Dr. James Antun
Dr. James offers a unique blend of chiropractic and physical therapy techniques aimed at providing a seamless transition from the relief phase of care involving more passive therapies that alleviate pain to the appropriate rehabilitative exercises later stages of care to ensure complete resolution of your condition. His goal is to share knowledge that will empower you to understand that you don’t have to accept a diminished quality of life due to current or prior injuries.
Dr. James primarily utilizes traditional manual adjustment techniques, but is also certified in the Activator Method, which provides safe and precise low force corrections to joints when manual adjustments may not be appropriate. This technique is best suited for individuals who may have had a surgical procedure in the area, are generally uncomfortable with the “pop” or “click” associated with manual adjustments, or have conditions such as osteoporosis that warrant the doctor to be more judicious about how movement is applied to the body.
He is also trained in non-surgical spinal decompression via the Cox Flexion-distraction technique, functional taping for musculoskeletal injuries, instrument-assisted soft tissue mobilization, and extensively trained in therapeutic exercises for injury rehabilitation. Dr. James is an OCB pro bodybuilder, recreational runner, and holds a CrossFit Level 1 coaching certificate. He is passionate about sharing his love for movement with others, and helping the community achieve optimal health through a holistic approach.
