Professionals serving seniors
Hamilton, ON. – Dr. Sylvia Shackleton
Dr. Sylvia Shackleton has been a Nurse, Chiropractor, Naturopath and an Applied Kinesiologist. In her work she discovered eight dysfunctions consistently present in people and that the act of walking would undo corrections made.
While working on the reflexes of patients’ feet, mobilizing their joints and re-establishing muscle function, her treatments would last three to four months instead of one or two weeks. Now she makes a unique foot orthotic, which corrects the dysfunctions and lasts for years, not months or weeks.
Dr. Shackleton provides complimentary consultations.
She can be reached at 905 528-2218.
