Laurel Health Centers – Meet Dr. Taylor

Welcoming Chiropractor Dr. Sarah Taylor to the Laurel Health Family

 

by Kristy Warren - May 20, 2020

To meet our community’s growing needs, the Laurel Health Centers’ chiropractic team is growing, too! Join us as we welcome Dr. Sarah Taylor to the Laurel Health family and learn more about how we can improve our mobility, better manage pain, and maintain our bone and joint health as we age.

Dr. Taylor was an active athlete throughout school, and like other young athletes, she experienced many of the common movement injuries chiropractic care seeks to address and prevent. She credits her own battle with injuries for drawing her to healthcare.

Her firsthand experience not only helps her better diagnose and treat injuries, but also helps her fully empathize with what her patients are going through. “It means a lot to patients to know their providers have been through this, too—that we’ve been through the same struggles, understand what they’re going through, and that we’re here beside them to help solve it.”

DRAWN TO CHIROPRACTIC MEDICINE

Dr. Taylor’s interactions with physicians, physical therapists, and athletic trainers during her recovery sparked her own interest in medicine, leading her to study healthcare and eventually to fall in love with the field of chiropractic medicine.

As a Troy native, she knew she wanted to provide care in a rural area to give back to the same communities that supported her growing up. Dr. Taylor will be seeing chiropractic patients of all ages at the Elkland and Mansfield Laurel Health Centers; no referral needed. To make an appointment, call 570-662-2002.

WHAT TYPES OF PROBLEMS DOES A CHIROPRACTOR TREAT?

Chiropractors can treat a wide variety of back, neck, and joint problems, including:

  • Chronic pain (back, neck, muscle, joint, and nerve pain)
  • Sciatica and fibromyalgia
  • Headaches / migraines
  • Tingling, numb, or painful extremities
  • Inflammation
  • Range of motion, posture, and mobility issues
  • Carpal tunnel
  • Sports or repetitive motion injuries like golfer or tennis elbow

Treatment is customized based on each patient’s personal needs, health, and comfort level. Backed by real science and carefully tailored to each person, Laurel Health’s chiropractic services include a wide variety of therapies appropriate for patients of all ages, including traditional manipulation and non-manual adjustment using the Sigma Adjuster. The Sigma Adjuster is ideal for patients who are nervous about undergoing traditional manual adjustments or those who are unable to seek traditional chiropractic care like infants, seniors, and back surgery patients. This cutting-edge machine measures complex biofeedback and uses this data to precisely calculate and apply the pressure needed to non-invasively and painlessly realign skeletal joints.

From injury prevention and managing chronic pain to boosting performance and mobility, chiropractic care can improve your health and quality of life.

YES, IT’S SAFE TO COME TO THE CLINIC FOR CHIROPRACTIC CARE

The Laurel Health Centers understand that your health concerns weren’t put on pause during the pandemic and are working hard to get patients back to needed services safely. Staff and patient safety, high-quality care, and patient satisfaction are Laurel Health’s highest priorities.

Here are some of the many ways Laurel Health is committed to protecting you during your visit:

  • Call ahead scheduling to pre-screen all patient symptoms, exposure risks, and concerns
  • New pre-registration processes to eliminate onsite check-in
  • Thorough patient and staff screenings at each entrance
  • A parking lot waiting room model to maintain social distancing and reduce time spent in the clinic: patients wait in their car until their provider is ready then go directly to the exam room
  • Rigorous cleaning and disinfecting procedures are followed around-the-clock
  • All patients are masked before entering; patients are provided a mask if they don’t have one
  • All staff and patients are masked at all times
  • Telemedicine appointments offered as appropriate (virtual visits by phone and video)
  • Ongoing patient education and signage featuring clear instructions

In Tioga County, we are fortunate that our COVID-19 cases have remained manageable—thanks in large part to the community’s diligence in staying home, social distancing, and masking to slow the spread. As we begin to look ahead to the next phase of our COVID-19 response, Laurel Health encourages you to talk with your family health provider about when you should reschedule postponed health screenings, follow-up care, and treatments.

HOW TO BE PROACTIVE IN PROTECTING OUR SPINE AND JOINT HEALTH

“The biggest thing we can do to protect our spine and joint health is to stay active,” advises Dr. Taylor. “An object in motion stays in motion, so staying active and staying healthy through a good diet and exercise helps keep muscle fibers strong and joints protected.”

Another important part of protecting our back and neck is to use proper lifting techniques and good posture when sitting and sleeping to avoid putting stress or strain on our body. Want to learn more about Laurel Health’s proactive joint health strategies, cutting-edge chiropractic techniques, and whole-person approach to care? Visit laurelhc.org to learn more about how you can protect and improve your bone health.

Are you suffering from neck, back, muscle, or joint pain? The Laurel Health Centers have you covered! Dr. Taylor is accepting new patients of all ages; no referral needed. The Laurel Health Centers accept all major insurances, Medicare, Medicaid, and sliding fee programs.

To make an appointment with Dr. Sarah Taylor, call 570-662-2002 or visit laurelhc.org.
