Dr. Meghan Knutson is an Iowa native, growing up right here in the Des Moines area. Her journey with chiropractic began at the young age of 10 when she had a bad fall that resulted in a lot of back pain. Dr. Meghan’s interest in chiropractic quickly grew as she began to recover and get back to her energetic healthy self. With a strong interest in science, how the human body worked, and helping others; Dr. Meghan soon realized this was her calling. After graduating from Ankeny High School, she headed to Kirksville, Missouri to attend Truman State University. There, she received her Bachelor’s degree in Biology. From Truman, she moved farther south to Chesterfield, Missouri to attend Logan University’s College of Chiropractic. Dr. Meghan’s love and interest in health grew stronger as she enrolled in their Master’s in Nutrition and Human Performance program. During her time at Logan, she attended many seminars outside of class in Applied Kinesiology, nutrition, and acupuncture. Dr. Meghan graduated from Logan with a Bachelor’s degree in Life Science, a Doctorate in Chiropractic, a Master’s degree in Nutrition, and certification in acupuncture. In the time since she graduated from school, she has also completed coursework in functional medicine and is a Certified Functional Medicine Practitioner.
In her free time, Dr. Meghan lives out the lifestyle she encourages for her patients by staying active. She loves spending her weekends biking, experimenting with new recipes and enjoys the challenge of making any dish into something healthy and nutritious.
