Dr. Derrick Frederick

From Chemistry to Drug-Free Care

Winnipeg chiropractor, Dr. Derrick FrederickPreviously a chemist, Dr. Frederick graduated from the University of Winnipeg in 1985 with a Bachelor of Science in Chemistry and Microbiology. His first encounter with chiropractic was listening to a chiropractor present a special doctor’s report. “I wasn’t a patient but just came to hear him explain what chiropractic was all about. I was 28 years old at the time and thought, ‘How did I never hear about this?'” He thought that chiropractic made perfect sense and liked that it’s natural.

“Once I learned what chiropractic was-the nervous system controlling the healing of the body-I realized it was an alignment with my belief system and core values.” Dr. Frederick was ready to take the plunge into chiropractic.

Unlike chemistry, chiropractic focused on the natural. “It just made sense to me that the body didn’t need a bunch more chemicals poured into it. It was capable of healing itself if you did the right things for it.”
