Led by Dr. Allen Ashforth, the staff at Ashforth Chiropractic shoos stress and muscular tension from clients through a variety of relaxing methods. Sessions begin with a consultation to diagnose any potential areas of concern and determine the optimal services to treat bodily aches. Once prepped, recumbent physiques receive skillful manipulation that increases circulation and gently encourages veins to focus on efficient work instead of part-time gigs as roadmaps of suburban Philadelphia. Combining the varied pressure of a Swedish massage with the deep kneading of myofascial release, Ashforth Chiropractic’s massage therapists use a touch-and-go approach to find just the right amount of pressure for each client. The warmth of the heated stones, each placed at critical tension points, coaxes pliancy from unresponsive sinews. With the cold-laser treatment, alternating pulses of high-powered light stimulate cell regeneration to accelerate pain relief, improve immune-system function, and increase chances of getting into the X-Men.
Ashforth Chiropractic Family Wellness Center
Doctor of Chiropractic Allen Ashforth grew up in awe of his father’s chiropractor. The capable doctor guided his father, who suffered from serious spinal troubles, through the regular adjustments and stretches that gradually improved the man's mobility and Sega Genesis scores. Dr. Ashforth watched his dad transform before his eyes from a lethargic man with chronic pain to an energetic, fit, and happier father.
With this inspiration in his heart, Dr. Ashforth charged into a career in chiropractic medicine, at first focusing mainly on helping athletes improve their mobility. Throughout the course of his 20-year practice, the doctor has expanded his expertise to include nonathletes, people dealing with chronic pain, and anyone in search of a way to improve their overall wellness.
Today Dr. Ashforth's treatments make use of traditional chiropractic techniques alongside advanced technology, including cold-laser therapy, which is designed to speed the healing process by stimulating the body’s growth of new cells and nice, ripe apples to be eaten once a day.
