Dr. Scranton graduated with a Bachelors of Accounting Degree from the University of Illinois in 1991. While working in Chicago, shortly after college, he injured my shoulder in a Volleyball match. He was unable to raise his arm above his shoulder and after months of physical therapy and rehab he faced surgery. It was at that time that a friend intervened and referred him to a chiropractor. Within a couple of weeks he was back to playing Volleyball like nothing had happened. It is because of this personal experience that he decided to become a chiropractor.
Dr. Scranton graduated from Palmer College of Chiropractic in 1999 and went on to complete the course in the Gonstead Advanced Technique. This included over 100 hours of postgraduate instruction in the Gonstead Chiropractic system. In 1997, before he graduated, he completed the Mally Enterprises course on advanced extremity adjusting technique. He is a member of the Gonstead Clinical Studies Society and the Utah Chiropractic Association He is board certified by the National Board of Chiropractic Examiners and licensed to practice in the state of Utah and Illinois.
In 2007 he became a member of the international organization, Fibromyalgia Centers of America. He has frequently traveled to Georgia to train with other doctors of chiropractic in specific techniques that offer hope to sufferers of Fibromyalgia and Chronic Fatigue. In January 2009 he was honored by becoming the President of Fibromyalgia Centers of America and has since traveled nationally speaking and training fellow doctors.
His love for chiropractic and travel has taken him to all parts of the world. He has had the privilege to adjust orphans in China, medical staff in Russia, missionaries in Mongolia and recently he returned from a trip to India as a Faculty member with Palmer College of Chiropractic, where he supervised students and adjusted many school children and needy adults. It is his passion to share chiropractic with you, his neighbor, and with the world.
His experiences have given him a great opportunity to learn how to care for a wide variety of ailments from which his patients suffer. His mission is to restore health through natural chiropractic care, allowing his patients to live their lives to the fullest
He grew up in the Moline, Illinois and chose to start his first practice in Rock Island, Illinois (the town next door) and successfully served his community for 12 years.
In 2011 he and his family decided to head west to Utah. They sold their business and moved to South Jordan, Utah where he continues to serve his new community.

Dr. J. has been blessed by chiropractic, and wants to pass this blessing onto his patients. He graduated from Drake University in Des Moines, IA and spent most of his 20s working in the corporate world. It was during this time that he experienced severe low back pain and wasn’t able to stand in one spot for more than a few minutes before the pain became excruciating. This also prevented him from doing many of the things he enjoyed doing, especially physical activities like basketball, tennis and golf.
He sought help in the form of chiropractic. It took four chiropractors to determine what the cause of his condition was, but he is very thankful that he stuck with it. Along the way, he learned that while chiropractic helps correct the cause of things like neck and back pain, it is much bigger than that. He learned that misaligned bones in the spine can cause pressure on the nerves that connect the brain and spinal cord to the muscles and organs of the body. Pressure on these nerves can potentially lead to any number of health conditions, including asthma, acid reflux, constipation, and fibromyalgia. After experiencing the pain relief as well as understanding the “bigness” of chiropractic, Dr. J. knew he wanted to be a chiropractor.
In 2005, he enrolled at the oldest and most prestigious chiropractic school in the world, Palmer College of Chiropractic in Davenport, IA. While a student at Palmer, he became an intern at the renowned Troxell Intern Program, which focuses on learning and teaching the Gonstead chiropractic method. It was a Gonstead practitioner who corrected his condition, and he wanted to help others by using this highly specialized technique. As an intern, he spent countless hours in the evenings and weekends learning about the Gonstead method. He gave back and taught the method to other students after graduating. Also during his time at Palmer, Dr. J. took advantage of the opportunity to help others by traveling to India where he had the opportunity to help restore health to hundreds of children and adults.
Dr. J. is committed to providing caring and superior care to his patients, both young and old. His corrective and wellness oriented approach to health also includes measurable spinal correction. When he’s not in the office or out in the community spreading the message of chiropractic through spinal health screenings or health talks, Dr. J. enjoys spending time with his wife Tara, traveling, and going to seminars. He also enjoys playing those sports he wasn’t able to for many years, tennis, golf, and of course, basketball. After all, when you’re 6’7” and your name is Dr. J., you have to play basketball, right?
