Prescott Chiropractor Dr. Donald B. Schueller

Because we live in a drug/sickness oriented society, most people have a great difficulty accepting what chiropractic can and does accomplish for patients every day.

Based on numerous tests in a career compatibility class in high school, my career path was listed as: Machinist/welder/pipe fitter, Chiropractor, and Osteopath. In that order. I can’t make much of a connection there either except for, all involve manual dexterity.

The chiropractic and osteopath route afforded me the opportunity to play football for 2 more years, along with taking more chemistry, sciences and biology. Not a bad way to get a good science background.

While in college, I started seeing a failure with certain aspects of modern western medical practices i.e. side effects , ineffective and/or harmful treatments, dangerous drugs. The failure to effectively treat musculoskeletal disorders was what lead me to chiropractic.  It seemed far and away the more rational choice.

My Chiropractic Journey

I attended Lakewood Community College for my undergraduate degree applied to, and was accepted at Northwestern College of Chiropractic. The amount of science required while in chiropractic college was both demanding and, looking back, very rewarding as it gave a very solid base for my further chiropractic education. The most challenging class was Anatomy. I studied continuously to learn it. Since graduating in 1986, I have found, those difficult classes were an enormous benefit, as they enhance patient treatment and outcomes everyday.

My Practice Philosophy

My goal as a chiropractor is to direct the body to heal itself without drugs. By treating you with an eye to how your body should move and function in its optimal state, chiropractic works to restore it to that state. My job as a health care provider is to focus on what is needed by the patient each time I see them. Balance in your life, the so called work/life balance is one aspect, is critical to your well being. An old wife’s saying sums it up best,” all things in moderation”.

Personally

I met my wife in 1986. We have 3 children 21, 19, and 9 years of age. As a family we engage in a range of activities from a brisk walk to, camping, hiking, reading, games and family movie/game nights. Away from the practice I do many unrelated activities, woodwork, metalwork, many outdoor activities, motorcycling, canoeing and kayaking.

My community involvement is usually the occasional helping out at a sporting or school event for the kids or donating to worthy causes as I tend to be introverted (or what is now called social anxiety disorder, and now there’s a pill for that too).

I am activity oriented.

I am active on a daily basis. Our diets are more whole foods based vs the standard American diet. To guide food choices use this criteria, if you can’t pronounce it, or you need a chemistry degree to do so, it shouldn’t be going in your mouth. I know that is harsh but it gets the point across more than preaching to people. I do not believe in the efficacy of so called routine vaccinations especially for children, especially with the numerous studies that show that any protection is not permanent. Whereas if a child acquires one of the historically “Normal Childhood” diseases, their risk of serious complications or death are almost nil if they have good physical hygiene and, they are fully immune for life. My children have had in total 1 course of antibiotics (which did not work). Since that time we have used only chiropractic, nutrition and good physical hygiene, to enhance their immunologic response. Pain relievers do have a place but not as a daily or even weekly part of your health regimen. You owe it to yourself to find the root of the problem than to cover it up with a drug. This last sentence requires, what can be very uncomfortable honesty with yourself.
