Dr. Frackson is a native Victorian who developed an interest in Chiropractic while playing rugby in high school.
After studies at Camosun College and UVic, he attended the Canadian Memorial Chiropractic College in Toronto where he graduated in 1992. Since then he has maintained his passion for learning by attaining a year’s post graduate training in sports injury treatment, spinal exercise rehabilitation and maternity/pediatrics.
A married father of three children, Dr. Frackson devotes a good portion of his practice to the treatment of expectant moms and children. Providing drug free treatment for pregnant women with back or pelvic pain is especially gratifying.
As one who has trained for and run 4 marathons he also enjoys treating athletes and those just trying to stay in shape through exercise and diet. In 2009 he received his Masters of Science in Nutrition from the University of Bridgeport in Connecticut. The importance of diet in his marathon training led to the pursuit of this degree.
Learning about topics such as Kinesiotaping (as seen in the last 5 Olympic games), Functional Movement Systems used by athletic trainers to screen for injury risk, and Dynamic Neuromuscular Stabilization used in Europe for the past 15 years to break damaging movement patterns, Dr. Frackson continues to be well trained in the latest forms of physical injury treatment.Back to Top

Amy was born just outside of Vancouver B.C, but has been raised in Victoria her whole life and she wouldn't have wanted it any other way.
Working in an office that feels like family is great, working in an office that is family is even better. As a patient of Dr. Frackson for many years and the niece of Krista Frackson, Amy knows first hand how the chiropractic lifestyle improves full body motion and improves quality of life.
She joined the office family in Spring 2014, when Jaime went on to have baby number two, the beautiful "Annalee", Jaime is now back with us and Amy is here to stay.
When she's not the smiling face behind the front desk, Amy enjoys socializing with friends, going out for dinner, as well as heading to the movie theatre to catch the latest flick. One of her favourite hobbies is cooking healthy and delicious meals with family and friends, but due to her food allergies she's always on the hunt for the best "dairy free" recipes for dinner and dessert.

Krista, our office manager, as well as Dr. Ted’s wife, has been working in the office since it began in 1992. Over the years (as their children got older) Krista increased her time in the office and now has the role of office manager. This includes reception duties, billings, payroll and accounting.
The most recent undertaking for Krista has been to transition the office to a paperless charting and billing software. It has been extremely exciting to watch our small practice with just one chiropractor grow into a multi-disciplinary health centre. The greatest joy for Krista is when patients comment on the wonderful family atmosphere they feel when visiting the office. That is the greatest goal for both Krista and Dr. Ted, to treat each person that walks into the office as family and to do their utmost to find the care that is best for them.
Krista and Dr. Ted have loved being able to raise their family in the city of Victoria, where they grew up together. They have three children, all of whom are attending post secondary education. In 2016 Krista and Dr. Ted will celebrate their 25th wedding anniversary. Friends and family are continually amazed that this couple can work together and stay happily married.
When they are not working together in the office, Krista and Dr. Ted love to spend time with family and friends. You will also discover that this couple has an extreme passion for travel. These holidays include rest and relaxation along with some ziplining, snorkelling, hiking and any other exciting excursions that Krista seems inclined to sign them up for. Krista feels blessed to spend a great part of her day with the wonderful patients that attend the office, whom over time, have come to feel like part of the family.Back to Top
