A urinalysis screening is a set of tests that can detect common diseases and abnormalities that might require follow-up investigation and additional testing. Often, substances such as protein or glucose will begin to appear in the urine before people are aware they have a
Our digital urinalysis screening can detect and/or measure several substances in the urine, such as byproducts of normal and abnormal metabolism, cells, cellular fragments and bacteria.

Urine is produced by the kidneys. The kidneys filter wastes out of the blood, help regulate the amount of water in the body, and conserve proteins, electrolytes, and other compounds that the body can reuse.
At Schneider Clinic, we strive to offer state-of-the-art technology to our patients. The digital urinalysis system reads the urine sample and creates a detailed report. This advanced computer analaysis can help us detect:
My name is Cindy and I came to the Schneider clinic seeking help for tension headaches that I suffered from for many years. I was first introduced to Dr. Schneider by a “Dear Neighbor” Letter offering his services. I was immediately drawn to this letter as I noticed that Schneider Clinic specializes in headaches as well as back pain.
My headaches affected a huge part of my life. I had difficulty concentrating at work and began to make errors. Also, I had to immediately go home from work to sit the rest of the day and night to find relief from my headaches. Essentially, I was not able to do the things that I loved to do or able to live the kind of life that I wanted to. So I sought help.
I first went to another Chiropractor, then my Family Physician, and finally a Neurologist. Only to find that over-the-counter medications, prescription medications, treatments, tests etc. did not provide relief for my headaches. I have always been a believer in chiropractic care (been treated on-and-off for 26 years), however, was not getting the results or relief that I wanted.
Upon my first visit with therapy and a manipulation at Schneider clinic, I found relief from my headaches! In three weeks time I became headache free and have continued to be. My husband and friends began to notice that I had a more positive attitude, more energy, and also more of an ability to be free to focus. I felt so good that by the third week, I decided to re-decorate/re-wallpaper my bathroom which had been an endeavor of mine for some time!
If I had not come to Schneider Clinic, I would still be suffering from headaches, spending a lot of time and money on medical bills, and still finding no answers or relief. I am very thankful for the services and care that I received at Schneider Clinic. It has changed my life and I am grateful for that!~Cindy
The trigger point therapy primarily involves four muscle groups:
Splenius - This is composed of two individual muscles - Splenius Capitis and the Splenius Cervicis, both running from the upper back to either the skull base (capitis) or the upper cervical vertebrae (cervicis). Trigger points involve pain that may traverse to the head towards the back of the eye to the topmost part of the head.
Causes for Headaches and Migraines - A group of 4 small muscles which functions to maintain proper movement and positioning of teh skull base and first cervical vertebra. The whole head may hurt similar to that of a migraine, wherein pain feels like it's inside the head extending to the back of the eye and surrounding the forehead.
SCM or Sternocleidomastoid - This runs from the skull base, right behind the ear and going down to the side of the neck until the top of the breastbone. The effects are broad which include referred pain deep in the eye or earaches, dizziness, nausea, visual disturbances and imbalances.
Trapezius - A huge and flat muscle located in the upper and mid back, where the trigger point sits on the very top of the muscle, referring pain to the temple and back of the head, which may lead to jaw and tooth pain as well.
Headaches may keep coming back affecting the trigger points, but if you would be cautious of them and observe a healthier lifestyle, headaches and the great discomfort they bring can be kept at bay. Here are some tips to avoid headache triggers:

When I first came to the office, I had migraines, PMS headaches and lower back pain all the time especially when I slept. My ribs had hurt me for a couple of years that it made it hard to breath. My heels hurt to walk for six or seven months. I also had stomach and bowel problems (colitis) for 20 years. I felt like I was having a nervous breakdown and didn't know what to do. A friend suggested that I try Dr. Schneider but I was scared. Once I began Activator treatments, the things began to change and I knew I wasn't going to get hurt. My medical doctor gave me pain pills..
My name is Marcie and at this time I am retired, but in the past I have worked in the medical field and also performed marionette shows for school children. Around twenty years ago I was involved in a motor vehicle accident with a drunk driver traveling at a high rate of speed. I was knocked unconscious and was sent to the hospital. At the hospital I was x-rayed and then sent home. A short time later I went back to the emergency room and this time I was admitted. My treatments at the hospital included traction and physical therapy but even after that I was still in so much pain...
I had headaches daily before coming to see Dr. Schneider. My wife Melba encouraged me to come in with her for her appointment to see Dr. Schneider. She had been seeing Dr. Schneider for her lower back pain and learned that Dr. Schneider can also help with headaches! Dr. Schneider recommended that I receive an adjustment of the spine to help my headaches. He also recommended that I start Decompression Therapy on my Neck to help treat my pain and discomfort. Other Doctors that I have been to for my headaches have only prescribed pain medication...
