Chiropractic Services

Suffering from back, neck, muscle, or joint pain? The Laurel Health Centers have you covered! We believe in safe, expert chiropractic care for all. Our expert chiropractors Sarah Taylor, DC and Steven Heffner, DC work in tandem with our primary care, sports medicine, and rehabilitation teams to safely treat and improve pain, inflammation, mobility, posture, and range of motion. Laurel Health provides comprehensive chiropractic care to patients of all ages at the Laurel Health Centers in ElklandMansfield, and Wellsboro PA


No referral is needed. To make an appointment with Dr. Sarah Taylor, call 570-662-2002. To make an appointment with Dr. Steven Heffner, call 570-724-1010


We also offer EMG testing in Wellsboro to evaluate the health of muscles and nerves to diagnose neuromuscular issues, including carpal tunnel, conditions affecting the nerve root, muscular dystrophy, and nerve-to-muscle connective disorders. If you are experiencing numbness, tingling sensations, muscle weakness, limb pain, or unexplained muscle cramping, talk to your healthcare provider about whether you may benefit from an EMG test.




In addition to the back and neck strain caused by prolonged sitting in office jobs, rural communities like ours also have many jobs involving physical labor in factories, construction, farms, landscaping, and auto body shops carrying a greater risk for back and joint injuries. Chiropractic care plays a key role in pain management and the rehabilitation of those injuries, but cost is often a barrier to care, as many private chiropractors cannot accept a wide selection of insurances. 


The Laurel Health Centers seek to remove cost barriers by offering high-quality chiropractic care to all patients, regardless of their ability to pay. As federally qualified health centers, we accept most major commercial insurances as well as Medicare, Medicaid, and sliding fee programs for uninsured and underinsured patients.
