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.
