Meet Dr. James Doty

Chiropractor Independence, Dr. James DotyDr. Doty knew from an early age that he was being called to a career in health care. It was only after a personal encounter with the power of chiropractic care that his destiny became clear—he was meant to be a chiropractor. Since then, Dr. Doty has helped countless men, women, and children achieve better health.

Back & Neck Pain Center continues to reflect Dr. Doty’s passion for chiropractic care today.

Getting His Life Back

While Dr. Doty originally enrolled in college to become a physical therapist, he quickly realized physical therapy was not for him and began exploring other options. After a workout injury left him with severe low back, pelvic, and hamstring pain, he searched high and low for relief. Unfortunately for Dr. Doty, traditional medicine did not offer him the answers he desperately sought, and he continued to live in discomfort.

Shortly thereafter, Dr. Doty was introduced to a Cleveland Chiropractic College student who was finally able to uncover the source of his pain. The student found that Dr. Doty had a short leg and mild scoliosis that could be easily addressed by adjusting his lumbar spine, stretching his leg muscles, and implementing orthotic support. Chiropractic care had given Dr. Doty his life back.

Obtaining a Chiropractic Education

Cleveland Chiropractic College Graduate Dr. Doty began his education at Rockhurst University. There, he earned his bachelor’s degree in psychology and his master’s degree in business administration. Dr. Doty is forever grateful for his undergraduate studies, as he feels that they provided him with the basis for his future education in chiropractic care.

In addition to his extensive education, Dr. Doty is a member of the Missouri Chiropractic Physicians Association and the American Chiropractic Association (ACA) and has completed over 200 hours of course work on acupuncture.
