Meet Dr. James Peterson

Dr. James

Dr. James has not always known that chiropractic was his true calling, but developed a passion for healthcare and nutrition starting early in his teens. He did however know his passion and purpose was to serve and help others to live up to their God-Given potential. After spending time with his wife when she worked a chiropractic office, his eyes were opened to the chiropractic profession. Dr. James attended Palmer College of Chiropractic in Davenport Iowa.

Emphasizing Pediatric and Prenatal Care

During his first few years of gaining his chiropractic education, his wife Jessica became pregnant with their first 2 daughters. This is where his passion for pediatric and prenatal care really developed! Unfortunately, being early in his chiropractic training he didn’t know what he knows now and their second daughter experienced severe colic. Through that experience he gained a new perspective and knew he didn’t want another family to experience those struggles. Which, pushed him to learn the depths of pediatric and prenatal care!

Not only did Dr. James receive his chiropractic education from Palmer College of Chiropractic, he continues to study and train to provide the most exceptional care to our families. He is a PX Certified Pro Doc that received his Certificate of Proficiency in Pediatrics + Family Chiropractic from the Life University Postgraduate Department. He is also Webster Certified and has taken many courses through the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association. Dr. James also mentors under Dr. Tony Ebel, Dr. Dan Sullivan, and Dr. Josh Axe of Ancient Nutrition.
