Meet the Doctors

Doctors Mike and Karen both graduated from Palmer Chiropractic College in 1991.  They have owned Strawbridge Family Chiropractic since 1992. 

Before becoming a chiropractor, Dr. Karen was a pediatric nurse at Johns Hopkins Hospital in Baltimore, MD.  After a few years of caring for sick babies, she wanted a change to a wellness approach to health, so she became a chiropractor and never looked back.  Now she can still take care of babies that she loves, get them well, and keep them well and their families!  Dr. Karen is certified in the Webster Breech Technique and is a fellow of the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association. 

After a hockey injury, Dr. Mike first ended up in a chiropractor's office as a patient.  Amazed when the chiropractic care not only corrected the pinched nerve in his neck but also cured his lifelong allergies and sinus problems, he wanted to learn more, and Chiropractic soon became his calling.  Dr. Mike enjoys taking care of many patients and conditions in their family practice.  He also loves to teach that health comes from within and how to maximize your healing and health potential by combining chiropractic care with a holistic approach to a healthy lifestyle.

Doctors Mike and Karen use various adjusting techniques, from the traditional hands-on Palmer method to low force approaches using the Arthrostim adjusting instrument and state-of-the-art energetic healing devices such as the Tennant Biomodulator.  Together, Doctors Karen and Mike have made it their mission to help as many people as possible, from those scared and in pain to elite athletes, from expecting moms and children to mature folks and anyone who wants to optimize their God-given health potential.
