When Dr. Jason Weigner received his Doctorate from Life University over 20 years ago, he had a
clear mission in mind - to create a life-changing practice for patients who want to…
- Increase the quality and length of their life
- Get out of pain
- Avoid drugs
- And avoid surgery
and to do it by focusing on the cause of the problem…not just the symptoms.
Dr. Weigner is a National Board Certified Chiropractor, a Certified Clinical Electromyographer, a Certified Decompression Practitioner, and Certified with a specialized study in Physiological Therapeutics. Weigner has extensive post education in the rehabilitation of spinal and extremity injuries and specializes in Neuropathies, Fibromyalgia, and Weight Loss.
Over 20 years later, Dr. Jason’s mission has not changed. Weigner and his team of multi-specialized doctors and practitioners work together in their approach to resolve patients’ healthcare needs, injuries and problems in a more convenient manner resulting in patients receiving combined experience and the fastest results.
One of the most challenging issues for most Americans today is weight. According to the CDC, overweight and obesity may raise the risk of illness from high blood pressure, high blood cholesterol, heart disease, stroke, diabetes, certain types of cancer, arthritis, and breathing problems. As weight increases, so does the prevalence of health risks.
Dr. Weigner shared, “I can’t count the number of times I’ve found that a patient's quality of life was adversely affected by excess weight or in many cases the culprit of the health issue.” In addition to chiropractic, medical, and regenerative medicine, Discover Optimal Healthcare has a team approach to weight loss. Nurse practitioner, Laura Malekina, graduated with her master's degree from George Washington University. She has worked in many healthcare settings from urgent care for MLH to internal medicine at the University of Pennsylvania health system seeing many orthopedic conditions. Along with Dr. Jason, Laura spearheads the weight loss program.
The practice is using HCG (human chorionic gonadotropin) for weight loss with positive results. But in 2021, the FDA approved an even more effective treatment using semaglutide. This once-weekly injection is designed for chronic weight management in adults with obesity or overweight with weight-related conditions (such as high blood pressure, type 2 diabetes, or high cholesterol), for use in addition to a reduced calorie diet and increased physical activity. The injection works by mimicking a hormone called glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) that targets areas of the brain that regulate appetite and food intake.
Malekina points out that losing 5% to 10% of body weight has been associated with a reduced risk of cardiovascular disease in adult patients with obesity or overweight. “We’ve seen some very positive results with this new treatment making a noticeable impact on the quality of life of our patients. “ adds Malenkina.
Discover Optimal Healthcare has evolved over the years, incorporating the latest in
regenerative medicine concepts. “Our practice is predicated on discovering the source of the problem. We don’t try to mask your pain or attempt to manage it for you. Instead, we harness and engage your body’s natural ability to renew itself whenever possible, providing improved function.” according to Dr. Jason.
Weigner points out that his practice operates more like a family practice offering a complete resource for care…chiropractic, medical, regenerative, weight loss and even more recently the addition of vein mapping.
Vein mapping (Arterial and venous mapping), which is a noninvasive ultrasound test that takes pictures of your arteries and veins (blood vessels). This test creates a “map” of your blood vessels that can be used to help better guide some medical procedures or to check for certain health conditions including potential blood clots.
