Dr. Marlaina Carson
Legacy Wellness & Chiropractic is owned by Dr. Marlaina Carson. She is an alumna of the renowned Palmer College of Chiropractic in Davenport, Iowa who graduated Magna Cum Laude in 2014. She also has a bachelor's degree in Biopsychology with honors from Messiah College in Mechanicsburg, Pennsylvania. Today, she is excited to serve the community of Harrisburg, and the surrounding areas, with the techniques she learned at the birthplace of chiropractic. Dr. Carson also volunteers her time to serve on the Pennsylvania Chiropractic Association's Membership Committee.
Originally from Williamsport, Pennsylvania, Dr. Carson recently relocated to Harrisburg to serve the community at Legacy Wellness & Chiropractic. One of her core beliefs is that chiropractic is more about walking through life with your patients, rather than just relieving symptoms. She finds great joy in seeing results and seeing a patient's improvement increase with every visit. Hearing things like, "I'm able to take walks with my grandbabies again!" , and "My golf swing has surprisingly improved!" fuels Dr. Carson's passion for impacting lives through chiropractic.
Many people have gotten used to covering the symptoms of pain instead of actually looking into correcting the underlying issue. In our office, overall wellness and an optimal nervous system is the focus. It is all about setting a routine and seeing your chiropractor regularly. In doing so, you will be able to live life how it's supposed to be - without aches and pains! When you see the body-mind connection, that's when wellness flourishes.
"My job is not to only get you better, it is to allow your body to fix itself." - Dr. Carson
