Wanting to Make a Difference
Steve Runnels, D.C. worked in a steel foundry for a couple of years before realizing that a job, he was easily replaceable at, wasn’t what he wanted to do with his life. “My parents and grandparents always told me that if I didn’t want to have to work a day in my life, I should find a profession that incorporated my joys”.
A lifelong interest in weight lifting, sports and nutrition led him to investigate areas like kinesiology and physical therapy. At this time he recalled seeing a chiropractor for a knee injury from wrestling. Chiropractic allowed him to help people stay active using his hands and his mind.
To achieve his Doctor of Chiropractic, Dr. Runnels attended Cleveland Chiropractic College in Kansas City. While there, he was involved in athletics and learned how to restore people’s range of motion so they could function and not have to give up the sports they love to participate in.
Since that time, he’s taken numerous continuing education courses on topics such as meridian therapy and extremity adjusting.
Living a Busy, Family-Oriented Life
An active person, Dr. Runnels wakes up at 5:45 each morning and works out in his home gym with his two older children. He and his wife Stacy have three children: McKinley, who participates in competitive cheerleading and tumbling at Infiniti Athletics; Camden, a state champion wrestler and Teghan, who is involved with tumbling and Kid Cheer.
Dr. Runnels started a wrestling club in Cassville, and does Friday night weigh-ins at his office, while Saturdays are spent at wrestling tournaments. He and his close-knit family enjoy biking, playing games, going to church on Sunday and spending time together.
Runnels Chiropractic is a member of the Bentonville Chamber of Commerce and member of the Arkansas Chiropractic Physicians Association.
