Welcome To The Office Of
Dr. Linda N. Whitman, D.C

In practice for over 20 years, Linda N. 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.

Our Story Continues

The almost 60 year old table inherited through Dr. Van Rumpt and Dr. Whitman’s mother, Dr. Alice Nelson, finally ceased operation.

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), takes continuing education hours in nutrition, DNFT chiropractic, and other topics, annually. She is also certified to cast for Sole Support foot orthotics, the brainchild of Dr. Ed Glaser, podiatrist and engineer, based in Tennessee.

Dr. Linda works Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday each week, from 9:30-5:00. Dr. Alice, her mother, who practiced from 1958 to 2022, is now retired.

Appointments are made only by phone, which is (805) 962-4904.
