Dr.Christopher FreyYour Fairfax Chiropractor
Dr. Christopher Frey graduated from National College of Chiropractic in 1980 with a BS in human anatomy and a doctorate in chiropractic. Before entering chiropractic he had a seven year career in modern dance with two world renown companies: Lar Lubovitch Dance Company and Nederlands Dans Theatre. He and Jamie, his wife of over 30 years, have 3 grown children. Jacob, a lawyer, is now City Councilman for the 3rd Ward of Minneapolis. He was formerly a world class marathoner representing the US in the Pan American Games. Asa holds a Bachelor's in Communications from Boston University where he played Division 1 soccer. His Doctorate in Chiropractic is from Life University where he lead the soccer team to three championships. He and his wife Joanna (also a chiropractor) are opening a practice in Puerto Rico. Alida is an accomplished artist with a BFA from Boston University. She currently lives with her Great Dane Eloise and her Danif Gypsy in California.
Dr. Frey brings a vast working knowledge of biomechanics to his healing art through his experience in dance and gymnastics. His practice is made up of families (4 generations in several families), athletes and proactive health explorers of all ages. He finds his work with infants and children particularly gratifying. 'Allowing full potential to blossom from an early age prevents a plethora of childhood conditions and arthritic degeneration over the years. It also helps kids grow up happy and communicate well with their peers, teachers and family. The neurology of the bones, muscles and skin are just as important to development as the special senses of sight and hearing. This tends to get taken for granted in health and education. Chiropractic helps kids and adults learn with their bodies and their imagination as well as their eyes, ears and voices.'
As a member of the American Chiropractic Association and a former board member of the Virginia Chiropractic Association, Dr. Frey is active in legislative initiatives to gain parity for chiropractic patients. His passion is to see the associations work together toward that end. He has testified in court many times and is a sought after, inspiring health speaker for employee, school and temple/church groups.
Dr. Frey is a Certified Chiropractic Rehabilitation Doctor and keeps current with research in neurology, pediatrics, x-ray, orthopedics, scoliosis, clinical nutrition and the latest chiropractic techniques. He completes at least 48 hours of continuing education each year.
'Rehab is so important to spinal and extremity healing and stabilization. Most patients engage in specific strengthening, stretching and neuro-kinetic proprioceptive exercises. Our rehab suite has just been enlarged and is equipped with a broad array of tools for these purposes.'
