Dr. Karen Maley graduated from King’s College and received her Doctor of Chiropractic, with honors, from New York Chiropractic College. She has been serving patients in the Philadelphia suburbs for 5 years. As a former competitive dancer, she worked through various injuries, which ultimately sparked her inspiration for chiropractic. She did not want to mask the symptoms of her pain, rather find the root cause.
Dr. Karen believes that in order to achieve the best results it is essential to understand each patient and their goals and tailor their care accordingly. A goal for one patient may be picking up their child without pain, whereas a goal of an elite athlete patient may be lifting another 5 pounds to make a new personal record. She enjoys treating athletes, including CrossFit athletes. In fact, she joined a CrossFit gym in 2016 and quickly grew a passion for the sport. Her fitness journey includes competitive dance, running, weight training, and CrossFit. As an athlete, she understands how faulty movement patterns can result in pain and injury.
Some of Dr. Karen’s specialties include myofascial release, trigger point therapy, Kinesio Taping, and PNF stretching to help create mobility in the soft tissues in order to help establish optimal movement of the joints. She is also a certified RockTape provider. RockTape provides support, decreases pain, and reduces swelling and bruising. She loves utilizing RockTape to aid in proper posture, which helps prevent the cascade of negative effects bad posture can have on the body, from headaches to neck and upper back pain.
Dr. Karen is excited to utilize her skills and the cutting-edge amenities LifeClinic has to offer to benefit patients to Restore, Maintain, and Optimize their health and wellness.
