Dr. Shockey attended Life Chiropractic College West in San Francisco, California where he graduated Suma Cum Laude and Valedictorian of his class in 2006. He went on to further his education by receiving training in Functional Nutrition, Performance Fitness, Posture Correction, and Wellness Coaching. He is also a certified personal trainer and nutritional consultant. The doctor is an active member of the American College of Sports Medicine. Dr. Shockey serves patients who live throughout the greater New York City area with an office conveniently located in midtown Manhattan.
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 the private industry, 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 change, but Dr. Shockey felt compelled to help others as he had been helped by chiropractic therapies and naturopathy. For 11 years, he suffered from recurring skin eruptions throughout his body, persistently swollen lymph nodes, crippling fatigue, and continual back pain. After years of pills and medical testing to no avail except for 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.”
