Founded by an interventional pain physician and a specialist in physical medicine and rehabilitation, Performance Spine & Sports Medicine takes a team-oriented approach to treating injury and illness. The interdisciplinary, nonsurgical institute develops a physician-directed plan for each client that may incorporate physical therapy, chiropractic adjustments with a whole-body approach, and acupuncture. These plans address anything from herniated discs and sprains to migraines and chronic pain. Whether the experts are treating nervous-system maladies or assessing sports performance with OptoJump technology and simulated locker-room pep talks, they continually check in with each patient to make sure treatments meet individual needs.
An 18-year veteran of the fitness industry, Ilene Morris White runs a wellness center, Pilates studio, and private gym out of a homey office on Newtown Yardley Road. That environment features beautifully finished wooden furnishes, colonial-esque French doors, and potted trees with G.I. Joes climbing them. Amid these trappings, clients enjoy not only the fitness classes but also chiropractic services, massage therapy, and prenatal workout classes. The center also specializes in corrective exercise and rehab.
Synergy Rehabilitation and Chiropractic's doctor of chiropractic Jennifer Grozalis is not only a board-certified chiropractor but also an Active Release Techniques (ART) certified practitioner with a decade of experience. Dr. Grozalis specializes in sports injuries and difficult-to-treat cases that haven't responded to traditional chiropractic manipulation, physical therapy, or soothing lullabies. She also incorporates Pilates equipment into her therapies, using exercises and stretches on the reformer and ladder barrel to enhance ART soft-tissue sessions and adding Pilates mat movements to increase a patient's range of motion during physical-therapy routines.
Dr. Grozalis has assembled a talented team to help facilitate the healing process, including massage therapists and a rehabilitation therapist who is also a certified Pilates instructor. Athletes can also receive performance-enhancement training from pro-football champion and former Philadelphia Eagle Vaughn Hebron.
Bucks County Wellness Centre's muscle manipulators and Skin Envy's throng of façade fixers combine efforts to rejuvenate weary anatomies with therapeutic services. Unlike the icy grip of an automated kneading bot, a hot-stone massage employs the warmth and pressure of smooth stones to target musculoskeletal pain and alleviate aches on targeted areas of the body. The soothing, 60-minute session also works to improve circulation, reduce swelling, and promote relaxation. During an Antioxidant Infusions facial, a trained aesthetician swaddles visages in a Institut' DERMed solution containing natural ingredients that increase product penetration and effectiveness. Aimed at maintaining skin health and lifting facial pigment, the 40-minute treatment brightens the complexion and improves clarity, leaving faces radiant enough to effectively distract advancing hordes of slow lorises.
Dr. David Tucker, a board-certified physician and member of the Pennsylvania Chiropractic Association, helms a professional staff who address and treats illness, injury, and pain. His experience in tending to back discomfort began in 1996 while he was working as a physical-therapy assistant at a private practice. There he began to practice the healing techniques of the chiropractic field, learning precise spinal-adjustment techniques and holistic pain treatments and memorizing vertebrae to the tune of “Big Poppa” by The Notorious B.I.G. Dr. Tucker’s journey led him to practice at offices throughout New Jersey and Pennsylvania before he gathered an experienced team—consisting of massage therapists, medical assistants, an acupuncturist, and a personal trainer—and opened the doors to his own practice in Langhorne. Here, he and his crew help patients change their lifestyles through chiropractic, physiotherapy, massage, and weight-loss services that focus on prevention rather than simply treating pain with drugs or trying to wish it away.
Escape Body Works Boutique realizes that pain isn't just a problem for the person affected. It also touches those around them through displays of unhappiness and irritability. The center's team of massage therapists helps ease that pain—and perhaps mend personal relationships as a result—through four styles of tension-melting massage. Swedish and hot-stone modalities take a generalized approach that's ideal for creating full-body relaxation, while deep-tissue massage banishes more localized tension with focused, firm pressure. The therapists also specialize in pregnancy massage, which uses belly-safe positions to help ease back pain stemming from carrying a child or from using your belly to store gym equipment.
