If you're in the Fishtown area on a hot day and looking for an ice-cold treat, our Richmond personal injury lawyers highly recommend a stop at Weckerly's ice cream. This shop offers unique French-style ice cream made with all kinds of fresh ingredients. There are other great ice cream places nearby, but this one stands out as one of our favorites not just in Philly, but anywhere. Here are some reasons why we think Weckerly's stands out from the pack as one of the East Coast's best ice cream shops:

Ice Cream Making Process

Weckerly's makes fresh ice cream using a variety of fruit, herbs, eggs, and dairy. All of their ingredients are sourced by nearby farms. Their products are made using a French method which is hundreds of years old. They use organic milk from Camphill Village Dairy, which is 36 miles from the Weckerly's Creamery.


Weckerly's has their own creamery where they make their authentically homemade ice creams. Little known fact - many ice cream shops, even though that call themselves "homemade",  actually use premade mixes to create their flavors. But Weckerly's uses traditional techniques and fresh ingredients to make theirs. The magic happens at their own 350-square-foot dairy plant. Not only is the ice cream made here, but they also pasteurize the milk, cream, eggs, and sugars that they use in every recipe.


Weckerly's offers a diverse selection of both seasonal and permanent ice cream flavors. Everything is freshly made with high-quality ingredients, and you can truly taste the difference. They've also become well-known for their gourmet ice cream sandwiches.

Some of the flavors you might find at Weckerly's Ice Cream include:

And here are some of our favorite ice cream sandwich options at Weckerly's:

While New York City and Chicago may be more globally famous for their pizza, anyone who's spent significant time in Philadelphia knows that City of Brotherly Love has more than its share of excellent pizzerias. The diverse restaurant scene in this city extends to the pizza scene, with everything from classic Sicilian pies to pizzas with fancy toppings like beef brisket and coleslaw. Our Richmond personal injury lawyers generally gravitate more towards the classic pizzas, and in our opinion, no one does it better than Tacconelli's. This historic pizza place is located in Port Richmond and has gained the reputation as one of the best pizza places not just in Philly, but in this entire region.


The story of Tacconelli's begins 100 years ago when Giovanni Tacconelli immigrated to Philadelphia from Italy. Giovanni spent his first several years in the United States as a laborer before he decided to return to his roots and do what he'd done while living in Italy - baking bread. He did so using "the best and only way" - in a brick oven. Giovanni and a few friends worked to build a 20 by 20-foot brick oven and the bread-baking business was born. Giovanni did well with this business for a couple of decades, but the business suffered when World War II began and all of his sons were drafted. This led to the bakery shutting down, as Giovanni could not manage it on his own.

However, this bakery was only the beginning for the Tacconelli family. In 1946, after the war had ended, Giovanni decided to use his brick oven to bake tomato pies. His mother had taught him how to do this back in Italy, and that tradition has been upheld into the 21st Century. Made with fresh-made dough, just a bit of cheese and plenty of sauce, Tacconelli's has been serving up these authentic Italian tomato pies for over 70 years.

The restaurant had to replace the original brick oven in 1992, which turned out to be a 7-month renovation project. Today, the Tacconelli family is in its 5th generation and still baking tomato pies the way Giovanni did.

Ordering at Tacconelli's

Tacconelli's has a bit of an unorthodox way of ordering - you need to call ahead and reserve your dough. This isn't always necessary, but it's better to be safe, as this is definitely one of the most popular pizzerias in the city. According to the website, the best time to call is between Wednesday and Sunday after 10 a.m. Call and reserve a pie and feel free to bring beer or wine, as the restaurant is also a BYOB.

Tacconelli's offers four types of pies:

Toppings offered here include:

Stretching from the Betsy Ross Bridge to Linden Ave, the Delaware River Waterfront's Greenway project connects various parks, trails, and boat launches along one of the most scenic areas of Philadelphia. The abundance of natural areas is one of our favorite aspects of Philadelphia, and this project is a great example of people coming together to preserve the city's natural beauty. Our Richmond personal injury lawyers are big fans of the following stops along the Greenway:

Port Richmond Trail and Delaware Ave Extension

This trail runs for 2.2 miles in an offroad section along Delaware Ave., from Allegheny Ave. to Orthodox St. It's in a great location which allows residents of both Port Richmond and Bridesburg to enjoy the trail and extension. We love coming here for a jog or bike ride on a nice day. This section also connects Pulaski Park to the future riverfront park in Bridesburg, which is currently in the design stage.

Additionally, Phase II of this extension is currently in design and scheduled for construction in 2020. As Delaware Ave. is updated, an off-road path will be constructed along the riverside. This extension will connect the riverfront park in Bridesburg to the Frankford Boat Launch.

