Dr. Jeffrey Kowachik, DC attended Palmer College of Chiropractic in Davenport, Iowa and graduated Valedictorian in 2006. He was awarded the Presidential Scholarship for Academic Achievement, and served as an academic tutor during his time in Davenport. Dr. Jeff did his clinic abroad program in Brazil where he served 250 individuals through chiropractic care. After graduating he returned to his home state of Florida, and worked as an associate chiropractor in St. Petersburg, FL at Farcus Chiropractic before moving to Tennessee where he founded New Life Family Wellness in the Memphis area.
Dr. Jeff came to be a Chiropractor as a result of his own health challenges, and it is actually a third career for him. He graduated from Tulane University in 1986 with a B.S. in Mathematics and Computer Science, but due to a shift in the marketplace he ended up in the restaurant industry, managing a TGIFridays and Outback Steakhouse location. While in the restaurant industry he develop back and stress related health issues. This lead to several failed attempts to solve his back and other health issues through traditional medical means, including surgery to remove a cyst believed to be causing numbness in his hands. Luckily when he developed a disc issue in his low back he was lead to a surgeon who recommended he try Chiropractic care and Physical Therapy since he felt he was too young to have repeat back surgery.
This recommendation changed Dr. Jeff’s life as he learned how Chiropractic care helps the body heal by restoring function to the nervous system, and realigns the body so it can function properly. As he embarked on this new approach to his health, not only did he overcome his back pain issues, but as the interference to his nervous system system was removed he was able to overcome blood pressure issues, headaches, digestive and heartburn pain and a number of other stress related health problems, as his body was realigned and able to adapt better.
As a result, Dr. Jeff became such a huge proponent for chiropractic care, sharing his story and helping others overcome health challenges caused by spinal misalignments, that one day his Chiropractor strongly suggested he consider changing careers. About a year later he made the decision, and started his DC education. After having developed a successful practice in TN he made the decision to turn it over to his partner and move to Colorado where he fell in love with the mountains and hiking trails.
Over the years Dr. Jeff has spent a great deal of time studying functional medicine and nutrition, which he incorporates into his recommendations to his patients and in his health coaching programs.
