Meet Derek Buck, M.D., D.C.

Dr. Derek Buck

Dr. Buck studied general medicine at Ross University School of Medicine on the island of Roseau Dominica, which is located in the West Indies. His residency was in physical medicine and rehabilitation. In Richmond, Virginia, he completed his fellowship training in interventional spine.

Before becoming an Interventional and Spine Care Specialist, Dr. Buck was a sports medicine chiropractor. As his knowledge and skill set increased over those 10 years of chiropractic practice, he wanted to provide more care options for his patients than chiropractic allowed. He found interventional spine care to be the best path forward, and thus began his transition.

A typical day for Dr. Buck includes diagnosing and treating spinal conditions using minimally-invasive techniques. His diagnoses and treatments are guided by evidence-based care, meaning that he uses research to determine a patient’s source of pain and the best treatment plan forward.

Dr. Buck enjoys helping his patients feel better. Seeing his patients respond to the care and regain their quality of life is the most rewarding part of his job.

When he’s not in the office, you will find Dr. Buck and his wife cheering for their kids from the sidelines at their sporting events. Their daughter plays volleyball and their son rotates between football and baseball. He and his family also spend time enjoying the outdoors, whether that means kayaking, canoeing, or camping. Buffalo National River in Arkansas is one of their favorite places to explore as a family.

Seeing patients respond to the care and regain their quality of life is the most rewarding part of my job!”
