Steve Powers DC

Dr. Steve Powers earned his Doctorate of Chiropractic degree from Logan University in St. Louis MO, in December 2023.  He also earned is Bachelors of Science-Pre chiropractic degree from IUP (Indiana University of Pennsylvania).  

 

Dr. Powers grew up in the Western Pennsylvania town of Butler, which is in the greater Pittsburgh area.  Growing up his background was heavily influenced by multiple sports and supported by sport-specific strength and conditioning.  Playing football and basketball mainly with some track and field mixed in, as well as working as a footwear retail sales associate.  Through his time as an athlete, this allowed Dr. Powers to experience firsthand how sport-specific strength and conditioning can drastically improve one’s quality of life through intentional movement.  In addition, his time as a footwear sales associate allowed him to analyze the gait mechanics of his customers and give them specific suggestions on which shoes will be best suited for them.

 

Throughout his chiropractic education, Dr. Powers has learned and developed a wide range of treatment styles and philosophies.   Dynamic Neuromuscular Stabilization (DNS), is an assessment and treatment modality which follows the principles of developmental kinesiology, intra-abdominal pressure, and joint centration.  Each of these elements when combined allow for a magnifying glass-like view of patient biomechanics, and what areas of the body need to be examined further.  The great thing about DNS is that it functions as both an assessment and a treatment technique to restore optimal joint function.  Additionally it is catered specifically to each patient depending on their individual needs.

 

Another phenomenal modality Dr. Powers uses is McKenzie (Mechanical Diagnosis and Therapy).  Much like DNS, McKenzie also functions as an assessment, as well as a treatment modality which utilizes end range loading to find directional preference to reduce symptoms and improve range of motion.  The best feature about McKenzie is that it not only is used as an assessment and treatment, but it also functions as a self-treatment tool for patients to use on their own outside of the office.

 

 Additional tools Dr. Powers employs are Motion Palpation, Functional Range Conditioning, Selective Functional Movement Assessment, and more.  All of these tools allow Dr. Powers to assess and treat the body as a whole dynamic unit.

 

In his free time, Dr. Powers enjoys staying active with weight training, running, boxing, and hiking.  In his downtime he enjoys reading, meditating, and finding new restaurants to try.
