OUR APPROACH


Over the course of my 30 year history of Chiropractic service to the Quakertown Community, I'm clear that a healthy body can only remain healthy, when attention is given to  Structure,  Nutrition, and Exercise. These three modalities serve as the lynchpins upon which my practice has evolved.

Structure

Each patient is seen as a unique individual, whose course of treatment is designed specifically around their personal needs. All new patients are initially assessed with a comprehensive examination that includes orthopedic and neurological tests, range of motion evaluation, manual muscle testing, and motion palpation of spinal segments. The information gathered from the patient's history and examination may indicate the need for imaging, i.e., X-ray, MRI, CT scan; if so, appropriate referrals are made as required. When the necessary data is collected, a treatment program can be determined. That program, designed for the patient's unique case, may include Chiropractic Manipulative Therapy, Physical Therapy Modalities, Rehabilitative Exercises and/or Massage.

The powerful therapeutic effects of massage became patently clear when, in 2010, I found myself involved in an automobile accident. In this table-turning incident, the Doctor had now become the patient. I was experiencing a cervical spine issue, and was compelled to seek Chiropractic Manipulative Therapy with another practitioner. During my course of treatment, the Doctor recommended Massage Therapy. The resultant healing experience convinced me to include massage within the menu of services now available at the Chiropractic Healing Arts Center.

We offer this added service in a fully appointed private spa-like treatment room, and have engaged a gifted practitioner who is schooled in a number of different therapeutic techniques. I am clear that Massage Therapy, combined with any comprehensive rehabilitative program, is a major component in speeding up the healing process.

While Worker's Compensation and Motor Vehicle Accident Insurance will cover this important treatment, most private groups will not include payment, yet flexible spending accounts can be accessed to cover this important modality. Considering the possibility of an out of pocket payment needing to be made, we have chosen to keep our sessions affordable.

Nutrition

Are you eating the right foods and avoiding the wrong ones?

Getting well and Staying well includes having a proper diet, the introduction of gentle cleansing programs, and also suggests the use of specific nutritional and herbal supplements. Our office stocks the supplements that cover a wide range of health conditions. These supplements help to correct deficiencies and increase your general health and well being.

Exercise

An essential key to any comprehensive rehabilitative or maintenance oriented health care program is movement. In addition to insuring that the joints in the spine are able to move adequately through the intended ranges of motion, the muscles must be able to perform their functions as well. To achieve optimal function, a balanced exercise program requires four components or aspects: strength, full range of motion, cardiovascular capacity and proprioception or balance. As the patients of the Chiropractic Healing Arts Center are progressed through a program to restore and maintain good health, special attention is paid toward the introduction of exercises that address these four essential components of movement.

"Doc" will often pull off her jacket, get out the physioball and clearly demonstrate exercises that will support and enhance the individual patient's rehab program.

In addition to the exercises taught in the office, Dr. Malmad also instructs an early morning "boot camp" program for women. Are you curious about the concept of "boot camp?" Ask about how to join our next class!
