Meet the Prairielands Chiropractic Clinic Team
Dr. Tonweya Langille
Dr. Langille is a native of southwest Iowa, graduating from Glenwood High School. At the age of ten, Dr. Langille experienced a life changing event. During a gymnastic tournament, Dr. Langille injured his neck and back. He sought out the help of a local Chiropractic Wellness Doctor. After an exam, x-rays and a series of corrective spinal adjustments, Dr. Langille's condition has resolved. Today with regular and consistent chiropractic maintenance and a lifestyle prevention plan in effect, he is able to fully enjoy his family, friends and his practice. Reducing nerve interference by gradually and safely aligning the spine not only improved his overall health, but proved to be pivotal for his career path.
As a result of his experience, Dr. Langille has dedicated himself to making non-drug solutions the first choice in health care. Dr. Langille currently owns and operates Prairielands Chiropractic Clinic located in the Omni Centre Business Park in downtown Council Bluffs, Iowa. His practice focuses on health and wellness through maintenance and prevention, rather than waiting for a health crisis such as pain, disability or disease to occur.
Dr. Langille has been established as one of the very best in Council Bluffs through corporate and group lectures, community wellness programs, excellent reputation and great individual results.
Dr. Langille treats many local professional and amateur athletes, as well as many children and families. He is loved by his patients not only for his skills and professionalism, but also for his warm, caring nature and attention to detail.
Dr. Langille received his Chiropractic Degree (D.C.) from Palmer College of Chiropractic, Davenport.
In his free time, Dr. Langille enjoys fishing, swimming, playing the guitar, horses, and spending quality time with his wife, Shamani, and their two beautiful children. Dr. Langille says, "Prevention is the key. As we get older, poor health can really cost us and that's why it is important to have your family, your friends, even your kids checked. Call us today for a free consult."
Dr. Langille is trained as a physician to recognize conditions which will or will not respond well to adjustments and/or various forms of therapy. Additional therapies will be provided in your care plan if needed and include ultrasound, electric stimulation, massage and manual therapies, therapeutic yoga, and supportive device training. In most cases additional recommendations will be discussed for each particular individual such as home care approaches or nutritional/supplement/remedy considerations.
To gain vital information about the patient we consult, review the case history, conduct a physical examination, and we may request laboratory analysis and / or x-rays. Unlike other health-care providers, however, chiropractic physicians also conduct a careful analysis of the patient's structure and pay particular attention to the spine. We also ask you about your life - Do you eat well? Exercise at all? How do you deal with stress? Do you have children? What do you do for work? And so on. Dr. Langille seeks the origin of the problem.
Dr. Joshua Owen
Dr. Owen grew up in the Sandhills of Nebraska, graduating from Valentine Rural High School. Dr. Owen has been under chiropractic care since the day he was born, as his father is also a chiropractor. He was able to experience the benefits of chiropractic first-hand growing up, helping him with ailments such as knee sprains, concussions, muscle strains, headaches, back pain, and asthma. When not experiencing any health issues, Dr. Owen is still regularly checked by a chiropractor and implements a healthy lifestyle so his body and mind are functioning to their potential. Before starting college, Dr. Owen realized that he had taken many of the benefits of chiropractic for granted, and developed a passion to strive to offer chiropractic care to others. Dr. Owen has always appreciated the drug-free and conservative outlook of chiropractic, and wanted the chance to be able to educate others on this approach to healthcare.
Dr. Owen graduated from the University of Nebraska-Lincoln with a Bachelor of Science degree before attending Palmer College of Chiropractic in Davenport. While there, he had the opportunity to treat many athletes through Sports Outreach and cared for all types and ages of individuals in the Palmer Clinics. He was also an anatomy lab teaching assistant and learned extra techniques for adjusting and soft tissue mobilization through elective courses. Dr. Owen graduated with his Doctor of Chiropractic degree as a valedictorian of his class on February 20, 2015. Shortly after, Dr. Owen moved to Council Bluffs and joined the team at Prairielands Chiropractic Clinic. Ever since, Dr. Owen has loved Council Bluffs and the surrounding area, and feels extremely fortunate to be able to serve such a community.
When not in the clinic, Dr. Owen enjoys all things sports related (both playing and watching), and has a strong interest in music, including playing the bass guitar. He is involved with the Teammates Mentoring Program, Council Bluffs Area Chamber of Commerce, Impact CB Young Professionals Organization, and Iowa Chiropractic Society. He also loves spending quality time with family, friends, his fiance, and their two beagles.