Frankford Boat Launch

At the Frankford Boat Launch, both motorized and non-motorized watercraft owners can drop in here and enjoy fishing with beautiful views of nature, the bridge, and the city of Philadelphia. The boat launch doubles as a trailhead park for the K&T Trail.

K&T Trail

The K&T Trail is a 1.15-mile trail beginning at the Frankford Boat Launch and connecting to Lardner's Point Park through a 12-foot-wide multi-use trail, which ends at Magee Ave. This area once looked much different, with a grey post-industrial feel. Today, it's a beautiful green space which acts as a pollinator corridor on the Delaware River. This trail has 14 brand new benches and seven new trash receptacles. One of our favorite parts of the K&T Trail is the former railroad bridge which now acts as a 50-foot-long multi-use trail running overtop of the Wissinoming Creek.

Phase II of the K&T Trail is slated to begin construction in 2019. This project will extend the current K&T  Trail from Magee Ave. north to Princeton Ave., which will connect Lardner's Point Park to the Tacony Boat Launch.

Lardner's Point Park

Lardner's Point is a beautiful 4.5-acre riverfront park just south of the Tacony-Palmyra Bridge. This park connects directly to the K&T Trail. Enjoy river views, fishing, picnicking, and meadow trails in this picturesque slice of nature in the River Wards.

The Delaware River is full of parks and piers where you can take in beautiful views of the river, its bridges, and the Philadelphia skyline. Our Richmond personal injury lawyers love spending time in the outdoors at these numerous green spaces during the warmer months of the year. In Port Richmond, one of our favorite riverfront parks is General Pulaski Park. This is a great place to fish, have a picnic, or take the dog for some outdoor playtime. Here are some of the reasons why we love General Pulaski Park:


If you visit General Pulaski Park during the spring, summer, or early fall, there is a decent chance you'll spot some anglers casting fishing lines into the waters of the Delaware River just off of the pier. This is a neighborhood hotspot for reeling in catfish. This is always a great way to relax on a nice summer day, especially as a bonding experience for families. Bring a picnic basket and take a break to enjoy a good meal before returning to try your hand at reeling in some Delaware River fish.


During weekends in the summer, you're also likely to see several families enjoying picnics at General Pulaski Park. This is one of our favorite ways to spend summer days together as a family. It's got a true neighborhood feel, as neighbors socialize together while taking in views of the beautiful Delaware River.

Revitalization of General Pulaski Park

General Pulaski Park is named after a Polish military commander and hero of the Revolutionary War. Located on a half-acre of green space between two industrial sites at the intersection of Richmond Street and Allegheny Avenue, this park was once forgotten because of the fact that it's largely obstructed by an I-95 overpass. But in the mid-2000s, a non-profit conservation group called Pro Arte Associates began a revitalization project with assistance from other organizations, such as the Friends of Pulaski Park, the Pennsylvania Horticultural Society, and the Polish Business Association.

The revitalization project plans to sink the highway, get rid of nearby parking lots, and revitalize Pulaski Park and the rest of Port Richmond's waterfront.

If you're big into comic books, superheroes, video games, or any other aspect of geek culture, we highly recommend a visit to Amalgam Comics & Coffeehouse in Kensington. This shop has a great selection of merchandise and regularly hosts public events where community members can come together and bond over a mutual appreciation for different comics, games, books, and more. Our Kensington personal injury lawyers think this is one of the most positive businesses in the community.


Amalgam Comics and Coffeehouse combines classic comics, video games, action figures, and other pieces of geek culture with delicious coffee in the heart of Kensington. Owner Ariell Johnson first thought of Amalgam in 2003 while she was still a student at Temple University. In December 2015, the comic and coffeehouse opened its doors to the public. Since then, the business has gotten attention in national media for their commitment to inclusion and the fact that this is the first black woman-owned comic book store on the East Coast.


While the huge comic book collection certainly is impressive, that's not all that this comic/coffee hybrid shop has to offer. You can find a huge range of interesting reading materials, toys, video games, and more:

And of course, we highly recommend enjoying a tasty coffee or espresso and baked good during your shopping trip to Amalgam. Their featured blend is Philly Fair Trade Roasters.


Amalgam regularly hosts a variety of fun events where geeks can get together and bond over their common interests. Here are some of the regular events you have to choose from:

Nerdy by Nature

This 21+ event is held every First Friday at 8:30 p.m. There's a $5 cover and it is a BYOB open-mic event. Come to enjoy some stand-up comedy, music, or whatever other show the performers of the night decide to put on for the crowd.

