Dr. Jay’s calling into health and fitness started as a child with his battle with severe, debilitating allergies and migraine headaches. Even at a young age, Dr. Jay did not accept this as normal nor did he believe that medication was the answer. It was not until Dr. Jay found the true principles of chiropractic that he found resolution from his suffering. As a result of this battle, Dr. Jay has become an expert on the nervous system, the spine, and spinal correction.

Dr. Jay has dedicated his life to revolutionizing our current healthcare crisis and he spends much of his time speaking to anyone that will listen. Dr. Jay is an accomplished athlete and a peak physical fitness advocate.
