'American Coyotes' Series

Traveling by Jeep, boat and foot, Tribune-Review investigative reporter Carl Prine and photojournalist Justin Merriman covered nearly 2,000 miles over two months along the border with Mexico to report on coyotes — the human traffickers who bring illegal immigrants into the United States. Most are Americans working for money and/or drugs. This series reports how their operations have a major impact on life for residents and the environment along the border — and beyond.

Dr. Jody Rumbaugh recently opened her new Chiropractic and Wellness office at 133 N. Second St. in Connellsville.

The location is convenient and easily accessible with parking in the front. An inviting reception and waiting area welcomes patients and those with appointments are seen on schedule and can expect to be warmly greeted by one of the office staff.

Rumbaugh, a lifelong Connellsville resident, graduated from Palmer College of Chiropractic in Davenport, Iowa, the founding College of Chiropractic. She practiced at Rumbaugh Chiropractic Health Center for more than 20 years before deciding to open at her new location.

Dr. Jody Rumbaugh Chiropractic & Wellness offers convenient office hours by appointment, 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays, 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Tuesdays, and 9 a.m. to noon Thursdays. Most insurances, including Blue Cross Blue Shield, UPMC and United Healthcare, are accepted, as well as many others. Those without insurance are also treated.

“Doctors of chiropractic are unique in their approach to joint problems. We utilize chiropractic adjustments to correct subluxations of the spine. The term ‘adjustment' refers to the specific force chiropractors apply to vertebrae that have abnormal movement patterns or fail to function normally. The objective of the chiropractic adjustment is to reduce the subluxation, which results in an increased range of motion, reduced nerve irritability, reduced muscle spasm, reduced pain and improved function,” said Rumbaugh.

“I wanted to create a relaxed atmosphere where wellness is emphasized through chiropractic and where other important lifestyle choices are encouraged. In addition to the chiropractic adjustment I may recommend any of the following services to facilitate healing: ice, heat, muscle stimulation, ultrasound, traction, exercise, lifestyle modifications, and/or nutritional support. I want to help patients improve their overall health. I believe many individuals are lacking good nutrition. We are living in a very fast paced world. We experience daily stress, poor sleep and often eat fast food, processed foods, sugar and caffeine.

“Nutrition plays an extremely important role in our overall health and well being. What we put into our bodies may strengthen or weaken our bodies. Healthy food, especially fruits and vegetables, provide essential nutrients for the proper function of our bodies,” Rumbaugh added.

A member of St. Rita's Church and the Falcon Foundation, she and her husband Ron Haggerty Jr., have two children.

New patients are welcome. Phone the office at 724-628-4334. For more information visit the website at www.drjodyrumbaugh.com.
