James Chavis - DC
Dr. James Chavis was born in Miami, Florida. After much relocation, his family finally settled in Fairbanks, AK where he spent the majority of his life. He attended the University of Alaska in Fairbanks during his undergraduate studies where he was enrolled in full time resident instruction in pre-chiropractic studies including but not limited to; inorganic and organic chemistry, biology, physiology, kinesiology, psychology, humanities and social sciences. Dr. Chavis graduated from the University Of Western States in Portland, OR in 2012 with a Bachelor’s Degree in Human Biology and a Doctorate in Chiropractic Medicine.
After completing graduate school Dr. Chavis moved back to Alaska, this time – to Juneau. Having never been to Juneau before, he was amazed by the beauty of this place. Him and his wife fell in love with the town, the mountains, Gastineau channel and the wonderful people of Juneau, and consider themselves lucky to be able to do what they love nowhere else, but here in Alaska. A few months after they moved to Juneau, they were blessed with their first baby boy.
Dr. Chavis is committed to providing care to patients of all ages. He is truly passionate about helping people achieve wellness in their lives. He strongly believes that wellness is an active process of becoming aware of and making choices toward a healthy and fulfilling life. In his practice, he has noticed that patients that respond to Chiropractic care the best are the patients who are committed to taking control of their health.
Dr. Chavis takes time to learn about patients’ lifestyles, habits and history to provide them with a customized treatment plan that would help them manage the pain, and later on, maintain a pain-free life. He has achieved great results using spinal adjustments, extremity adjustments, Myofascial release techniques, spinal decompression, adhesion breaking, self-care exercises and more; in helping patients with headaches, neck pain, back pain, stiffness, numbness, work-related injuries, car accidents and more.
When he’s not busy treating patients, Dr. Chavis can be found working out at the gym, hiking or playing outside with his newborn son Jack.
