About Dr. Steven Lujan
Meet the Doctor
Dr. Steven Lujan was born in Las Cruces, New Mexico. His family later moved to Phoenix, Arizona and settled into the urban area of Ahwatukee where he grew up. Dr. Steven attended Mountain Pointe High School and soon thereafter attended Arizona State University where he earned his Bachelor of Science Degree in Kinesiology.
Once Dr. Steven graduated from Arizona State, he began working at a chiropractic clinic as a chiropractic assistant and soon attained a certification as a Fascial Stretch Therapist. Dr. Steven worked as an assistant for several years where he learned much about patient care and continued to hone his manual, therapeutic skills before deciding to attend chiropractic college.
While attending Southern California University of Health Sciences for chiropractic school, Dr. Steven focused on sports medicine and remained involved in school related activities. Several of the university related events which Dr. Steven participated in as a clinical intern included: state power-lifting championships; softball tournaments; regular health fairs; and he also participated in the AIDS Life/Cycle - an event where students and university faculty members/doctors followed and offered treatment to cyclists during their week-long ride from San Francisco to Los Angeles. He also remained involved regularly in campus organizations and clubs where he served as his class representative, became a professional student coach and mentor to first year students, and served as the president for one of the university’s sports medicine clubs, the Sports Injury Council.
Upon graduating, Dr. Steven was honored with a nomination for the President’s Leadership Award, which is granted to those who have demonstrated a strong leadership ethic on campus and applied enthusiasm for the healthcare profession, along with an exceptional aptitude for chiropractic, and demonstrated life-long learning skills. Dr. Steven graduated with honors (Cum Laude) in December of 2020.
Why did Dr. Steven choose chiropractic as a profession?
Dr. Steven has been experiencing the benefits of chiropractic care since he was ten years old. He was involved in sports from a young age and continued to be active through high school where he suffered several injuries. Chiropractic treatment allowed him to continuously return to play and compete at a high level. Dr. Steven also suffered from non-sport related injuries throughout his early adult life which included disc injuries, chronic headaches, and nerve-related conditions. Seeking continuous care from a chiropractor allowed him live pain-free and to overcome these injuries and the obstacles they can create in life. Dr. Steven truly believes that everyone deserves to live life pain-free and to their fullest potential and understands that physical health is a major component to reach one’s greatest capabilities.
Healing others through a holistic approach is a passion which Dr. Steven strongly believes in. He understands that the body is only one component of personal health and that in order to reach one’s full potential, mental and spiritual health must be maintained. Although the health components of mind and spirit are outside Dr. Steven’s scope-of-practice, he is very aware of the connection they play to our physical health and he has a great appreciation for their relationship in order to attain a healthy lifestyle.
Dr. Steven truly appreciates the body’s amazing ability to heal itself and he believes he is simply here to facilitate this incredible healing process with his manual, therapeutic skills. He utilizes an evidence-based approach to treatment and stays up-to-date with current literature and treatment techniques so that you get the latest and best treatment methods.
