"I had a concussion and started seeing Dr. Steadman about three weeks into my recovery process. I had dizzy spells, lightheadedness, headaches, trouble with word finding while speaking, problems with balance, nausea and difficulty eating full meals, insomnia at night, anxiety nightmares when I did sleep, constant fatigue throughout the day, and I flustered easily and was highly emotional. I was also very light sensitive and noise sensitive.
I feel much more like my old self again. In some ways I feel even better. I am still in the recovery process as it has only been a couple of months, but my recovered accelerated upon starting to see Dr. Steadman. My episodes of the previously mentioned symptoms are very infrequent and much less intense.
I sustained a head injury while skiing in late January and as a result suffered a concussion and had been diagnosed with post-concussive syndrome. I didn’t understand my symptoms or what to expect, and I was becoming very frustrated with myself and with my recovery process. Things that I could normally do in the past, like speak a foreign language, swim, teach a roomful of noisy 4th graders, and dance to live music would all make my head spin and make me crash. A head injury is not like a broken arm that you can feel healing due to lessening pain, and increased utility, so it was a very frustrating process, and I often felt like my symptoms were “all in my head” as I joked, because it was hard to accept them as real or legitimate.
I had seen multiple doctors, specialists, therapists, and speech therapists, and had five different radiology exams from CT scans to MRIs, and I had been hospitalized and given drugs with very uncomfortable side effects. After all of this, all I ever heard from anyone was, “There’s no way to tell how long this will take, and there’s nothing we can do but wait it out.” Some doctors offered me brief explanations of what my brain had experienced, but no explanation as to the implications of my injury.
The first time I saw Dr. Steadman, he did a much more thorough examination than I had received from the multitude of doctors I had already seen. He spent a long time explaining what I had experienced, how it affected different parts of my brain, and how those parts affected my body, my processing abilities, what I was experiencing, and what I would start to experience through recovery. He explained all of this in a way that was easy to understand, yet thorough enough to give me a complete picture. He spoke with me in a way that honored my experiences and provided personalized responses and action plans. He was so easy to talk to and enjoyable to work with. He was the first doctor who told me that we could actually do something to aid and even accelerate my recovery.
Dr. Steadman had such a thorough understanding of what was happening with my brain and my recovery that he was even able to pinpoint some behaviors and brain functioning that were likely happening prior to my injury and were likely being exacerbated by it. In the process of helping me to recover from my injury, he has helped me to alleviate some of the problems I was experiencing before my injury that contributed to anxiety and emotional hypersensitivity.
Since I started working with him, Dr. Steadman has given me many easy exercises and behaviors I can practice at home to aid in my recovery. He has also given me tools to use to alleviate the symptoms caused by stressful situations and light sensitivity. All of this has gotten me back to my normal life more quickly. I’ve been able to get back to work and have even coped with the end of school year stresses better than I ever have in the past. I’ve slowly started getting back to exercising, and even started listening to live music and dancing again within the past few weeks.
I feel like I have emerged from what felt like a shadow to be my enthusiastic and energetic old self again! All of my family, friends, and colleagues say it’s good to have me back. I’m happy to be back and I thank Dr. Steadman for helping to make my recovery much less difficult."
"I have sent clients, friends and family members plus used their services myself, so what I have to say about their incredible care is based not only on my own experiences, but those who I have referred their practice. I refer to Dr. Shane as the WOW doctors, because they get results where others only try. They specialize in illness and medical conditions that the normal health practitioner cannot find the answers for. They give hope and encouragement to people who have been told there is nothing we can do. I love their philosophy of no drugs or surgery, their desire to treat patients who want to take responsibility for their health, and their passion to service them."
"I had several test done that helped figure out what problems were occurring in my brain. I felt the doctor was very thorough in the examination. I also felt the whole team was very knowledgeable and did their best to take care of me as a patient."
"I am very grateful for Dr. Shane Steadman and his staff. For over a year, my left arm was becoming "frozen" in a bent position, and I could not straighten it out. After much chiropractic, massage therapy and acupuncture, I found Dr. Steadman by referral of someone else he had helped significantly. Dr. Steadman assessed my symptoms, did some testing and had me do some simple eye/brain exercises. Amazingly, my arm was able to straighten out and be natural again. I am forever grateful. After this success, I took my young son to Dr. Steadman, for a concussion he had sustained several years prior. The staff treated my son wonderfully, and the exercises appeared to really help him. Thank you, docs and staff!"
"After hearing my own Doctor's wife talk about how much her health had improved after going through the Integrated Health program, AND, after hearing her speak so highly of Dr. Steadman, and his Team, I decided to take a chance and check it out for myself! She was correct! Yes, they helped me as well... a fact for which I am very grateful!!
You see, their program is completely unique, and centered around guiding one to recognize so many things that can enrich and strengthen your body (and even your brain!) that perhaps you never thought of before!! Yes, I said "Guiding" you…NOT pressuring you, which I loved, because they help you design a plan according to what YOU want and what YOU feel your needs are, in order to enrich your health and life!
Their programs are quite varied, unique and interesting! As far as I am concerned, Dr. Steadman, and the whole team's knowledge, and professionalism are unmatched... including the front office team members, who are always so gracious and accommodating. It has been a very valuable learning experience, and one I know will continue to benefit me! So thanks again, for your caring, your concern."
"Everyone that works here is very kind and caring. The doctors spend lots of time asking questions and testing to make sure that whatever health issues you are having get solved. They don't try to just cover up your problems with medications. My experience here has been so much better than any of the traditional doctors that I've been too. I feel better now than I have in 14 years!"

"I had been struggling with post-concussive syndrome and severe energy and digestive issues for years before I found Dr. Steadman. I was not able to work or socialize or have a life. I worked with many "top" doctors around the country and was told that I was "fine." In other words, most doctors did not want to take the time to work with a case like mine, because it was too complex. They didn't want to take the time to find answers. Due to all this, I did not trust Dr. Steadman when he told me he really likes to work with cases like mine; I had been told so many times by doctors that they could help.
After many visits I began to acknowledge that Dr. Steadman really does stick to his word, and he is truly committed to being a detective as well as a doctor. He is different. He takes the time that most doctors don't take to look more closely and explore all possibilities, as he has been doing with me for the past 7 months.
It turns out that things weren't as complicated as I had been told, but nobody was willing to put in the time to really figure out what was going on. Once we got some answers, I started to feel better. It's an ongoing process, but I'm totally confident I'll continue to get better. Dr. Steadman listens and takes time with his patients. He educates and informs as well, to empower his patients. I am so grateful to him and his wonderful team."
