Dr. Brandon Yuenger is a physical therapist licensed in the state of Michigan and is Certified in Integrative Dry Needling and a Certified Nutritional Physical Therapist.  He started Step Forward Wellness during the COVID-19 pandemic when he realized his skills for helping people find relief from chronic pain did not require the client to be with him in the clinic.  Initial successes with guiding patients to a pain free state using meditation, breath work, mindfulness and movement via telehealth inspired him to pursue private practice in order to shed the restrictions of the western medical system and focus on providing the best care possible.

With over a decade of experience, Dr. Yuenger's in clinic treatment strategy has become based on integrating physical and metaphysical modalities to help people who struggle to find relief in our medical system find relief and to help them understand why and how they can feel better.  These modalities include:

Dry Needling

Energy Medicine

Sensory Integration

Craniosacral Therapy

Acupressure

Joint Mobilization

Therapeutic Yoga

Feldenkrais Method

Muscle Energy Technique

Myofascial Release

Postural Restoration

Therapeutic Listening

HVLA Thrust

Strain Counter-strain

Lymphatic Drainage

Visceral Mobilization

Utilizing these strategies, he helps client's find a calm body and mind and teaches them to do it themselves so eventually they no longer need treatment.  Independence is the name of the game and as much as he loves working with clients, graduation day is beautiful moment.  If you want to try some of the strategies for yourself, click the YouTube icon below and try some of the simple exercises for yourself.  Who knows, maybe you can find relief for yourself today?
