Chiropractic Services

Suffering from back, neck, muscle, or joint pain? The Laurel Health Centers have you covered! We believe in safe, expert chiropractic care for all. In addition to the back and neck strain caused by prolonged sitting in office jobs, rural communities like ours also have many jobs involving physical labor in factories, construction, farms, landscaping, and auto body shops carrying a greater risk for back and joint injuries. Chiropractic care plays a key role in pain management and the rehabilitation of those injuries, but cost is often a barrier to care, as many private chiropractors cannot accept a wide selection of insurances. The Laurel Health Centers seek to remove cost barriers by offering high-quality chiropractic care to all patients, regardless of their ability to pay.

As federally qualified health centers, we accept all major commercial insurances as well as Medical Assistance, Medicare, and sliding fee programs for uninsured and underinsured patients. Our expert chiropractors Sarah Taylor, DC and Steven Heffner, DC work in tandem with our primary care, sports medicine, and rehabilitation teams to safely treat and improve pain, inflammation, mobility, posture, and range of motion. 


The Laurel Health Centers provide comprehensive chiropractic care to patients of all ages at our Laurel Health & Wellness Center, 40 W Wellsboro St. in Mansfield, and Elkland Laurel Health Center, 103 Forestview Drive in Elkland.  


No referral is needed. To make an appointment, call 570-662-1974 (Mansfield) or 814-258-5117 (Elkland). 

Dr. Sarah Taylor, Chiropractor

Dr. Sarah Taylor is a Troy native and is passionate about giving back to and practicing in the same rural communities that supported her growing up. She credits her own battle with injuries as a young athlete for drawing her to healthcare, knowing firsthand what it's like to rehabilitate and prevent future reinjury. She specializes in managing chronic pain, maintaining joint health, and improving mobility.

She earned her Bachelor of Science in kinesiology from Penn State University in State College, PA and her Doctor of Chiropractic degree (DC) from New York Chiropractic College in Seneca Falls, NY.
