Dr. Steve Sniadach, MD started his career as a respiratory therapist in 1975. He decided to further his studies with a Bachelors degree in biology from the University of Maryland. In 1983, Dr. Sniadach graduated from the University of Maryland with a Medical degree. Dr. Sniadach then spent the next four years completing two different residencies. He completed his surgical residency at Sinai hospital in Baltimore, Maryland and then went on to complete an Anesthesia residency at the Monmouth Medical Center in New Jersey. From 1986-2011, Dr. Sniadach worked as a general anesthesiologist and pain medicine physician for Kaiser Permanente in Denver. Dr. Sniadach was chairman of the anesthesia department of Saint Joseph hospital for 14 years and director of Anesthesia education for 23 years. He received outstanding teaching and doctor awards during his career. Dr. Sniadach has spent the last 25 years treating chronic back pain with lumbar epidural steroid injections (LESI) and trigger point injections. Dr. Sniadach realized early on that the LESI’s were effective; however the pain seemed to return after 3-5 months. This led Dr. Sniadach to do research into the effects of an anti-inflamatory diet and alternative methods of treating back pain. He recently earned the Cenegenics Age Management Medicine certificate. He continues to council chronic pain patients about the benefits of a healthy diet and the effects that it can have on lowering pain. Dr. Sniadach is thrilled to become part of the Longmont Spine and Physical Medicine team. He has not only been a patient at the center in Longmont, but has been a true advocate of the rehabilitation protocols used in this facility.
Hello! My name is Lindsey, and I am a Doctor of Physical Therapy. I have been a provider with Longmont Spine and Physical Medicine since 2018. I am originally from Hastings, NE but I’ve called Colorado home since 2007.
My interest in physical therapy stems from my experiences as a long-time athlete. Experiencing injury and recovery as well as the benefits of intentional strength and conditioning set me on a clear path to help others take care of, heal, and enjoy their bodies as much as possible. My educational journey to support these interests started by pursuing an Associate’s degree at Western Iowa Tech and securing licensure as a Physical Therapist Assistant in 2003. With this license, I worked for 7 years in both the inpatient hospital and outpatient settings. While working as a PTA, I continued my education and graduated from the University of Wyoming with a Bachelor’s of Science in Kinesiology & Health Promotion in 2007 and then went on to earn a Doctorate of Physical Therapy from Regis University in 2010.
Throughout my years of education, I continued to work, gaining crucial experience and opportunity to constantly apply what I was studying. Because of this, I have 20 years of consistent experience in the field of physical therapy and hold certifications in functional dry needling and cupping therapy. I specialize and thrive in caring for patients of all ages and abilities, including those with low back pain, shoulder injuries, joint replacements, balance difficulties, and coaching athletes who need help with returning to sport as well as reaching new performance goals. In my spare time, you can find me conquering a long hike, training for a race/competition, or cheering on my family members in one of their endeavors.
