Chiropractic Care Helps!

Bountiful Chiropractor

Dr. James Knight

I wish I had known then what I know now and I may have been able to avoid many years of debilitating migraine headaches.

My original training was as a Nuclear Engineering Instructor for the U. S. Navy. While there I started having a significant problem with migraine headaches. The Navy sent me to multiple hospitals and put me on a number of medications, which, as it turned out, could not be used while working at a Nuclear facility. So I was given a Medical discharge with a 50% disability for Migraines. During the course of coming to and from Naval Medical Hospitals, I met Dr. Mark Woodland, a Chiropractic Physician from Idaho Falls, Idaho who encouraged me to come see him professionally. Dr. Woodland did more for my migraine headache problem one night in his home than multiple Naval Hospitals and all their medications were able to do. As a result I investigated Chiropractic and ended up attending Palmer College of Chiropractic in Davenport, Iowa, the oldest and most prestigious Chiropractic College in the world. I graduated Magna Cum Laude from Palmer College in 1979 and have been in private practice for the past 32 years.

Having already been in an undergraduate pre-med program, I was amazed at the depth and quality of instruction! I particularly enjoyed my relationship with Dr. Virgil V. Strang, both as an instructor and mentor. I was one of the lucky few that got to work with him in his private clinic on a weekly basis for over 3 years. I still use many of the things he taught me in my office today. One of his favorite sayings was “We are not merely human beings, we are humans being.”

Chiropractic Affiliations

I received advanced certifications in Acupuncture and Homeopathic Biopuncture. I have been involved in Chiropractic Politics since I served as the President of the Palmer Veterans Association, lobbying in Washington on behalf of Chiropractic student loans and Veterans issues. I have served in various capacities of Association Leadership both in Idaho and Utah. I was voted Chiropractor of the Year in Idaho in 1983, and in Utah both in 1988 and 1996. I have served on the Utah State Standard of Care Committee for six (6) years and am currently serving a second four (4) year appointment on the Utah State Chiropractic Physician Licensing Board.

I have written Insurance Manuals for the Utah Chiropractic Physicians Association since 1990 and taught Insurance Coding, HIPPA, etc. since 1990. In addition I am chairman of the legal and legislative committee for the Utah Chiropractic Physicians Association and have served as adjunct faculty with Logan, National and Los Angeles Chiropractic Colleges. During the last 8 years, I have served with the National Board of Chiropractic Examiners in national test development and administration.

Chiropractors Need Chiropractic Care!

I personally receive Chiropractic care several times a month, follow a regimen of clinical nutrition, and try to never miss my weekly massage. Routine exercise is accomplished with my skiing, mountain biking, and lots of yard work.

I have been married to my sweetheart Linda for 39 years. I am the proud father of 8 children and currently 8 grandchildren. When I am not busy in my Chiropractic Practice, I enjoy church service, skiing, and mountain biking.
