Yet another great Yelp find! Thanks to his great reviews and few friend referrals, I started seeing Dr. Michael Shahbazian a couple of months ago, and my body feels AWESOME. I have been to two other chiros in the past few years years, and I am getting the BEST results with him. I HIGHLY recommend Dr. Mike to anyone & everyone -- especially those (like me) who need to loosen up a bit. I always feel so much more relaxed and refreshed after he works his magic. Dr. Mike focuses on more than just adjusting, he focuses on wellness and whole body care! I don't know what I would do without him. Also, Dr. Mike has helped me get over some chronic aches & pains that I had been suffering from for years. Overall, very knowledgeable, intuitive, and passionate about his work. Staff are friendly and the office set-up is great AND the cost is reasonable too. WELL WORTH IT! So if you are reading this because you are scouting a new chiropractor or any of the other services they offer, I sincerely believe you will be happy and impressed if you check this office out. Dr. Mike Shahbazian is the BEST! So grateful and can't recommend him enough.Emin H.
My husband has been coming to see Dr. Mike for quite a while and has been trying to get me to come in to get adjusted. I've been pretty resistant, since I hate adjustments. The idea of someone snapping my neck reminds me of kung-fu movies and freaks me out. However, Dr. Mike is very gentle and walks you through each adjustment. I really appreciate the fact that he explains the reasoning why he is doing what he is doing and has follow-up care instructions that help you strengthen and fix the root causes of your ailments. The staff here is great, they are super efficient and friendly. Parking is available in the back, but there is also a good amount of street parking.Margaret L.
Dr. Michael Shahbazian is a lifesaver! I'd tried chiropractic a couple of times a few years ago but was unimpressed. A friend referred me to Dr. Mike after I'd tweaked my lower back so i decided to give it a whirl. What I'd never considered was the continuous pain I'd had in my feet due to plantar fascitis that had been a problem for a couple of years. I walked out of Flintridge Family Chiropractic that day pain free, both in my back AND feet, and I've never been Pain free for over a year! I go refularly for preventative maintenance and it is so worth it! Dr. Shahbazian is the man!!Serouj A.
Had some back discomfort and decided to see Dr. Mike @ Flintridge Family Chiropractic. Called on a Wednesday and was able to get an appointment the next day. I'm already feeling better after my first visit. He was very knowledgeable, patient and effective + the location is very centrally located to me and a beautiful office. I'd recommend anyone who needs a chiropractor to go see Dr. Mike S @ Flintridge Family Chiropractic!John C.
Are you skeptical of the chiropractor? Hate that feeling of cracking bones and everything Chiro related? Are you a newbie to the idea of a chiropractor. Well, 1 visit to Dr. Mike at Flintridge Family Chiro changed all of that. Why did I decide to finally visit the chiropractor? 2 reasons. As a dentist, I treat many patients with TMJ pain due to clenching and grinding due to the daily stresses of life. Dr. Mike decided to visit me one day to discuss joint treatment modalities for the TMJ and I was immediately impressed by his professionalism and knowledge. However, I was still not sold on visiting the chiropractor myself. So this brings me to the second reason why I decided to go to visit. As a dentist, my back and neck go through a tremendous amount of strain and discomfort. So much so that I finally could not move and needed something to be done so I could get back to work. Finally, I gathered my huevos and my stiff neck and made my short drive to his office. As I walked into his office, I noticed how clean and organized he is (the new location is even more modern). The front office is very organized and the communication between them and the doctors are fantastic. Dr. Mike completed a comprehensive exam, took some xrays and I was on my way. On my second appointment, he sat down and discussed why the strain in my neck and back has affected me. He laid out his treatment plan to not only improve my ergonomics in the short term, but how I would increase my longevity as a dentist in the future. He then adjusted me and improved my mobility with his recommended treatment. Not only is Dr. Mike great they also have some great chamber mixers :).

Dr. Mike has been seeing my daughter since she was 8 weeks old. He is an excellent practitioner with amazing bedside manner. He answers all our questions and is readily available for appointments as needed. Thank you Dr. Mike!Darlene F.
