chiropractic careWhy should I have chiropractic care?

When joints and muscles are not functioning properly, abnormal wear and tear is created upon the body because it has to work harder and may create compensations. This can lead to pain, fatigue and a variety of other health issues. The body is resilient, but chiropractic care can assist it in maintaining normal mobility and function.

Do Chiropractors treat only the neck and back?

No. Chiropractors definitely treat the neck and back, but we focus on the joints, muscles and nervous system of the entire body. We treat shoulders, elbows, wrists, hands, hips, knees, ankles and feet. We address your body as a whole.

What is an adjustment like?

Adjustments feel like light pressure applied to the spine or to the joints of the body. Most of the time patients feel a sense of release and increased mobility as a result. It is a very comfortable feeling. If it weren't, most patients would never come back.

Are chiropractic adjustments safe?

YES! There are many studies showing that a chiropractic adjustment is extremely safe. It is the best conservative alternative to prescription medications and surgeries. Although some medications and surgeries cannot be avoided, it's important to determine the least invasive approach to your health. A thorough examination will identify the few rare patients who are not good candidates for chiropractic adjustments and might benefit more from other types of treatments.

Who can get adjustments?

Chiropractic adjustments are for ALL ages, from babies to seniors and everyone in between. Adjustments are great for active people as well as the majority of our work force who may sit for 8+ hours a day. Each person is adjusted according to their unique traits, including age, size and pre-existing health issues. Most importantly, we want you to feel relaxed and comfortable.

Is it true that I have to continue treatment for the rest of my life?

This is a trick question. No, you do not have to continue treatment for the rest of your life once you recover from your pain or discomfort, but continued treatment can help maintain your body's optimal function. It is not mandatory, but why not focus on preventative care? Yes, most people seek out chiropractic care to relieve pain, but just like getting your teeth cleaned or having your car's oil changed, your body needs attention even when no mechanical dysfunction seems evident. Over time, you will spend less money on your health if you invest in preventative care.

As an athlete my body is my tool for working. Regular adjustments have helped me manage pains and injuries that come with playing football. As well as overall maintenance/injury prevention.
Dr. Shui is very knowledgable and experienced. He always has an answer for what is bothering me and gives me great advice on what to do on my own to help recover and prevent any issues.

I wish I hadn't waited so long to treat the pain in my back! Dr Shui is a healer! After just one visit my pain is 95% gone. I am so glad to have found this gem in San Diego.

Dr Shui and Miss Evelyn are the most amazing chiropractic office that I have ever had the privilege of visiting. They helped me feel the best I had in YEARS and then after an awful auto accident they literally nursed me back to a state where I could travel home for long term recovery. Had it NOT been for Dr Shui's treatment using so many modalities I would not have been able to open my mouth to chew, get off of pain medication for the most part, and get to the critical doctors appointments. He is a true healer and really has that gentle and knowing touch!!! I would not trust my health of that of my family and loved ones to ANYONE ELSE!!!!

Their consistently amazing care and friendly office keep me coming back! Both Dr.'s are excellent and know how to truly care for their patients!

I've been seeing Chiropractors my entire life and so I am quite picky about who can adjust me. I am quite happy to say I found an office I trust here in San Diego and will continue to go to for years to come!

What amazing people. I had the pleasure of being adjusted by both Dr. Doan-Thy Dinh and Dr. Brian A. Shui toward the end of my pregnancy, and right after. They also both adjusted my newborn boy. They not only do an excellent job of adjustments in a clean and professional office, but are both fantastic resources who really care about their patients. They gave me great tips and tricks relating to my pregnancy, birth, and being a new Mom. I felt I could ask them anything and had complete confidence in the advice they gave.

I have found a new home for those days when i need an adjustment and an honest opinion!

Dr. Brian is a great DC and their charges are very reasonable!

Maggie

Dr. Thy is simply amazing. She's intuitive, kind, gentle, loving, generous and excellent at all she does. She's not only great at giving an effective adjustment (including during my pregnancy ... and after) but she's incredibly knowledgable about many healing modalities. She's also fantastic with my children, adjusting them, accommodating them in her office (a baby and a toddler) and showing them love and respect.

The office is lovely and peaceful. They have a fantastic girl named Evelyn at the front desk. Brian is always smiling and I'm sure equally as great at what he does. Really, if you're looking for a chiropractor, call Shui Chiropractic.

