About Dr. James Bogash

Mesa Chiropractor low back neck shoulder knee painSince acquiring a passion for how the body works in chiropractic school, I have continued to indulge this desire by reading some 120 peer reviewed medical journals per month. I’m always learning more about how to help people avoid chronic diseases like diabetes, heart disease, dementia, osteoporosis, obesity and cancer, and pass along this information in my blog. There are currently almost 3,500 posts cataloged on almost every health topic imaginable!

For some reason, the information that we understand about avoid and managing chronic diseases remains a big secret. Drugs dominate and lifestyle is pushed to the side. Time after time I have new patients come into my office that have not been given the information they need to get or stay healthy.

This blog has always served as therapy for me, allowing me to share with the world this hidden information. Hence the name “Rantings…”

The stories I hear back from readers of the blog who have made changes to their lifestyles is the most rewarding experience that I know of. If you find that these blog entries have helped give you insight into your health challenges, I would encourage you to share them with me.

I typically post 5-6 days per week. These posts go out live on Google+,  LinkedIn, Facebook and Twitter immediately. To make sure that you don’t miss my newest posts, you can subscribe via RSS or email.

Dr. Bogash was raised in the frigid suburbs of Chicago and graduated with his bachelor’s degree in Biology from the University of Illinois at Chicago. After working for 3 years, he went back to school and ultimately graduated from National University of Health Sciences with a Doctor of Chiropractic degree in 1997, moving out to Arizona in the spring of 1998.

He opened Lifecare Chiropractic in March of 1998, and has been actively involved in educating the community since. He has or currently serves on the board of directors for the Kiwanis Club of Tempe, Tempe YMCA and the Arizona Association of Chiropractic.

Dr. Bogash stays current with new research, reading in excess of 120 peer reviewed medical journals per month. He uses his knowledge of physiology combined with new research to educate patients of the best methods to avoid or manage chronic disease, and his 10 week lifestyle management class is one of the most comprehensive programs available to teach patients everything they need to know to make positive lifestyle changes. Because of this passion for knowledge, helping patients and clarifying tough health issues he has become a sought after lecturer.

Of particular interest is the neurophysiology and it’s impact on conditions like epilepsy, Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s and Lou Gehrig’s disease (ALS). Many researchers believe we have found what causes these conditions and the means to help prevent them in future generations is waiting to be used.

As a chiropractic physician, Dr. Bogash also stays current on the latest treatments in physical medicine. He is one of a handful of physicians in Arizona that is certified in Graston Technique, arguably one of the most effective soft tissue treatments for difficult cases and chronic injuries involving scar tissue formation.
