Dr. Joel, a Savannah, TN native, received his degree from Life Chiropractic College in Atlanta, Georgia in 1990. Durham Chiropractic was established November 2000, soon after Dr. Joel’s return to west Tennessee from Tuscaloosa, Alabama.
His love of sports, fitness, and a healthy lifestyle motivated him to pursue a second degree, this time with the American Chiropractic Board of Sports Physicians, earning him the title Certified Chiropractic Sports Physician in 2002. Dr. Joel serves on the Board of Directors for the Tennessee Chiropractic Association and is a proud alumnus of Leadership Jackson. In 2009, Durham Chiropractic was awarded the coveted Chamber of Commerce Pinnacle Award for small business excellence, and earlier in 2014, Dr. Joel won a Civic Pride Award for his efforts to enrich the beauty of Jackson.
As owner of Durham Chiropractic, Dr. Joel enjoys working with a wide variety of patients ranging from entire families and pregnant women to athletes and pageant winners. While taking pride in his comprehensive knowledge and experience in the treatment of musculoskeletal conditions, he also has an excellent network of specialists to whom patients are referred when indicated.
In April 2010, Durham Chiropractic and Wellness proudly moved into a new state-of-the-art building. The mainstay of practice growth continues to come from personal and professional referrals.
Dr. Joel lives in Jackson with his wife, Laurie, who is employed by First Bank, and his precious daughter Emma, who attends Trinity Christian School. They enjoy sports, horses, visits to the zoo and the beach. You can often find them together exploring the outdoors. As he recommends a well-rounded lifestyle to his patients, Dr. Joel enjoys spending his time away from the office with his family, friends, and the great outdoors.
