Dr. O’Halloran has twenty five years of experience in the realm of preventing injuries and illnesses. Dr. Sheila graduated from Palmer College of Chiropractic-West in 1987. During her six years of formal education, she was committed to acquiring all of the knowledge available to her, so that she could help people lead happier, healthier lives. She says that learning about the human body to that degree was absolutely fascinating. After graduating from Palmer, Dr. Sheila opened Family Health Chiropractic Center in the San Francisco Bay Area. For fifteen years she and her team treated over forty patients a day. During that time she helped thousands of patients recover from painful injuries, giving them the ability to live happy, healthy, and pain-free lives.

Dr. O’Halloran worked with many injured workers in her practice and fully understands how devastating these injuries are for employers, the injured worker and their families. She feels that what moved her most was the heart-breaking realization that most of the injuries which brought these patients into her office for help could have easily been prevented. She also knew that some of the damage they had suffered may never completely go away.

Preventing injuries and illnesses became Dr. Sheila’s primary focus and her ultimate goal. She incorporated her experience and her Chiropractic disciplines to create a unique and effective industrial injury prevention training program. Along with caring for her patients, Dr. Sheila began delivering her trainings to local businesses. For years she trained numerous police and fire agencies, material-handlers such as UPS and PG&E and large office entities such as Oracle, Gilead Sciences and Raychem. In 2001, Dr. Sheila sold her practice and launched a new company, Balance and Motion for Health. She returned to school in order to further her education by completing an ergonomics certification program. Her company is now dedicated entirely to ergonomics and the prevention of Musculoskeletal Disorders (MSDs), injuries and illnesses in the workplace, and for families. Her expertise, passion and her ability to reach people at a core level, have transformed the lives of many individuals, their families, as well as the organizations they work for.

Dr. O’Halloran then partnered with Mark Worthen. Together they founded a new company, Accurate Ergonomics. Balance and Motion for Health is now the training division of Accurate Ergonomics. They have added an array of new services designed to achieve highly effective, positive, and measurable results for every organization and every employee. Dr. Sheila and Mark have developed an Ergonomics and MSD Injury and Illness Prevention system and process, which guarantee sustainable results.

Dr. Sheila was born in San Francisco and raised in the Bay Area, California. She is the current president of the Grapevine Section of the San Francisco Chapter of the American Society of Safety Engineers. She also maintains her strong affiliation to her original profession as an active member of the California Chiropractic Association (CCA). She is proud to have supported the CCA throughout her entire Chiropractic College education and her professional practice years!
