Dr. Carson Robertson is a native of central Montana and obtained his bachelor's degree at the University of Montana. He subsequently earned his chiropractic degree from Northwestern Health Sciences University in Minnesota in 2004. While an athlete in school, he saw the benefits of chiropractic after an injury sidelined him. With that in mind, his clinic has a special emphasis and expertise in athletic injuries.
Dr. Robertson has also been an adjunct faculty member at Paradise Valley Community College since 2009, where he teaches an Anatomy and Physiology class. Education, information, articles, multimedia teaching materials and videos bridge the PVCC classroom and the clinic.
Since moving to Arizona in 2005, Dr. Robertson has lived in the Ahwatukee and Chandler communities. He is active in local organizations such as the Arizona Association of Chiropractic, American Chiropractic Association and Chandler Chamber of Commerce. He also volunteers with the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society's Team in Training and leads a Toy Drive every holiday season.
When the doctor is not working he can often be found running the trails of South Mountain. He has run 10 marathons and multiple ultra marathons, including the Crown King Scramble 50K, Javelina 100K and Javelina 100 Miler.

Frances joined the Alpha Chiropractic family in 2016 as an intern. She quickly learned the ropes and was promoted to the office Alpha Dog. She loves greeting patients and distracting them from their treatments through wiggles, tricks, treats and encouraged pets. Frances is a part of a certified therapy dog team through Pet Partners. When she’s not looking at you through those shaggy eyebrows, she’s probably chasing a ball down, rolling around in the grass or volunteering with Paws 2 Read.
While most of our patients love having a therapy dog around, we understand that not everyone may be comfortable with this. Please let us know if you prefer Frances directs her attention and wiggles elsewhere.
Lola joined Alpha Chiropractic in 2020 as Community Outreach (and scratch) Coordinator. Alpha Dog Frances has taken Lola under her wing to teach her where all the treats and beds are located throughout the office, and which patients are most generous with said treats.
Lola loves to pounce, run, nudge, chase, and otherwise distract patients with her pouf of curls and sweet eyes. She will do nearly anything for a belly rub. Outside of the office, she enjoys stealing toddler toys, snacks, and cuddles.
