Why I Committed My Life to Chiropractic Care

Phoenix chiropractor, Dr. Fred Schofield was born and raised in Cape Town, South Africa. He grew up playing rugby, tennis and cricket with his two brothers. Dr. Fred moved to the U.S.A. in 1978 to attend Palmer Chiropractic College in Davenport, IA. While in chiropractic school, Dr. Fred was the player coach of the Palmer Rugby Team and lead the team to two national championships. He was married in 1981 to Susan Schofield and was selected to play rugby for the U.S.A. Dr. Fred worked in Michigan for 2 years before he and Susan left in search of a warmer climate. When they reached Arizona they fell in love with the desert and raised their 3 beautiful children Dr. F.J., Dr. Paxton, and Gira in Phoenix. For the last 27 years Dr Fred has been serving the people of Arizona at his northwest Phoenix location.

Dr Fred knows what it is like to suffer from neck and back pain. That is why he has committed his life to serving those in pain. “I was kicked in the back in a rugby game and suffered chronic low back and neck pain for 9 years! My father was a medical doctor and chiropractic was off limits. However, when after 9 years I was still in pain, I was willing to do anything. That is when I went to see a chiropractor for the first time. My pain was gone after the first chiropractic adjustment. It was right then that I decided to become a chiropractor.”

Atlas Chiropractic’s Adjusting Techniques & Nutritional Strategies

Atlas Chiropractic’s adjusting techniques and nutritional strategies have proven to be effective for headaches, neck pain, migraines, back pain, sciatica, whiplash, asthma, allergies, acid reflux, high blood pressure, high cholesterol and fibromyalgia.

Atlas Chiropractic’s Philosophy

atlas missionAtlas Chiropractic’s philosophy is that the body was built to be healthy. If you are not healthy then there must be a cause preventing your body from functioning properly. Our job is to find that hidden cause by evaluating and analyzing every system in your body.

First, we start with the nervous system, because as Gray’s Anatomy states “The central nervous system controls and coordinates every other cell, tissue and organ in the body.” We have many different chiropractic techniques all designed to improve the structure of your spine and restore proper nervous system function.

Then we can use our nutritional surveys or hair mineral analysis to evaluate how the other 5 systems (Glandular, Digestive, Eliminative and Circulatory/Lymphatic) in your body are functioning. We have many herbs, supplements and homeopathic medicines that can also help strengthen the weakened system.

Your First Visit North West Phoenix Atlas Chiropratic

When you come to Atlas Chiropractic, we will perform a thorough Consultation and Chiropractic Exam to assess if you have a subluxation in your spine causing your problem. A subluxation is when a bone in your spine is out of alignment. This spinal condition can negatively effect your body in 2 ways.

First, it creates nerve interference. Your brain controls everything in your body, and it does this by using the nerves – like cell phones, to communicate with the heart, liver, etc… When a subluxation occurs, it prevents some of this information from getting through – just like a cell phone that has a weak signal. When this happens if the subluxation is left uncorrected, over time the organ the nerve is supplying will begin to malfunction. This organ malfunction can create conditions such as high blood pressure, asthma, acid reflux, neck pain and low back pain.

The second effect of a subluxation is accelerated decay or degeneration, like a cavity in your spine. The research shows that a spine out of alignment degenerates far more rapidly than a spine in alignment. If during the evaluation process we find you have a subluxation then we will take x-rays of the subluxated area. We will analyze these x-rays to find out how severe the subluxation is and if we can help you. If we can help you, we will give you our recommendations for relief and correction and you, the patient can choose what fits into your schedule and budget.
