INSTRUCTOR BIOGRAPHIES

I was born and raised in Eden, North Carolina. I grew up on a 100-acre “hobby” farm with my 4 siblings. I say hobby farm because it was run by my grandfather “Papa” who retired onto the property with my grandma “Nana” once he left the ministry as a southern baptist pastor. My father is an M.D. and has been practicing family medicine for the past 40 years. My mother, God love her, stayed home and homeschooled all 5 of us kids K-12.

I have many fond memories of playing outside on the farm growing up and learning how to garden and do small repairs from Papa. I was also an avid participant in YMCA sports growing up, playing every sport they offered. My mom still likes to tell the story that instead of a pacifier as an infant I would want to have a ball in my hand to calm down.

After graduating high school I attended the University of North Carolina at Greensboro and received my bachelor’s in Kinesiology. I then moved to St. Louis in the fall of 2018 attended Logan University and received my Doctor of Chiropractic degree in December of 2021. I tell everyone that coming to Logan was the best decision I ever made because I met my lovely wife while in school. Hannah is from Waterloo, Illinois so I have learned a lot about St. Louis from her and her family.

I was lucky enough to make the right decision in baseball fandom from a young age choosing the Cardinals as my team. After moving to St. Louis Hannah quickly converted me to be a Blues fan. We actually started dating during the Blues Stanley cup run, we watched game four together and they won so I told her we had to watch the rest together so they would win, and they did! We had a lovely wedding last May and we are expecting our first child in March of 2022 we are very excited for our little family to grow!

While attending Logan I was blessed to be the lead intern of the pediatric rotation at Logan for my final 9 months of school. I have a passion for providing chiropractic care to all members of the family and would love to talk about the benefits chiropractic care can provide for infants and pediatric patients with anyone who would like to know! I also enjoy working with adults, and I understand from personal experience the need for some lower force adjustments and treatments.

I like practicing with the Sacro-Occipital Technic® which is a system of analysis that includes cranial work and it can really help people in my experience and allow me to know exactly where the body would like to be adjusted.

I, Dr. James M. Weber was born and raised in Dittmer, MO on my families dairy farm. I had never been to a chiropractic office before starting chiropractic school. I knew I wanted to help people since I was young, after starting my first trimester of chiropractic school I knew I was in the right place because I could help people with my bare hands and personal knowledge.

While in my third trimester at Logan College of Chiropractic I began my intense study of Sacro Occipital Technic (SOT). SOT, unlike most chiropractic techniques is a whole body analysis which incorporates chiropractic, while blending osteopathy, craniopathy, and organ/soft tissue reflex manipulation along with it. In 2010, I received my Sacro Occipital Technic basic certification from Sacro Occipital Research Society International.

Through additional studies outside basic chiropractic curriculum I received my Internal Health Specialist certification as well as a Cranial and Pediatric certification. Throughout school I attended seminars advancing my knowledge and understanding in Functional Blood Chemistry, Brain and Neurotransmitter, & Functional Endocrinology.

I especially enjoy working with chronic cases that other doctors have said the words, “You will have to live with this…” I wish I could say I specialize in one particular area/region of the body but I cannot because all parts are connected and work together. If you, the reader are seeing a specialist for some health related issue than there is at least a 50% chance that they are missing a critical component to your health.

Dr. Unger is a member of Sacro Occipital Research Society International, Inc. (SORSI), a professional association whose members utilize Sacro Occipital Technic™ (SOT®) in their practices. A past-president and chairman of SORSI, Dr. Unger currently serves on the SORSI research committee, and he has been a certified instructor for SORSI since 1979. In addition to SOT® and SOT® Craniopathy, Dr. Unger is certified in Neurolinguistic Programming (NLP). His sub-specialties include homeopathy and nutritional counseling, and is certified in acupuncture.
