A Message from the Doctor:

Hi, I'm Dr. Ken Murkowski and I'd like to personally thank you for visiting our website. It is my hope that you'll choose the Pro-Active Chiropractic and Wellness Center for all your chiropractic needs.

We are a progressive health care facility that since our inception has focused on guiding patients through a proactive model of preventative, functional spinal care.

On January 5, 1976, Dr. John Cowan hung up his shingle and started practice on the corner of Clintonville Rd. and Walton Blvd. He quickly outgrew the building and in 1980 moved to the Sashabaw/ I-75 corridor.  On January 6, 2021, after 45 years of caring for patients, Dr. Cowan retired. 

I am a second generation chiropractor and took over where Dr. Cowan left off. Prior to coming here I practiced in Grand Rapids for 5 years and prior to that I practiced with my father in Jackson for 3 years. 

Our team has a myriad of techniques to assist any patient and condition type. We have flexible hours and are available for appointments 5 days a week.

What Our Patients Say

Pro-Active Chiropractic and Wellness

Dr. Murkowski is amazing. Having never seen a chiropractor in my 40+ years of life, I didn't know what to expect. Dr. M is very professional and friendly. He explained everything well, answering all of my questions. Most importantly, he has improved the curvatures in my back to a normal level, and I'm feeling great! Thank you, Dr. Murkowski!

Leave it to Dr Cowan to find the best replacement for himself after retiring his practice. Dr Murkowski has helped my troubled back from an accident I had awhile back. He is the best! As Dr Cowan was! Need adjustments you won't be disappointed!

I absolutely love the staff here. Although Dr. Cowan retired, he knew he had to pick someone that would fill his shoes. Dr. Ken is an amazing replacement.