Dr. Mike and the staff were more than exceptional! Everyone is so kind and professional and they work so well with scheduling your appointments. I was referred here for my physical injury case and I can truly say it was an absolute pleasure being treated here! Keep up the great work guys and thank you!!!Joshua K.
I have had lower back issues since I was a kid. My lower back has always been a problem, and that pain intensified last year to the point where I couldn't even go for a run anymore. My partner and I found Flintridge Chiropractic online, and decided to check it out. We're SO glad we did! For a while we went 3 times a week for corrective care and eventually tapered off to once a week for maintenance. I have not had that intensified lower back pain since we started maintenance, and coming in for an occasional time up has virtually kept us pain free and limber, which has been essential for our jobs which keep us sedentary for hours a day. Would highly recommend Flintridge. Special shout out to Dr. Mike who has been out amazing miracle worker!Chris C.
I was referred to Michael at Flintridge Family Chiropractic through my attorney, and I couldn't be more happier with the experience. The staff is very friendly and Michael himself is very friendly and caring. He answers all my questions and best of all the treatment I receive there is phenomenal. If you need any chiropractic needs then don't even wait, call and make your appointment now, you won't regret it.Vaheh A.
I met with Dr. Shahbazian last week and I was highly impressed. Dr. Shahbazian provides personalized attention to his patients and is dedicated to the art of patient care and satisfaction. They have a great new facility with state of the art chiropractic equipment, complimented by an amazing support staff.Mel H.
If you need a chiropractor, look no further! Dr. Mike & Dr. Rion are not only excellent practioners, they are both very personable and friendly, with great senses of humor. They have an X-ray machine and adjustment tools, as well as the hands on techniques. (And they do not do the Linda Blair "Does your head spin around" thing. Yay!). Plus, Charlotte and Gaby at the desk are delightful and equally efficient.Rod G.
5/5 stars... I always feel GREAT after seeing Dr. Mike. Plus, my kids love the guy! The office is managed very professionally, yet still maintains a very family-friendly atmosphere. The doctors are top-notch (i.e. great bedside manner, effective interpersonal skills, etc) and they always seem to be in a great mood; which is very refreshing to encounter. I highly recommend Flintridge Family Chiropractic... Two thumbs-up!Jeremiah A.
First off I would like to thank Dr. Mike for his outstanding services. I was first introduced to his practice in May of 2016 and had my first consultation. I was fresh out of surgery from a torn meniscus and had some lower back and neck pain due to my hobbies and sports. Dr. Mike did a complete examination with x-rays to determine proper care. From that day forward I have been impressed time and time again at the knowledge and professionalism that he displays. My biggest fear was having to take pain medication due to my surgery, but Dr. Mike introduced me to a healthier alternative and lifestyle. Because of Dr. Mike's extensive experience, knowledge and care, I am now on my way to a full recovery and a healthy version of me! Thank you.Monica D.
Wonderful office. Always helpful. If it wasn't for Flintridge Family Chiropractic, I don't know what I would do. They have completely improved my quality of life.Tera R.
Love the New office at 845 Foothill Blvd in La Cañada. I'm more than grateful for the care and attention Dr Rion and Dr Michael give me. With hip and spine issues caused by a car accident when I was 21...finding Flintridge Family Chiropractic has been a Godsend! When I walked into Flintridge Family Chiropractic, it was like walking into Alice's Wonderland. Having been a long term patient with no less 4 other chiropractors over the previous 30 years, I thought I knew exactly what I needed when I walked through the door three years ago. But what I received was even BETTER. Long story short: I was in a "head on" auto accident in 1984, and I really messed up both my legs which causes me to walk a little different than most folks. Well, this causes my back to be pushed and pulled in directions and with forces that simply it was not designed to move. Dr. Rion completed a very thorough exam and set our course to pain freedom. I won’t lie and say I never hurt and that I am totally cured, but I MUST SAY this: I am living life with less pain and fewer pain meds than I have in 28 years because Dr. Rion cares enough to give HIS BEST. Everyone in the office from Stephanie and her front desk crew to the three amazing chiropractors make Flintridge Family Chiropractic the most Magical Place on Earth for me and my legs. I have recommended Flintridge Family Chiropractic to many friends. I EVEN SENT MY MOM IN. Now that’s saying something special.Dianalee B.
