Meet Your Advocates

Dr. Alan Nathans


A graduate of Life University (Marietta, GA) and in private practice since 1999. I’m proud of being honored with the Family Practice Excellence Award for my dedication to family health care. My credentials include:

  • Lecturer & Chiropractic Innovator
  • Certified, Metabolic Typing Advisor
  • Certified, Functional Diagnostic Nutritionist
  • Certified, Bio-Nutritional Care related to autism spectrum disorders
  • Accumulation of hundreds of post-graduate hours in the field of Functional Medicine

From a young age, I realized I felt my very best when I was helping others, which led me to recognize I wanted to contribute the most to the world through involvement in a health-related field.

I pursued Chiropractic Medicine after an experience that changed my own life as a teenager when 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 know what a Chiropractor was, and at that time, I didn’t care. After a few chiropractic adjustments, I functioned normally, and this experience guided me into my career.

Many years after that first chiropractic adjustment, I decided to go back to college at age 28 and I graduated from Chiropractic school in 1999 and moved with my wife to Jacksonville, FL, to begin my professional practice.

My three daughters – Rebecca, Arin, and Morgan – each received their first adjustment on the day they were born. Like other children worldwide, they continued to receive chiropractic wellness care, setting the stage for a healthy spine for future growth and development. Through caring for my patients and my own family, I’ve seen the amazing results that Chiropractic Medicine can provide for every stage of life – infants, children, teens, adults, and the elderly.

Today, Alan Nathans Family Chiropractic serves the second, third, and fourth generations of families whose adjustments are routine instead of waiting for the pain to set in or become a crisis. Focused on serving people, we educate our community on how to live active, healthy lives without limits now and in the future.

Please know, I’m grateful to you for visiting our website, and I look forward to helping you and your family to live your best 100 Year Lifestyle now!

Office Manager

I was 40 years old and found myself battling with severe low back pain & sciatica. I couldn’t ride in a car or sit in a chair longer than 10 minutes. The pain brought me to tears.  I went to the doctor. They took X-Rays and I was told that I had degenerative disc disease. The doctor said that was just a fancy word for arthritis and prescribed me pain pills, muscle relaxers & anti-inflammatories. I asked what kind of treatment would be available and they said I didn’t need to worry about that until I was about 60 years old.

Living on pain pills, muscle relaxers and anti-inflammatories for the next 20 years just sounded ridiculous to me. So, I immediately started researching holistic approaches to healing my body, as the medications did nothing to relieve my pain.  I found my way into Chiropractic Care, and shortly after was introduced to Non-surgical Spinal Decompression.  Because I stopped taking the meds and found a solution in chiropractic care and non-surgical spinal decompression,  I made a full recovery and it changed the whole course of my future.

A couple of years ago, when my husband retired from the Navy, I was able to work remotely for the Chiropractic office that I left in California. We went on a year long cross country adventure becoming full time RV’ers!! Living without pain allowed me to really enjoy our new adventure.

Setting off on this new adventure, my husband and I were not sure what our future held but trusted The Lord would lead us on the right path. We found our way from California to Jacksonville,  FL where I stumbled upon Dr Nathans & Nathans Family Chiropractic. I have a professional background in Finance, Sales & Marketing, but because of my a passion for regenerative care and helping people heal their body, I decided to forego my full–time RV travels to became a Chiropractic Assistant and quickly moved up to becoming the Office Manager.  I feel blessed for the opportunity to work at a World Class 100 Year Lifestyle – No Needle, Regenerative Clinic where I truly get to witness miracles happen daily!!

Chiropractic Assistant

My name is Ava Tewson and I am new to the Jax area. While I have not lived here very long, I am a native Floridian, raised in Winter Garden Florida and I am no stranger to Chiropractic. I have been raised in a rich lineage coming from a Chiropractic family.

My first adjustment was just hours after I was born! I was raised in a loving family who lived and modeled natural healthcare. I have a great love for athletics and some my favorite memories growing up involved sports, travel and family. I have always enjoyed competition and taking good care of my health physically, mentally and spiritually. My free time usually consists of daily exercise including crossfit/fitness, being in the outdoors with friends and enjoying time serving at my local church and the community. I have also knocked out a few years of college, studying Business Management at the University of Central Florida and plan to slowly finish my final year of Business School at UNF. What brings me to the Jax area and more specifically to Dr. NATHANS Chiro? My family history involves a strong influence in natural Healthcare, nutrition, Chiropractic and wholistic lifestyles. It is a part of me and I feel honored to begin serving along side the Nathan’s Family Chiropractic team.

