As an October 2015 graduate of Northwestern Health Sciences University, I am excited to be a part of the Human Performance Center. I look forward to focusing my research on the female athlete and developing specific testing and treatment protocols to combat the higher injury rate of women in sports. I appreciate the opportunity to work with a complex case load both in the clinic and on the sidelines.
Kyle Steineman, DC, ATC, ICCSP
I graduated from National University Health Sciences-Florida campus in 2015. Various bumps and bruises during my baseball career led me to seek sports medicine education via athletic training and chiropractic programs. A passion of mine is utilizing nutrition to maximize human performance, both on and off the field. I am especially excited to contribute to Northwestern Health Sciences University and the sports chiropractic community through academic research, student mentoring and clinical practice in the Human Performance Center.
