Meet Dr. Nathan Berner

At first, I was a bit hesitant when a friend told me to try a chiropractor for my shoulder trouble,” admits Dr. Nathan Berner. It was during high school athletics that Dr. Berner first discovered chiropractic. As an all district high school quarterback, he experienced pain in his throwing shoulder.

I wanted to get back on the field as soon as possible so I decided to try a chiropractor and to my amazement I was back on the field the next week.

Dr. Berner continued seeing a chiropractor through the basketball and baseball seasons and his interest in chiropractic grew. “I was particularly intrigued at how they could have such great results without the use of drugs or surgery.”

Chiropractic Education

Dr. Berner began his pre-chiropractor education at Miami (Ohio) University and graduated with a degree in Microbiology. After completing his study there, he attended Life University in Marietta, where he became the 1st student to ever achieve level 2 advanced certification relative to video adjusting and structural correction techniques of care. After meeting his wife, an East Cobb native, he decided to open his chiropractic office here.


Board Certified Orthospinologist

Dr. Berner actively teaches the Basic 1 and Basic 2 Orthospinology classes and Advanced Instrument Adjusting seminars to doctors and students from around the country in addition to speaking at various conferences. Orthospinology is a sub-specialty of the chiropractic profession, focusing on aligning the upper cervical spine. This approach uses an extremely precise 3 dimensional x-ray analysis to correct small misalignments of the first cervical vertebra, also known as the atlas.These misalignments, also known as subluxations, can cause neurological interferences to the brainstem and spinal cord.

Dr. Berner is also involved in pioneering some new MRI research on the cervical cranial junction which could be beneficial in assisting with his upper cervical approach.

Dr. Berner enjoys being the “doctor’s doctor.”  His reputation in the field shows in his care of other upper cervical practitioners as he routinely adjusts dozens of them throughout the year. He considers being entrusted with their care the highest profession compliment.

Dr. Berner met his wife Yelena while attending Life University. Together they have two sons, Kayden & Austin, and a daughter, Mila, who have both been under chiropractic care since birth. Dr. Berner and his family currently live in East Cobb and are active in the community.