Chiropractic Assistant

Right out of high school I found a passion in healthcare and have pursued it to this day. I started as a Chiropractic Assistant and transitioned into focusing on Non-Surgical Spinal Decompression. I have professional experience in finance, marketing, and business management. 

I was raised in Texas on a small ranch and spend all my time outdoors! I met my husband a few years ago and we spend our time camping, traveling, and hiking with our 3 pets. We’ve decided to try our hand at Florida life and I couldn’t be more excited to join the Alan Nathans Family Chiropractic team!

Jeannette (1)


Chiropractic Assistant

Hola! My name is Jeannette, I was born in Costa Rica and speak fluent Spanish and English. Since I was 5 years old I knew I wanted to help people. I grew up surrounded by friends and family who believe God created our bodies to heal themselves and medications can be harmful and are only a band-aid on a much bigger issue. I believe that nutrition and exercise are the best things you can do for a healthier lifestyle and reverse many illnesses.

My passion for people and watching lives change brought me to work at a pain management office where I worked as a medical assistant because I wanted to help people in pain to feel better and return to a normal lifestyle. While working there I completed my NASM education and personal trainer internship at Lifetime Fitness in order to better understand how I could help patients.

It wasn’t until I moved from Maryland to Florida & heard of Nathans Family Chiropractic, that I found a company that aligned with my beliefs. I am excited to work here and educate patients on nutritional supplements and all the amazing treatments that have changed so many lives under the care of Nathans Family Chiropractic. My hobbies include playing guitar, fishing, golfing, drawing, hiking, weight lifting, and taking my two miniature schnauzers to the beach.


Chiropractic Assistant

Hello! My name is Rebecca, and chiropractic care has been a part of my life for as long as I can remember. My very first adjustment was when I was just 2 days old! While I was born in Atlanta, I have lived in Jacksonville for most of my life.
Before joining the Nathans Family Chiropractic team, I worked in the Childcare Industry for nine years before, during, and after college. I worked in the classroom directly with children, and I also attained my Director’s credentials and worked in preschool administration. While I have always had a passion for children, I attended the University of North Florida and graduated with a Bachelor’s Degree in Business Management with the hopes of one day owning my own business. As an avid athlete playing basketball and volleyball from a young age and now into adulthood, I know that consistently getting adjusted has enhanced my athletic abilities and overall health. Chiropractic care helped me prepare for tournaments, perform better on the court, and when needed, recover more quickly from injuries. I learned a lot about business administration from my preschool work, but now I am excited to be a part of the Nathans Family Chiropractic team where I can truly embrace my love for holistic health. I am so excited to be a part of this practice and to help this community!

our health philosophy


We are all getting the advanced warning that we will likely live longer than we ever expected, what will you do with this information

Innate Intelligence

You have, within you, an Innate Intelligence. Present from the moment you were conceived, this intelligence grew you from 1 cell into over 80 quadrillion cells that were organized and specialized to keep you healthy and functioning at your highest level throughout your lifetime. This Innate Intelligence guides the processes in your body that turn food into cells, eliminate waste products, coordinate muscle contraction and communicate with or without your conscious thought to every cell, tissue and organ of your body via your nervous system. As long as there is no interference to this system, you have the capability to heal, feel great, be healthy and function well for a lifetime. Nurture this Intelligence for the development of your human potential and you will set personal records in all areas of your life.


Unfortunately, there can be interference to the communication and expression of this intelligence within your body. This interference causes dis-ease, weakness, and imbalances within your nervous system that can cause all types of immediate health problems. Or, this interference can lie dormant and asymptomatic for decades, leading to severe health conditions, chronic pain, deterioration and disease down the road. Nerve Interference in the spine is called a vertebral subluxation. Lifestyle Interference is a result of poor health habits such as overeating, poor nutrition, excessive drinking, taking prescription or non-prescription drugs, or sitting too much. Environmental Interference is caused by toxicity from air, food, water, or chemicals, as well as accidents or natural disasters. All three types of interference can cause pressure in your spine and nervous system and affect your health on every level.


Using a variety of chiropractic techniques, we will work to remove this interference from your body so that you can heal quickly, stabilize, regenerate and achieve optimum health and peak performance levels for a lifetime, your ideal 100 Year Lifestyle.
