Dr. Royce McGowan, DC, opened his practice with his wife Dr. Shelita McGowan in Jacksonville, Florida, where they serve as experts in easing physical pain and stress through chiropractic treatments.
Dr. McGowan was born in Lexington, Kentucky, and raised in Jacksonville, where he attended high school and became a football star. He earned an athletic scholarship to Tennessee State University and was headed for a pro career when he hurt his knee in his junior year, which ended his dream of becoming a professional athlete.
His second dream was to become a doctor and help people, so he learned a “whole person approach” to wellness that involves understanding the causes of the aches and pains and making the necessary adjustments for improved health, including lifestyle adjustments, dietary changes, and body manipulations.
Dr. McGowan met his wife Shelita at Life University in Atlanta where they both earned their degrees in chiropractic. The couple moved to Jacksonville where Dr. Royce McGowan worked at First Coast Medical Center before they launched their own practice.
When he’s not at the office telling patients, “I’ve got your back,” Dr. McGowan spends time with his wife and children, taking them fishing and going to the movies.
