Dr. Hanner was board certified as a Chiropractic Physician in 1995. He was later board certified in orthopedics by the Academy of Chiropractic Orthopedists, and certified in CranioSacral Therapy (CST) through the Upledger Institute. For 23 years, his practice concentrated on treating patients for their neuro-musculoskeletal health complaints, with a focus on spinal rehabilitation. Over time, his interest in Integrative and Functional Medicine grew. He began his studies in Functional Medicine in 2015 and has since completed his work in the ADAPT (Advanced Diagnostic And Personalized Treatment) framework. He now holds the designation of ADAPT Trained Practitioner from Kresser Institute in Functional Medicine and ancestral health. He is currently completing the Somatic Experiencing Trauma Institute’s 3-year program to become a certified Somatic Experiencing Practitioner (SEP).
Dr. Hanner approaches health concerns by obtaining a thorough medical history, the latest in evidence-based lab testing, and physical examination. His philosophy is always to find and treat the root cause of the problem. Functional medicine addresses the underlying causes of chronic health concerns, instead of just treating symptoms, so patients can get well and stay well without unnecessary drugs or surgery.
He is also particularly interested in how the chronic effects of Trauma impact not only our mental well-being, but also our physical well-being. He has seen first-hand how resolving and integrating the effects of trauma in an individual, can have miraculous effects on physical illness. Somatic Experiencing and CranioSacral Therapy are powerful tools in addressing the chronic effects of physical and emotional trauma. They can re-balance and re-regulate a chronically unhealthy and dysregulated nervous system.
Dr. Hanner has practiced in Anderson, SC since 1995. He and his wife Lisa along with their son Jordan and daughter Rachel, enjoy living, learning, working and playing in the Upstate.
