Dr. Shawn T. Finn
As a high school athlete, Shawn Finn, D.C. suffered a severe injury that threatened his ability to participate in sports in the future. He received treatment from his chiropractor that quickly healed his injury and left an indelible impression on him. Dr. Finn continued his education and athletic career at Washington and Jefferson College, where he continued to receive treatment from his chiropractor for his injuries. Dr. Finn realized that the natural healing techniques of chiropractic care meshed well with his love of fitness and exercise. Dr. Finn decided to enroll in the National College of Chiropractic in Chicago, from which he graduated in 1997.
Dr. Finn has been in private practice in Seven Fields since April 1998. During this time, he has undergone board training in Sports Chiropractic and has received extensive training in soft-tissue therapy such as neuromuscular re-education and Active Release Technique. His advanced training also includes work in pregnancy-related disorders and pediatric sports injuries.
Dr. Finn’s love of fitness did not end in college. He has completed marathons and half-Ironman triathlons. Recently, however, distance racing caused Dr. Finn to develop the same lower back pain that affected many of his patients. It was at this time that Dr. Finn discovered Pilates and began using these exercises, combined with chiropractic care, weight training, and massage therapy. His lower back pain disappeared and the success of his new treatment regimen inspired Dr. Finn to become a certified Pilates instructor and to use these techniques with his patients. The results have been nothing short of awesome! Shorter treatment times and less pain for his patients convinced Dr. Finn that this type of combination therapy could work for anyone!
