Shoulder Specialist

Dr. Bock is a world-leading orthopedic expert on shoulder recovery at the Pain-FREE Shoulder Clinic

When you have a shoulder problem – waiting only makes it worse.

Waiting is one of the main causes of delayed healing and very long treatment times.

Don’t wait. See Dr. Bock today.

A recent study found that 28% of all people have a tear in their shoulder rotator cuff muscles.

Another study found that 50% of those people also have a tear in the opposite, non-painful shoulder.

Which means: the opposite shoulder is just a minor injury away from a full-blown problem!

It is very common for the non-injured shoulder to begin having a problem within 18 months.

Dr. Bock corrects both shoulders, so you don’t experience this devastating problem.

While working as an Olympic Chiropractor, Dr. Bock specialized in fast shoulder recovery. Helping his athletes return to competition in a matter of a few days, instead of the usual 6 months treatment time.

You can do the same. Book an appointment to find out how your shoulder can recover quickly.

Be Active and Stay Active

It is vital to seek care immediately once you begin to have a problem before it progresses. 7 out of 10 lower back patients have been misdiagnosed by other doctors. (Just because we see a disc on an MRI, does NOT mean that Your pain is related to the disc).

FACT: 80% of all lower back problems originate from sprained ligaments and weak muscles. (Discs do no have ‘sharp’ pain nerves). If you are feeling sharp pain it is most likely due to a ligament or muscle problem (sprained ankle ligaments have similar sharp pain). Dr. Bock utilizes precise orthopedic tests to find the root cause of your injury, so your injury can be fixed quickly.

Relieve Pain & Discomfort

By locating the cause of your back pain, neck pain, or joint stiffness, Dr. Bock can help you find relief and regain mobility. When you're free from pain, you're more likely to engage in physical activities, exercise, and enjoy an active lifestyle.

Improve Joint Mobility

By targeting specific areas of restriction or stiffness, Dr. Bock can restore proper joint function and alleviate limitations that may hinder your activity level. This enables you to move more freely, participate in sports, and engage in various physical activities without discomfort.

Individualized Treatment

Dr. Bock takes into account your activity level, lifestyle, and any existing injuries or conditions. By addressing these factors, we provide "Personalized Individual Care" which optimizes your body's performance, prevent injuries, and support your active lifestyle for the long term.

Case Studies

Our clinic is proud to showcase a collection of compelling case studies that highlight the remarkable transformations and positive outcomes our patients have experienced through our specialized treatments.

In a remarkable transformation after 45 years of pain hindering his arm mobility, Sr. Francisco experiences a breakthrough within minutes at Dr. Bock’s chiropractic clinic. Witness the awe-inspiring moment as Sr. Francisco effortlessly raises his arm above shoulder level and learns to lift it to the side for the very first time. Prepare to be amazed as Sr. Francisco’s hands flutter in astonishment at the ease and speed of his remarkable progress.

Recently, a patient who had exhausted all options came to us as a last resort, with scheduled shoulder surgery just days away. The diagnosis from orthopedic surgeons was tendinitis and impingement syndrome, with plans to cut the shoulder blade. However, in a remarkable turn of events, this patient experienced PAIN-FREE movement, regaining nearly 97% of normal mobility in just 5 minutes.

Dr Bock is to the point. He listens well and he showed me exactly what was wrong and how to strengthen myself. I liked and appreciated his approach.

Fantastic service by a true professional with a wealth of experience treating back/shoulder pain and injuries. Not only does Dr Bock manually treat the actual problem(s) on site, but he also explains clearly the cause of your pain via models, visual media, books, etc. so that you can take control of your own healing at home with specific exercises that you learn to integrate into your daily life. His optimism and caring attitude to genuinely helping you recover encourages you to treat your own body better. 110% satisfied :-)!

The Doc is the best- lifesaver while I was traveling in Portugal- Beware of the massive cobblestone and mosaic streets and train stations especially those that go straight up and down! The Doc helped stabilize me with both my acute situation and long time herniated disc issue and out of place sacrum ~ Don’t think twice about getting in to see him if you are suffering from any chiropractic issue- I am also thankful for 3 tips he gave me that have helped immensely- 1.The - least expensive best shoes ( in lieu of orthotics ) for back issues 2.Using a vertical mouse instead of the standard horizontal one 3. While traveling in different hotels- how to make the avail pillow and towels work for you to avoid neck issues- His shoe tip worked- the key being men's shoes which are wider at the top~ I'm feeling so much better !

We visit Portugal several times a year and usually we find that one of us has a problem with our back or neck. This was particularly so in the run up to and recovery from fairly major back surgery for my husband in 2014. We have been delighted and relieved to find Dr Bock. His skills, knowledge and experience are outstanding but more importantly he has a real knack for getting to the root of a problem and takes a creative approach to resolving it. Sometimes that will be minimal intervention but excellent advice on exercise, posture etc. It has been a huge bonus for us to know that he is close at hand when we are over there. We would like to ship him back to the UK .Carla is super efficient, speaks better English than we do and always looks after us so well. Would not hesitate to recommend this team to anyone looking for help during a holiday or on a longer term basis if you live there.
