 Why did I wait 13 years !?!?

I came to see Dr. Shields for treatment of symptoms I had been experiencing for 13 years, which started after a rollerblading accident.

I was having weakness on my right side of my body, extreme lower back pain, pain in my right shoulder blade and shoulder, right arm and right hand pain, pain on the left side of my neck, and pain in my joints which, I thought was arthritis. I would also have occasional dizziness and listing to my right.

 My most notable experience during my treatment was the disappearance of my low back pain, my right side is strong again, and the left side of my neck no longer hurts. 

Dr. Shields’ help with the correction of my Atlas has brought me “Total Relief!”  I have no joint pain or neck pain!              

Thank you Dr. Shields!

Simple, but Amazing!

Unable to get relief from my right hand and arm being numb and tingly, I was starting to feel desperate. Having the first episode of numbness almost 3 years ago, I got relief, but I don’t believe it fully resolved.

In March 2012, it came back full-force. I got minor and minimal relief from traditional chiropractic treatments, but ultimately was told I should consider seeing a neurologist.  This was not an option for me.

As if it was divine intervention, a friend of my mother in NY had recently had an Atlas Orthogonal treatment with incredible results. After a little research and some luck, I was blessed to have found Dr. Vanessa!

Words can’t express the appreciation for Dr. Vanessa and her whole-body approach! The atlas procedure is simple, but amazing!  Although I do find it funny that immediately after - my legs were the same length!(I can stop blaming the tailor for my pants being uneven!!)  It’s been a gradual, but steady process of healing. The numbness is gone and I look forward to the continued positive process! 

Thanks Dr. V.



I Saw Immediate Results!

I suffered for several months with neck pain and for many years with low back pain.  I also experienced dizziness and eye pressure. 

I came to see Dr. Shields and I saw immediate results; my posture is also better. 

My neck is straight, it doesn’t hurt, and I can feel  the blood flowing to my head again!

P.S. My golf game has also improved!

This is my testimonial on how your Atlas procedures have improved my back pain over the last two weeks since coming to your clinic.

For the last few weeks I have had constant pain in my lower back, upper shoulders and neck areas.  I have been seeing various chiropractors including sport specialists for the past 25 years and nothing has worked quite as well as your techniques.

The initial explanation by you on how this procedure worked was very informative as I had doubts about this procedure.  Nothing seemed to work until this effort by yourself with the latest in technology on hand.  From the first visit to your office until the last appointment, I have seen significant improvements in all parts of my back including posture.  The pain has subsided immensely and has improved my quality of life.

I wish to thank you for your assistance and appreciate your endeavors to help me.

P.S. My golf game has also improved-Thank you!

Outstanding Results!
I have struggled with back and neck pain for many years, since a rear-end car collision in the 80's. I have worked with several different chiropractors over the past 20 years. Each seems to have a different protocol and approach. Although I have benefited from all of them, Dr. Shields has proven to be the most thorough and effective practitioner I have found. I have gotten the best results from her techniques. She is totally devoted to her patients, and the methods she employes deliver outstanding results. A visit to her office is always a pleasant experience, not an ordeal. I highly recommend Dr. Shields and the Atlas Orthogonal method of Chiropractic.

I can’t believe I lived with so much pain!

My name is Beverly and I had fallen and broken my hip, I also fractured my femur in 3 places. Leaving my leg over 1” shorter than the other.

I was told it would take approximately 1 year to heal. After a year and a half, I was still in extreme pain! I had problems getting dressed, walking, standing, sitting and sleeping.

My very first visit I felt immediate relief of pain – My leg regained ¾” inch. I was in shock! I cried with relief and hugged Dr. Shields. She explained alot to me, so I also found my experience very educational. I knew I was on the road to recovery!

Since my treatments, all kinds of positive things have happened not only with my hip and leg, but overall healing in my body. I am able to work again, part-time for now.  My mobility has remarkably improved. My pain level is low and manageable and still improving.

I highly recommend this treatment. Looking back I can’t believe I lived with so much pain! I don’t even like to think of it anymore.

I would like to thank Dr. Shields and her staff for their compassion and support! I can’t express enough how grateful I am.

I would like to tell the world, don’t wait like I did, get out of pain now!

I no longer travel to Missouri for Atlas Care

After sustaining a head/neck injury, I began having progressive decreased sensation and weakness in my arms and legs and difficulty lifting objects to shoulder level without losing my grip on the object.  I began to have worsening muscle spasms in my neck and back, which were not responsive to other therapies. 

After beginning care with an Upper Cervical doctor, I am gradually regaining my sensation and strength in my hands, and my muscle spasms are diminished.  I try not to think about how much more nerve damage I would have experienced had I not started Upper Cervical care when I did!

Thank you so much Dr. Shields for opening your practice in Weston, Fl and for spreading the message of the amazing benefits and power of Upper Cervical Care to our Community.

6 Years of Lower Back Pain and Sciatica Almost Gone!

For six years I was experiencing lower back and sciatica pain.  Once I started seeing Dr. Shields I had immediate lower back relief.  There was consistent improvement after each visit.

