Dr. David Ballenger of Ballenger Chiropractic in Timonium Maryland

David Ballenger, D.C.

Dr. Ballenger has always understood the value of having a healthy body by living an active lifestyle throughout his entire life, from growing up on a farm, participating in NCAA athletics, Army R.O.T.C, and then active duty military. After his time in the ARMY, Dr. Ballenger still felt a calling to serve.

Not originally a fan of doctor visits himself, he was skeptical about a career in healthcare. However, after injuring his neck weight lifting, he began to experience the benefits of chiropractic. He had a chiropractor examine and adjust his neck and felt the relief instantly. He continued a series of treatments for his entire spine to help adjust injuries to his body that he hadn’t even known about. After personally experiencing the benefits, Dr. Ballenger knew that he wanted to spend his life helping others get the same relief and restore the health of their bodies through chiropractic.

With over 15 years of experience, Dr. Ballenger understands the importance of promoting the overall health and well-being of his patients. He uses the “whole person approach” by integrating the best hands-on-techniques, state of the art physiotherapy procedures and providing the most progressive and natural vitamin and mineral supplements on the market today. Dr. Ballenger is committed to helping his patients accelerate or maintain their journeys to good health.

Dr. Jessica Parkman

Dr. Jessica Parkman of Ballenger Chiropractic in Timonium Maryland

Jessica Parkman, D.C.

Dr. Parkman knows firsthand what it takes to “get back in the game”. She participated in several sports growing up in small town Indiana, and even participated as an NCAA cross country runner. The one thing keeping her going through various injuries and helped her prevent further injury was chiropractic care and rehabilitation. Even though she knew the benefits of chiropractic care firsthand, she did not decide Chiropractic was her career choice until a family member had several failed back surgeries. She wanted to prevent this from happening to anyone else. Dr. Parkman understands how important it is to try every conservative treatment option first before surgery should be the answer.

She is committed to finding a solution to your musculoskeletal needs, not just a quick temporary fix. She uses a variety of conservative techniques from manual adjusting, activator technique, PT modalities, rehabilitation and nutritional supplementation to help better suit her patients’ needs. When you see Dr. Parkman, not only will you get an individualized treatment plan, you will experience how she genuinely cares about every single one of her patients and their health goals.
