APicture of the Doctors MESSAGE FROM THE DOCTOR

Hi, I'm Dr. John Cowan and I'd like to personally thank you for visiting our website. It is our hope that after you get a chance to look through our web site you'll decide to choose the Cowan Chiropractic Clinic for your chiropractic health care.

We are a progressive health care facility that since its inception in 1976 has focused on guiding patients through a proactive model of preventative stay well care as well as functional spinal care.

Our clinic has a team of two chiropractors with a myriad of techniques to assist any patient and condition type. We have flexible hours and are available for appointments 6 days a week, with 24 hours emergency accessibility when we are closed.

We have had the privilege of serving more than 18,000 area residents and are proud to have been honored by Governor John Engler as "having earned the reputation as one of the states finest chiropractic clinics.
For over four decades, the Cowan Chiropractic Clinic has delivered a sensible, proactive approach to preventative spinal health care and fitness with a program of spinal adjustments, targeted stretching and core exercise. We also offer massage, nutritional supplements and classes in health living, such as body detoxification, proper eating habits, weight management, and stress control. The care you receive here is designed to keep you healthy and prevent chronic conditions from occurring. With chiropractic care and good lifestyle choices, life should be like a candle, burning brightly to the very end, flickering once or twice and then going out. It should not be, “Just one darn thing after another" as author Elbert Hubbard said. Prevention and good lifestyle choices will decrease the incidence of sickness and disease and dramatically lower the cost of health care!

Why We Are OPEN:

After assessing the risks posed by the coronavirus crisis, we have concluded that it is much more important for the health, safety and well-being of our clients for Cowan Chiropractic to remain open for business.

While our practice is very busy, we rarely have more than 10 people in our office at any one time. From our assessment, we believe that for our typical wellness client, the risk of infection with the virus in the Clarkston area is very low.

Furthermore, we believe it is much more important for our clients to maintain their schedule of regular chiropractic care during this crisis and thus maintain, improve and increase your immune system function—which is your greatest defense against ALL sickness, disease and infection. In other words, in a health crisis such as this, you need chiropractic care now more than ever!

Historical data regarding the 1918 flu pandemic shows that people under chiropractic care had a 98% higher survival rate (https://naturallivingfamily.com/how-to-avoid-the-flu/).

A 3-year study conducted by Dr. Ronald Pero, then chief of cancer prevention at New York’s Preventive Medicine Institute concluded that the 107 patients under long-term chiropractic care had a 200% greater immune competence than people who had not received chiropractic care. Dr. Pero commented, “I have never seen a group other than this chiropractic group experience a 200% increase over the normal patients.” Specifically, the study demonstrated that the cells responsible for engulfing and destroying viruses, bacteria, parasites and cancer cells are anywhere from 2 times to 4 times more active in people who get regular chiropractic care ("Medical Researcher Excited By CBSRF
Project Results." The Chiropractic Journal, August 1989; 32).

In addition to regular chiropractic care, other steps you can take now to fortify your immune system against this, and every virus for that matter, is to make it your practice to:

  • drink plenty of water (at least eight 8 oz. glasses of water daily)
  • take 1000-3000 grams of vitamin C per day
  • take 5000-10000 I.U. of vitamin D3 daily
  • take 400-500 mg of magnesium daily
  • actively de-stress daily utilizing meditation and turning off the news, etc.
  • We believe the fear of this crisis is far more destructive to our health than the actual virus. So please, focus on health.

    It is our intent to conduct “business as usual,” taking into consideration and implementation the CDC’s guidelines, and to serve you, our client and friend to the best of our ability until things return to normal—which they inevitably will.

    While we will continue to take care of our established clients and new patients, we will be following the Governor’s Executive orders, which currently prohibit visitors of a non-necessary role from entering the office. Of course caretakers of our clients will continue to be welcomed.

    We look forward to seeing you soon!

    Much Love and Appreciation,

    Dr. John & April Cowan
