Who is Dr. Corenman?
Donald Corenman, MD, DC is one of a handful of orthopedic spine surgeons with a background in chiropractic medicine. After completing his Doctor of Chiropractic degree and residency in Chiropractic Orthopedics, Dr. Corenman was left wanting more. While his education had answered many questions about the mechanics of the spine, it had also piqued his interest in gaining a deeper understanding of the spine. As a result, he decided to continue his training to become board certified in both Chiropractic Orthopaedics and Orthopedic Surgery. Dr. Corenman has been a partner at The Steadman Clinic in Vail for over 20 years where he has had the opportunity to pursue his passion for helping both patients and professionals better understand the spine through his research and educational programs.
His educational websites and the course Lumbar Spine A-Z are the culmination of Dr. Corenman’s 30 year professional pursuit of an in-depth understanding of the spine. Participants liken his seminar to the equivalent of a “spine fellowship in a weekend” presented in a user-friendly, easy to comprehend format.
