Alicja Ignatowicz, DO

Osteopathic Manipulative Treatment
Langhorne, PA

Meet Dr Alicja Ignatowicz

I was born in Wroclaw, Poland and grew up in Augusta, GA. I graduated with a B.S. in Biochemistry and Molecular Biology from the University of Georgia in Athens, GA. While attending the Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine-GA Campus, for a Biomedical Sciences masters program, I was first exposed to Osteopathic Manipulative Treatment, which sparked a life-long passion for hands on therapy. After graduating from medical school (PCOM-GA Campus) in 2015, I completed residency in Family Medicine and OMT at Jefferson Health Northeast in Langhorne, PA. I am Board Certified in Family Medicine and Osteopathic Manipulative Treatment since 2018.  

Since 2011, I have spent time training with mentors, attending courses and conferences, and teaching OMT at national conferences with the American College of Osteopathic Family Physicians.

My greatest passions aside from OMT are traveling the world with my partner, TJ and spending as much time outside as possible.

What is OMT

What is Osteopathic Manipulative Treatment?

Osteopathy was founded in the late 1800s by Andrew Taylor Still, MD, who developed a medical system that incorporates an extensive study of anatomy, its intricate relationship to overall health and wellbeing, and the principal understanding that the body has an inherent, self-healing mechanism which may be affected by anatomical deviations.

Doctors of Osteopathic Medicine who practice Osteopathic Manipulative Treatment (OMT) use hands-on treatments to help alleviate pain, restore mobility, and reduce or eliminate impediments to health by focusing on the relationship between a body’s structure and optimal function. We consider the musculoskeletal system, but also its relationship to all other physiologic systems.

OMT is gentle and can be used to treat people of all ages, including pregnant women, newborns, and elderly. The specific modalities used are customized to each individual, and the possible conditions treated are quite vast.

What to Expect

What To Expect During Your Appointment

Typical Appointment

Initial treatments are usually an hour long. Follow up treatments are typically 45-60 minutes, depending on individual needs at the time of treatment.

I recommend that you wear loose fitting, comfortable clothing to your treatments.  

Please refrain from smoking prior to a treatment, since the scent can linger and create discomfort for other patients. Smoke sensitivities can affect the health of some people, creating symptoms such as allergies, watery eyes, asthma, difficulty breathing, headaches, coughing, and sneezing. Thank you for understanding.

Cancellation and No Show Policy

As a general rule, I ask that you notify me within 24 hours if you need to cancel your appointment. Appointment spots are limited each day to allow time for longer treatments, so please be courteous to other patients by opening up a spot if you cannot make your appointment. If you miss your appointment without notice, you will be charged for the appointment.

Payment Options

The current price is $300 per treatment. I accept credit/debit card, FSA card, cash, check, or Venmo.

I do not accept insurance, but will provide a superbill for you to file with your insurance company for reimbursement if desired. The amount reimbursed will depend on your specific plan. I am considered an out-of-network provider.

Additional financial rules apply for Medicare beneficiaries. Please contact the office for details.

Patients requesting to be seen under Workers Compensation and MVA may not be eligible to submit a superbill (please call your insurance accordingly).
