Dr. Jim Liles began his Chiropractic career in 1979 after graduating from Palmer College of Chiropractic in Davenport, Iowa, with a Doctor of Chiropractic degree. He had previously earned his Bachelor of Science degree in biology from Morningside College in Sioux City, Iowa, in 1976. He went to Morningside on an athletic department scholarship as an athletic trainer for Morningside’s sports teams. In 1981 he returned to his home town and opened Liles Chiropractic Clinic Ltd. at its present location.
He has always maintained that Chiropractic care is essential for optimal health. His mission has been to provide the best nonsurgical care possible for conditions related to the spine and other joints of the body using the most up-to-date treatments available. He is also very proud that his oldest son, Dr. Jared, has joined the practice to continue providing quality chiropractic care in their home town.
When not in the office, Dr. Jim loves to spend time with his wife Joan and their family. He enjoys the outdoors and watching high school sports, especially football.
Dr. Jared has been with Liles Chiropractic Clinic since 2009. After graduating from Western Illinois University with degrees in Kinesiology and Nutrition, he attended Palmer College of Chiropractic, where he graduated with honors. During his time at Palmer, he traveled to Brazil to provide healthcare to a remote area on the Amazon River, which in turn cemented his belief in returning to a rural area to practice once he graduated. As an alumn of Lena-Winslow High School, Lena was the perfect fit.
His focus at Liles Chiropractic Clinic is to provide superior healthcare that affords his patients the best opportunity to improve their overall quality of life through enhanced biomechanics, lessened pain, and in some cases better nutritional practices. Having been a three sport athlete himself, he also has interest in helping athletes of all ages perform at their optimal level both on and off the field or court.
Aside from his time working with patients in the clinical setting, he also enjoys volunteering with the Lena-Winslow High School football program, running, and cycling. He challenges himself in competitive races ranging from local 5ks to ultramarathons and everything in between. If you see him out training, feel free to wave “hello.”
Brenda is our chiropractic technician. She also attended Palmer College of Chiropractic to earn her degree, and has been with us since 1986. She performs all exams, x-rays, and therapies in our clinic, and enjoys her daily interaction with patients.
When Brenda is not assisting our patient base, she enjoys spending time with her family, being outdoors, and cooking.
Joan Liles has been a part of Liles Chiropractic Clinic, Ltd. since it opened, assisting her husband, and now also, their son. With a Morningside College degree in business/accounting, she is involved in the office procedures and a lot of the behind-the-scenes functions. Occasionally, you will find her at the front desk where she enjoys interacting with our wonderful patients.
Family is her top priority outside the office as well as baking, chatting with friends on morning walks, ringing in the church handbell choir and volunteering at the local thrift shop.