The pain is almost fully gone.   After only two months of treatment there has been an 80% improvement.

I Can Hear Again!!!

All of my life I have suffered from ear problems. When I was a child, I constantly had ear infections in the R ear. Because of this my R ear has always been the weaker one and for the last 15 years I could barely hear anything in it at all. Every time I get a head cold, the right ear clogs up. Feb 2009, I had a head cold and the L ear also clogged up, making hearing difficult in either ear. I figured this would go away when my cold went away. I was wrong. In April 2009, my hearing started to greatly decrease in both ears. Now I could barely hear anything at all. 

I didn’t know if it would help, but I came to see Dr. Vanessa on April 20th. She found a misalignment in the top of my neck. She took a very detailed x-ray of that area and corrected it. I didn’t even feel the adjustment, but for the next week and a half my hearing would come and go. I also had ringing in my ears during this time.  I knew something was changing. The next day I woke up and I could hear again!!! I’ve had to turn my tv down twice since having my neck corrected.

10 days after my first adjustment my hearing had returned in both ears. The R ear hasn’t worked for the last 15 years and I thought it never would again. I’ve only  been adjusted 2x since I started care and I’m still holding my alignment and I’m getting better and better every day. I even have to wear ear plugs at work now, something I never had to do before. 

Also, I spend most of my time sitting at work and have always had pain after sitting for too long. I have noticed I can sit all day at work now without any pain at all.

Thank you so much Dr. Vanessa!

 The only thing you have to lose is pain

 After suffering for 4 months a great friend of mine suggested I see Vanessa Shields Doctor of Chiropractic Atlas Orthogonal. She is very in tune to her patient's needs, very compassionate to one's pain and suffering.

After the first visit, the very next day, I noticed remarkable improvement! I had partial feeling in a finger! That prior to treatment was solidly numb. I had feeling in it and the sharp pain slowly faded.

I'm a skeptic. I needed to experience it for myself, which you will need to do too!

The only thing you have to lose is pain and gain a better quality of life!

 Stop and make an appointment your health will appreciate it!

Dr Vanessa is the DOCTOR OF THE DECADE! My whole life before her care was a routine of constant lower back pain, constantly taking ibuprofen to work, sleep, and exercise. My right leg was a half inch longer than my left.

 I do Olympic distance triathlon. My performance in triathlon was always hampered by constant pain and hobbling while biking and running.

Since she adjusted my neck, my lower back pain finished to zero, my legs are the same length. I just did my first triathlon since her care and my time was 20 minutes faster than last year!

------ Update -----

"I have Huntington's Disease, which is a neurological disorder with a slow decline in cognitive and physical function. I saw my Neurologist last July, 2013...my disease was showing some progression....I started care with Dr Vanessa January 2014......I just had a routine visit with the Neurologist this month (Aug 2014), after 8 months of Atlas care....to the doctor's amazement, not only did i show NO disease progression, i improved in all areas of testing, cognitive and physical.

This never happens in the course of this disease...

THANK YOU Dr Vanessa for giving me hope for the future!!"

Strength Regained…. Dizziness Gone!

After almost a year of leg weakness, stiffness, and dizziness, I went to the medical doctor who said what I was feeling was due to stress, that it would never disappear, and I would have to learn to live with it. It marked me….                                              So I visited a Neurologist who said the problem was with the inner ear (Vertigo), and again it wouldn’t disappear.

I then came to see Dr. Shields (Atlas Chiropractor), for evaluation. As soon as Dr. Shields did the first adjustment, I felt better and every week as she told me I was holding my adjustment, I felt some beneficial changes in my body. I started feeling my feet beginning to having more contact on the ground. During my treatment, I began to recover strength in my legs and was able to start going back to the gym, riding my bike again, walking without the sensation that I was going to fall down. The dizziness is gone and I have been able to return to most of my daily activities.

Today, I can say it is almost gone!!!

Thank you Dr. Shields!

Don’t Live with It, Get Rid of It!

I came to Dr. Shields six months ago with right neck pain, right shoulder pain, and right arm pain. I also had numbness at the end of my fingers. I had been suffering with it for three weeks.  My right leg muscle was also very hard for years and now the hardness is gone and the muscle is normal again finally. My whole right side feels much better! My feeling is back and the pain is gone!

Wish I found New Life Sooner!

After having a bad fall on my roller blades two and a half years ago, my health has been on a slow steady decline. Severe headaches, tightness and pain in my neck, dizziness, weakness in arms and legs, difficulty walking, severe fatigue, shortness of breath, hoarseness in my voice, and depression.

It has been 3 months under Dr. Shields’ care and I am slowly getting my life back! The above symptoms are gradually becoming a thing of the past, and I’m gaining muscle strength that I lost. I wake up happy now instead of waking up in pain and dreading the day.

The staff at New Life Chiropractic is so compassionate about helping others; it is evident that they truly love what they do. You are never rushed in and out, they take the time to listen and help.

 My ONLY regret is not finding them sooner!

Thank you Dr. Shields!

