BILL McAFEE, DC

Dr. McAfee has served Fairbanks as a Chiropractic physician for over 23 years. His desire to help those in pain who are not able to respond to other care, lead him to pursue ground breaking education. He is a certified Advanced Practice Chiropractic Physician.

If you have struggled with chronic leg, arm, back, and neck pain, headaches, recent acute numbness, and pain… come Dr. McAfee.

McAfee is one of two chiropractors that has pursued special medical training that allows him to perform procedures no other chiropractor in Fairbanks can.

Schools attended/degrees:

  • University of Alaska, Fairbanks - BA in Physical Education

  • United States Sports Academy - MS in Exercise Physiology (Magnum Cum Laude)

  • Palmer College of Chiropractic Davenport - Doctorate of Chiropractic (Sigma Cum Laude)

Awards/Special Training:

  1. Prolotherapy - an injection technique using all natural substances to help your body repair ligament tendons and joints. If you see a chiropractor frequently you may have hypermobile joints that prolotherapy may fix.

  2. Headache Management - many suffer from chronic headaches due to myofacial points of tension in the face, head, and neck. Dr. McAfee uses natural Serapin (a long lasting antisthetic) to “shut the pain down” resulting in long lasting headache relief (not all headaches are due to this problem).

  3. Trigger Point Relief - if you suffer from active “knots” in your muscles that can refer pain when pressed on, injection of these points can provide long lasting a even permanent relief.

  4. Nerve Conduction and Electromyography (EMG) - Dr. McAfee is a Fellow of Electrodiagnosis. If you have numbness, pain, atrophy of muscle, sciatica, this test can tell you what is wrong and what needs to be done to fix it.
