James graduated from the University of Georgia in 2006 with a degree in Exercise Science. He received his Doctorate in Physical Therapy from Georgia State University in 2010. He then went on to an orthopedic residency at Mercer University and became a board-certified Orthopedic Clinical Specialist in 2012. He has pursued additional training in pain science, tendon injuries, exercise prescription and post-surgical rehabilitation. He has also received extensive training in manual therapy techniques related to spinal manipulation and soft tissue work. He takes a holistic approach with his patients and emphasizes the importance that strength and mobility play in everyday life. He enjoys the variety of issues that need to be addressed in the clinic. From keeping elderly patients independent and mobile as long as possible, to helping athletes return to the field as quickly as possible. He believes that exercise is a hugely undervalued aspect of living a long and fulfilling life.
Outside of the clinic James enjoys being active and spending time with his wife Joannah. Hobbies include hiking, camping, running, board games, and swinging around some kettlebells.