Been a client of Flintridge Family Chiropractic for almost 3 years. Due the consistent treatment and following Dr. Mike's prescription plan I have gone from barely being able to walk 1 block to now being able to walk 3 miles and the weight is coming off. I highly recommend Flintridge Family Chiropractic.Rhonda J.
I love these guys!! Everyone in the office is so knowledgeable and they really educate you on what's going on with your body. I've been getting migraine headaches for about 10 years and also dealing with my low back and hips always aching. After being adjusted at Flintridge Family Chiropractic, I can say that I've had no headaches, my lower back and hip pain has never returned. I've been pain free and migraine free for almost two years. Dr. Mike and Dr. Rion are miracle workers! The Staff are truly an amazing group of people. If you have been suffering with pain and headaches, stop by Flintridge Family Chiropractic and pay these docs a visit!John G.
My back loves Dr. Rion! For several years I had lower back pain that would come and go due to scoliosis of the spine. A couple of times I was doubled over in pain. For the past eight months I have been going to Dr. Rion, at first three times per week, now I see him once a week. My back pain has never come back like it was when I first saw him. His partner Mike has also seen me when Rion was out of town. He is equally competent. The staff is friendly and helpful. I highly recommend FFC!Mary H.
Lifetime experience for a new lifestyle of living! Dr's are awesome, great exercises with lots of results! I feel 16 again.Nowezzy Z.
Easily one of the best patient to Dr. connections I have ever had. People had told me "chiropractors don't help" "Chiropractors are a waste of money and time" I am in the third week with Dr. Mike and already I can see improvements. Not only that, each visit has taken less than 10 minutes from the minute I step in to the minute I walk out of his office. With his automated sign-in feature, your visits are smooth. Mike will not only correct you but make sure you continue to live your daily life with the correct movements so you minimize your your injuries. He takes x-rays and goes over them with you. Besides the treatments with him, he sends weekly exercises to help the part of the body that needs attention. His office is clean and his staff is extremely nice, not to mention the positive environment. The approach Dr. Mike takes to make sure you get to where YOU want to be in order to enjoy daily activities is wonderful and I recommend him to anyone looking to get chiropractic care! Thanks Dr. Mike!Alex M.
After all the years we have been coming to Flintridge Family Chiropractic we continue to have a wonderful experience with all the staff. It feels like we are all family.Lu P.
Been seeing Dr. Mike for 3 years. He's the best, saved me from back surgery. I'm hooked.Yuet Y.
I definitely recommend this quality Chiropractic center. The ladies at the front desk are friendly & efficient. My medical appointments are timely which I appreciate so much as a working person with a busy schedule. They are also flexible with appointment times. Yay! My experience with my chiropractor has been positive as well. Dr. Shahbazian has provided a ton of relief from my chronic neck pain. The adjustments help me with mobility and flexibility. I also appreciate the custom exercise plan which I access online. It has helped me strengthen my weak areas and improve my healing time. This has been an all around positive experience peeps!Leah V.
I've been holding off on writing this review until I had gotten a few Chiro adjustments to see if they made a difference and well, they totally did. I've suffered from Sciatica for about 5+ years and I've tried EVERYTHING to get better. I've seen physical therapists, sports medicine doctors, acupuncturists, herbalists, and my regular physician (who typically likes to pump me full of pain killers, muscle relaxers and steroids). In another fit of sciatic pain a few months back, I scoured Groupon to find a deal on a chiropractor (my insurance didn't cover it) and found Flintridge Family Chiropractic had the best deal at the time. I clicked purchase, spent my $65 and made my appointment. My first appointment, I met Dr. Mike Shahbazian. He was fantastic with explaining everything to me and what the process was going to be like. I scheduled my first set of appointments and was on my way. I felt a little better after each appointment. The adjustments along with the posture advice (I'm a horrible serial sloucher) and take home stretches and exercises have had a major positive effect on how I started to feel. Eight weeks later and i can positively say that going to the chiropractor was what I should have done five years ago. I still have achy days, but consistency in appointments and actively continuing to work on the pain has left those achy days few and far between. Avik A.
