Chiropractic care

Q&A with Dr. Bowden

Where did you grow up?

Pine Grove Ridge.  It's a road in the middle of nowhere off of 164 between Bergholz and Salineville, OH.

Where did you graduate from?

I graduated from Edison High School.  I attended JCC and WJU after High School.

I earned my Doctorate from Logan University in Chesterfield, MO.

How long have you been a Chiropractor?

I graduated from Logan in August 2013.

What types of conditions do you treat?

I treat all kinds of musculoskeletal conditions.  Back pain, neck pain, and foot pain are the most common conditions that I evaluate. 

What type of treatment methods do you use?

While I do use Chiropractic Manipulative Therapy for the majority of my patients, there are many that I only have perform exercises.  I am a big advocate of active-based rehabilitation.

Can you order my MRI?

This depends on your insurance coverage.  I have ordered everything from routine lab work and X-rays to brain MRI's and echocardiograms.

Do you use one of those handheld "clicky thingies"?

No. I have found those to have limited clinical application.  I have heard some anecdotal evidence to suggest otherwise.

Do you do Acupuncture.

No.  There is some evidence to suggest that Acupuncture is effective for treating certain conditions.  I just do not have any interest in traditional Oriental medicine.

Do your patients have to come in forever?

I operate under a patient-centric model of care.  I present the patient with what I believe is the best approach for their care.  We discuss outcome expectations and develop a Plan of Care.  I do not have patients that come in for maintenance care.

Where can a patient schedule an appointment?

I work side-by-side with the wonderful staff at Physical Therapy Associates.  You can schedule an appointment with me at either the Wintersville or Toronto office by calling 740-264-9500.
