Dr. McDougal grew up in Conroe, TX and was awarded a soccer scholarship to play at Midwestern State University in Wichita Falls, TX. He played all 4 years and graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Kinesiology and minor in Biology in 1999. After Midwestern, he attended Parker College of Chiropractic. Dr. McDougal always wanted to get into a profession where he could actively work with people through injuries and he really liked the Chiropractic philosophy that the human body is a self healing organism and if given the proper direction of care, can do most of the recovery on its own. While in school Dr. McDougal was introduced to myofascial work. A combination of this and years of injuries from playing soccer and not really having a treatment for the various sprains/strains is what ultimately drove him to this area of sports medicine.
In 2013, Dr. McDougal began teaching other Chiropractors, Physical Therapist and Athletic Trainers the Fascial Distortion Model. He has had the privilege of working with multiple Major League Baseball teams teaching the team trainers how best to treat soft tissue injuries. He has also been independently contracted to work with the FC Dallas players since 2015. “The treatment that we provide here at The Tx Room, is the single best way to get athletes back to sport following an injury. More and more professional and college teams are seeking this specific model for their recovery.”
Dr. McDougal has a wonderful wife, Audrey, and two little ones, Callum and Cadence (18 months apart). He still lives an active lifestyle and enjoy running, working out, and playing golf.
