Dr. Alex Swauger
Doctor of Chiropractic
Hi, I am Dr. Alex Swauger. Growing up in Waynesburg, PA, I have always enjoyed playing sports including baseball, basketball, golf, and skiing. I went on to play baseball at Fairmont State University, where I graduated with a degree in Exercise Science. From there, I attended chiropractic school at Life University outside Atlanta, GA.
Growing up struggling with autoimmune disease, I have found hope and healing by living out a chiropractic lifestyle that includes incorporating the 5 essentials. I live in Brookline and am excited to start my chiropractic career here in the South Hills! In my free time I enjoy working out, cooking healthy meals, and spending time with my family who lives in the area, including my two beautiful nieces.
Jena has been a part of MaxLiving for 15 years, learning the 5 Essentials of health and instilling these health goals to patients is a passion of hers. Jena and her husband Dr Alex Pattison opened City of Bridges Chiropractic over 11 years ago and it is their mission to truly change the health care of Pittsburgh. Her and her husband reside in the South Hills of Pittsburgh with their three children.
Megan is an Edinboro University Graduate and recently completed her MBA. Her, her husband and 2 daughters reside in the South Hills of Pittsburgh.
Hi, I’m Megan! I was born and raised here in Pittsburgh, PA. After high school, I started working in childcare and eventually moved into the mortgage industry. I discovered a passion for helping and serving others which eventually lead me to City of Bridges Chiropractic where I have been fortunate enough to learn and grow.
I currently live in the west end of Pittsburgh with my husband and our two fur babies.
Hi, I’m Shannon. I grew up in little Washington, PA playing softball avidly during my grade school years and enjoying life with my family and friends. After high school I went on to work as a caregiver for an aging services, then earned my CNA certification.
I have a son whose smile lights up my darkest room and is medically compromised. Upon learning his diagnosis of epilepsy and autoimmune disease, I knew in my heart that implementing a natural living and healing lifestyle was what I needed to do for him. I live in the Pleasant Hills area, and I am very excited to plant my roots with the City Of Bridges Chiropractic family.