Amalgam Monthly Book Club

Each month, Amalgam chooses a book for their book club meetings, held on the first Wednesday of the month. We think this is a great way to make new friends with common interests, as you enjoy some delicious coffee while offering your interpretations of the reading.

Adventurer's League Philadelphia D&D Meetup

No shop dedicated to nerd culture would be complete without a regular Dungeons and Dragons meetup. Held every Sunday, Amalgam's meetups are free and open to players of all skill levels.

Simone & the Sheroes Comic Book Club

This book club is specifically catered to girls from ages 6-14 who love comic books and superheroes. Held every first Saturday with a $5 registration fee.

Every spring, the Kensington Kinetic Sculpture Derby and Arts Festival comes to the Kensington neighborhood. This day-long celebration features a race of human-powered floats, along with a street festival full of more than 100 local artists and vendors selling and displaying their arts and crafts. Of course, there are plenty of food and beverage trucks around too, where you can enjoy some tasty food and a cold drink. Our Kensington personal injury lawyers think this is one of Philadelphia's most interesting festivals and we try to make it here each year to watch the derby and enjoy the spirit of the street festival. Here are some of our favorite aspects of the Kensington Kinetic Sculpture Derby and Arts Festival.

About the Kinetic Sculpture Derby

The Kinetic Sculpture Derby is the highlight of this event, as dozens of mobile human-powered sculptures compete in a race to finish a three-mile urban obstacle course running throughout Kensington and Fishtown. At the conclusion, the sculptures slide into a mud pit.

All of the following features and methods are banned in this derby:

Participants are required to come up with human-generated methods to keep their vehicles moving at a pace of at least three miles per hour. At the end of the race, the judges will hand out over a dozen awards, such as the People's Choice Award, Award for Best/Worst Pun, Award for Best Costuming, Award for Best 10+ Person Team, and more.

Food Trucks

The Kinetic Sculpture Derby and Arts Festival has plenty of food truck options, and there is surely something to appease people of all tastes and dietary preferences here. Food trucks from the 2018 festival included:

Arts Vendors

If you're looking to pick up some unique arts and crafts to decorate your home or as a gift for a friend or loved one, you'll have plenty to choose from at the KSDAF. Here are some of the vendors that participated in the 2018 festival:

Philadelphia has always had a thriving arts scene, and this scene has led to the creation of many programs and spaces designed to help create a new generation of artists in the city's communities. our Kensington personal injury lawyers think these spaces have incredibly positive effects on our communities. The Portside Arts Center is one of our favorite spaces in the Kensington area. This facility opened in January 2008 after Kim Creighton enlisted the help of friends and community volunteers to renovate a 6,000 square-foot warehouse. Today, that warehouse is home to four visual arts classrooms and an art gallery. Here are some of the programs and events hosted by the Portside Arts Center:


Portside Arts Center runs programs that cater to participants of all ages.

Adult Programs

The center currently offers four creative workshops and classes under the adults category:

Kids Programs

Portside offers several programs just for kids, both during the school year and the summer:

Teen Portfolio Building Workshops

These workshops help local teens build portfolios which can be used for school or personal use. Each of the five workshops focuses on a different portfolio requirement needed for applications to Creative and Performing Arts High School and Benjamin Rush High School. This program helps students become better artists and better understand themselves and their identities through art.

Workshop dates for 2019 are as follows:

Artists of all skill levels are welcome in these workshops. Students will learn self-portrait drawing, still life drawing, painting, sculpture, and digital photography.

ArtsMobile Project

This project helps bring art directly into classrooms in the River Wards. The stated mission of ArtsMobile "is to deliver visual arts integration to local schools during the day, in the classroom, at no cost to the school." The program seeks to improve student learning through interaction with the arts, along with educating teachers about the value of arts integration.


Portside Arts Center organizes three major annual community events:

Lehigh Ave Arts Fest

The Lehigh Ave Arts Fest is the main event on the Portside calendar and the largest annual fundraiser, supporting Portside's Young Artists Scholarship Fund. This scholarship fund helps kids and teens in Philadelphia to nurture their creative sides in visual arts programs year-round.

Some highlights from 2018's LAAF included:

The Philly Puff

The Philly Puff is an annual inflatable sculpture contest that takes place alongside the Lehigh Ave Arts Fest. This always makes for a fun time, whether you're a spectator or debuting your own inflatable work of art.

Family Halloween Party

Every year, Portside hosts a community Halloween party with family-friendly fun activities like dancing, games, raffles, a costume contest, pumpkin painting, and other fun Halloween pasttimes.

