2 things come to mind when you think of Dr. Terry Schroeder: Olympic Water Polo and Chiropractic.
Dr. Schroeder is Team USA’s only six-time Olympian in the sport of water polo. As the team captain in 1984 and 1988, he led the team to Olympic silver medals. He was named the Player of the World in 1981 and 1985. Dr. Schroeder served as head coach for the USA Olympic Water Polo team in the 2008 Beijing Olympics, where he led the team to its first Olympic medal (a silver) in 20 years, and the 2012 London Olympics.

Dr. Schroeder is a Magna Cum Laude Sports Medicine graduate of Pepperdine University and a Cum Laude graduate of Palmer College of Chiropractic. He has been in practice together with his wife Dr. Lori Schroeder since 1986 and they have two daughters.
“I’ve had the opportunity to treat Olympians and elite athletes in many sports, however I truly enjoy the family nature of our practice.” he says. “I always thought that my Dad was a ‘miracle man’. He loved what he did and he was very proud of the fact that his dad was also a chiropractor. From a very young age I knew that I wanted to be a part of this profession.”
