Bear River Chiropractic | Meet Our Doctor

Dr. Jim McCririe, D.C., C.C.S.P.

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. He graduated from Palmer Chiropractic College in 1986. He then went on to study sports injuries and after two additional years he received his certification as a Sports Injury Physician. Other areas of study include the treatment and management of the "whiplash" injury, x-ray analysis, physiotherapy, nutrition and supplementation...

Dr. Jim established his practice in Los Gatos, California and treated 1000's of patients over 17 years. He worked closely with orthopedic surgeons in the recovery and rehabilitation of joint injuries. Dr. Jim has had the privilege of working with professional, Olympic and amateur athletes.

The thought of moving and starting over was a little overwhelming, but exhilarating at the same time. In 2002, decisions were made quickly and before Dr. Jim and his family could digest what happened they were living in Lake of the Pines. The BEST decision ever! It was monumental because the transition set the stage for the most advanced technology to penetrate the chiropractic profession and find its way to Bear River Chiropractic. Come meet Dr. Jim and experience the Ultralign approach to healthful living.