After a long day at the office, it's always good to relax with a drink or two at one of the many great happy hour specials throughout the city. Our Kensington personal injury lawyers love visiting the variety of excellent bars in the Kensington area - many of which offer great drink and food specials during happy hour. Some of our favorite places to grab a round of drinks and some tasty bar food in this neighborhood include:

Cook and Shaker

If you've worked up an appetite and are looking for some delicious and creative food to pair with a tasty craft beer, Cook and Shaker is a great choice. This small corner bar has a welcoming ambiance and incredible food, along with a large selection of craft beer and cocktails. There is basically something for everyone here, including a good selection of meatless dishes. Happy hour highlights include 1/2 price on 2 draft beers, 1/2 price bar snacks, and the Olde Richmond Punch cocktail for $5. And they even half a midday happy hour on Saturdays.

Gaul and Co. Malt House

Located where Kensington and Port Richmond meet, Gaul and Co. Malt House offers a great selection of craft beers, domestics, cocktails, and flavorful bar food. Many of the items on their menu are Polish-inspired, which reflects the large Polish population of the neighborhood. They're famous for their "Wit or Witowski" - a cheesesteak made with chipped kielbasa. Stop in here for a discounted craft beer at happy hour and enjoy it alongside one of their many delectable food items.

Some of our favorite things to order here include:

Bait & Switch

This seafood-themed gastropub lets you pair your choice of craft beer, wine, or cocktail with your choice of delicious dishes. Along with tasty and fresh seafood, they offer sandwiches, a "land food" section of the menu, soups, salads, and more.

We regularly order the following drinks and dishes from Bait & Switch:

Memphis Taproom

Memphis Taproom was one of the first gastropubs in Kensington, and we think it's still one of the best. We especially love coming here during the warm months and drinking in the backyard area, but it's a great spot in the winter with its cozy atmosphere. Happy hours are always fun here and we also love visiting for brunch.

Here are some of our favorite things to order at Memphis Taproom:

Atlantis, The Lost Bar

Gastropubs are great and all, but sometimes you just want a good dive bar. Atlantis, The Lost Bar scratches that itch for us in Kensington. The drinks are always cheap here, but you can get especially good deals during happy hour. You can't get a full meal here, but they do often have free soft pretzels sitting out if you want something to snack on.

The Kensington area has been undergoing something of a rebirth over the past several years, with all kinds of interesting new businesses opening up in the neighborhood. One of our favorite recent additions is Urban Axes, which is a nationwide chain that chose to make their Philadelphia location in Kensington. It's what it sounds like - you have the chance to throw axes at targets in the middle of the city. This makes for a great group activity when you and your friends are looking for a fun night out. It's also a great choice for a team-building exercise at work or a fun and unusual date night.

What is Axe Throwing?

Axe throwing is an indoor sport that first gained popularity in Canada. It's been growing in popularity there for the past decade and has recently started to become popular south of the border, here in the United States.

The game is similar to darts. You throw hatches at wooden targets that have bullseyes. Like darts, you get points based on where your axe lands on the board.

Ways to Play at Urban Axes

Urban Axes offers three different ways to participate in the axe-throwing action:

Group Events

Urban Axes offers special group events for groups of 6 to 24 people. These events last for 2.5 hours. In our opinion, this is the most fun way to experience Urban Axes. This is what you want if you're looking to host a birthday party, team-building exercise, bachelor/bachelorette party, reunion, or a fun night out on the town with a group of friends. These are organized in a tournament format and include safety and instruction from an expert staff member before the start of the tournament. Group events must be booked in advance.

8-Week Leagues

If you're really looking to build your skills as an axe thrower, consider signing up for an 8-week league. This is a great way to meet new people if you're new to the city. There is no need to find a team to compete with - you'll build bonds with other participants as you compete over the course of the season.


If you're just a little curious about axe-throwing but not quite ready to commit to a full group outing, you can check out Urban Axe during their walk-in hours. They offer set times where you can participate in an hour-long walk-in session. Staff will give you pointers and help you improve your game.

Port Richmond has long been the hub of Polish culture in Philadelphia, with a large population of both Polish-Americans and recent immigrants from the motherland. The Polish community gives this neighborhood a real charm, including a great selection of Polish restaurants, delis, butchers, and grocery stores. Regardless of where you live in the city, we think all Philly residents should make at least one trip to Port Richmond to try Polish favorites like kielbasa, pierogies, stuffed cabbage, and so many others. Here are some of our Richmond personal injury lawyers' favorite Polish restaurants in Port Richmond:

The Dinner House

With so many great Polish restaurants, it's hard to pick our favorite. But the Dinner House is one place we keep coming back to again and again. This small, family-owned restaurant has all of the Polish food favorites you could hope to find. You can even see your meal being made with a view of the kitchen from their small dining room. Dinner House also has very affordable lunch specials if you work in the area and are looking for a cheap but delicious lunch.

