Whole Body Wellness
Welcome to Lang Chiropractic, home to your Abington chiropractor, Dr. Janet Lang. At our wellness center, our natural treatments go beyond pain relief and injury recovery. Our goal is to help every patient achieve whole body health through comprehensive wellness services, including chiropractic care, massage therapy, physiotherapy, , Pilates and personal training.
Wellness Center Offers Chiropractic Care, Massage Therapy, and Rehabilitation Therapy
If you are struggling with chronic back and neck pain, it's natural to be frustrated with medical treatments. Traditional medical care focuses on relieving the symptoms of pain rather than correcting the underlying cause. While prescription painkillers can provide temporary relief, drugs cannot correct the musculoskeletal misalignment that causes neck and back pain. Gentle, hands-on chiropractic adjustments can alignment to the body and reduce the risk of future injury.
Abington pain patients choose our wellness center because of our patient-proven treatments. We have had stunning success helping patients manage a number of conditions, including whiplash, scoliosis, chronic headaches and herniated discs. In all of these cases, Dr. Lang used natural, non-invasive treatments to relieve pain and help injuries heal.
Our chiropractor believes in a comprehensive approach to wellness. Our treatments naturally complement one another, helping to build a strong, healthy spine and body. For example, massage treatments promotes internal healing by bringing fresh, oxygenated blood to the muscles and soft tissues. Massage can also help restore motion and flexibility to stiff or sore body parts. Physiotherapy exercises recondition the body following an injury, helping it regain a full range of movement.
Health is more than just the absence of pain or injury. Even if you no longer struggle with chronic pain or have recovered from an injury, our wellness services can help you optimize your health and reduce your risk for future injury and illness. We offer Personal Training and Physical Rehab, Yoga, and Pilates to help patients build positive body awareness, balance and core strength. By teaching balance and control of the body through physical exercise, many patients find that these lessons provide guidance in all aspects of their lives.
Balanced nutrition is essential to your health. But, even if you think you are eating right, there's a good chance you are still missing out on many of the nutrients your body needs to truly thrive. Our chiropractor provides metabolic analysis testing to precisely determine the nutrients your body needs on a cellular level. We also provide Bioelectrical Impedance Analysis to provide a clinically accurate assessment of body composition. We provide weight loss counseling through proper diet and prescribed exercise, not "fad" diets. We also offer herbal remedies and dietary supplements. The goal of our nutritional counseling is to help every patient build a healthy relationship with his or her body through the combination of exercise and healthy diet.
Dr. Lang and our entire wellness team are excited to be your partner on your wellness journey. Through relief care, corrective care and long-term wellness care, we can help you achieve better health.
Our Abington wellness center serves the Glenside, Meadowbrook, Roslyn and the greater Eastern Montgomery County region. Schedule your appointment today by calling (215) 884-9600!
Good Health Starts with the Feet!
For 70 years, Foot Levelers has been making custom orthotics that are clinically proven to help reduce pain and improve whole body wellness by balancing the body from the ground up. Your feet are your foundation. And structural imbalances in your feet can lead to issues throughout the body like plastic deformation, overpronation, plantar fasciitis, low back pain, knee pain, hip pain, sciatica, or achilles tendinitis.
A foot scan or impression shows how imbalances in the feet lead to problems throughout your body. The orthotics are then made off your foot scan or impression.
Only Foot Levelers custom orthotics support all 3 arches of the foot. Your arches give the foot strength to support the body in a balanced fashion. Balancing your foundation can help relieve pain and avoid future issues. Ask us about getting scanned or download Foot Levelers Patient Catalog for more information.
The Foot/Spine Connection
All parts of your body are linked together. And your feet are the foundation!
Even though all your body parts are connected and affect one another, your feet are what Foot Levelers calls, the "foundation". Your entire body is supported and balanced by your feet. Therefore, if your feet are pronated (as 99% of all people's feet are), your body will suffer – starting with either the knee, hip, or back.
When something goes wrong with one of our parts and we experience pain, traditional medical doctors attempt to treat patients using prescriptions or surgery. This, in our opinion, is a very narrow view of solutions and care.
We are mindful of the whole body – specifically the musculoskeletal system. As we meet with our patients, we observe data through 3D scans and x-rays – pinpointing the root cause of the problem in order to apply appropriate treatment that typically begins with Foot Levelers Custom Orthotics. Why? Because our feet are the "foundation" of the body and Foot Levelers has an excellent reputation for making the best custom orthotics on the planet.
Since 99% of all people have foot pronation (often causing imbalances and stresses in the knees, which in turn puts stress on the hip, back, and even our neck), custom orthotics are a vital solution to whole body health. This is the bio kinetic chain in action. When our feet are stabilized and in balance, the rest of the kinetic chain will function as it should – pain free! But when our feet are pronated and de-stabilized, the rest of the kinetic chain will be negatively impacted – typically resulting in pain and loss of function.

Multiple Activities? Multiple Orthotics.
If you have more than one pair of shoes and take part in multiple activities, you should seriously consider getting a pair of orthotics for each activity. There are orthotics for sports, work, and leisure. There are even orthotics custom made for children.
