Dr. Stephanie Pittenger

Dr. Stephanie is a Board Certified Chiropractor committed to helping families achieve their full potential. She takes a "whole person" approach in chiropractic care, which means looking for the underlying causes of disease, discomfort, and pain, as opposed to just treating the symptoms. Many seemingly unrelated symptoms often arise from imbalances in the spinal column, and Dr. Stephanie will be able to determine the root of the pain and create a personalized chiropractic and wellness plan to suit each patient's individual needs. Under the supervision and care of our caring and skilled chiropractor, patients report higher functioning in all areas of their lives. Dr. Stephanie believes that through regular chiropractic care, proper nutrition and exercise everyone has the ability to heal and express their full potential.

The doctor has completed a variety of post graduate work including half of her lecture hours for her neurology diplomate. For pregnancy, she is certified in webster technique and is a member of the ICPA (International Chiropractic Pediatric Association). She is also board certified in physical therapy and uses exercises to help her patients regain strength after injury. She is a great educator and an adjunct professor of biology at Aurora University, but more than that she prides herself on teaching patients how to be healthy and stay healthy.

Dr. Stephanie graduated from Palmer College of Chiropractic in Davenport, IA in 2006. She has been in practice in both Crystal Lake and Palatine, IL and has gained a great deal of knowledge from each place. She practices a variety of techniques including diversified, gonstead, thompson, sacro-occipital technique, flexion/distraction, logan basic and activator. Her stance is that there are many wonderful techniques to removing nerve interference and people may respond differently to each one. "I will find the technique that is right for the patient, not make the patient struggle with a technique that may not be right for them"

"I have always had a passion for helping kids" she says. She has three of her own children and has been treating children with a wide variety of problems for years. Dr. Stephanie also loves treating pregnant moms. She regularly helps teach birthing classes and finds it rewarding to help ease the discomforts of pregnancy as well as being a resource for the parents. Balanced Care Chiropractic is a child friendly environment.

Dr. Stephanie is married and the proud mother of Phoenix (born 7/29/07), Zander (born 9/7/09) and Bailey (born 10/8/15). She grew up in Streamwood and always knew she wanted to return to the area to be a caregiver to the community she grew up in.
