meet dr. jeff...
Jeff Gancas grew up in Livermore, California with his three brothers and one sister. He was very active in competitive soccer which continued through college. Because of a knee injury, Jeff was introduced into the work of sports rehabilitation therapy.
While visiting his family's chiropractor, Jeff was asked "Why sports rehab? Why not chiropractic?" This simple question changed Jeff's life. Jeff had seen the wonders of how his mother had experienced migraines and was helped through chiropractic care. It was at this time that Jeff realized how limiting sports rehabilitation could be and how open and how many more families could be helped in a broader way through chiropractic care.
Jeff attended Life Chiropractic College West in California and graduated in 1993. Dr. Jeff began practice in Livermore, California working with his family's chiropractor and shortly thereafter moved to the Sacramento area. Dr. Jeff was co-owner of River City Chiropractic from 1997 until September, 2009, with Dr. Ken Moger. Together they built one of the largest family chiropractic offices in California.
Over the years Dr. Jeff has been Team Chiropractor for professional sports teams, churches, and schools. Dr. Jeff is very passionate about chiropractic and the amazing healing that can happen through chiropractic care. He is a leader in helping his patients remove the interference that is keeping them and their families from reaching their maximum health potential. Dr. Jeff has delivered over 250,000 life changing adjustments.
Dr. Jeff will do whatever it takes, speak at any organization (with his family's permission…) to get the message out of how to achieve true health and wellbeing. Dr. Jeff was aleaders in his community, bringing the Body by God Extreme Makeover to many churches and congregations in the Sacramento area.

Dr. Jeff has also brought the Maximized Living Program of nutrition and exercise to our local elementary and Junior High schools.

The chiropractic lifestyle the Gancas family lives with their children is the true chiropractic lifestyle of health and wellbeing without unnecessary medications and drugs. Their health is exceptional.
Outside of chiropractic, Dr. Jeff keeps busy in our community coaching at least one of his children's soccer teams, every year for the past six years. Dr. Jeff takes this opportunity to teach the kids not only about soccer, but also the discipline it takes to achieve goals (not just soccer goals!) They have enjoyed many successful seasons. In his spare time, Jeff enjoys fishing, playing golf, and enjoying his dogs.
You will love the energy and passion Dr. Jeff has!
