Meet Dr. F.J. Schofield

Dr. F.J. Schofield was born in Holland, Michigan and raised in Phoenix, Arizona. His father was a world-renowned chiropractor and his mother was a nutritionist and herbalist. Together, they taught him the importance of a holistic and drug-free lifestyle. Dr. F.J. grew up loving sports and excelling in tennis, leading him to attend Florida Atlantic University on a tennis scholarship.

Dr. FJ was playing college tennis at Florida Atlantic University, down in Boca Raton, Fl. (Living a Mile from the beach!!!) He was living his dream of playing a college sport and having a successful Freshman Year. Winning most of his matches and doing well in class-everything was great.

Then towards the end of the regular season, he was playing a match at the University Of Central Florida in Orlando. During his singles match, his life changed forever.

Dr. FJ went back to hit an overhead and his back lit up with pain. He continued to play and ended up losing the match. After the match, his back continued to get tighter and tighter. The pain continued to get worse as well. Dr. FJ, like most people, thought the pain would go away. Eventually, he could no longer play because the pain was so bad.

He went to his trainer who did ice, heat, electric stimulation, ultrasound, and massage, but nothing worked. He could not sleep at night, could not sit in class comfortably, and was miserable all the time.

This experience taught him one of the greatest lessons of his life, if you don’t have your health and feel good nothing else matters. A few months earlier he had been living his dream and now he was angry and exhausted all the time. One night Dr. FJ laid in bed and cried because he didn’t want to feel this way anymore.

Finally, the semester ended. Dr. FJ went home and his dad, a chiropractor, evaluated his back. He adjusted a few bones in his back and Dr. FJ finally had some relief. He always thought he would be a chiropractor, but that experience made him extremely passionate about helping to ease people’s suffering.

Fast forward 8 years. Dr. FJ opened his chiropractic office in West Bend with his wife, Dr. Korie. Dr. FJ had found that if he got a standard chiropractic adjustment every 2-4 weeks his back was ok, but it was never fully fixed. About 6 months after opening his practice the pain quit going away. Dr. FJ was getting adjusted 2-3 times a week and was still having pain. He saw the same experience with his patients after a standard adjustment. They would feel great for a day or two, but then they would need to get adjusted again.

This is when Dr. FJ realized he was wrong. He thought if you got the spine moving and released tension it would find it’s proper alignment, but that was not happening. Many of his patient’s x-rays were not improving, their posture was not changing and most importantly their problems many times were never completely going away.

It was around this time that Dr. FJ went to a W.I.N. networking meeting through the chamber.  A lady told him she drove all the way to Tomah, WI to receive a NUCCA adjustment, and that is the only thing that fixed her sciatica. She had tried regular chiropractic, medical doctors & physical therapy, but nothing had helped her.

After going to many seminars, Dr. FJ received his first Upper Cervical Adjustment at an Orthospinology seminar in Atlanta and his pain went away completely.  Dr. FJ held that adjustment for over 6 months. He immediately signed up and was trained in Orthospinology. After a few years of using their instrument, he decided to learn NUCCA, a similar Upper Cervical Chiropractic technique that uses the hands to gently correct the body’s alignment.

Dr. FJ realized his mistake. Before, he was not understanding how the body worked. Individual bones can’t misalign without the entire body going out of alignment because they all move together. You can adjust an individual bone to release tension, but the only way to correct alignment is to center the head over the neck, and neck over tailbone.

This correction will level out the shoulders and hips, removing pressure on the nerves in the upper neck that control postural muscles, heart, lungs, and many other organs.  By improving how your body moves through gravity and how the nerves function, Upper Cervical Chiropractic techniques like NUCCA have been shown to help with chronic pain, Fibromyalgia, Neuropathy, Asthma, Migraine’s, Vertigo, Headaches, knee pain, shoulder pain, and much more.
