The BCC Staff

Dr. Joel Kirsch, affectionately known as "Dr. J", joined Birmingham Chiropractic Clinic in February of 2007. He was drawn back to his hometown by the desire to be close to his family and friends, and the opportunity to work with his father.

Dr. J earned his bachelors degree in exercise science from Indiana University in 2003 and doctorate of chiropractic from National University of Health Sciences in 2006. He is a candidate for a Diplomate Degree in Chiropractic Rehabilitation (ACRB), after taking more than 300 hours of post-graduate rehab courses. He is also a member of the International Society of Clinical Rehab Specialists (ISCRS).

Dr. J has worked with many of the world's foremost experts in spinal care and rehabilitation. In the last few years, he has traveled across the country, and as far as Australia and Europe to bring his patients the latest and most-effective treatment available.

His extensive training allows him to treat a wide scope of conditions. Acute neck and low back pain are among the most common complaints, but Dr. J also treats a significant number of diverse and challenging cases with excellent results. They include:

  • Athletes: Athletes seeking improved performance, biomechanics, and injury reduction/treatment.
  • Children: Children with developmentally delayed motor disorders and/or sensory integration disturbances.
  • Chronic Pain: Chronic and previously unresolved chiropractic, physical therapy and surgical cases.
  • Nerve Pain: Nerve related disorders, causing persistent burning numbness and tingling in the arms or legs.
  • Yoga: Yoga enthusiasts seeking reduction of pain, tightness, or injury associated with specific poses.

In his free time, Dr. J enjoys playing tennis, traveling and spending time with his friends and family.
