Even specialists specialize. One orthopedic surgeon might do nothing but hip surgeries, while another does nothing but knees. If you want the best possible care, it’s critical to match your medical need with the doctor who truly specializes in treating it.

Dr. Steinecker says...

Dr. Steinecker had a private practice in Neurology in Port Angeles, Washington for seven years before she went with her husband David and two sons to Israel to complete a fellowship in Developmental Pediatrics for two years.  Upon her return she spent four additional months of training in Developmental Pediatrics at the Child Development Unit at the University of Colorado School of Medicine, before returning to the Northwest in 1997 and opening her current practice emphasizing Holistic Pediatrics.

 Dr. Steinecker went "back to basics," in using her highly skilled and trained hands with every patient.  She often states:  "I went from using Cranial Osteopathy as a last resort, in difficult and failing cases, to a first-line treatment for all my patients.  Often, patients no longer need medication and can avoid surgery." 

Dr. Steinecker earned her undergraduate degree with high honors in Anthropology and Psychology in 1972 from the City University of New York.  She went on to graduate from the West Virginia School of Osteopathic Medicine in 1980 where she first learned Cranial Sacral, osteopathic hands-on therapy. I was lucky enough to study, my hands under his, with Dr. Thomas A. Schooley, the prodigious student of Dr. Sutherland who discovered the cranial-sacral mechanism.  Dr. Sutherland was an original student of Dr. A. T. Still.

After a general medical education, including studying Osteopathic Practice and Principles, Dr. Steinecker did a rotating internship in Long Beach, California and a year of surgery residency at Detroit Osteopathic Hospital.  She then changed her focus to Neurology and while Chief Resident at Wayne State University, she began publishing her own original medical scientific research.   She was awarded a National Institute of Health Research Training Grant  by the Primate Center at the University of Washington to do a research fellowship on peripheral nerve injuries.  During that time she supervised medical residents in the Multiple Sclerosis Clinic and saw patients in the Neurology and Rehabilitation Medicine Clinics at the University of Washington Hospital.  Dr. Steinecker then sub-specialized in developmental pediatrics with additional training at the Rifka Zief Child Development Unit in Israel, and the University of Colorado Child Development Unit at the Children's Hospital of Denver.
