At Pennridge Wellness Center, we take great pride in providing the finest chiropractic wellness care to our patients. Below is a sampling of the different services we offer in our Perkasie office.
We provide advanced spinal correction utilizing "state of the art" chiropractic techniques. Never in the history of chiropractic have we been able to provide the level of help and expertise that now exists. These newer correction methods are even safer, more comfortable and more effective than ever before. As a Doctor of Chiropractic, Dr. Leah Garlan has years of training and experience in spinal adjustment.
Acupuncture and Chinese Medicine
Acupuncture has been successfully treating people for over 5000 years. The philosophy behind acupuncture is to unblock meridians using tiny needles inserted into acupuncture points in different areas of the body. It is safe and very effective. Dr. Leah also utilizes other modalities withing chinese medicine for enhanced results such as cupping, gua sha and electrostim acupuncture. Acupuncture is also used for smoking cessation and weight loss.
We teach our patients special "blueprint" exercises to help strengthen and correct their own unique problem. These exercises can be performed in the comfort of your own home and can improve the effectiveness of your spinal correction. In addition to skeletal misalignment, muscles and connective tissues can be out of place or strained by improper alignment and use. Specific exercises and stretches can help your body stay in balance and in health.
We often find it helpful to "coach" our patients on certain activities they should avoid or do differently to avoid aggravating their particular health challenge. Our goal is to help every patient achieve a fulfilling and happy lifestyle full of the activities they enjoy most. We recognize that each our patient is a whole person, and help them reach true health and wellness is a collaborate effort between our professionals and our patients.
We provide specific recommendations on nutritional supplements and healthy food choices to enhance our patient's return to optimal health. Do you know which supplements and vitamins are good for you? Do you know how these supplements and vitamins interact with one another? We utilize Standard Process Supplements and specialize in the 21 Day Purification Program.
Massage therapy offers a natural conservative treatment approach that relieves musculoskeletal pain for many patients. Our office provides specific massage and muscular therapy that is tailored to meet the patient's condition and injury. The benefits of massage therapy may include increasing blood circulation, reducing swelling, relaxing muscles, relieving muscle pain and spasms, and aid in recovery and range of motion. Our massage therapist, Lisa, is in the office on Monday and Wednesday!
