Making Life More Comfortable

Take a moment to tour an engineering masterpiece: the human body. Pretend you are Alice, so tiny you can climb among the muscles, nerves, bones and ligaments that make up the very core of your body. Crawl down the vertebrae that encase and protect the spinal cord, from the cervical spine to the thoracic area to the lumbar region. Note the rubbery white discs. Note the informational superhighway. Jump in the car of an electronic impulse from your brain, to your spinal cord, to the spinal roots exiting your spinal vertebrae, to the nerves traveling to your heart, lungs, stomach, liver, to the muscles allowing your hand to move that mouse. The human body is a magnificent, exciting creation.

We will be upfront and honest, and walk side by side with you to improved health.

Dr. Steven J. Waldo

Dr. Waldo, DC, Cert. MDT, DACO, CSCS, his lovely bride Katie, and their three daughters live in Elgin, IL. Steve is the youngest of 3 children and grew up in the northern suburbs of Illinois. He has gained numerous academic and athletic awards in baseball at the high school and collegiate level. He had the privilege to extend his education by performing his internship at the Berto Center with the Chicago Bulls. Steve graduated with a BA from Trinity International University and a minor in Coaching and Fitness Specialist in 1999. Steve was the recipient of The National Major of Year Award from the National Academy of Sports and Physical Education; he was the captain of his college baseball team at Trinity and was asked to compete in many major league scouting events but his professional dreams fell short. Steve thanks God for that unanswered prayer because he would not have met his wonderful wife and furthered his educational career to becoming a doctor.

After graduation, Steve became a Certified Strength and Conditioning Specialist from the NSCA and was hired at College Park Athletic Club in Deerfield, IL as a fitness specialist. He worked there for 3 years for many junior high, high school and collegiate athletes as well as the public, helping them attain their fitness goals. At this point, Steve realized that he wanted to help people more than he was already doing. He entered National University of Health Sciences (formerly National College of Chiropractic) in Lombard, IL and earned a BS in Human Biology and graduated December of 2005 as a Doctor of Chiropractic. Dr. Waldo is a member of the American Chiropractic Association (ACA), Illinois Chiropractic Society, the National Strength and Conditioning Association. In early 2009 he began his two-year studies in Orthopedics and then earned his Diplomate from the Academy of Chiropractic Orthopedists. Since its inception in 1978 there are approximately 1,000 DACO and/or DABCO’s in the chiropractic profession. Visit www.dcorthoacademy.com for more information.

It comes with great honor to be part of the Professional Sports Care (PSC) Team founded by Dr. Tom LaFountain in 1997. PSC utilizes chiropractic physicians throughout the United States, including Hawaii, to provide services at all 49 PGA Tour Events and 27 Champions Tour Events, including Web.com. Through the course work held at TPC Sawgrass to become a part of the staff, Dr. Waldo has learned the skills, experience, and understanding to efficiently evaluate, treat, and rehabilitate professional and amateur golfers conditions. Dr. Waldo is very excited to combine his career with his passion for golf.

Dr. Waldo is part of the 1% of chiropractors in the world of whom are fully credentialed in McKenzie Therapy:  Mechanical Diagnosis & Therapy (MDT).  (more info coming soon…)

Dr. Waldo’s intensity and focus on life inspire his patients. His insatiable desire for knowledge and learning only improve on his already professional demeanor.
