Guest speaker Bio:
Dr. Sean Gallagher DC, DACRB, PES
Dr. Gallagher is the only chiropractor in the state of Pennsylvania, and one of a select few in the country, to have completed a post-graduate residency in sports injury & rehabilitation. The residency program at Palmer College of Chiropractic is the only one of its kind within a chiropractic college in the United States. Under the direction of former Olympian, Dave Juehring DC, DACRB, CSCS and Ranier Pavlicek DC, ATC, DACRB, CSCS, the residency provided Dr. Gallagher the opportunity to further the development of clinical skills in the realm of diagnosis, treatment and management of sport-related injuries. The residency provided Dr. Gallagher the opportunity to work closely with college and high school athletes, military personnel, triathletes, elite distance runners, as well as world-class powerlifters and strength athletes. Uncommon to the formal training of chiropractors, Dr. Gallagher also received training in post-surgical rehabilitation as the department worked closely with area orthopedic practices. To compliment his chiropractic training, Dr. Gallagher has extensive training in manual therapies and developmental stabilization methods influenced by the German and Czech rehabilitation schools.
It is Dr. Gallagher's passion to provide the highest quality in patient care by using an integrative approach of multiple disciplines - chiropractic, manual therapy, functional rehabilitation, strength training & exercise.
