Upper Perkiomen Valley residents have a new option for seeking chiropractic care after Dr. Craig Hall opened The Hall Family Chiropractic Center in Pennsburg last month.
Dr. Craig Hall opened The Hall Family Chiropractic Center in Pennsburg last month. Above he is seen making an adjustment to his son Connor.
Situated in the same building as the new Faraday’s Natural Food Shop and Healthy Turn Around at 570 Main St., Hall described his neighboring businesses as presenting the perfect arrangement to help his clients achieve holistic health.
Dr. Hall is not a rookie in the chiropractic field. In 2005, he opened a practice in New Britain that grew exponentially over the last six years. As the practice expanded, Hall said he knew that he wanted to start looking for a “smaller town feel.”
He chose Pennsburg because he was familiar with the area from recreational activities and other connections. He added, “There weren’t many chiropractors around, and there were a lot of people that needed my help.”
Hall did not initially plan on becoming a doctor. He worked in carpentry for 10 years before his experience visiting a chiropractor led him to realize how crucial such care can be. “My own experience helps me to relate to my clients,” he said.
He studied chiropractics at Life University in Marietta, Ga.
In addition to making spinal adjustments, Hall also works with patients to address muscular imbalances, remove interferences along the spine to improve function and “restore the body to its natural state of optimal health.” Services available include spinal and posturing screenings, nutritional counseling, rehabilitation and personal training.
Chiropractics has many benefits that may not seem obvious at first, according to Hall. For example, he said one patient came in for a spinal adjustment, but the treatment also contributed to the termination of a life-long skin disease.
He noted that spinal adjustments also have decreased allergy symptoms and other seemingly unrelated health issues.
The center is designed to be family-friendly, Hall said. “We are here for all ages. The typical patient is a middle-age female, but we adjust children [as well].”
Watching his business grow first in New Britain and now in Pennsburg “has been great,” he said. “Seeing the difference in people’s lives is what it’s all about.”
His expectations for 2012 include seeing more clients from the area and helping “a lot of people feel better.”
Center hours are 9 a.m.-noon and 2 p.m.-6 p.m. on Tuesdays and Thursdays, and 9 a.m.-noon on Saturdays. For additional information, visit www.hallfamchiro.com or call the office at 267-923-5333.
