At the age of 20 Dr. Edwards was introduced to chiropractic to help correct low back pain problems. His pain had become so bad that it was hard to walk, sit (especially in a car), stand still for more that 5 minutes, and exercise which he really enjoyed. At the encouragement of a friend he went to see a chiropractor and within two weeks he was 80% better. Since then he has been a strong proponent of chiropractic and that was the driving force that eventually moved him to become a doctor of chiropractic.
Dr. Chris Edwards received his chiropractic degree from Northwestern Health Sciences University in Bloomington, Minnesota, in 2008. He received his undergraduate degree from University of Wisconsin Eau Claire in Biology in 2005.
Dr. Edwards began his professional chiropractor practice in 2009 in Shakopee, Minnesota as an associate at Bridge Chiropractic. In 2010 he founded Ascension Chiropractic in Shakopee, Minnesota which was a mobile chiropractic practice. He worked extensively with assisted and independent living homes patients bringing chiropractic to those who were unable to access it. He also treated patients in homes and businesses. In December of 2011 he joined the team at Stucky Chiropractic Center in the Eau Claire and Chippewa Falls area as an associate doctor.
Dr. Edwards works with patients of all ages and has special training in Graston Technique for chronic muscle issues as well as cranial-sacral therapy certification. He thanks God daily for the opportunity to be a chiropractor and to help others find healing through the chiropractic.
When he is not at the office he enjoys the outdoors fishing, hunting, exercising, or working outside on special home and garden projects. He also enjoys an active family life with his wife Yvette and two daughters Annika and Sara. His best advice for raising children is to remember they are a handful some of the time and a heart-full all of the time!
He also spent 20 years in the Army National Guard as a combat engineer with the 724th Engineer Battalion. He retired in 2005 as a Sergeant First Class after serving a year in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom.
