Instructor: James Cima
r. Cima's journey to becoming a chiropractor started when he was young. At age 13 or 14, he suffered a back injury. It got worse until he was in constant pain that would go away sometimes, but always returned with a vengeance.
After he had graduated from Cornell University with a Bachelor of Science, there were days when he couldn't get off the floor. Someone suggested to Dr. Cima that he visit a chiropractor. His back improved quickly. Amazed at the results and combined with his desire to be in the health field, he decided to enroll at New York Chiropractic College, graduating with honors and a Doctor of Chiropractic degree.
In his last year of school, he came across a quote from Thomas Edison about the doctor of the future: "The doctor of the future will give no medication but will interest his patients in diet, care of the human frame, and the cause and prevention of disease."
Although the definition was near perfect, there was no how-to manual that explained how the doctor was going to treat his patients. From that day forward, he was hooked, and wanted to become the doctor of the future. Dr. Cima devoted his life to health and wellness, and forty-four years later has created a health and wellness program that lives up to Mr. Edison's vision of the doctor of the future.
