Meet Our Team

James “Jimmy” Magar, DC

Dr. Magar began his journey with chiropractic care at a young age. After sustaining a concussion, chiropractic was the only treatment that helped his headaches. Dr. Magar decided to attend chiropractic school as a way to share the same compassion he had been shown with other people. During chiropractic school, Dr. Magar completed a chiropractic mission trip to the Dominican Republic. There he discovered his desire to care for as many people as possible.
Dr. Magar began working as a chiropractic intern and later established his own practice in Kings Mountain. Since the beginning of his career, he has been focused on helping patients understand their condition and find healing through natural alternatives to traditional care.
Dr. Magar obtained a Biology degree from Lenoir-Rhyne University and a Doctorate of Chiropractic from Palmer College of Chiropractic, Florida. He is an active member of the Kings Mountain Rotary Club, the Battleground Business Alliance, and the Cleveland County Chamber of Commerce.
