By restoring and maintaining healthy functioning of your nervous system using chiropractic techniques, Dr. Sean Mandel treats a wide variety of musculoskeletal disorders causing pain, inflammation, debilitating stiffness and systemic disease. Unlike traditional medical therapy involving medication to temporarily relieve symptoms, chiropractic modalities address the source of pain and illness by focusing on eliminating dysfunction within the nervous system.

Chiropractic Treatments Available to the Families of the Malvern, Exton, Frazer, Downingtown, and West Chester, PA Communities
Spinal decompression for back and neck pain relief involves our chiropractor securing patients to a special table and moving the table in ways to alleviate pressure within the spine. The biomechanics of the table and harness facilitate unloading of pressure irritating the vertebrae, disc and nerves. In addition to reporting quick pain relief from the gentle stretching of lower back muscles and vertebrae, spinal decompression patients often find the treatment so relaxing they actually doze during the procedure.
Spinal decompression also promotes the flow of oxygenated blood and fresh nutrients to discs and vertebrae that encourage healing of diseases tissues. Structural support provided by the spine for good posture practices is also improved which decreases the risk of patients suffering future back injuries and may also lessen symptoms of some degenerative disorders.
Physical Therapy Modalities
Integrating physical therapy techniques into individualized treatment plans is one of the many services offered by our Malvern chiropractor Dr. Mandel. Incorporating therapeutic exercises with one or more chiropractic treatments meant to relieve painful spine, muscle and ligament conditions supports healing and improve overall physical wellness.
Deep tissue massage therapy performed by our massage therapists at Sharp Chiropractic targets both upper and deep muscle tissues to stimulate healing, enhance relaxation and alleviate pain. Deep tissue massage also helps regulate hormonal levels to produce optimal feelings of well-being and overall health by enhancing blood circulation and glandular functioning. Patients treated with massage therapy may also benefit from its ability to reduce hypertension, anxiety and depression, as massage techniques trigger immediate release of serotonin and oxytocin, two hormones responsible for mood elevation and relaxation.
Personal Injury/Work Injury/Auto Accident Injury
When misalignment of the spine due to personal, automobile or work injuries results in chronic pain and stiffness in the back, neck, shoulders and legs, our chiropractor, Dr. Mandel recommends manipulation and adjustment techniques to relieve pain and inflammation without resorting to medications or surgery. Spinal subluxation occurs when vertebrae are displaced, resulting in abnormal interdiscal pressure and chronic pain. Physiological and biomechanical disturbances of soft tissues suffering from spinal subluxation are usually responsible for back pain, decreased range of motion, headaches, sciatica, carpal tunnel syndrome and neck pain.
Neuropathies are conditions affecting the peripheral nerves that cause pain, numbness, weakness and burning sensations in the extremities. Chiropractic treatments help relieve distressing symptoms of various acquired or hereditary neuropathies by reducing swelling and inflammation, improving circulation to arms and legs and increasing range of motion. Our chiropractor, Dr. Mandel will develop personalized physical therapy programs to address specific health issues suffered by people with neuropathy.
Electric Muscle Stimulation
EMS is a noninvasive, chiropractic method that facilitates the body's natural ability to heal itself for relief from muscle spasms, soft tissue injuries and chronic pain. Also called electromyostimulation, EMS introduces electric impulses into muscles to elicit contractions that rehabilitate and strengthen muscles affected by painful strains or disorders. In addition, our chiropractor, Dr. Mandel frequently uses EMS on people who regularly engage in sports and weight training. Advantages to EMS as a preventative for sports injuries include stimulation of nutrient-rich blood to muscles, toning of muscles by innervation and reducing the intensity of muscle spasms.
Because autoimmune disorders and inflammatory conditions are frequently worsened by poor dietary choices, Dr. Mandel, offers nutritional counseling for patients suffering disorders exacerbated by poor nutritional choices. For example, individuals with osteoarthritis or rheumatoid arthritis may not realize that joint inflammation increases when they consume pro-inflammatory foods such as red meat, pork or dairy products that are not low-fat or fat-free.
