I'M DR. KIMBRA RUNYAN, FOUNDER & CEO OF FUNCTION CO.
& I’m here to flip the script on what it means to “go to the chiropractor”.
I HELP YOU BECAUSE I'VE BEEN YOU
Before the age of 17 I experienced pain that kept me from continuing gymnastics, playing volleyball, and walking my dog. I understand the frustration of your body limiting you from participating in your favorite sports, exercises, or activities. I make a point to treat my patients the way I wish I was treated.
WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT
Evidence based, patient centered care & a treatment plan tailored exactly for you. Together we will help you feel & function better so you can get back to your favorite fitness classes & exercises.
EDUCATION & TECHNIQUES
I’m a licensed chiropractic physician and certified acupuncturist. I earned my Bachelor of Science in Biology degree from Lewis University and then went on to earn my Doctor of Chiropractic degree and acupuncture certification from Logan University. I firmly believe that since every person is different, they deserve to receive individualized care to help them reach their highest level of functionality.
I am certified in and practice the following techniques: Diversified, Thompson, Webster Technique, Acupuncture, IASTM- Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Method, ART- Active Release Technique, Activator, and Logan Basic.

The 'why' behind Function Co.
IT'S ABOUT MORE THAN JUST YOUR PAIN & SYMPTOMS
In June 2021, after weeks of racking my brain regarding what I should name my newly rebranded practice, something kept coming to mind. The name should not solely represent how you're feeling, but rather how the body is functioning as a whole. This philosophy is what is known as the ‘mind-body connection.’
Put very simply, the mind-body connection means how you think can affect how you feel, and how you feel can affect how you think. For example, if you’re under constant stress, you will most likely experience more muscle tension, pain, digestion complaints, or headaches. And vice versa, if you constantly experience physical pain, there is a high chance you’ll experience more stress, anxiety, and depression.
While pain is important to note, it is never the only thing to address. Better results and quicker healing times come from taking into consideration your: movement patterns, stress, posture, anxiety, fitness routine, diet, and activities of daily life.
Since everything in the body is connected and works together, the goal at Function Co. is to help you move, think, and feel better by treating you as a whole.