Here are some of our favorite dishes at the Dinner House:

Syrenka Luncheonette

As the name implies, Syrenka is a small cafeteria-style luncheonette. Simply walk in, grab a tray and a plate, and choose an entree with a couple of sides. This makes for an extremely filling, hearty, and affordable lunch - coming to under $10 before a drink. Their selection also features a variety of classic Polish foods. Some of our favorites here include:

New Wave Cafe

Make sure to come early if you're hungry, as the kitchen usually closes by 7 or 8. After that, New Wave Cafe is a fun neighborhood bar. While we like to stop in here for a couple of beers, the food is definitely the main draw. All of their dishes are authentic and will leave you feeling full and satisfied.

We like to order the following items from the New Wave Cafe menu:

Mom Mom's Kitchen

What started as a neighborhood Polish food cart has recently found a brick-and-mortar location in Bridesburg. Word about Mom-Mom's Kitchen and Polish Food Cart spread fast, and the cart quickly became a neighborhood favorite. That success has led to their permanent location on Orthodox Street. They serve both classic favorites and new creations, such as Philly cheesesteak pierogies.

M & M Restaurant

M & M is a neighborhood mom-and-pop restaurant that has been delighting Port Richmond residents with flavorful Polish food for decades. This is more of a breakfast or lunch spot, as they're only opened from 7:30 a.m. until 2 p.m. But if you're looking for a hearty breakfast in Port Richmond, we highly recommend stopping by M & M Restaurant.

This article will provide a brief history of Elwyn, PA, and has been shared by the Elwyn personal injury attorneys at Justice Guardians.

Native Americans Inhabited Elwyn Long Before The Europeans Arrived

European settlers arrived in the 1600s, however, for thousands of years before these Dutch, Swedish, and British settlers began to establish communities, the Lenape lived on the land that is now called Elwyn.

The Lenape would create temporary village structures and live off of the land, planting, hunting, and fishing. When clan elders determined that that the area had been exhausted, the village would be moved to a new location. This allowed nature to replenish what had been taken.

When the Europeans arrived, they negotiated and traded with the Lenape, taking over the lands that now make up Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Delaware, and New York. Farms and small villages were built and roads constructed. Over time, mills and other businesses were built near local waterways, taking advantage of the power the water had to offer.

Dr. Alfred L. Elwyn

Elwyn is named after Dr. Alfred L. Elwyn. Dr. Elwyn was a philanthropist and he advocated for the training and care of the medically disabled in the United States. He believed that instead of being sent to an asylum, the mentally disabled should be provided with the best care and training possible, giving many of them the opportunity to be self-sufficient. In 1852, Elwyn established a training school for the mentally disabled and later convinced the Pennsylvania State Legislature to charter "The Pennsylvania Training School for Feeble-Minded Children". Elwyn became the head of the school in 1870.

This school became the leading center for advancements made in the care and training of the mentally disabled. Today, the school still exists and is the longest-running human services nonprofit of its kind. Thousands of caregivers have received training at the facility, taking their knowledge to provide care to others throughout the country.

The Invention Of The Gasoline Powered Vehicle

It was in 1606 that a man named Jeronimo de Ayanz patented his steam engine, however, many historians don't attribute the invention of the steam engine to him, simply because the engine had no pistons or cylinders.

Over the next several centuries, many inventors improved upon de Ayanz's design, making the steam engine more powerful and using it for purposes other than pumping water from mines. Then, in 1879, Karl Benz patented his gasoline-powered engine and by 1885, he had designed a built a three-wheeled vehicle that was powered by that engine. He named the vehicle the Motorwagen and patented the design in 1886.

Benz sold around 25 Motorwagens over the next several years and also built a four-wheeled version. He wasn't the only inventor working on producing a personal vehicle, however, and it wasn't long before Benz had competition.

With an increase in the number of personal vehicles on the road, it was only natural that one of those drivers would be the first to crash their car.

James William Lambert: Remembered By History As The First Person To Crash A Car

James William Lambert worked hard to design and build his own cars, the first of which was a three-wheeled car with one wheel in the front and two in the back. Lambert didn't know that his design made the car very unstable and he took it for a drive with a friend. One of the wheels struck a tree root and the car veered out of control.

Lambert and his passenger were unharmed, however, the car wasn't as lucky.

Following this accident, Lambert built a four-wheeled car but that vehicle burned to the ground when the engine caught fire during a drive.

Chester Creek & Trail

Taking a stroll along a beautiful creek can inspire creativity and clear the mind, our experienced Aston injury lawyers have sponsored this article, in hopes that you visit this historical creek and trail.