I've been a patient of Dr. Mike's for some time and he is the BEST. I don't go as often as I should but when I do get a chance to make it out that direction, I'm always greeted warmly by the staff at FFC and re-aligned by Dr. Mike. I can't emphasize the importance of an adjustment and the chiropractic care. It will do great for your body and you. If you have never been to a chiropractor, try Dr. Mike and you will see immediate results in the way you feel and the way you move. Appointments are recommended but if you don't have one, try calling the office to see if they have a spot- Their staff are very accommodating and friendly, I highly recommend Dr. Mike! P.S. if you are especially active with sports - you definitely have to go sooner rather than later. It will help with your performance! Great supportive care to get stronger and more efficient!Avik A.
I highly recommend Flintridge Family Chiropractic to everyone. I used to have back pain, neck pain, and a horrible slouch for years. Thanks to Dr. Mike Shahbazian, I am now relieved of all back and neck pain, he helped me overcome slouching, and has even made me a healthier person through the Purification Workshop. But that's not all, when I hurt my shin in a skiing accident, they took care of that too! Everyone there is so nice, attentive, helpful, and extremely knowledgeable. I'm so glad I started going to Flintridge Family Chiropractic and Dr. Mike. I look forward to all my appointments, and seeing my new friends at FCC.Amanda B.
I can't say enough good things about The Flintridge Family Chiropractic. The initial consultation was so thorough and gave me a great insight as to what some of my issues are. Dr. Mike Shahbazian takes the time to find out about you and explains his assessment and walks you throughout the process. It is apparent that Dr. Mike is in love with his profession and has a passion for providing quality care and maintaining his patients' good posture and subtle nuances of the skeletal, muscular and nervous systems. The reason Dr. Mike Shahbazian receives 5 stars is simply he is the BEST. He has reduced pain and discomfort from my body. He sincerely cares about his patients' wellness and every time I go there I feel like I am so welcomed. He is good at appointment time as well. I never waited more than 5 to 10 minutes. Flintridge Family Chiropractic is very well managed and run by the doctors. The office is urban yet inviting and comfortable. The entire team at Flintridge Family Chiropractic are friendly, professional and caring. This practice has so much soul, positive energy and vibrant spirit! As a small business owner, I love this place and send any of my clients here that ask for a chiropractic recommendation. No hesitation! :)Gayane M.
I really love going to get adjusted. I have had back issues my whole life. I can't say enough about Dr. Mike Shahbazian and his commitment to whole body wellness. I have been seeing Dr Mike for about two months and in that time he has fixed my sore lower back, my stiff neck and treated my hip issues. He has a way of making you feel like you are his only patient and explaining everything in detail so you know exactly why your injury happened and how to prevent it in the future. His office has a wonderful warm and inviting feel and the staff are very professional. If there were more stars to give he would get them all. Dr Mike is an expert and you will love the care you will get!Garo K.
This is a very welcoming clinic - right away I felt like I'd come to the right place. The staff always look happy, which is a good sign! Dr. Mike is very good at explaining what the problem is and what the recommended course of treatment will accomplish and in a realistic time frame. Treatment is effective and there is no waiting to receive treatment although the place is usually very busy. Good scheduling control which can be a challenge in any medical practice. They treat every age - babies to the baby boomers! I'm now almost pain free in my foot after only 4 or 5 treatments. There is no pressure here to sign up for blocks of treatment, or to buy their supplements. Have full confidence that you or your family member will receive excellent care in a very pleasant environment if you come to Flintridge Family Chiropractic.Leah S.
