Video Testimonial – Dr. James Stoxen DC – National College of Chiropractic Grad 1986


This is a video testimonial I am proud to have done about National University Health Sciences, formerly National College of Chiropractic.


My father Dr Paul Stoxen DC graduated there in 1949 and I graduated there in 1986. They really did a great job in preparing me for my career as a chiropractor. I highly recommend NCC!

Meet Dr. James Stoxen DC, who graduated from National in 1986:

I choose National because it offered the chiropractic component and more importantly for me, I wanted to lecture and be involved in the medical component. I liked the more medical oriented method rather than the straight method because I felt that I could communicate better with the medical profession on their level and you know what? It was a good idea.

Why did James Stoxen choose a career in chiropractic medicine?

My mother sat me down one day when I was 17 years old. She had a piece of paper in her hand and I said, “Oh No, here we go”. She said, “Now what we are going to do is write out all the things you love to do and what you see yourself doing in the future.

I wrote things down such as:

  1. I like to go to rock concerts
  2. I like to work on Athletes
  3. I like sports
  4. I like training
  5. I like to go to sporting events
  6. I like to travel around the world
  7. I want to meet interesting people and be around successful people
  8. I like to help others

She took the pencil and circled all of those things and said, “If you could find a career that will allow you to do all of those things then you will never work a day in your life and that is exactly how I feel.

I have the greatest job ever!!!!!!!

Today, Dr. Stoxen has treated national and world champion athletes and has treated celebrities at concerts and tours around the world. read more

I have been back stage as an entertainer doctor working 12-15 hours a day with some of the icons that I idolized as a kid. As well as the new and up and coming recording artist that you hear on the radio. Half of them I have worked for.

Dr. Stoxen has lectured at medical conferences around the world about his approach to patient care. read more

I found that the body is a natural spring that recycles energy with each impact so that means we can run long distances and we can go all day without getting tired. The spring protects us from these impacts and the landings in sports as well as in running and walking.

I found that was the secret. I incorporated the physics and engineering. I put this together with treatment.

This whole Human Spring Approach came because of my knowledge.

The College professors at ‘National University’, taught me how to research, go to the library for research study. They taught me to investigate what research studies were making sense and what not making sense.

Based on what I learned at ‘National University’, I was able to go through thousands of research papers and prepare excellent presentations using the studies and findings that were here already.

I used the Human Spring Approach to treat a very famous celebrity, Anthony Field, from the “Wiggles’.

In 15 hours over the course of a weekend I was able to move the restriction on his Human Spring. We were able to reverse 25 years of chronic pain that he could not find the answers to help him.

Dr. James Stoxen DC

He decided to write a book about it, ‘How I Got My Wiggle Back’ by Anthony Field and Greg Truman. In this book he tells the whole story how he formed the Wiggles and how he suffered for those 25 years barely getting through the tours. He also shares how he was in agony and depression. The inflammation from his dietary problems and musculoskeletal problems made the depression worse. He was on medication for many years. Dr. Richard Gringeri and I helped him get off the medication and get on to a better, healthy life.

What’s Dr. Stoxen’s advice to those considering a career in chiropractic medicine?

You really need to find your dream job! So that every day you go to work, it’s not work.

Get our your piece of paper and make out that list then circle it. See if chiropractic fits and if it does then choose it.