Shui is really a duo of Dr Brian & Dr Thy (feel free to throw dynamic in front of that). Dr. Brian, who seems to focus more on his unique brand of Chiropractic specialty - sport ART (which I think stands for Active Release Technology). All i know is that I have a bunch of Navy Seal friends who go to him broken and sideways and come back smiling and rejuvenated while regularly and sing high praises.

Elle

Dr. Thy is SUPERB. She is kind, friendly, caring and most importantly WARM. With my old chiropractor it was a very cold, clinical setting and zero personality. Dr. Thy provides a comforting atmosphere and thoroughly explains everything she does to you.

Also a first, she asks me if I am comfortable with an adjustment before she does it. Who does that? She'll get you in position and explain the way it works, and then ask if it is ok with you before performing. Huge.

At my second visit I made an appointment for my husband because she is so great and now we are both in treatment. I cannot recommend Shui enough.

Ann

If you need help on your body, they will help you out.
If you need care on your body, they will take care of you.
If you need talk, they will listen to you.

John

Weakness, sore muscles, stiff joints. A little more than three months later significant improvement. Lost twenty pounds. Feeling much better.

Dr. Thy has been a wonderful ally in improving my health. She has taken a comprehensive approach using thorough information gathering up front followed by treatments, diet changes, supplements, exercise routines.

Amy

They saved the day! My back was out so bad I was considering going to the ER. They got me in right away and by the end of my appointment I was able to get back to work. I really feel like they took extra care of me, e-stem, massage, and adjustments. I'm very grateful for the help and would highly recommend them.

Anne

This was my first chiropractic experience and I was a bit nervous. Dr. Thy is so knowledgeable and caring, she put me at ease immediately -- and helped me feel better, physically. I have been going to her for a couple of years now and so happy to have found her. Run, don't walk, if you need care (and, who doesn’t?)

Gen

I really don't like to have my neck popped or cracked by a chiropractor - Actually I HATE it! So I put up with a splitting headache for two weeks before I finally broke down and came in to see Dr. Thy. Wow... she was so gentle and so PRECISE! She only made two or three small cracks to my neck, and I have to admit, at first I thought "Geez I got up the nerve to do this and now what are the chances this will work?!" But it did! Head ache gone by the time I left the office! Wow! She really knows what she's doing!

Marie

Dr Thy was fantastic! She was very helpful in my treatment (Webster Technique for Transverse Baby) and helped with late pregnancy back/hip pain. Baby successfully turned from transverse to head down during our treatment (while doing chiro and acupuncture). She accommodated my schedule and was generally very warm and kind. Highly recommend!

Dave

I'm the kind of guy that really doesn't do well with the kind of physical contact that happens during a session of chiropractic treatment. I have too much hair and I'm too ticklish to be able to relax! ARGH! Just the same, I took advantage of an invitation to give chiropractic a try and was really pleased with my experience at Shui Chiropractic. I met with Dr Brian Shui who was very understanding of my feelings and hesitation to even try. He was terrific and I learned from our time together about other healthy habits and practices. Dr Thy Dinh is a member of my business networking and development group. She shares her experience and education with us quite frequently and I always learn something new about my overall health. The team at Shui Chiropractic & Wellness are a tremendously positive resource in our ever-stressful lives. I cant recommend them highly enough.

Renata

I went to see Dr. Thy a couple of times. The first time I was a little scared because I didn't really know what to expect from a chiropractor. with all the movies and jokes about them cracking all your bones and making it super painful, i was scared to go but my sister said I should so I did. I was very impressed with what a great person Dr. Thy is! my sessions were great, nothing like movies or myths. I am studying architecture,s o with that comes long hours of nonstop sitting in the same position which produces a lot of back/neck pain. She helped me out and gave me great advice on some exercises I could do while drafting so my body can feel better. Every time I went with her she gave me great advice on how to better my health whether through exercise or diet. She is beyond nice and beyond great at what she does. Both Doctors are great and they make a great team. My boyfriend went to go see Dr. Brian a couple of times and would always rage about how great he was and how good he felt afterwards. We both attended the "dinner with the doctors" and it was very informative. I would completely recommend everyone to go see them. they are the nicest genuine Chiropractors I have ever met. They are very good at what they do and they will definitely help you out.
