Hello friends!  

We know you are concerned about the Coronavirus. We want to assure you that we are taking aggressive steps to reduce the risk of transmission of the virus in our clinic by doing extra sanitizing of all surfaces, treatment rooms, the bathroom, and the waiting areas.

To protect our patients, we will be limiting the number of patients inside the clinic. If the door is locked, we are with a patient and will be with you as soon as that patient has left the clinic. Please remain in your car until you are called for your treatment.

For the safety of all of us, we ask that if you are ill or may have been exposed to a person with either proven or suspected influenza or COVID-19 virus, please do not visit our clinic without calling first. Patients with a fever will be turned away.

Be safe and stay healthy, Friends.

Meet Dr. Jim McCririe

Doctor of Chiropractic

Dr. James McCririe entered the United States Navy out of High School. He spent a good deal of time on a nuclear powered fast attack submarine. While in the Navy he earned a degree in electronics. After serving four years in the Navy and with the GI bill he went off to college. While playing his favorite sport, baseball, he suffered a nerve injury after sliding head first into third base. The result was facial paralysis and the medical treatment was a "wait and see" approach. Little did Dr. Jim know that this incident would shape his future. Chiropractic was the only treatment that impacted his condition and that experience was what inspired him to pursue Chiropractic.

What Our Patients Say

Mr. McCririe is so great at what he does. I initially went in for a back problem and walked out of the clinic with a full plan for my back and for a shoulder issue. He is very knowledgable and very confident in his work. Everyone at this clinic is so friendly and very accommodating. I highly recommend Bear River Chiropractic. Thank you!

Finally! A chiropractor that does not bend you into a pretzel, and actually asks, "does that feel better?" State of the art technology and highly educated in his field, his soul purpose is to create a better quality of life for his patients.

Dr Jim really has a lot of great knowledge to share! His tools really helped my sciatica a lot - I'm healing quickly due my weekly visits! I have at least 5 other friends that visit him and ALL are experiencing similar positive healing results.
