Meet Dr. Curt Frogley

I’ve known I wanted to be a chiropractor ever since I was a little kid. My father is a chiropractor, so I witnessed firsthand what he was able to do and how he could help people.”

Though Dr. Frogley briefly thought of becoming a medical doctor, he knew that he didn’t want to put people on medications so he chose chiropractic.

Obtaining a Chiropractic Education

Chiropractor New Bern, Dr. Kurt FrogleyAfter he earned his bachelor’s at Brigham Young University in Utah, Dr. Frogley went to Palmer College of Chiropractic in Davenport, Iowa, and earned his Doctor of Chiropractic in 1993. Dr. Frogley also was born and raised in Davenp0rt. His father, who also is a graduate of Palmer, served as a professor there.

Dr. Frogley went on to get certification in the following:

  • Functional medicine
  • Kinesiology taping
  • X-rays

Fighting Fatigue With Functional Medicine

Even though Dr. Frogley was getting adjusted regularly and thought he was eating healthy and exercising, he had chronic fatigue and pain—so much so that he thought he was going to have to retire some years ago.

“All of my joints hurt, and it hurt me to adjust patients who would come into the office. When I would have a break, I’d sit down for a second. I would be so fatigued that I felt like I couldn’t even hardly get out of my chair.”

For Dr. Frogley, it took considerable willpower to get up and adjust patients. He thought he would have to retire but thought, “I can’t retire. I still have young kids and need to take care of my family.”

Getting help from his chiropractor brother

Dr. Frogley’s experience led him to seek the assistance of one of his brothers, who also is a chiropractor. His brother was doing functional medicine at the time. Though Dr. Frogley didn’t know a lot about functional medicine at the time, he called his brother, who gave him some advice and started him on the functional medicine path.

“I thought, ‘If I’m going to heal myself, I need to study.’” 

So study he did. Dr. Frogley started to go to seminars and learn about nutritional, functional medicine. “I discovered how the whole body works as all the systems work together instead of just looking at one system.”

Dr. Frogley finds it fulfilling to help his patients with both chiropractic and functional medicine. He also offers nutrition counseling.