History of the Creek

The Chester Creek Trail in central Delaware County is a rail-trail that follows the creek along the Civil War-era Chester Creek Branch line of the Pennsylvania Railroad. Created to provide transportation through south and central Delaware County, the Chester Creek Branch of the Pennsylvania Railroad began transporting residents in the late 1860s.

The railroad running parallel to Chester Creek was a critical economic connection for people traveling from nearby cities to mines, warehouses, and factories. The railroad was no longer required after many years of economic development and advanced means of transport and was permanently closed in 1972 following significant flood damage caused by Hurricane.

In 1994, the Friends of the Chester Creek Branch was formed under the sponsorship of the Chester-Ridley-Crum Watersheds Association. Around that same time, resident Mike Fusco believed there was a possibility of turning the abandoned line to a rail-trail.


Today, the rail-trail is a fully accessible path that separates the community to explore different areas of the creek. Visitors can find the trailheads on Lenni Road located in the city of Lenni, and Knowlton Road in Middletown Township.

Designed for all skill levels, the well-maintained paved trail allows pedestrians and bicyclists to travel alongside the creek. The scenic path is known for its safe environment, lush green surroundings, and a treasured destination for hikers and families nearby.

Local Projects

The Chester Creek Branch of Friends and the Rockdale Arts District have initiated a new partnership project with Walker to create a 450-foot long mural for visitors to enjoy, beginning in Spring 2020.

With Jay Walker, a nationally recognized artist known for his creative paintings, drawings, and carved sculptures, the mural will inspire outdoor art for all to observe and inspire.

1887: The Year The United States Learned About Chiropractic Care

Chiropractic care isn't far from celebrating its 150th birthday! In 1885, a man named Daniel David Palmer became fascinated by the spine and the connections in the body. He discovered his interest in the spine after treating a janitor in his office.

According to Palmer, the janitor, who was cleaning with no shirt on, had a noticeable knot in his back. He told Palmer the knot had been there for years, ever since an incident where he was lifting and felt a pop. The back pain had been a constant part of his life ever since.

Palmer offered to try and treat the man and performed his first spinal adjustment. The knot disappeared and the janitor said he felt immediate relief. Palmer stopped working as a magnetic healer and began to study the spine. He believed that spinal adjustments could help to cure any number of medical conditions.

Two years after his encounter with the janitor, Palmer opened up the Palmer School Of Chiropractic. He began to teach others and interest in chiropractic care spread quickly. Within 20 years, Kansas became the first state to recognize chiropractic care as an official form of medicine.

Today, chiropractors have to be licensed. There are more than 7,000 providers throughout the country.

Choosing A Chiropractor

Anytime that a patient has to seek care from a medical professional they should ask for recommendations from their other treating physicians and loved ones. Even with recommendations, it's important to ask questions, such as:

Patients should always feel comfortable with any medical provider they are receiving care from and should seek a second opinion if they don't feel comfortable.

Will A Chiropractic Adjustment Cause More Pain?

Chiropractors use the least amount of pressure to perform adjustments and the goal is to be as gentle as possible. Adjustments shouldn't cause pain, however, patients can expect to feel sore the next day.

Glen Riddle, PA Before European Settlement

Long before any European immigrant arrived on American soil, the Lenape tribe made the area that is now Glen Riddle their home. The Lenape are semi-nomadic, moving their settlement from one location to another once it had been determined that the surrounding area had been "exhausted".

The Arrival Of The Europeans

In the 1600s, the Dutch and Swedish arrived in the Glen Riddle area and purchased land from the Lenape. Settlements were built and farms established. Eventually, the English took over the area, maintaining control until the end of the Revolutionary War.

Glen Riddle has survived the Revolutionary War and the Civil War, with many historical sites still standing for history buffs to enjoy.

Where Did The Name "Glen Riddle" Come From?

Samuel D. Riddle was an Irishman who moved to the United States in 1825. Riddle worked at several mills in the area, ultimately purchasing and/or building five mills of his own. His business successes allowed him to purchase a thoroughbred horse farm and estate that he named Glen Riddle Farm. Eventually, Riddle's son took over the family business and is known for owning famous racehorses including Man O' War and War Admiral!

The area is proud to be associated with Man O' War, a chestnut racehorse who is widely believed to be one of the greatest racehorses of all time. Although he was not entered into the Kentucky Derby because his owner didn't want to race him 10 furloughs, however, he did go on to win the Preakness and the Belmont Stakes. Later, Man O' War raced in a match race against Sir Barton in the first race to be filmed in its entirety - a race which Man O' War won by seven lengths.

Once he was retired to stud he went on to sire many famous horses, including War Admiral, the fourth winner of the Triple Crown.

Today, Glen Riddle is an unincorporated section of Middletown Township in Delaware County, PA.

