Dr. Alan Nathans
I am a graduate of Life University in Marietta, Ga., and have been in private practice since 1999. I am proud to have been honored with the Family Practice Excellence Award for my dedication to family health care. I am a lecturer and chiropractic innovator. I am a certified Metabolic Typing Adviser, a certified Functional Diagnostic Nutritionist, and I am certified in Bio-Nutritional Care related to autism spectrum disorders. And I have accumulated hundreds of post graduate hours in the field of functional medicine.
From a very young age, I realized I felt my very best when I was helping others. I knew I could contribute the most to the world if I were involved in a health related field.
I decided to become a Chiropractor after my own life was changed by a Chiropractic experience as a teenager. One night I found myself in excruciating pain and unable to move. My father said, “I’ll take you to my chiropractor in the morning”. I didn’t even ask what a Chiropractor was. And at that time I didn’t care. After several adjustments I was able to function normally, and I’ve always remembered that experience.
Many years after my own first chiropractic adjustment, I decided to go back to college. At the age of 33, I graduated from Chiropractic school and moved to Jacksonville, FL to begin practicing Chiropractic.
Now with three daughters, Rebecca, Arin and Morgan, I am proud to say they each received their first adjustment on the day they were born. Rebecca, Arin and Morgan, like other children worldwide, receive chiropractic wellness care, setting the stage for a healthy spine for future growth and development. Through caring for my patients as well as my own family, I have seen the amazing results that chiropractic can provide not only for adults and teens, but also for infants, children and the elderly.
Today our practice members include 2nd, 3rd, and 4th generations of families who get adjusted by making it part of their routine instead of waiting until they just can’t “take the pain anymore”. Our practice is focused on serving people. We are dedicated to educating our community on how to live active, healthy lives without limits now and in the future.
I am grateful to you for visiting our website, and I look forward to helping you and your family to live your 100 Year Lifestyle.

My name is Nicole, and I’m a front office assistant here at Alan Nathans Family Chiropractic. I was born and raised here in Jacksonville, and I am married to a wonderful man named Zac. In addition to working with Dr. Nathans, I also work as a residential counselor in the social services field. I have an extensive background in the alternative health care industry, and I think chiropractic is such a neat form of medicine in that it allows the body to heal itself. Our bodies are designed to be healthy, and chiropractic helps to restore health by aligning the spine and encouraging proper nerve flow. I had the great pleasure of working for Dr. Nathans a couple of years ago, and I look forward to continuing to witness success stories of the patients who walk through the door! I’m honored to be able to serve our patients and to be a part of the ANFC team!

Jacob Hamacher is passionate about fitness. He grew up playing competitive baseball and basketball. After high school he looked for something to fill the void of competitive sports. After dabbling in running and circuit training at the local gym, he wandered into a CrossFit box. Once he completed his first workout, there was no going back. The mental and physical push, group atmosphere, community, and competitive vibe is what separates this sport from others.
After becoming a CrossFit Trainer, Jacob soon realized the importance for proper movement mechanics and technique in order to help keep the body healthy and injury free. Soft tissue health plays a huge factor in mobility, joint health, and proper nerve flow. Jacob became a massage therapist in order to assist people in achieving optimal movement mechanics and eliminate pain.
Jacob is also a huge advocate for chiropractic care. As a massage therapist he addresses soft tissue on a daily basis. If the structure underneath, or the signals coming to the muscles are affected, how can the muscle or soft tissue function properly? Consistent chiropractic care, along with massage therapy, is such a harmonious combination for health.
