Jim Cox, DC


After touring DAP and learning that chiropractic assistance was not available, Jim began offering his services to the organization in 2016, and he has a private practice as well. He takes the time to get to know his patients and each treatment plan is specific to an individual’s needs and not just therapy in a bottle.

Jim’s unique approach includes the belief that it is important to promote physical and mental self-improvement by helping patients set goals they agree are within their capacity. It makes sense then that while he practices traditional, hands-on manipulation as the core of his chiropractic approach, Jim’s philosophy in treating patients of all ages is to use what works best for the individual. That means he also employs a number of other treatment techniques, such as drop table, activator, and soft tissue manipulation.

After receiving a Bachelor of Arts degree in Communication Studies at California State University, San Bernardino, Jim became a Certified Massage Therapist in 2001 and spent the next three years in that capacity in a chiropractic office before deciding to get his doctorate in chiropractic degree. After receiving his D.C. from Southern California University of Health Sciences, he spent six years in private practice in Laguna Beach before returning to his alma mater to become a clinician, quality assurance chair, and lecturer.

A strong believer in service, Jim has participated in various committees and organizations, including rotary, the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation, and as captain of the Chiropractic/Acupuncture Sports Medicine team at the annual AIDS LifeCycleTM event.
