Christopher J. Fox, DC, ATC(L)
Dr. Chris Fox’s vibrant career in healthcare began over 20 years ago. He uses a combination of traditional Sports Medicine, Chiropractic, Active Release™ Techniques (ART) and SpiderTech™ Therapy in his practice. He has successfully treated the bodies of injured professional football and hockey players; the feet and legs of thousands of runners and triathletes; and the backs of many golfers and tennis players.
Dr. Fox takes great pleasure in working with all people, not just athletes. He can be quoted in his office on a regular basis saying, “we take care of the physically active and those who want to be physically active again. Athlete or non-athlete, the same principles of prevention, treatment and recovery apply to the human frame.”
He earned his Sports Medicine degree from Northeastern University and began his career as an intern in the Boston College Sports Medicine Department. After graduation he joined the ranks of the New York Jets Football Club as an Athletic Trainer. He continued expanding his knowledge and acquiring skills at the University of Connecticut by studying Sport Biomechanics and working in the Sports Medicine Department. Dr. Fox furthered his career in Sports Medicine with the USA Women’s National Field Hockey program as the Head Athletic Trainer for the 1996 Olympic Women’s Field Hockey team in Atlanta, Georgia.
In 2000, Dr. Fox completed his chiropractic degree from Life University and moved to Nashville, Tennessee and was in private practice. He was the Team Chiropractor for the Nashville Predators ice hockey team and worked with many of the Tennessee Titans football players.
Today, Dr. Fox is the proud owner of Fox Spine + Sports Medicine in West Palm Beach, Florida. In addition to his private practice he works with Palm Beach Atlantic University as their Team Chiropractor and is on staff as an adjunct professor in the Sports Medicine Department. Dr. Fox regularly helps with the Florida Atlantic University Rugby Team, Palm Beach Rugby Team, the Bahamian National Rugby Team, and the Palm Beach Punishers professional women’s football team as their Chiropractor and Athletic Trainer. Dr. Fox is an active member of the West Palm Beach community and is the current President of The Palm Beach Road Runners.
Dr. Fox knows athletes not only because he treats their injuries but because he is an athlete. He received a full academic/athletic scholarship to Northeastern University and earned a varsity letter in crew. He has run 17 marathons and competed in hundreds of 5k, 10k, half marathons, and triathlon events. He was an Ironman finisher in 2008 in Panama City, Florida. Dr. Fox lives locally in West Palm Beach, is married and has a daughter.
