Meet Our Team

  • Dr. Steve Hannegan
    Dr. Hannegan is driven. He knows firsthand what it is like to deal with the frustration of the traditional healthcare system. After years of playing competitive baseball, including Division I college, and suffering the injuries associated with that pursuit, Dr. Hannegan became very familiar with the typical symptom-based approaches to treatment that provide little insight into the cause of an injury or its prevention. His mother's death at an early age from the complications of all the medications used to treat her battle with fibromyalgia became a turning point for Dr. Hannegan. He believed there must be a better way.

    He committed himself to learning how to help patients understand what is causing their condition, making healthcare about addressing the root cause, not just treating the symptoms. Chiropractic provided the path he was looking for. He studied biology at the University of Kentucky and went on to pursue his dream of becoming a doctor to help people live happy and healthy lives at Logan College of Chiropractic in St. Louis, Missouri. There he received his Bachelor's degree in Life Science, Master's degree in Sports Science and Rehabilitation, and Doctor of Chiropractic.


    Dr. Hannegan met his wife Christy at the University of Kentucky and moved to her hometown in Northern Kentucky, where he established Performance Chiropractic in 2011. Dr. Hannegan is dedicated to working with patients and helping them achieve their optimum health performance, so they can live the longest and healthiest, most enjoyable life possible. When injuries occur he not only strives to get you healthy again, but also has a strong desire to correct the root cause so the problem will not reoccur. He understands the desire of athletes to return to play and the value of recovering from injuries as quickly as possible. He believes there is a cause for everything and by finding and fixing the cause, he keeps the patient on the path to true health performance.
