Dr. James Strunk


There are many different techniques in the Field of Chiropractic.  My Goal has always been to deliver the very best type of care for each individual.  I take time with patients each visit to determine if an adjustment is actually needed.  I strive to give my patients the highest quality care available and that is why I have invested so many hours learning how to deliver Upper Cervical Care.  This single technique reaches a much broader spectrum of symptoms is very gentle and provides objective evidence that an adjustment has actually done what it was designed to do, relieve pressure on the nervous system. This allows us to make fewer adjustments and know when and when not to deliver an adjustment.

I began my journey into the health care world while enlisted in the United States Army. I was an airborne paratrooper with the Special Forces at Fort Bragg in North Carolina. I had injuries to my back and knees which led me to seek medical attention. It seemed the only solution available to soldiers at that time was medication and rest. This proved to be only a temporary fix and I knew that somehow more could be done to help with my conditions. To make a long story short I eventually found Chiropractic care to be a more natural solution to my problems, and I did not have to suffer from the side effects of medication. I knew then, what I wanted to do for the rest of my life.

It still amazes me to this day how many patients are told that “nothing is wrong with them” or “it’s all in your head”! If you’ve never received gentle and specific upper cervical care, you’re in store for a nice surprise! Imagine functioning at 100% with an unhindered nerve system…functioning the way your body is intended to function. Quite simply, optimum health may only manifest when your body is functioning without any nerve interference. All things being equal, someone with nerve interference cannot be as healthy as someone without nerve interference.

If you have any questions at all, please don’t hesitate to contact me personally. I look forward to partnering with you on your quest for a healthier life.
