Tampa Functional Medicine

Dr Damon Meixsell DC, MS, FMS

After serving two tours in Iraq with the US Army, Dr. Damon chose to explore civilian life. However, at the time, he did not realize what he was giving up – a tribe that he could count on, especially when the situation was dire. He realized that in our modern world, we do not typically have those deep connections, which is contributing to our current healthcare crisis. Inspired by a belief that maintaining a strong community is essential for optimizing health, he decided to integrate a tribal concept into his functional medicine model. Having overcome numerous chronic health conditions through natural means, he wants to help others heal & revitalize their lives.

Dr. Damon has obtained a doctorate in Chiropractic Medicine, MS in Exercise and Nutrition Science, BS in Exercise Science, & is currently pursuing a diplomate for the American Board of Chiropractic Internists.  He grew up in the city of Philadelphia, where as a youth, he endured through several chronic afflictions including gut issues, ear infections, sinusitis, insomnia & social anxiety.  It was not until after leaving the military that he discovered the true healing powers of nature and the human body.

While working as a personal trainer, Dr. Damon became certified in Level 1 & 2 of the Functional Movement Systems which is designed to identify asymmetries & compensations in movement patterns.  When your foundational movement patterns are altered, spinal alignment adjusts itself to avoid damage which can lead to pain.  Utilizing his knowledge of biomechanics, functional movement, chiropractic, nutrition, & functional medicine, Dr. Damon will help you restore your vitality. His personal life consists of time outdoors with his best friend Scooby, practicing movement, writing poetry, foraging, reading, breathwork, hiking, & fine-tuning his cooking skills.  He is an avid reader of the Stoics and ancient healing practices.

Dr. Damon is offering FREE 15 min phone consults to anyone interested in Functional Medicine. If you would like to schedule a phone consult, call our office at 813-983-7921 or send us a message in the chat box and we will schedule your phone consult.
