dr. Shilpa was a middle child who spent a lot of time with her grandparents. From them, she learned all about the energy centers in the body. During her research on this fascinating topic, she found a picture that showed how the spine was connected to these energy centers.
That was when Dr. Shilpa first realized that chiropractic was the path she was meant to take.
Connecting With You
Dr. Shilpa attended Northwestern Health Sciences University to earn her Doctor of Chiropractic. Though small in stature, Dr. Shilpa had no problem adjusting to any type of patient – in fact, in one of the later trimesters of school, she was chosen to show other students how to adjust. “I have finesse and precision without being rough on people.” With Dr. Shilpa’s compassion and connection, her patients love being under her care!
School deepened Dr. Shilpa’s understanding of the energy centers in the body. As a chiropractor, she finds the areas where energy isn’t flowing, then makes the right fix for each person.
Her additional qualifications include certification in CPR and another in physiotherapy modalities, and she is licensed in acupuncture, all of which are often used as a complement to care at Vitality Chiropractic & Wellness.
Outside of Chiropractic
When Dr. Shilpa isn’t in the office, she’s likely with her family, including Dr. Anthony, their two young children, and a third on the way. Dr. Shilpa is a true DIY-er, making all products in their homes such as lotions, toothpaste, deodorant, and lip balm. She also loves to cook, particularly with crockpot recipes. To move her body, she does yoga and uses a Bulgarian bag (a tremendous weight and strength training tool!).
