Through his research and previous practice Dr. James Logan evolved a set of principles that inform and influence his philosophy of advanced body adjustments. In 2007, he established Backprakt to provide a practical alternative to pain killers and anti-inflammatory drugs.
Dr Logan defines his professional practice as the application of modern science and technology to the human body to promote natural healing, improve performance and well-being. There are many forms of naturopathic practices. What defines the difference between Jim and others is best described by his patients. The philosophy of Backprakt is to combine the best evidenced technique with sound diagnoses and treat the patient holistically to maximize the clinical therapeutic effect and with the minimum reliance on ethical pharmaceuticals.

1. "Is Dr Logan an Osteopath, Chiropractor or Physiotherapist?"
Unequivocal Answer. He is None of the above. He is a Physiologist, whose specialisms are neuromuscular conditions, human movement, flexibility, pain relief and promoting health and well-being.
2. "Does Dr Logan do the same things as an Osteopath, Chiropractor or Physiotherapist?"
Unequivocal Answer. No he does not. He is unique in his work. Many may claim to share the same therapeutic goals but he is different. One patient defines the difference in his own words: - "Amazing........Having suffered from back pain for 25 years and visited osteopaths, physiotherapist and chiropractors without lasting success, I had given up all hope of ever being free of pain. It was more in hope than expectation that I visited Dr Logan. After just 3 visits I was standing straighter than ever had during the last 25 years and with significantly reduced back pain."
