Shaker Spine & Sport Institute

Dr. Shaker is a chiropractor in Tampa, FL who has always had a penchant for questioning the process within the system, trying to understand “why” something presents as it does. This natural curiosity is what fuels his expertise in Orthopedic functional medicine. In high school, Dr. Shaker was a three sport, all state athlete. He excelled academically and athletically due to his own sense of drive and determination.

Like many athletes, however, he incurred an injury that left him sidelined. His dad, Paul, was an ex All State Running Back. Paul, a sporting goods salesman who knew everyone, took him to all of the best conventional physicians in the area. None were able to help Dr. Shaker’s injury, nor could they even agree on a diagnosis or treatment protocol. Finally, out of frustration and desperation, father and son were referred by then famous coach Mose Lacey to Dr. TJ Lindsay, a chiropractor in a small adjacent town.

Dr. Lindsay was able to quickly and definitively put the star athlete back on the field. Dr Shaker knew from a very young age that he wanted to pursue a medical degree. This experience gave him the idea to maybe become a chiropractic physician. It was while premed and playing baseball that Dr Shaker finally decided to become a chiropractor. Dr. Shaker has spent his career exploring and investigating in novel approaches that enhance human function, movement, and performance.

The natural adaptation for him as an athlete and physician that understands function and rehabilitation has led to a revered international reputation. The humble beginnings of his Michigan roots have been a mainstay for Dr. Shaker. He has never forgotten his mentors, teachers, and coaches who enabled him to become the man and physician he is. Dr. Shaker has strived to pay that effort forward in his own right. He has mentored countless youth, starting with his treasured nieces and nephews. It has become a mantra for him to give back the lessons he was shown. After one visit with “Shake”, you will know, see and feel the difference.

Dr. Shaker has treated thousands of patients from all walks of life: doctors, lawyers, therapists, clergy, professional athletes, law enforcement, amateur athletes, entertainers, artists, children and seniors. He has treated all ages and all types of pain and injury problems getting people back to their busy life as quickly as possible, returning to their jobs, regular activities, or the athletic arena.
