Welcome To Chesapeake Spine Center
Here at Chesapeake Spine Center, we are proud to help our patients live better, healthier lives.
Through the practice of functional medicine, Dr. MacDowall is passionate about pinpointing and addressing underlying causes of pain and disease, as opposed to the traditional approach of treating symptoms. This is achieved by spending time with each patient to understand their histories as well as potential genetic, lifestyle and environmental factors that can greatly impact patient health. Health problems categorized as “chronic” or “degenerative”, meaning they accumulate over time, slowly take their toll on quality of life. Functional medicine is progressive practice of medicine that better targets patient needs. Dr. MacDowall uses hands on diagnostic, orthopedic and neurological testing with stress X-rays, as well as blood work to determine your functional health.
