This passion fuels his desire to continue learning about and researching new and advanced therapies and techniques to help his patients heal more quickly and completely.
Dr. James provides his patients with treatments that exceed the scope of traditional care by using a functional neurology approach. This specialized form of care focuses on the health and performance of the brain and how it interacts with the nervous system and the muscular system. As part of his evaluations, Dr. James employs a variety of tests that measure any nervous system abnormalities that could be causing faulty sensations or motor functions, affecting thought processes, or causing abnormal posture or muscle pain. The brain controls every bodily function, so the goal of treatment is to clear any broken communication lines between your brain and body to discourage disease and pain while promoting better healing.
Dr. James is committed to a holistic and natural approach to healing chronic and acute pain and inflammation. The body is a self-healing organism that can perform exceptional repairs and regenerate itself when it has the optimal environment to do so. Dr. James aims to provide that environment to patients of Resilient Spine and Sports Health and support them on their healing journey.
