Dr. Chris Jones

chrisoptimalhealthchiropractic.jpgDr. Jones is excited to return to Lexington and start his practice in a town he once attended undergraduate college.  In 2003, while attending UK and really struggling with which direction life was calling him, he learned about chiropractic and immediately knew that was it.  He returned home to Cape Girardeau, MO to finish undergraduate school even passing on an offer to play football, because he was excited and wanted to focus on school. He then attended Logan College of Chiropractic in St. Louis, Mo where he concurrently obtained his bachelor’s in Human Biology, and finally his Doctorate of Chiropractic in September of 2010.  Dr. Jones practiced his first three years in Louisville and attended multiple seminars to stay up to date on the latest research and technology in the profession. He has continuing education in non-surgical spinal decompression, functional blood analysis and functional chiropractic neurology.  His certifications include:

Kennedy Decompression Technique
Functional Blood Analysis
Mastering the Thyroid
Neuro Cranial Integration
American Functional Neurology Institute
