About Dr. Jeffrey James

Meet Dr. Jeffrey James & Dr. Penny Ploch 


For more than 35 years, Jeffrey James, DC, has been educating adults on the importance of achieving optimal physical function and wellness through preventive chiropractic health care. At his practice, Dr. Jeffrey James Chiropractic Care, in Evansville, Indiana, Dr. James takes the time to thoroughly examine each individual and considers their overall health and lifestyle so he can develop an effective, personalized treatment plan. Dr. James discovered the benefits of chiropractic care after a sports injury in high school. He fell in love with chiropractic’s natural approach to healing the body, rather than more conventional medical approaches that rely on medications and surgeries to correct problems. Dr. James was so inspired after his own experiences as a chiropractic patient that he decided to dedicate his passion for helping others through a career as a chiropractor.

After two years of pre-med, Dr. James attended Logan Chiropractic College for three and a half years. He graduated in August of 1982, with Bachelor of Science and Doctor of Chiropractic degrees. It was at chiropractic college where he also met his wife, Dr. Penny Ploch James.

Dr. James’ philosophy is based on proactive, preventive care so he can help men and women achieve their optimal potential, and stay free of pain, symptoms, and debilitating conditions for a lifetime. As a long-standing member serving his community through chiropractic care, Dr. James earned a gold level chiropractor Readers’ Choice Award in 2014 by readers of the Evansville Courier & Press. 

When not caring for patients in Evansville and the surrounding areas, Dr. James enjoys spending time with his wife and two daughters. As an avid hunter, fisher, and bike rider, he stays active both at home and while traveling with his family.
