Dr. Frank Bowling

Dr._Frank_Bowling_Pic_1_1.jpg

Dr. Frank Bowling is a native Hoosier, having grown up in Loogootee and graduated from high school there in 1970. He is the second son of current Loogootee Mayor Don Bowling and the late Patricia (Summers) Bowling. He received his undergraduate training at Rose-Hulman Institute and Indiana State University in Terre Haute, and his chiropractic education at Logan College in St. Louis and Life University in Marietta, Georgia.

Upon graduation, Dr. Bowling established a private practice in Woodstock, Georgia, where he spent the next 6 years. During that time, he met and married the former Mary Sue Wonder of Washington. She is the daughter of the late Robert Wonder and Patty Hopewell. Dr. and Mrs. Bowling met on a flight home for Christmas in 1979 (she was working in a hospital in Jacksonville, Florida), and it was only a matter of time before the couple relocated back home.

Dr. Bowling has now been practicing chiropractic for 33 years (26 here in Washington). He and Mary Sue have a son and a daughter, Eli and Sarah, ages 26 and 24 (see family picture below).  Their granddaughter, Annabelle Grace Driller, daughter of Sarah and Brent, was born on December 19, 2008, and their grandson, Graham Michael Driller, was born on December 28th, 2010.

Active in both chiropractic and civic organizations, Dr. Bowling is a Diplomate of the National Board of Chiropractic Examiners, a member of the International Chiropractors Association (ICA), and First Vice President of the ICA of Indiana. Locally, he is President of the Washington Rotary Club.

A self-confessed "seminar addict," Dr. Bowling is a firm believer in life-long learning, and attends post-graduate educational programs around the country an average of one weekend a month. He is an avid reader and writer, has had several articles accepted in major chiropractic journals, and writes a regular column for insertion into the Washington Times-Herald every month on topics ranging across virtually every aspect of health and life, from the technical to the philosophical to the humorous.

"It was the chiropractic philosophy that initially attracted me to the profession," Dr. Bowling states. "The principle of an innate intelligence running the body, the idea that it has the capacity to heal itself, and the concept of utilizing a natural, drugless, non-surgical approach before resorting to more invasive measures- that really made a lot of sense to me, and still does."

  • An Apple a Day . . .

    What is so good about an apple? Is it the color, ranging from ruby red to pale pink? Is it the crunch? The sweetness? Or is it, instead, a combination of all of these qualities, plus the natural goodness derived from the apple's secret ingredients — phytonutrients? If this were a multiple choice quiz, the answer would be "all of the above". Importantly, in addition to possessing numerous appealing physical qualities, apples contain an abundance of health-promoting biochemicals known as phytonutrients.1,2 These specific organic molecules are derived not only from apples but many other fresh fruits and vegetables, and help power the immune system, protect against cancer, maintain healthy eyes, and assist cells in clearing out metabolic waste products such as free radicals. ...
