Meet Dr. James Beno D.C

“After avoiding back surgery by the use of chiropractic care in 1965, I have dedicated my career in chiropractic to helping people overcome pain, disability, and suffering without the use of drugs and surgery.”
I received MY pre-med degree in 1966 and served as a US naval medical corpsman on board the USS Chicago during the Viet Nam conflict. In 1969 I married my best friend Linda. In 1973 I graduated from the National College of Chiropractic in Lombard Illinois with a Bachelor of Science in Human Biology and Doctor of Chiropractic degrees completing over 4,400 hours of professional instruction.
Upon graduation, Linda and I decided to open a practice in Petoskey in 1973. I specialize in Applied Kinesiology with over 400 hours of postgraduate study in this field. Applied Kinesiology (AK) is a form of diagnosis using muscle testing as a primary feedback mechanism to examine how a person’s body is functioning.

Yours In Good Health,
