Meet Dr. Travis Howell

Davenport Chiropractor, Dr. Travis Howell

As a lifetime chiropractic wellness patient, it was an easy decision to become a chiropractor.”

When I graduated high school I enrolled in the Information Technology program at AIB College of Business. Although I excelled in the program, I quickly realized that I was not cut out to spend my life in front of a computer. So when I graduated from AIB I became a retail sales manager…. not an IT guy. Around this time, I became a first-time father of a beautiful little baby girl, Kylie.

When Kylie was 2 years old, she began suffering from chronic ear infections. Like many parents, we attempted to “fix” the problem with antibiotics.  After about four episodes in less than a year it was suggested to us that she needed tubes in her ears to prevent these chronic ear infections.

I asked if there were any other options and of course I was told “no.”

But then suddenly the light bulb came on. I was a regular chiropractic patient at the time and had been since I was her age, but for some reason I hadn’t made the connection before that moment. I realized I needed to get her into my chiropractor to have her evaluated and checked for subluxation. Sure enough she was subluxated in the cervical region (upper neck) and needed correction. No tubes. No antibiotics. No more ear infections.

I never realized the power of an adjustment

Until that point in my life, I took chiropractic care for granted and never realized the power of the adjustment. I had used chiropractic care my whole life for prevention and resolution of illnesses, injuries and general wellness but seeing what it could do to help my suffering toddler was more powerful than anything I had ever seen. Roughly one year later, I enrolled in chiropractic school and never looked back. The younger of my two daughters has been checked and adjusted since birth and has not had a single ear infection!

My Educational Experience

As a Quad City Area native, choosing my chiropractic school was pretty easy. But besides location… Palmer College is the birthplace of chiropractic and one of the most prestigious chiropractic schools in the world. I was fortunate enough to have great classroom and clinical success and was able to finish my studies one trimester early. I followed that with an internship in a large and well known chiropractic office in Walcott, IA. I have continued my education and have become a Certified Chiropractic Extremities Practitioner (CCEP) and I am currently working towards completing my Pediatric and Wellness Certifications.

Howell Chiropractic is Built Around Families

My wife, Denise, and I have two wonderful daughters, Kylie and Hannah and a son, Henry. We make frequent trips to Long Island NY to visit Denise’s family and the beach. And no NY trip is complete without a trip to NYC to catch a Broadway show, the Rockefeller Christmas tree or the American Girl Store (if you have daughters… you understand). When I get the chance, I enjoy playing golf and cheering for the Hawkeyes, Bears and Cubs.

Enough about me! If you find yourself asking the question, “I wonder if chiropractic can help me”…. The answer is almost certainly, YES! So contact us to let us help you take the first step towards better health and a better life. See you soon!
