About Jim Yates, Doctor of Chiropractic
I lead the team of Chiropractors and Acupuncturists that staff our Queen Street, Parnell and Takapuna Offices. We have over 150 years of clinical experience.
I was first introduced to chiropractic after injuring myself in the gym in the mid-1980s. I already had a previous Bachelor of Science degree so it wasn’t long before I was enrolled in the chiropractic program at Life Chiropractic College West in San Francisco. Four years later I had received my Doctor of Chiropractic degree.
Before immigrating to New Zealand in 2004, I practiced in Northern California for many years; covering the full gamut of healthcare from wellness to headaches, back aches, nonsurgical management of disc herniations, whiplash/auto accidents and various work-related injuries.
Having fallen in love with New Zealand, I am now a citizen living in Parnell, Auckland. For three years, I was full time faculty New Zealand College of Chiropractic and I still continue there on a part time basis.
Since I held the National Board of Chiropractic Examiners (NBCE) qualification in Physiotherapy in the USA, I use a combination of soft tissue work, massage, heat, ice stretching, gentle specific chiropractic spinal adjustments, exercise programs, Spinal Decompression Therapy both Flexion Distraction and Inversion Therapy. We also refer as necessary to other health care providers to get the best results possible given your personal situation.
We use a number of highly-effective adjusting approaches to help improve spinal biomechanics and reduce nervous system interference. The approach we use is based on our judgment and years of experience.
The primary adjusting techniques we use include:
After identifying which spinal bones have lost their normal motion or position, a specific manual thrust is administered to free up “stuck” joints.
Named for its developer, we conduct a thorough evaluation using full spine X-rays and a heat-sensing instrument for accurate adjustments.
Thompson Terminal Point technique is a system of analysis and a special table that reduces the amount of energy needed to adjust your spine.
Flexion Distraction Spinal Decompression Therapy
New Zealand's only Axial Trac Flexion Distraction tables that are specifically designed for treatment of lumbar disc herniations and other spinal problems.
DFM Gravty Inversion Therapy
New Zealand's olny Commercial Gravity Inverion Therapy table that are also specifically designed for treatment of lumbar disc herniations and other spinal problems.
This is a system of spinal evaluation combined with a handheld adjusting instrument that delivers a consistent, low-force thrust.
If you’ve been to a chiropractor before and prefer to be adjusted in a particular way, let know. We want you to relax, enjoy and fully benefit from your chiropractic care.