You Helped Me Walk Again!

Thank you so much for helping me before I left for South Africa, it meant so much to me.

 I went to two separate specialists and neither of them could help me. You helped me in one day! 

You helped me walk again after three months of being unable to!

Thank you so much Dr. Shields!

No More Neck or Back Pain After 30 Years!

For almost 30 years, since a bad car accident, I have suffered from bad neck pain, lower back pain and numbness/tingling in my arms.

Within one visit with Dr. Shields, tingling in my arm lessened.

Six months later, maintaining my care with Dr. Shields, I am a new and improved woman.  The numbness is gone.

 I feel so much better.

Having the Atlas correction has improved my neck and back pain more than almost 25 years of Traditional Chiropractic.

Dr. V is amazing - my hero!"

I Am Completely in AWE of the Results!

I brought my son in for an injury he sustained in a car accident, what I didn’t know is that I was walking out a patient as well!  I’ve been getting manual adjustments for some time now and I would always get headaches in the days to follow.  Once I saw the video playing in Dr. Shields’ office I decided to take a leap of faith and give it a shot.

I am completely in awe of the results that followed.  I actually feel more alert, energized, and healthy than I’ve been in a very long time.  What an amazing approach!  How are there not more of these doctors around?

Headaches Vanished!


For almost a year, I had tried to get my headaches to magically vanish.  I also had developed High blood pressure in this time. Dr. Shields pays great attention to the details of health.

 A lot of relief, including a better outlook on life, sleeping better with a more restful sleep, improved disposition, better control of my high blood pressure, and magically my headaches have considerably diminished!

Thank you Dr. Shields!

It has Made All the Difference!

Over the last several years, I suffered from muscular tension in the back, shoulders, and postural distress. It was becoming increasingly difficult to sit up or stand straight. It finally got to the point where I wasn't comfortable in any chair. I was only comfortable lying flat on my back. Over a period of 18 months I began to lose weight. I was skeletal thin and completely exhausted by the time I met Dr. Vanessa.

After the initial treatment, I experienced a sense of euphoria, followed by release of muscular tension in my shoulders, and I noticed an immediate change in my breathing. My energy level improved within the week and my digestion improved several months later. It is unbelievable to me how much relief the Atlas correction brought. I can now sit up straight, stand straight, and I feel and look so much healthier. Complete relief. I can't believe I managed to live without this specialized chiropractic care. It has made all the difference.

Thank you so much Dr. Vanessa!




Best Health Decision!

For ten years prior to coming to see Dr. Shields I had a stabbing feeling in the center of my chest through to the center of my back.  I thought it was a heart attack but I was checked and nothing showed.

After my treatment with Dr. Shields the typical aches and pains associated with age are not present.  I rarely even get sick anymore.

I do not have the words to describe how much relief the Atlas correction has brought.  I cannot refer enough people  that are probably suffering in pain but don’t even know why.  

 Coming to see Dr. Shields was the best health decision I have made in my life!!

I Experienced 100% Relief

Since February, 2013 I have been dealing with right arm numbness, it was not 100% usable.  I couldn’t even turn the radio station in the truck while driving.

My first visit to Dr. Shields was in March 2013.  She gave me an in depth explanation of the procedures and what the outcome would be.

I experienced 100% relief and the follow-up visits have kept me in check. I am very happy and I can change the radio station without pain!

It Has Brought Me Back to Wellness!!!

No More Neck or Back Pain After 20 Years!

For almost 20 years, I had suffered from bad neck pain, back pain, left knee pain, left foot pain, and pain in both shoulders, with tiredness.

I walked away from the office after my first correction with Dr. Shields without pain, and I started moving furniture. Even though it was not recommended by Dr. V!

Maintaining my care with Dr. Shields, I continue to have no pain.

My atlas correction has brought me back to wellness!

Dr. Vanessa is the BEST!

 No More Sciatica!

Over the last 20 years, I suffered from a slipped disc with a pinched sciatic nerve. It was becoming increasingly difficult to function.

        My most notable experience during my treatment was when my Atlas was 'holding' and we did some mild traction, it was the first time in 20 years that I had no pain in my back or leg!!!                            

“I felt like I knew what it was like to not have a back problem!”                         

It is unbelievable how much healing the Atlas correction has brought. On a scale of 1-10, my improvements have been an 8!

Thank you so much Dr. Vanessa!

I Am Extremely Happy!!!

The day after my car accident, I felt some pretty severe pain in my neck and lower back from what I thought was a bad case of whiplash.  I was not ready to go to the ER and fork over $5,000 for a neck brace and some aspirin, so I took my father’s advice and went to our local chiropractor here in Weston.  I am extremely happy I did!

 From the moment I walked in the door until I left, it was a learning experience.  My fears of being pushed, pulled, popped and yanked back into place were alleviated as I learned the processes of my treatment. 

The adjustment consisted of a sound wave that is non-invasive and instantly recognizable upon my standing up.  I couldn’t feel anything popping or cracking and my sinuses actually opened up and I could breathe better.

Thank you so much Dr. Shields!
