Meet the Doctors & Staff


Dr. Linda Gerner, D.C., FICPA

Graduate of Life Chiropractic College West in Hayward, CA
Post-Graduate Fellow in Pediatrics/Obstetrics
Certified in the Webster Technique
Trained doula (birth coach)
Past Personal Trainer

Dr. Gerner earned her Fellowship in Pediatrics through the International Chiropractic Pediatrics Association (ICPA) and specializes in pre/post natal care and pediatric; including advanced cranial adjusting techniques.

Dr. Gerner is certified in the Webster Technique. This technique is a specific Chiropractic analysis and adjustment which decreases the structural and ligamental restrictions of the pelvis; effectively giving the baby more room to move as he/she does naturally.  Sacral and pelvic subluxation often contributes to difficult labor (dystocia) for mom.   Releasing pelvic subluxation restores neurobiomechanical functioning, and allows for increased space for the baby, a more comfortable labor for mom, and much safer birth for the baby.

Dr. Gerner relocated from Santa Cruz in January of 2009 and has settled in the Davis community with her husband, David, and their 3 children. She is very actively involved with the local birth community, collaborating with midwives and doulas to provide supportive pre and post-partum care.  She is a member and fellow of the International Chiropractic Pediatric Association (ICPA) and is continually seeking advanced education in neurology, prenatal and pediatric care. She has been an adjunct instructor at Life Chiropractic College West. At any given day in practice, many pregnant moms and wide-grinned children are welcomed through our doors.
