Back Pain Specialist
Treating back pain first involves determining what part of a person’s anatomy is causing the pain and then figuring out why and how this problem arose. After determining what and how the problem occurred Dr. Steidl uses chiropractic manipulation, rehabilitative exercises, soft tissue techniques and postural reeducation to restore proper function to the body and relieve pain. Dr. Steidl, having suffered from a low back disc injury himself, takes a keen interest in diagnosing disc injuries and treating them with the most up to date researched techniques.
Dr. Steidl treats auto injuries, sports injuries and workers comp/personal injury cases. Treatment modalities again include Chiropractic manipulation, various soft tissue techniques, therapeutic exercises and electrical modalities. Electrical modalities include ultrasound, cold laser, interferential current and muscle stim. Dr Steidl also utilizes advanced training in kinesiology taping to aid with functional imbalances, postural reeducation, pain reduction and swelling reduction. Sometimes repairing the anatomical problem is only part of the concern. We can help with navigating the claim and insurance processes too!
