Hi, my name is Dustie Steeves, and I am a chiropractor for Human Integrated Performance .
I knew at a young age that I wanted to be in some sort of health care profession. While swimming for the University of Calgary while in school for my Bachelors degree in Kinesiology, I had hurt my back and almost quit swimming due to the pain. Chiropractic was what got me back training and in the pool again. It was at this point in my life that I knew chiropractic was what I was meant to do. I graduated from Northwestern Health Sciences University with my Doctorate in Chiropractic in 2007. I moved back to Alberta to be close to my family afterwards.
While I love treating my human patients, I felt the need for another challenge and decided to further my education to another group of patients…animals! I have always had a passion for animals and had grown up with large dogs. As a child I was lucky enough to take horseback riding lessons in a small town in Saskatchewan near where I grew up. I have never owned a horse but am working on that. I completed my Animal Chiropractic through the Veterinary Chiropractic Learning Center in 2018. I am also certified by the College of Animal Chiropractors, Inc.(CoAC), formerly the ‘American Canadian College of Animal Chiropractic’. I am currently in the process of creating a continuing education seminar to teach chiropractors and veterinarians who are certified in Animal Chiropractic instrument assisted soft tissue techniques.
Whether you are a human or an animal patient, a typical visit with me will include muscle and fascia work as well as any necessary adjustments, stretches and exercises needed to help correct the underlying problem.
When I am not working I like to travel and spend time with my family. Some of my favourite activities include scuba diving, yoga, boxing, mountain biking, paddle boarding and running.
I am truly excited to be a part of the Human Integrated Performance team. I have had the pleasure of working alongside Nic Allen for 10.5 years of my career so far. I look forward to being a part of your team and help you achieve your goals, whether that be competing at a professional level or just being able to do your daily activities pain free.
