Michael P Steinhauser, DC
Dr. Steinhauser has been a staff Chiropractic Physician at Medical Wellness Associates for over 10 years. He is a native of Western Pa, having graduated from South Park High School. While in high school he suffered a spinal injury.
After an unsuccessful course of Allopathic medicine for his condition, he turned to Chiropractic manipulation for help for his injury. The results were, according to Dr. Steinhauser, “nothing short of amazing. I went from not being able to put my shoes and socks on to returning to full contact sports without limitations.”
As they say, “The rest is history”. Dr. Steinhauser’s health care epiphany, propelled him to complete his degree in Health Sciences at IUP, and, subsequently, his D.C. degree from Palmer College of Chiropractic.
Following graduation, Dr. Steinhauser moved to Los Angeles, where he was employed as a staff D.C. at one of the first multidisciplinary health care facilities in California. Dr. Steinhauser worked with a team of orthopedic specialists in the treatment of spinal related injuries.
After 10 years, Dr. Steinhauser and his family relocated to Greensburg, Pa., where he now resides with his wife and three children. While at Medical Wellness Associates, he has provided immeasurable benefit to our patients. Dr. Steinhauser is known for his compassionate approach to patient care and high quality spinal manipulation. He also integrates nutritional assessment and vitamin and botanical medicine with his protocols.
We are privileged to have him as one of our associates at Medical Wellness Associates.
