Meet Dr. James Aru

From Chiropractic Skeptic to Believer

I suffered a low back injury playing football when I was at Queen’s University. I wanted to keep playing, so someone suggested I see a chiropractor. I’ve been able to stay active and pain-free since. I wanted to help people just like the chiropractor helped me, so I decided to attend chiropractic college.

Helping You Prioritize Your Health

Dr. Jim earned his Bachelor of Science and Master of Science degrees before going on to Palmer College of Chiropractic, graduating in 2005. During his time in chiropractic college, Dr. Jim met fellow student, Dr. Heather Voisin, who he married in 2008. They moved back to the Waterloo region, where Dr. Heather grew up, to raise their family.

In today’s tough economic times, people are putting their health low on the priority list. Therefore, I want to make health care affordable to everyone. There is no pressure at our clinic. Our overall goal is to have you pain-free and able to live your life to the fullest.

Providing Care for All Ages and Conditions

Dr. Jim provides care for all ages of patients, from infants to seniors. “It’s so amazing to help someone that has been in and out of pain for most of their life and are now able to play golf or hold their grandchildren for the first time without pain.” We understand that sometimes people need medications, but are here to limit the amount they have to take, if any at all. When necessary, Aru Chiropractic coordinates your care with medical doctors to make sure you receive the best overall health care.

Living an Active, Healthy Family Life

Dr. Jim and Dr. Heather are the proud parents of two young children, Georgia and Slade and have another baby on the way in April. They are a busy family and love to participate in local activities. Dr. Jim did a six-year term as the director of the Cambridge YMCA, and both he and Dr. Heather enjoy exercising regularly there. Dr. Heather is an avid runner and has completed marathons.

Combined with regular exercise and eating right, regular chiropractic care is a part of their family’s overall healthy lifestyle.
