Meet Dr. James Bodkin

Chiropractor Dalton, Dr. James BodkinDr. Bodkin joined Pray Chiropractic’s Dalton office full time in July 2019. As a high school football player, Dr. Bodkin injured his shoulder while playing. He went to see multiple doctors and had physical therapy, but he didn’t get the results he was looking for. Dr. Bodkin’s father was under chiropractic care at the time and got incredible results as far as pain relief and improved range of motion.

“I was 16 or 17 then, and knew that I wanted to do something in the medical field.” Dr. Bodkin thought it was awesome to heal people with just your hands.

A Chiropractic Education

Dr. Bodkin earned his Doctor of Chiropractic from Sherman College of Chiropractic. While in school, he and fellow students practiced on each other and then started seeing patients from the community. Dr. Bodkin found it highly fulfilling to see patients feel better and move better.

Helping to Improve Patients’ Lives

Genuine and caring, Dr. Bodkin always seeks to get his patients the results they want. In practice since 2009, he has helped many patients get better and improve the quality of their life. He sees patients across the spectrum, from children to athletes.

“When they get under care and say, ‘my life is completely different,’ this hits home and makes me happy to be able to help someone.”


Outside the Practice

When he’s not working, Dr. Bodkin enjoys spending as much time with family as he can. He and his wife Meredith have two children: son Landon and daughter Audrey. Dr. Bodkin likes leading his family in healthy living. He particularly enjoys soccer, going on hikes, eating healthily and exercising. His other passion is music. He plays the guitar and drums.
