Chiropractor located in Midtown, New York, NY

About Dr. Shockey

Dr. Edmund Shockey is a board certified physician specializing in the field of chiropractic care. At Empire Sports and Spine, the doctor and his staff specialize in treating many different conditions, including sciatica, lower back pain, herniated discs, shoulder pain, sports injuries, and neck pain. The doctor uses chiropractic care and naturopathic medicine to help his patients regain their health and have a higher quality of life. His ultimate goal is to provide each patient with individualized care based on their own personal needs and physical demands.

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 and 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, New York area, including Midtown, and Flatiron.

Background 

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 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 move, but Dr. Shockey felt compelled to help others as he had been helped by chiropractic and a naturopathy. For 11 years, he suffered from recurring skin eruptions throughout his body, persistent swollen lymph nodes, crippling fatigue, and continual back pain. After years of pills and medical testing to no avail except 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.”

Patient Testimonials
  •  

     

    "As a registered nurse I see every day the effects of improper nutrition, lack of exercise, and poor lifestyle habits can have on a person. I looked in the mirror and saw I was headed there myself. New Century was like a breath of fresh air because they had such confidence when speaking with me and their recommendations also worked. I’ve lost nearly 25 lbs, smile all the time and have the energy and lifestyle I’ve always craved since visiting his office."

    - Bonnie

  •  

     

    "My medical doctor said I needed to change my daily habits for eating and exercising, so I started to do some research and kept on seeing chiropractors show up as wellness experts. I was surprised with these results because I only thought that chiropractic was for neck and back pain, but I am overjoyed that they actually offer so much more. Not only have I seen transformational results, but we also brought our 3, 7, and 9-year-old children in for care and all three no longer have asthma or allergies. Truly a difference maker. "

    - Anne

  •  

     

    "I cannot even imagine missing a visit because the adjustments not only feel amazing, but they also lead to mental clarity and energy. Their advice is also profound because prior to visiting the office, I felt like I plateaued with my weight loss, and I still needed to lose 10 lbs. Not only did I lose this weight, but I lost an additional 5 lbs. My life has completely transformed as a result of the chiropractic lifestyle. Oh, I almost forgot to mention, my children visit each week and both are no longer suffering from allergies, which were debilitating at points."

    - Gary

     

     

     

    "As a competitive athlete I’m always looking for ways to improve my performance. They have taught me so much in such a short period of time and I continue going back because I have never achieved better results in my life."

    - Chris
