PERSONAL TESTIMONY

Dr. James F. Ransom:

  • I met Dr. Ransom while attending chiropractic school in the suburbs of Chicago, Illinois. Because of his wealth of Chiropractic knowledge, he helped me make a quick and miraculous recovery in my own personal injury.
  • I later learned that after successfully practicing as a Chiropractic Physician in Colorado for over 40 years he returned to our Chiropractic school because in his words “I want to give something back to the profession for giving me a good life.”
  • I met him when he was 72 years young and could “write a book” about the few months I was fortunate to spend with him. He was a true humanitarian, had impeccable character, was a great adjuster and a brilliant doctor. His empathy and focus as a doctor were unmatched. He had more influence on my career than any other doctor or teacher. His uncanny ability to resolve disc conditions, prior to modern research and imaging, has spurred me on to pursue Post-Graduate study and focus my practice on Nonsurgical Disc Decompression.
  • I stand on his shoulders. We all need mentors, for some it’s sport stars, for me it’s Dr. James F. Ransom. {1914-2001}
