Dr. Shaker was showcased by Trigenics® in their May 2018 Newsletter. Read below what they had to say about Dr. Shaker and his use of Trigenics® in his office.


Dr. Richard Shaker has had his private practice, Shaker Spine & Sport Institute in Tampa, Florida since 1989. During his long and successful career, he has accumulated six post-graduate certifications in sports medicine, exercise rehabilitation, strength training, and neuro-muscular assessment. He has been a Registered Trigenics® Practitioner since the early 2000’s and was taught by the founder of Trigenics®, Dr. Allan Austin Oolo.

Dr. Shaker has spent his career exploring and investigating novel approaches to enhancing human function, movement, and performance. Dr. Shaker has treated thousands of patients from all walks of life, but specializes in the treatment of world-class, professional and elite athletes. He has worked with athletes such as Brian Kelly, Thomas Jones, Warrick Dunn, Dexter Jackson, Ray-Ray Mccloud and Tim Tebow.


TRIGENICS®* was developed over the last 25 years by Dr. Allan Austin and is a combination of numerous disciplines and treatment techniques. This cutting edge treatment system utilizes advanced hands-on manual muscle work, low-level laser therapy, and unique exercise / movement based therapies. Trigenics® is safe and non-forceful and can be used effectively on a broad range of patients including children and seniors.

TRIGENICS®* is more than a conventional treatment: it is an entire assessment model, utilizing a detailed, systematic approach to diagnose and treat musculoskeletal conditions. The Trigenics® system also provides functional rehabilitation and corrective exercise techniques that transition you into a strength and conditioning program designed to improve your function and performance.

TRIGENICS®* utilizes advanced techniques to decrease pain, reduce soft tissue dysfunction, restore proper muscle length, re-establish appropriated joint motion, and activate neurologically inhibited muscles.

TRIGENICS®* treatment addresses primary sources of tension within the myofascial skeletal (joints), and connective tissue system. Trigenics® corrects the compensatory patterns created by the complex interrelationships of all the structural components of the body.

The treatment usually involves applying 3 treatment techniques simultaneously to achieve rapid and dramatic effects otherwise not possible. The results, which affect the muscles, brain, and nervous system, are usually quite dramatic on the first treatment, even in the most chronic and difficult cases where every other method of treatment has been tried.

The 3 Key Components Of Trigenics®* Involve:

1. Controlled activation of specific neuromuscular reflexes with resisted exercise movements.
2. Relaxation breathing and biofeedback to generate beneficial brain wave patterns.
3. Hands-on muscle-nerve sensor manipulation to send signals to the brain which cause it to reset the way it controls movement.

Trigenics®* Your Complete Care

When muscles undergo stress or injury, their sensors stop sending proper nerve reflex signals to the brain. These muscles then become neurologically short or weak causing improper joint movement through a process called ‘neurological inhibition’ or ‘NI’.

When muscles are in a state of neurological inhibition, they will not strengthen or stretch fully with exercise or rehabilitation. ‘NI’ may not always be immediately perceptible but it will eventually lead to weak links in the muscle movement chain which will lead to injury, pain and/or deterioration.

Dr. Richard Shaker, Chiropractor in Tampa, Florida is your Registered Trigenics®* Physician/Practitioner or ‘Trigenist’* and he is fully trained to be able to detect neurological inhibition. Once assessed, Dr. Shaker will have you lightly exercise using specific resisted movements during your treatment to generate your own neurological reflexes. Then, through application of a sophisticated combination of 3 neuromanual medicine techniques, Dr. Shaker will manipulate and redirect your nerve signals to effectively reset the way your brain communicates with your muscles and body.
