About Us

James G. Halvorson, DC, DACAN

I am an evidenced-based chiropractor and have been in practice for over 30 years.  I graduated summa cum laude from Concordia College (Moorhead, Minnesota) in 1984 and then with highest honors from Northwestern College of Chiropractic (Bloomington, Minnesota) in 1987.

I have had the incredible experience of running my own practice in North Carolina and I have worked as a staff chiropractor for several medical groups in California and North Carolina.  I love working and collaborating care within a multi-disciplinary medical group setting and am thrilled to continue that endeavor as part of the health care team at Temecula Valley Advanced Medicine in Murrieta.  At TVAM, we offer primary medical services, chiropractic, physical therapy, acupuncture, nutrition and regenerative medicine.  We are committed to helping people achieve and maintain optimal health.

“The chiropractic profession is assuming its valuable and appropriate role in the health care system in this country and around the world. As this happens, the professional battles of the past will fade and the patient at last will be the true winner.”  Wayne Jonas, MD

Paula Halvorson, DC

Dr. Paula attended the University of Minnesota, then Mankato State University.  She also graduated with highest honors from Northwestern College of Chiropractic in 1987.  Paula has worked in several chiropractic clinics and has also worked within the medical group setting.  In addition, she was in private practice and managed Halvorson Chiropractic Clinic for 14 years.