If you've been involved in a car accident you likely need to have repairs made to your vehicle. This article, provided by the Glen Riddle, PA personal injury attorneys at Justice Guardians, covers the history of the car, the first car accident, and auto body shops in the Glenn Riddle area.

The History Of The Modern Car

Humans have always worked to develop new methods of transportation, both to transport people and goods. But it wasn't until 1885 that Karl Benz built the first of his "Motorwagens". He received a patent for the three-wheeled vehicle in 1886 and began to build the car to sell. Over the next several years, he sold about 25. He also built and patented a four-wheeled version.

At around the same time, several other inventors also created their own models in France and in Germany. In America, the Duryea brothers built the first American car, called the "Duryea Motorwagon".

The First Car Accident & The Mass Production Of Parts

An American holds the record for being involved in the first car accident. Mr. James William Lambert was out for a drive with his friend in his single-cylinder, gasoline-powered vehicle in Ohio City, OH, when the tire of his car his a giant tree root. He lost control of the wheel and crashed into a hitching post.

While neither one of the occupants was seriously injured, the car was. Since cars were not yet a common form of transportation, it took quite some time for repairs to be made.

The first few car accidents, coupled with the desire to sell as many cars as possible, resulted in the mass production of car parts. Ultimately, this also allowed individual mechanics to open their own shops and provide repair services.

How Do I Choose The Right Mechanic?

It can be scary when you have to pick a mechanic, given the number of horror stories that exist where mechanics took advantage of unsuspecting customers. To pick a trustworthy mechanic, you may want to consider asking the following questions:

  1. How long have you been repairing cars?
  2. What certifications do you have?
  3. Do you have any specific certifications that pertain to my make and model of car?
  4. Can you provide me with a written estimate?
  5. If additional repairs need to be made that are not on the estimate will you contact me?
  6. Will you work directly with my insurance company?

You should always go with your gut when choosing a mechanic. If you can obtain recommendations from family, friends, or your insurance company, be sure to do so.

1887: The First Chiropractic School Opens

It was in 1887 that Daniel David Palmer opened the Palmer School of Chiropractic, the first school to teach chiropractors. Palmer, who was formally a magnetic healer, became interested in learning about the musculoskeletal system after he helped a janitor in his building adjust his back. After the adjustment, the janitor told Palmer that he felt instant relief.

In less than two decades, Kansas became the first state to recognize chiropractic care as an official medical treatment. Soon, many states required practitioners to undergo testing in order to become licensed. Today, more than 7,000 people are licensed chiropractors offering care to accident victims throughout the country.

What Types Of Injuries Do Chiropractors Treat?

Chiropractors can treat a wide variety of injuries, the most common being:

  1. ACL Tears
  2. Meniscus Tears
  3. Patella Luxations
  4. Elbow Injury
  5. Muscle Strain
  6. Neck Injury
  7. Back Injury

Be sure to discuss your entire medical history with your chiropractor during the first visit. This will help to create a treatment plan.

Will A Chiropractic Adjustment Hurt?

Patients who have undergone chiropractic care report feeling pressure and a little bit of discomfort during the actual adjustment. Additionally, sore muscles are often felt after. However, there should be no serious pain while being adjusted.

How Long Do Chiropractic Treatments Last?

Every patient will need to see a chiropractor for a different amount of time. For some, one or two adjustments are enough to set them on the right track. Others will regularly visit their chiropractor for years. It all depends on the injuries being treated and the patient's overall health.

Aston: The Beginning

Like all of Pennsylvania, the area that is now called Aston was first inhabited by the Lenape. This Native American tribe is semi-nomadic. The tribe, which is divided into clans, would build a semi-permanent town in a part of the land and live there until tribal elders determined that the land had been exhausted. Then they would move to a new location.

In the 1600s, European settlers arrived. The Dutch made several settlements near the Aston area and eventually, the British took control of the area. In 1682, Aston was formed as a municipality called "Northley". In 1687, the area was renamed Aston and in 1688, formed into a township.

The majority of the land was originally used as farmland. However, residents soon realized that the number of close creeks and rivers was perfect for mills and so dozens of mills were built, bringing jobs and helping the population to grow rapidly.

The area has survived the Revolutionary War, the Civil War, World War I, and World War II.

Today, that former farmland is full of shopping centers, government buildings, schools, and homes.

The invention of the car is a fairly recent one when speaking in historical terms. In fact, oddly enough, two German men in two different cities filed patents for what would eventually be called an automobile on the very same day, January 29th, 1886. The first man, Karl Benz, had created a three-wheeled vehicle that used an internal combustion engine. The second man, Gottlieb Daimler, combined a four-wheeled carriage and an internal combustion engine.

