Dr. James Crawford joined the team in August 2020.
He was drawn to Loehr Health Center by the atmosphere of the clinic, style of practice, and patient care. As a chiropractor, Dr. Crawford utilizes chiropractic adjustments and therapies like decompression, cold laser, ultrasound, and more to help get his patients reach their health goals–whether that is to reduce their pain or enjoy the Ozarks’ many outdoor activities like hiking or fishing. “I enjoy getting to see the progression in my patients and changes that I help make in their daily lives,” shared Dr. Crawford. In his spare time, Dr. Crawford can be found at the gym, enjoying the outdoors, or watching football.

Why did you become a chiropractor?
Chiropractic has helped me live my best life from the start, and I wanted to share that with others.
Who was the biggest influence on your career?
I kind of had two people who influenced me big time in my career so far. The first being Dr. K who helped me figure out that chiropractic was the route I wanted to take in my professional career and then Dr. Chalk who helped me find a school and helped me with my technique and confidence.
Where can we find you when you’re not working?
That depends on the day, sometimes it’s the gym, sometimes it’s enjoying the outdoors, and on weekends in the fall it’s usually watching football.
If you could posses one super-hero power, what would it be?
My one super-hero power would be speed.
What is your favorite food?
My favorite food is sushi.
If you weren’t a doctor, what job would you be doing?
I would probably be trying to make it as a personal trainer.
What’s the one problem you’re best at solving for your patients?
I would say that I can help find the root of the problem or get them to the person who can.
