About Dr Chuck
The first thing you notice when you meet Dr Fredricks is that he is big. He is big enough to and has successfully treated NFL lineman yet many times he's been referred to as the "gentle giant" by many of his elderly patients.
When he's not helping patients, Dr Fredricks is learning how to better help his patients, staying physically active and learning new skills. He enjoys working with his hands, walking his dogs, fishing, preparing for triathlons with his wife Angie, strength training, building and working on bicycles. He is also a volunteer trail builder so that more people can get outside and enjoy nature. Dr Fredricks also enjoys helping fellow athletes. He is a volunteer ART provider at sporting events like local triathlons, running and cycling events.
Dr Fredricks is an ultra runner, triathlete and mountain biker on the Boulevard Cycling team too. He has the experience of successfully completing and sometimes even placing in over 40 events over the past 10 years. He understands the wants and needs of endurance athletes. This is what distinguishes him from the majority of other chiropractors and soft tissue care providers.

Dr Fredricks graduated from Graceland College in Lamoni, Iowa while earning a degree in Biology. During that time he was also a coach for the women's volleyball program, an all American athlete in the men's volleyball program and the assistant coach for the men's national championship team in 1998. Because of the stubborn, chronic injuries he sustained while competing and training he decided to enroll at Cleveland chiropractic college to heal his own injuries and help others successfully avoid and or recover from their injuries. It was there that he pursued interest in anatomy, rehabilitation, exercise and nutrition.
Upon graduating he took a priceless internship working for Dr's Deed and Shirlene Harrison in Elko, Nevada. It was here that he earned basic and advanced certifications while getting real world hands on training in the structural rehabilitation of the spine and posture.
