Hello! My name is Dr. Marc Steiner, I would like to welcome you to Steiner Family Chiropractic. If you have been referred to this office or have seen us on social media, it’s obvious we aren’t your typical chiropractic office. My mission is to to be the once in a lifetime chiropractor that can guide you to true health, regardless of your current circumstances.
My mission is due in large part to the story I learned of a young man who was also being guided into health through chiropractic care. From a very early age it was apparent to all that this young man was one of those kids who had to learn things the hard way. He was born with a very inquisitive and questioning nature, which manifested as pushing the limits, on everything. Not surprisingly, he found himself in trouble with teachers, coaches, and authority figures regularly. Overtime, his unexplained drive to question and learn for himself became a blessing and a curse it seemed. Though excelling in school, he was easily bored and looked for mischief to entertain himself. Before he knew it, he was struggling with addictive substances to numb the pain he felt both mentally and physically. He found himself without hope and fighting to survive. He knew he had somehow lost his way, it seemed as though many layers of self doubt and confusion had been put between who he thought he was before and who he had become.
After a large accumulation of poor choices, he was living back at home with his parents after dropping out of college. He was numb to the world, medicated and hopeless. It wasn’t until months later at his sister’s wedding when an old family friend whom he had known and been close to since a very young age, took him under his wing where things started to change. This old friend was a chiropractor, and he told him that he needed to come into his office. The chiropractor could see that this young man’s body and mind were in rough shape. This young man never forgot what the chiropractor said next, he told him that he could help him, but it wasn’t going to be easy and would require commitment. The chiropractor required that he pay for the care himself and that he was not to miss an appointment or his care would be terminated. Extreme demands it seemed, however, something in him knew this was where he needed to be. It was like a lighthouse in the storm he was in. He worked a job in the middle of the night to make the money to pay for his care and he never missed an appointment. From the first adjustment he received it was as if the layers and layers of hurt and pain began to lift off of him. His mind seemed less cloudy and he began to feel things again. Within one month of going to the chiropractor, he re-enrolled in college. Now clear-headed, he realized then that he wanted to learn to become a chiropractor and learn to help other people the way he was helped. Soon after, he was nearly off all of the medications he was prescribed, and on his way into chiropractic school.
If you haven’t figured out this story by now, this young man was me. I can’t thank my chiropractor enough for what he did for me. It still brings a tear to my eye when I look back and see who I was then and who I am now. I feel have been given second chance to help people who are going through what I went through. Without judgment or ridicule I know that there is indeed hope for those who have lost it. If I had to pick one of the many lessons my parents instilled in me to describe my mission and passion it would be “Don’t waste your pain.” I truly understand now what my parents meant when they told me “Don’t waste your pain.” This statement guides me everyday. The lessons I learned have inspired me with a mission to make this world a better place.
I experienced and continue to experience the benefits of chiropractic care in a way I had never been exposed to or aware of before. My personal deep connection to people gives me a greater level of insight into the issues that many of our patients come into our office with. I believe that no-one deserves to be given up on, no-one deserves to fall through the cracks. We all deserve a second chance. Everyone has inside them the ability to heal and grow far beyond what they may currently be experiencing. My wife and I welcome all people from all walks of life into our office with open arms.
Thank you for taking the time to learn a little bit more about me and why I do what I do.
