Dr. Jordan Shallow is a chiropractor, strength coach, and a competitive powerlifter who champions getting movement right, from the outset. Jordan’s patients range from world-class athletes to weekend warriors. Understanding the needs and demands of each individual is the cornerstone on which his clinical practice is built. When he’s not working on his Pre-Script program, traveling the world teaching strength and movement seminars with Ben Pakulski, or hosting his own podcast RX’d Radio, he’s competing in powerlifting.
