Dr. Steiner is an osteopath who specializes in manual therapy,
ergonomic consulting, and disease prevention.
Osteopaths employ a holistic approach to health care. Instead of just treating symptoms, they concentrate on treating you as a whole.
Osteopaths understand how all the body's systems are interconnected and how each one affects the others. They focus special attention on the musculoskeletal system, which reflects and influences the condtion of all other body systems.
Osteopathic Manual Therapy:
Many musculoskeletal pain conditions are caused by imbalances in the tension in the soft tissues of the body (muscles, ligaments, and tendons).
Dr. Steiner employs a gentle and relaxing form of manipulation known as myofascial release, which is directed to the soft tissues. His technique removes restrictions within the body and so reduces pain, improves flexibility, improves blood and lymphatic circulation, and nerve conduction. Balance is restored so that the body is better able to function and support its natural tendency toward health and self-healing.
conditions treated include:
back pain and neck pain
fibromyalgia/chronic fatigue syndrome
iliotibial band syndrome
irritable bowel syndrome
In my private practice, having cared for musculoskeletal injuries for years, I have found that many problems are caused by poor workplace ergonomics.
Ergonomics is the study of how the human body interacts with its work environment. More and more, people work sitting at desks for extended periods of time, staring at computer screens. Neck, back, hip, and arm/wrist injuries can result if a workplace has unsatisfactory ergonomics. This can be due to improper posture, chair height, desk height , keyboard postion , computer screen postioning, etc.
I visit the workplace of my client and evaluate the workspace, then, based on my findings, make personalized recommendations to improve the ergomomics.
Additionally, my clients are given simple, quick, and effective exercises to do at work and home, to prevent the muscle strain patterns from developing at work.
"Let food be your medicine and let medicine be your food."
The word doctor is derived from the latin word docere, which means to teach.
Educating patients about nutrition is at the foundation of Dr. Steiner's disease prevention practice. In the field of nutrition, there is a great deal of misinformation and conflcting theories. Dr. Steiner holds a Masters Degree in Human Nutrition from Columbia University's College of Physicians and Surgeons and has a solid grounding in the science of nutrition.
His approach to nutrition is centered around eating whole unprocessed foods including whole grains, fruits, seeds, nuts, vegetables, legumes, and lean meats (optional) in the optimal balance, combined with a personalized exercise regimen. Dr. Steiner and his patients work together as a team to build a permanent change in lifestyle and attitude toward eating and exercise so that they may have a longer and healthier life.
A holistic way to improving your health.
