Laurel Health Chiropractic Services

Do you struggle with back or neck pain? Do your joints feel stiff and your muscles achy? The Laurel Health Centers provide expert chiropractic services to patients in Tioga and Bradford Counties in northern Pennsylvania. We believe that chiropractic care should be accessible to all, no matter a patient's insurance, background, age, or financial circumstances. 


What Is Chiropractic Care?

Your body has a complex system of bones, joints, muscles, and soft tissue that work together to help you move. If one part of that system is malfunctioning, the whole body can be affected. Trained chiropractors are experts in the musculoskeletal system, especially the function of the spine, and can help you get back in motion safely. 

Through gentle manipulations of the spine, chiropractors work to reduce pain and inflammation while improving mobility and range of motion. The goal is to relieve pain, improve motion, and restore your body's proper alignment without surgery or medications.  


When to See a Chiropractor

Our expert chiropractors have years of experience treating patients with back, neck, nerve, and joint problems. Chiropractic care may be effective in treating:

  • Back or neck discomfort
  • Joint pain
  • Muscle aches
  • Nerve pain, including sciatica 
  • Tingling or numbness in your hands or feet
  • Headaches, including migraines
  • Pain in your extremities (hands, feet, arms, legs)
  • Mobility or range-of-motion issues
  • Repetitive motion or sports injuries, such as tennis elbow 
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Poor posture

What to Expect

Laurel Health offers a wide range of chiropractic services with care tailored to your unique health needs. Traditional chiropractic treatment involves lying on your stomach on a special table designed to help the chiropractor gently ease your body into alignment and address pain, inflammation, and inflexibility. Our team can perform traditional manual adjustments by hand or use extra-gentle, precision-guided adjustment tools like the Sigma Adjuster, which can be a good fit for young children, older adults, and back surgery patients. Our chiropractors are also certified to utilize special techniques like the McKenzie Method® of Mechanical Diagnosis and Therapy (MDT) and the Webster method for pregnant women. 


Why Your Spine Health Matters

Back and neck pain can seriously impact your quality of life, and injuries to your spine or joints can affect your mobility. Very physical jobs like factory work, construction, landscaping, and auto repair may put you at risk for back and joint injuries. Office work can also put excessive strain on your spine and joints when sitting for long hours and increase your risk of repetitive stress from typing, writing, and mouse work. A trained chiropractor plays a key role in restoring and maintaining your spinal health. Chiropractic care can help relieve pain, improve range of motion, and help you recover after an injury. Together, we can get you back to work and doing the things you love safely. 


The Laurel Health Difference

Laurel Health believes in healthcare for everyone. We care for patients of all ages and provide care regardless of your ability to pay. When you choose the Laurel Health Centers, you can count on a holistic, patient-centric approach to care that sees each patient as a whole person with unique needs. We advocate for your health to ensure you receive the care you need when you need it. 


Affordable Care

Too often, cost is a barrier to effective chiropractic care. Many private chiropractors are unable to accept a wide range of medical insurance. The Laurel Health Centers are proud to offer high-quality chiropractic services no matter your financial or insurance situation. Our status as federally qualified health centers (FQHC) allows us to accept most insurance types, including commercial plans, Medicare, CHIP, and Medicaid. We also offer a sliding fee program to qualifying patients to assist with co-pays, deductibles, and medications.


Expert Chiropractors

Our highly skilled chiropractors are experts in spinal health with a genuine passion for helping their patients live freer, fuller lives. They understand the complex mechanics of the body and personalize their approach based on your specific needs and comfort level. Our team stays on the cutting-edge with highly specialized training, tools, and extensive experience to help patients find relief.


Care Coordination

Our chiropractic team works with other Laurel Health medical experts to create a seamless patient experience. If you meet with one of our primary care, rehabilitation, or sports medicine doctors about back, neck, or joint pain, they can answer your questions about chiropractic care and discuss whether chiropractic care would be a good fit for your treatment. You can also make an appointment with our chiropractors directly — no referral needed. To make a chiropractic appointment in Mansfield, call 570-662-2002. To make an appointment in Elkland or Wellsboro, call 570-724-1010


Specialized Testing

Our Wellsboro Laurel Health Center offers both chiropractic care and electromyography, also known as EMG testing. Electromyography evaluates muscle and nerve health. It can be used to diagnose neuromuscular concerns like carpal tunnel syndrome, muscular dystrophy, nerve root conditions, and nerve-to-muscle connective disorders.

If you are experiencing unusual muscle or nerve symptoms, reach out to Laurel Health for more information about EMG testing at 570-724-1010

Signs that can indicate a neuromuscular problem include:

  • Limb pain
  • Numbness or tingling sensations
  • Muscle weakness

Dr. Sarah Taylor, Chiropractor

Dr. Sarah Taylor is a Troy local and is passionate about giving back to and practicing in the same rural communities that supported her growing up.
