Tim Legath, DC is a 2014 graduate of National University of Health Sciences in Lombard, IL. Originally from Whitehall, PA, he attended Whitehall High School. From there he took his undergraduate studies to Saint Vincent College in Latrobe, PA where he graduated in 2010 with a B.A. degree in Biology.
Growing up as an avid sports fan, Dr. Legath has always had an interest in the sports medicine field. His sports background began when he was about 3 years old, the time when he laced up the ice hockey skate for the first time. Since then, he has played at all levels: travel, high school, juniors, and 4 years at the collegiate level. He also grew up playing little league levels of football and baseball. It was through his own personal injury playing ice hockey that got him interested in the field of chiropractic care. After experiencing a scary back injury, he came out feeling completely better after just 2 weeks of care from his family chiropractor. Since then, he has dedicated his career to helping others who need help.
During his academic time at NUHS, Dr. Legath became exposed to many different treatment techniques. His most influential technique became Active Release Technique, in which he is a full body certified provider. He has also been certified in the McKenzie Method of Diagnosis Parts A and B. Other techniques he is well versed in are Motion Palpation and Manipulation, Cox Flexion-Distraction Technique, Kinesio Tape, Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Manipulation, Functional Rehabilitation, and Selective Functional Movement Assessment. During his career as a chiropractor, Dr. Legath has treated athletes from all levels: little league, high school, collegiate, professional and Olympians. A combination of these techniques are used to reach the primary goal: to get each patient back to optimum health and increase overall performance of activities.
Outside of the office, Dr. Legath enjoys playing ice hockey, exercising, and enjoying the greater Philadelphia area with his wife.