Since these early creations, cars have only become larger, faster, and more powerful. While this can be considered a good thing, since vehicles allow the movement of both people and goods, this combination can also be dangerous. No one knows this better than a car accident victim.

The First Car Accident

The first known car accident on record occurred in Ohio City, Ohio. Two men were inside the car, which was owned and being driven by James William Lambert. At one point in their journey, one of the tires hit a tree root, causing the car to become unstable. Lambert lost control and the vehicle crashed into a hitching post. Thankfully those involved were not seriously injured.

Mass production soon allowed mechanics to build new cars faster and provided parts to replace damaged components after an accident. Today, thousands of collision repair shops exist to serve those whose car has been involved in a crash.

What Questions Should A Car Owner Ask A Mechanic?

It's important to ask questions before trusting any auto body shop to do work on a vehicle. Questions may include:

  1. What credentials do you have?
  2. What makes and models of cars do you have experience working on?
  3. Can you provide me with an estimate?
  4. Are you going to use aftermarket or original equipment manufacturer parts?
  5.  Is there a warranty on the replacement parts and work being performed?
  6. Do you have insurance to cover the car while it is in the shop?

Finding a good auto body repair shop can be difficult. Be sure to check online reviews before visiting a shop.

Many accident victims find that receiving care from a chiropractor helps them during their recovery. The Aston personal injury attorneys at Justice Guardians have shared this article about the history of chiropractic care, how it can benefit a patient, and the common injuries treated.

Who Invented Chiropractic Care?

Daniel David Palmer is known as the man who first named the practice "chiropractic". He even started the first school for chiropractors, the Palmer School of Chiropractic, in 1897. His interest in the field developed after he made an adjustment to the spine of a janitor cleaning in his office.

A few days after the adjustment, the Palmer stated that the janitor to tell him that his hearing had improved after fixing his misaligned vertebrae, hearing that the janitor had lost not long after feeling a "pop" in his back. This caused Palmer to seek further information on how misalignments in the structure of the body could impact other areas.

With a few decades, chiropractic care was recognized as an official form of medicine in the United States and practitioners had to be licensed.

How Does Chiropractic Care Help Patients?

Adjustments made by a chiropractor can:

  1. Strengthen the body so that recovery from surgery is faster;
  2. Reduce pain;
  3. Improve joint mobility;
  4. Improve balance.

How Long Does A Patient Need To Be Seen By A Chiropractor?

The length of time that a patient needs to be seen on a chiropractor depends upon the overall health and the medical conditions that are being treated. During an initial consultation, a treatment plan should be discussed, including anticipated treatment lengths.

Do Chiropractic Adjustments Hurt?

Generally speaking, chiropractic adjustments are meant to occur with the least amount of force possible and minimal pressure. Some patients do report feeling soreness after an adjustment, comparable to the soreness that one might feel after a good workout. Typically, relief is felt almost immediately after an adjustment is made.

What Types Of Injuries And Pain Do Chiropractors Treat?

The most common types of injury or pain that are treated by chiropractors include:

  1. neck pain;
  2. spinal cord compression;
  3. hip pain;
  4. muscle strain;
  5. herniated disc;
  6. rotator cuff injury;
  7. ACL tear;
  8. patellar damage;
  9. ankle pain.

Many chiropractors request that additional workups be performed at other specialists so that a clear diagnosis of the underlying injury can be made.

This article, provided by the Garnet Valley personal injury attorneys at Justice Guardians, will discuss the history of chiropractic care, how chiropractic care can benefit patients and local chiropractors in the area.

The Invention Of Chiropractic Care

The reality is that some form of spinal and muscle manipulation has existed in the medical world for thousands of years. However, the founder of the term and the first school of chiropractic care was Daniel David Palmer. Palmer became interested in the musculoskeletal system and how it connected the body after helping his janitor by correcting a knot in his back.

The janitor told Palmer after the adjustment that not only had his back pain improved, but his hearing had also improved. This caused Palmer to believe that spinal adjustments could benefit nearly any patient with any type of medical condition. He opened the Palmer School of Chiropractic in 1887.

Several decades later, Kansas became the first state to recognize chiropractic care as a form of medicine and to require licensing tests. Today, there are nearly 7,000 practitioners in the United States.

How Can Chiropractic Care Help A Patient?

Chiropractic care helps by improving the overall connection in the body. This can result in:

A chiropractor should go over the treatments they believe are best for a patient during their initial consultation. These treatments will vary from person to person and are based on their medical history and actual injuries.

Can I Get My Pain Meds From My Chiropractor?

No, chiropractors believe in drugless medicine and do not write prescriptions.
