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.”
In Case You Didn’t Know
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. John McKeague has been practicing at The Joint in the metro area since 2015. A graduate of Northwestern Health Sciences University, Dr. McKeague leads our Region by wearing many hats. His focuses include developing the market. hiring, training. and certifying our doctors, as well and treating patients in our Apple Valley, Bloomington, Burnsville, Eagan, Maple Grove, Roseville and Woodbury clinics.
“The thing I like best about being in the chiropractic field is affecting the community in a positive way on a daily basis,” he says. “The other thing I really love is working with athletes and kids.”
In his spare time, Dr. McKeague enjoys spending time outdoors, typically hiking or fishing. He and wife Kari also delight in playing with their two sons and daughter, and overseeing their cat, Lucy.
Dr. McKeague says he became interested in chiropractic when he was a college athlete and he recognized how much it helped him. “After shadowing some doctors at some chiropractic offices, I knew I wanted to do that,” he says.
As a doctor who sees patients in multiple locations, Dr. McKeague sees many different people, which fits right in with his love for the craft of healing with his hands. He gets to spread the message to more people.
“I love The Joint’s focus on the importance of wellness care and the positive impact it has on your life,” he says.
In Case You Didn’t Know
Dr. McKeague likes it spicy. The one item he must have in his refrigerator at all times is hot sauce. “I have been a chili head from the age of 1,” he explains, “and living in a bland world would be rough.”
Given an opportunity to put together the dinner party of his dreams with various figures from history, Dr. McKeague would gather together those he says have had the most influence on his life: Egyptian ruler Cleopatra, inventor/futurist Nikola Tesla, businessman Elon Musk and comedian/host Joe Rogan.
But rather than ask questions of Cleopatra, Dr. McKeague says he would much rather have the opportunity to have dinner with himself at various points in his lifetime, “say the 10-, 25-, 50- and 80-year-old versions of me.”
“They would all be very different people, which I think would be fascinating to actually see,” Dr. McKeague says. “I think it would be cool to learn from the past and things that I may have forgotten about, and to see where I am going in the future.”
He says the coolest thing he has ever done was become a father because every day is an adventure. “Outside the lame dad answer,” he says, “I took a 100-mile hike through the canyons in Utah that was pretty amazing.”
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!”.
In case you didn't know…
Dr. Beck enjoys downhill skiing, boating, biking and most of all, time with family.
He enjoys all of our Minnesota seasons, with fall his favorite time of year. “I don't even mind winter” he said. “If it's going to snow, SNOW BIG!”
