Welcome to the website!
Are you looking for a unique, gentle, and effective technique for pain relief? Something that can also contribute to improving your overall wellness and quality of life? We may have what you are seeking!
In practice for a little more than a decade, Linda Nelson Whitman, D.C. exclusively uses Directional Non-Force Technique (DNFT), as taught and copyrighted by Dr. Christopher John, D.C., of Beverly Hills, CA. A brainchild of Dr. Richard Van Rumpt, D.C., now deceased, DNFT chiropractic has been further developed and refined by Dr. John and from the input of other qualified practitioners of the technique.
DNFT chiropractic is a very low-force chiropractic technique safe for all ages and most diagnoses. It has safely and effectively been used on post-surgical cases, including fusions, and on those trying to avoid surgery. It is entirely hands-on, with no instrumentation used, no twisting, popping, cracking, or sudden movements which can sometimes frighten a patient away from other chiropractic techniques. Dr. Whitman has cared for patients from four months old to 80-years-plus.
The Adjusting Room
Custom adjusting table
The table pictured here was designed by Dr. Linda Whitman's mother, Dr. Alice Nelson, D.C., and is reported to be quite comfortable by most patients.
The office is designed to be cozy and relaxing, and every effort is made to help patients feel cared-for, not just physically, but as fellow human beings loved into being by a great Creator.
We are still learning so much about the human body. Dr. Linda (as she is often called), and her mother (often called Dr. Alice), take continuing education hours in nutrition, DNFT chiropractic, and other topics, annually. Dr. Linda is also certified to cast for Sole Supports foot orthotics, the brainchild of Dr. Ed Glaser, podiatristand engineer, based in Tenessee.
Dr. Linda works Monday, Wednesday, and Friday each week, from 9:30-5:30, and Dr. Alice works in the same office Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday 9:30-3:30 (being past retirement age, but still actively working!). Appointments are made only by phone, which is (805)962-4904, unless other arrangements are made. Questions can be emailed to: firstname.lastname@example.org. Please put DNFT in the subject line.
