The Health Experts
Dr. Dani Steffen, DC, MS
Chiropractor, Functional Medicine Physician, Owner
Dr. Dani began her journey in Chiropractic as an active 6 year old playing hockey and soccer. Chiropractic care helped her continue playing competitively all the way into college where she played basketball and track at FHSU. She's even a two time 5A state champion in Florida for girls basketball. But the most important reason why Dr. Dani pursued being a Chiropractor is the importance it played helping her mother battle many autoimmune conditions. The need for more conservative care to reduce inflammation and improve overall health was observed time and time again. Before her mother passed away, she decided to make it her mission to live a preventative lifestyle and "practice what she preaches".
Academically, she earned her B.S. in Health and Human Performance emphasis in Clinical Exercise Physiology and M.S. in HHP with emphasis in Movement Studies from FHSU. She then earned her DC from Cleveland University in 2018. While in school, she was active as a Research Assistant, Tutor, Clinical Teaching Assistant, and administrator in many on-campus clubs.
Before Pure Movement, she worked in a multidisciplinary clinic in Topeka and was nominated "Best Chiropractor" all 3 years. She also earned internships at the KC VA Hospital and KC Care Clinic. Currently, she is an adjunct professor at Washburn Tech teaching Anatomy & Physiology, as well as, the KCA KC-Metro President.
She has additional training in functional medicine as a soon to be board eligible DABCI (Chiropractic Internist) and DABCN (Nutritionist) provider. In addition, she has experience dry needling, acupuncture, with the ICPA (pregnancy and pediatrics), athletes, rehabilitation with physiotherapies and therapeutic exercises, and a variety of chiropractic treatments.
Dr. Dani strives to be a good listener and discuss the nuances to your health that are typically over looked. Whether it is finding practical updates to your daily living, running some unique/reasonable/informative labs, or changing your nutrition, she wants to help you feel your best.
Dr. Dani is married to Drew and has two boys, Weston and Banks. She enjoys cooking, hiking, running, going to concerts (rock music is her favorite) and watching movies.
Dr. Ana Rentas
Dr. Ana Rentas, DC is a hispanic bilingual chiropractor serving Johnson County residents. She has 10+ years experience working with patients in the healthcare field in facilities. Her dream of becoming a doctor started at a young age when her family immigrated from Santiago, Dominican Republic to the United States. She has Bachelor of Science in Pre-Medical Studies at Palm Beach Atlantic University in South Florida. She then furthered her education through the Doctor of Chiropractic degree from Cleveland Chiropractic College, Kansas City.
It was through her search for a deeper understanding of human physiology that she went on to successfully complete additional coursework in Applied Kinesiology taught by Dr. Mladenoff. This fueled her passion for soft tissue work as she went on to further studies in Functional Rehabilitation, Graston technique, and KinesioTaping. Now in private practice, she offers personalized plans for individuals or family wellness care, whole body adjustments with essential oils, and various soft tissue specialty treatments.
Dr. Ana's compassionate chiropractic care for patients stems from her own personal experience. After suffering from debilitating migraines from a fall during her childhood, Dr. Ana found relief in her 20's when a chiropractor adjusted her cervical spine. She now cares for pediatric, pregnant mommies, and adult patients after seeing the incredible results when the human body is freed from any interference that hinders it's normal and proper function. She believes the body has an amazing intrinsic capacity for self healing when it is cared for through proper nutrition, exercise, stress relief, and optimal nervous system function. Dr. Ana offers pain relief care as well as wellness maintenance care to achieve a truly balanced body.
Dr. Courtney Simon, PT, DPT, FAAOMPT
Courtney grew up in a small town where she was very active competing in both rodeo and basketball. WHile this led to her fair share of injuries, it also guided her towards the path of pursuing physical therapy. Courtney attended Oklahoma State University where she earned her Bachelors in Athletic Training in 2012. Then she graduated with her Doctorate in Physical Therapy from Wichita State University in 2018. She continued to progress her career through a three year fellowship program to become a Fellow of the American Academy of Orthopedic Manual Physical Therapists. This fellowship has improved her clinical decision making skills and helped to refine treatment plans to find the root cause of a patients pain, rather than addressing the symptoms alone. Courtney strives to educate patients on their current conditions in order to help them make progress towards healing and injury prevention. She is excited to join a multidisciplinary team and a close knit community.
