Mo Shouka, DC, QME

Dr. Shouka is the clinic director at ChiroActive Therapy and has established the treatment protocols for our facility. He had graduated with honors from Southern California University of Health Sciences in 1988.  He was the first chiropractic student ever published in the prestigious “Spine” Journal.

He has been the team chiropractor for the Los Angeles Sparks since 2010.

 Dr. Shouka has a 5th degree black belt and has attained a Master Level in the martial art known as Hapkido.  He was a competitive swimmer and had taught swimming at all levels from babies to seniors to competitive swimmers.  Teaching these sports requires a deep understanding of biomechanics that has contributed to the unique treatments developed at ChiroActive Therapy.

As an expert in TMJ disorders and craniofacial pain, Dr. Shouka volunteers his time at The White Memorial Hospital Craniofacial Pain Clinic. Dr. Shouka believes that a complete understanding of movement patterns and postural distortions is essential to healing and sustained relief.

Our Approach

  1. It’s all about timing and execution. There is a time and place for everything. Recognizing when to implement a therapy is critical to the outcome of the condition.
  2. Restoring function is the key to regaining health and mobility. Correcting movement patterns is a big part of our treatments. Once we are moving correctly our joints can heal.
  3. To educate people in the principles of muscle therapy and the effects it has on body mechanics. To understand the resultant nerve irritation, weakness, and joint damage. To offer a tangible and realistic solution for neck and back disc degeneration, headaches, and various chronic pain conditions.

  

 

 

ChiroActiveTherapy is the combination of active therapy movements, stretches, and exercises with scientific chiro and body mechanics.

SOS–Shouka Ortho Spinology is a hands-on treatment approach that realigns the whole body through pressure and stretching. Plastic deformation is corrected with a slow and constant pressure that carefully guides the body into correct posture. Tight muscles are released to allow the agonist/antagonist muscle system to reset thereby creating strength, balance and coordination.

ATP- Active Therapy Protocols or ATP are a series of exercises that are designed to restore normal movement patterns in your body. This results in better strength, balance, flexibility and coordination. ATP resolves areas of the body that get weak and move excessively (hypermobile) and other areas that get tight and stiff (hypomobile).
