Dr. Irene Londer has been committed to helping her patients live healthier lives for 25 years. Her passion for helping people break free of pain & return to optimal function and performance at work and home, started at an early age. Volunteering at Coney Island Hospital in NY, local nursing homes and pain management practices triggered her interest in working on the human body to restore health utilizing natural holistic therapies. After graduating from Temple University, she went on to Pennsylvania Chiropractic College, graduating Cum Laude in 1995. Dr. Londer is an active member of the Pennsylvania Chiropractic Association & American Chiropractic Association and has served communities in South Philadelphia, King of Prussia and Devon Pa. Dr. Londer lives in Collegeville, Pa with her husband and children. My philosophy of care is based on the belief that my patient's needs and goals for health is of the utmost importance. Listening to their healthcare concerns is important in working as a team to provide the optimal acute care treatment protocol and then continued wellness care plans. By utilizing specialty techniques focusing on soft tissue and gentle manipulation of the spine, I strive to restore health and optimal function in the quickest and safest way possible. I promise to guide and educate my patients on ways to lead a healthy lifestyle while respecting the body's natural healing abilities. While the treatment at our office is priority to reduce restriction in motion, spinal misalignments and postural asymmetry, maintaining the progress requires home instruction on not only functional daily stretches and strengthening exercises but proper nutritional habits as well. Providing our patients with the tools to live their lives without interference is what helps us strive to provide our community with the best care. Specialty technique include, Myofascial Release Therapy (aka Nimmo Receptor Tonus Technique). This technique gives my patients an advantage to a treatment protocol that yields, quicker, more effective, longer lasting results and faster transition to a higher level of activity and an approach to wellness that is integrative, focusing on structural integrity, symmetry and balance. Technique is performed by manually scanning the muscles to detect the presence of noxious generative points similar to myofascial trigger points which cause improper muscle contraction and pain. The presence of these trigger points is the source of pain which can refer pain to other sites in the body causing structural adaptation and imbalance. The treatment consists of detection of these noxious points and application of digital pressure 10 to 12 seconds with a quick release. This technique requires the doctor of chiropractic to be extremely perceptive to the patient's muscle tonus, a high degree of sensory and palpatory acuity to perform this technique. I have been utilizing this technique for over 20 years. Thompson Drop technique utilizes a uniquely designed chiropractic adjusting table also known as "Segmental Drop Table" to enhance the motion force imparted towards the specific region of the spine by the doctor of chiropractic. The "Segmental Drop System" takes advantage of the spine's inherent design of the joints in-order to move the spinal segment in the direction that will improve the motion of the segment with the one above and below. It's a technique that allows for a gentle yet safe and effective method to adjust the segments of the spine. This technique can be utilized for all age groups and levels of dysfunction.
