ABOUT DR. SCHROEDER
Dr. Schroeder has a unique background. Her first career choice was working as a Pediatric Intensive Care Unit (PICU) Registered Nurse for six years before deciding to enter the chiropractic field. Working as a PICU nurse, she became frustrated that she couldn’t do more to help her patients at times. A lower back injury landed her in a chiropractor’s office, and immediately she knew she had found her calling. Within one year she was back in school, eager to be able to help patients using only her hands to correct their problems, not just mask their symptoms.
Dr. Schroeder has been on the other side- as a patient, debilitated by lower back and neck pain, and wanting answers! She understands how frustrating it can be to see provider after provider and still not have a solution to your problems. Many people find Dr. Schroeder after already trying many other medical providers and are excited to learn that there is hope for them, and that they don’t have to suffer any longer. If Dr. Schroeder can’t help you she will be the first to refer you to another provider.
Dr. Schroeder studied chiropractic at Palmer College of Chiropractic West in San Jose, California, graduating as class salutatorian with magna cum laude honors. Dr. Schroeder was an active member of the Sports Council Program, where she was able to treat a variety of athletes around the Bay Area of California. She treated ultra-marathon runners and rugby players, to motocross athletes and weekend warriors. It was here that she fine-tuned her skills to help athletes maximize performance while minimizing injury.
Dr. Schroeder has spent time working in private practices and at a Veteran's Affairs clinic as a chiropractor. Her passion is empowering her patients to take their health into their own hands to improve their quality of life.
In her spare time, Dr. Schroeder loves traveling and spending time outdoors, including hiking, biking, running and snowboarding. She also enjoys crossfit and yoga classes. She has competed in a number of athletic races, including Half Marathons, 10Ks, 5Ks and a Spartan Beast Race.

Chiropractic Care For Pregnancy
Chiropractic care during pregnancy and post-partum are vital in maintaining a woman's health and vitality. Dr. Schroeder is certified in the Webster Technique, which focuses on maintaining the mother's pelvic alignment and nervous system function. This in turn balances pelvic muscles and ligaments, which reduces torsion to the uterus. Chiropractic care is effective in treating pregnancy related lower back complaints, as well as complaints in the neck, mid back, headaches, leg and hip pain and ligament/muscle related discomfort. The following are additional possible benefits of chiropractic care during pregnancy and post-partum: decreased soreness, improved posture, optimal fetal positioning, shorter labor and delivery time, reduced risk of breech baby, reduced risk of C-Section, easier recovery post-partum
or a manipulation, is a therapeutic procedure aimed at restoring motion to a joint that has become restricted due to tissue injury. Tissues are often injured from a traumatic event, like a car accident or a sports injury, or from slumped posture while sitting at the computer or even from lifting improperly. When tissues are injured, they undergo physical and chemical changes that create pain and inflammation, which leads to a decreased function. Manipulation of an involved joint helps to restore normal motion, break up scar tissue and decrease muscle tension and tightness to help with the healing process.
