As a junior player in the United States Hockey League, Stephen Thiesing had grown accustomed to taking hard hits. Nothing could have prepared him, however, for the full-speed collision that left him convulsing on the ice with a severe spinal-cord trauma. Much to his surprise and disbelief, a subsequent visit to the doctor revealed nothing damaged or out of order. Still in pain, Steven was sent on his way.
This unfortunate visit planted the seeds of Steven’s interest in alternative modes of healthcare. Years later, after he had begun his career as a chiropractor, he discovered the source of his pain in a compression fracture in his neck. Bolstered by this discovery, he continued training to find a solution for his aches and eventually founded Thiesing Family Chiropractic Center to provide others with the kind of care that was missing from his own youth.
Doctor of Chiropractic Steven Thiesing now draws from his training and personal experience to craft specialized treatment plans based on his patients’ needs. Spinal adjustments are a central focus of his practice, as they can reduce nervous-system disruptions and help the body right itself naturally. Through a series of targeted adjustments, Dr. Thiesing works to relieve pain and stress resulting from injuries, headaches, allergies, and repeatedly carrying one’s boss from his office to the lunchroom. He further advises his patients to use the same system he adheres to in his own life, focusing on regular sleep, exercise, and a healthy diet.
