DR. SCHROEDER CHIROPRACTIC CARE AND LASER THERAPY
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.

I began seeing Dr. Schroeder two years ago after experiencing knee pain when running. She quickly found the source of the problem and began treating it with adjustments. She helped me stay ahead of the problem with regular adjustments and at-home stretches.I was able to continue running pain free! She has always been very positive, personable and professional. She takes an interest in her patients' lives and often asked about my career, family, and fitness goals. I always looked forward to my visits with Dr. Schroeder! ~ Casey D, Virginia
