Dr. Steve Runnels graduated from Cleveland Chiropractic College and began practicing in 2001. His wife Stacy is originally from Cassville, and they would often visit and spend time at the lake. Dr. Runnels soon fell in love with the small-town feel of the area, and they moved there in 2005. After practicing for more than 15 years, he decided to open Runnels Chiropractic in Bentonville, seeing all ages of people who want to get out of pain and reach the highest levels of function and performance.
Our Practice Philosophy
As a chiropractor, Dr. Runnels focus is on relieving pressure that is placed upon the nerves of the body. A subluxation, which is when one bone that is adjacent to another moves out of place. Subluxations cause soft tissue damage therefore causing swelling. This swelling of tissue applies pressure to the nerves decreasing the communication process from the brain and the matter to which it connects (muscles, reflex, sensory, organs). Removing these subluxations will allow your body to operate optimally allowing you to enjoy maximum health.
Help for an Array of Concerns
Over our many years in practice, we’ve had the privilege of impacting numerous lives, treating a broad variety of issues through chiropractic care. Dr. Runnels had a 12-year-old patient who had problems with bed-wetting. After being adjusted, she was able to have sleepovers at her friends’ houses without worrying about the embarrassment of being unable to control her bladder.
Patients who have had seizures, saw their episodes decrease in intensity and frequency. One patient in particular had their seizure cease within a couple of minutes after being brought in by a loved one; they were able to avoid going to the hospital for a costly, time consuming visit which would tend to leave them “hung over”, for the rest of the day, due to side effects from medications. Those with debilitating headaches and migraines have gone from, not being able to function during the day, to finding relief and staying well.
