Todd Ruland D.C.
Personal Philosophy: "True health can be attained only by restoring normal function to the body. Three interrelated parts of the body, physical, mental and chemical must be functioning normally for complete health."
Dr. Ruland's dedication to this philosophy is evident in his seven years as a private practitioner at our North Fort Worth location as well as
time spent teaching at Parker College of Chiropractic. He is a member of the American Chiropractic Association, the Texas Chiropractic Association, and the Council on Sport Injuries.
"It is impossible for one person to keep up on all the discoveries made in chiropractic medicine. That's why professional memberships are so important. When I meet other doctors, we can share information on the latest procedures and materials. The more I know, the better I can serve my patients."
Dr. Ruland is concerned about the community and is involved in local schools' academics and sports programs. His concern also shows in his membership in the Northeast Chamber of Commerce and various awards from the International Jaycees.

ANDREW RENAUD D.C., B.S.
Personal Philosophy: “Through the chiropractic adjustment, the body can reconnect with itself in a way that can help restore its natural ability to heal itself. Chiropractic care is unique in a way that with simple corrections to the spine it can increase body function and improve the overall quality of life.”
Dr. Renaud’s journey into Chiropractic began during college.
“Throughout my time in high school and college, I always knew I wanted to serve people in the health field. It wasn’t until my senior year in college that I was introduced to the chiropractic profession. I worked for a chiropractor who showed me, that people can be healed without medications and through alternative healthcare methods.”
When Dr. Renaud was 18 years old, he suffered an injury to his spine called a disc herniation. After receiving care from a chiropractor, he finally saw relief. This is when he realized he wanted to be a Chiropractor.
“In college I suffered an injury to the spine called an acute disc herniation at two levels of my spine. This happens when there is too much stress on the spine, thus causing the disc in between each vertebrae to bulge out and press on the spinal cord resulting in inflammation surrounding the nerves. There were times that the pain was too unbearable to even move. I was being told that I should be taking pain killers and muscle relaxors to keep my pain away and there was nothing I could do to help the herniation. Being young and physically active, this was heartbreaking to me. It wasn’t until after receiving my first chiropractic adjustment, that I saw true relief from this debilitating pain. The chiropractor that I worked for removed the stress on my spine and showed me ways to help keep my spine healthy without medication. This personal experience with the true healing ability of chiropractic care was what opened my mind to becoming a chiropractor myself, and to be able to relate with many people who receive chiropractic care as well.”
Dr. Renaud remains committed to his philosophy and passion in Chiropractic. This year Dr. Renaud joined the Texas Chiropractic Association in an aspiration to work with his peers to further himself in the Chiropractic profession.

Katie Gerber D.C.
Personal Philosophy: “We are our own best medicine. Your body has the wonderful ability to heal itself. All functions of the body are controlled by the nervous system, when we remove stress from the nervous system, we flourish and remain well. The better we take care of ourselves the better our bodies can thrive.
Spinal health is instrumental to thriving as our spine is the home for all of our nerves. Chiropractic allows us to stay moving, healthy and constantly growing.”
Dr. Katie’s chiropractic journey started in high school…
“After years of gymnastics and cheerleading, my shoulder and low back caused me to miss a lot of sleep. When I started seeing my chiropractor in high school, I discovered the many benefits of chiropractic that extended beyond pain relief. As I started talking to other people about my experiences, I realized there were many people who needed the same care.”
When Dr. Katie was in chiropractic school, she was able to see the benefits first hand when she was in a car accident that left her with a broken back, leg, and herniated discs.
“My chiropractor helped me starting immediately after my accident, and long after my brace was off. I already knew I was excited to graduate and start helping people get well, but it was at this time that I became passionate about how strong our bodies are when we care for them properly. Since healing from the accident, I have enjoyed sharing the benefits of chiropractic with people, and allowing them to become healthier and more adaptable. ”
Dr. Katie loves to learn more about chiropractic and wellness and attends seminars in order to further her education. She also enjoys teaching kids and new moms about health and preventative care.
