Meet Dr. Jim Hankinson

Dr. Jim Hankinson is a chiropractor in Kirkwood; he first decided he wanted to help others after his own Chiropractor drastically changed his life by showing him a new way of healthy living. He started seeing a Chiropractor when he was 14 after suffering from neck pain. It wasn’t until his early twenties that Jim really benefited from his care. Throughout his life, he has received chiropractic care from various doctors which have allowed him to maintain and continue living his active lifestyle.

 

Dr. Jim has competed in over 30 triathlons and 10 – ½ marathons. He would not have been able to do this having low back surgery as surgeons had stated he needed prior to receiving chiropractic care. He has been married to his wife for 20 years and has two sons. When his oldest son was a baby, he had recurring ear infections. After getting adjusted a few times he has not had an ear infection since.

 

Dr. Hankinson graduated from Logan College of Chiropractic in St. Louis in 2000. He moved to his chiropractor office in Kirkwood in November 2014. He takes a different approach to patient care. He gets to know his patients on a first name basis by spending time, listening, and catering to their needs. His goal is to fix or prevent the problem, not put a band-aid on it. Throughout his personal experience, Dr. Jim has developed a passion for educating others about Chiropractic care in Kirkwood.
