Dr. Steffen McCullough, DC
Dr. Steffen J. McCullough grew up experiencing what chiropractic has to offer at an early age, receiving routine chiropractic care, whether it was for an injury or a wellness check, and knew from an early age that chiropractic was useful for more than just back pain.
Being very involved in sports throughout school, he realized the recovery time for any injuries he had, seemed to be less than many of his peers. Dr. McCullough attributes this to his routine chiropractic care that allowed his body to respond quickly to any injury or illness. Based on his experiences growing up with chiropractic Dr. McCullough feels it is essential that everyone receive chiropractic care, and that early chiropractic care is vital for developing a healthy musculoskeletal and immune system.
Dr. McCullough believes chiropractic, along with proper nutrition and exercise, has the opportunity to help people suffering from a wide range of health issues, including pain relief and wellness care. Naturally, chiropractic helps traditional neck and back problems, but chiropractic has also produced wonderful results with a variety of systemic problems.
