Michele K. Gerard, D.C.
Dr. Gerard has been practicing in Austin since 1984. She is a graduate of Texas Chiropractic College in Pasadena, Texas. Before becoming a chiropractor, Dr. Gerard worked for 10 years in the medical field as a Radiologic Technologist, performing special imaging studies on cancer patients at M.D. Anderson Hospital in Houston, Texas. Her frustration with the medical field and her own spinal problems led her to chiropractic. After her own dramatic results, she decided to help others achieve true wellness and pursued her passion of chiropractic.
Dr. Gerard specializes in family wellness and chronic, difficult cases. Her techniques include Chiropractic Biophysics, Diversified, Cox Flexion-Distraction, Activator and the Webster Technique. We utilize in-house, state of the art digital x-ray equipment. For a more detailed explanation of Dr. Gerard’s techniques, visit our Techniques page or visit our Services page for all services we offer.
Dr. Gerard is a member of the Royal Chiropractic Knights of the Round Table (a prestigious, invite-only group of extraordinary women chiropractors), International Chiropractic Association, the Chiropractic Society of Texas, the World Congress of Chiropractic Women, and the League of Chiropractic Women. She was also awarded the Community Service Award from the Texas Military Forces State Family Program for her service to the veterans of Iraq and Afghanistan.
