Chiropractor James Shannon, DC

Chiropractor Johnson City TN Dr. James ShannonDr. James Shannon, a native of Duncansville, Pennsylvania, has felt that it has always been his destiny to become a chiropractor. Growing up, Dr. Shannon observed first-hand the power of chiropractic through his father, who sustained a lower back injury during a motorcycle crash in 1984. After years of searching for an end to his pain, Dr. Shannon's father decided to visit a local chiropractor. Being able to observe his father slowly regain his life back, while also getting to experience chiropractic care himself, Dr. Shannon decided at the age of 11 he wanted to become a chiropractor.

Before attending chiropractic school, Dr. Shannon attended Arizona State University where he graduated with a Bachelor's of Science in Biochemistry. Upon graduating, Dr. Shannon attended Life Chiropractic College West in Hayward, California where he graduated with his Doctorates in Chiropractic. Before starting with Jones Chiropractic Clinic, Dr. Shannon has spent the past 4 years treating patients in Middle Tennessee as an associate chiropractor, with the goal of helping and serving as many people in the community as possible with principled chiropractic care. Education is a big part of Dr. Shannon's focus when it comes to shifting people's paradigms of health. Dr. Shannon is interested in research and the continued growth and development of a new form of health care that focuses on providing patients with care free of drugs, surgery, or medical interventions. In his free time, Dr. Shannon is a family man who enjoys spending time with his wife Victoria and daughters Audrey and Arianna.
