Meet The Doctors

Dr. Jason Sims, D.C. is a Chiropractor at Desert Ridge

Athletes Take The Hits: “Growing up involved in athletics in high school and college, I was often getting injured or in pain. I received an athletic scholarship to play college basketball but before my senior year I had a serious injury. I was in a lot of pain! I saw the team doctors for help and was facing surgery, but that did not sit well with me. I knew there had to be a better alternative.”

Finally, it was a chiropractor that was able to relieve Dr. Sims’ pain: “Chiropractic care was the only thing that helped me get through my senior basketball season and help me perform at an optimal level in my professional basketball career. I was truly inspired. I think this is why I’m so compassionate towards my patients - because I’ve been there, I’ve literally felt their pain.”

Chiropractic, An Amazing Discovery: Seeing his own improvement and the difference it made in his life, Dr. Sims began doing research into the chiropractic field and was amazed to discover how many people chiropractic care has and can help. “This spark of interest continued to grow and chiropractic care soon became a career which I continue to love more and more each year!”

“After undergrad at University of Northern Iowa and my professional basketball career, I studied and received my chiropractic degree from Northwestern Health Sciences University. My education was a great foundation, and on that I’ve built my experience, passion and dedication.”

Hitting the Bullseye of Health: “My aim is to help families stop tricking their bodies into feeling better by covering up their symptoms and get to the root cause with chiropractic corrective and restorative care. Through better understanding their heath, patients can live their lives on their terms, the way they see fit instead of dictated by their symptoms. My goals are to provide a first-class patient experience and help my patients not only recover from their current ailments but after-which, maximize their body’s full potential so symptoms do not return through wellness care.”

Helping People, Energizing Lives: “What I love best about being your Desert Ridge Community chiropractor is the opportunity to help the families and individuals here reach their goals and improve their quality of life. Nothing is more intrinsically rewarding than that!”

Dr. Sims’ wife Ruth also serves in the health field as a Fitness Coach. Together they have a beautiful daughter named Solé in high school. The Sims’ enjoy spending time together watching movies, traveling and the pursuit of living life to the fullest.
