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.

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 Chamberlain University and Washburn Tech teaching Anatomy & Physiology, Instructor at Wellspring School for Allied Health, and 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. Courtney Simon, PT, DPT, FAAOMPT

Physical Therapist

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.
