My neck and traps were so painful . One meeting with Dr. Blake and I felt so much better. He explained everything, didn’t rush. And made me feel comfortable with Dry Needling which is amazing .thank you ! I’ve seen him a few times now and it feels so good to know I can count on him for relief of any injury I encounter.

Dr. Blake is super knowledgable in his field!  I had a shoulder/neck issue that flared up and Dr. Blake at Shift was able to fit an appointment quickly and helped me return to pain free exercising ASAP!  Thank you for all that you do!
