Dr. Daniel Sowada joined The Joint Chiropractic’s network of healthcare professionals in 2016, and landed at the Bloomington location in 2018. He received his doctorate in chiropractic from Northwestern Health Sciences University with an emphasis on health and exercise science.
Dr. Sowada says his a-ha moment in the chiropractic field didn’t occur until after he started practicing. “Once I started adjusting people, and helped them get better from their pains that no other healthcare provider could help them with, was when I knew I had made the right choice,” he says. “It’s incredibly satisfying to adjust someone and providing the patient relief from their pain.
“I often joke when I leave the house by making the comment ‘gotta go save some lives.’ I may not be physically saving someone from death but I may be giving someone their life back by improving the quality of their life with chiropractic and, in turn, they may be doing things they may not have thought possible again. Just doing the Lord’s work!”
Dr. Sowada shares his time with “the most photogenic dogs ever,” he says. “Marley, an English retriever mix, is the chill cuddly one, and Khali, the Labrador/husky mix, is the spunky energetic one.”
He likes working at the Bloomington clinic and providing a great service to his patients. “I love the network of many offices across the country, the very affordable wellness rates, our appreciation for those in the military by offering the military discount, and lately the app being able to see wait times and the current doctor on for the day,” Dr. Sowada says. “But mostly I like the electronic software we use for our notes and being able to do straight chiropractic.”

Dr. Sowada says the one item that he must keep in his refrigerator is nature’s perfect food. “Eggs are the most complete protein there is,” he says. “Protein equals gains.”
The coolest thing he has ever done, he adds, took place at an athletic event. “I crushed two -- I’m talking moon shots -- back-to-back homers at a softball game on Mother’s Day at the only softball game my mom ever attended for one of her kids,” Dr. Sowada said. “I was more of a speedy defensive player and not really known for home run power, so pulling off back-to-back homers was a feat.”
Dr. Jonathan Beck is committed to improving his patients’ quality of life. While many individuals seek his care for pain relief, Dr. Beck also uses chiropractic methods to restore and maintain overall health and longevity through corrective and preventative care. He says “My adjustments are gentle and low force to ensure patients are as comfortable as possible during the process of bringing them back to their optimal health”.
Dr. Beck received his Doctorate in Chiropractic from Northwestern College of Chiropractic in Bloomington, Minnesota in 2003. “I really enjoy staying up to date on the latest chiropractic and healthcare methods so I can utilize what I learn in the clinical setting. My goal is to improve and maintain the health of my patients so they can enjoy life to the fullest!”
Why I became a chiropractor…
“While in high school I helped from time to time in a chiropractic office and became interested in how chiropractic could help so many people with such diverse symptoms” said Dr. Beck. “It amazed me that adjusting a person could set the healing process in motion and people would start feeling great again!”
Improving people’s lives through better health is Dr. Beck’s goal. “I've always been intrigued by how the human body works and at how it can heal itself”, he explained. “I'm even more impressed by how chiropractic care can enhance that healing process!”.

Dr. Xiong is a noodle head. When asked what he can’t live without in his kitchen “I always have to have different varieties of noodles for a nice quick savory meal when I need it.” He says his favorite varieties are Korean noodles and Migoreng.
Given the opportunity to put together a dinner party of his dreams with various figures from history, Dr. Xiong would gather together a comedic group to liven up life: actors Dwayne Johnson, Steve Carell, and actress Emily Blunt.
