Meet Dr. Hommer

Dr. Dani Hommer

Dr. Danielle Hommer was born and raised south of the Des Moines metro. Growing up, she experienced the seemingly minor aches and pains associated with a year-round sports schedule. Her interest in the function of the human body and passion for athletic activities led her to seek out a career in conservative treatment of musculoskeletal pain and injuries. After learning more about chiropractic from a family friend, she was attracted to the chiropractic view on letting the body heal itself and importance on preventative medical care.


Dr. Hommer is a board certified chiropractic physician that has been serving the Ankeny community for over 5 years. She obtained her Doctorate in Chiropractic graduating Cum Laude from Palmer College of Chiropractic. In addition to the rigorous requirements of Palmer’s curriculum, she became interested in and took advanced coursework in soft tissue techniques (Active Release Techniques®) while still in school.

Upon becoming frustrated with the inconsistent results of manipulation and ART® in practice, she sought a better solution. Upon the urging of a colleague, Dr. Cody Scharf, she began training in Integrative Diagnosis. The ID system’s focus on proper diagnosis, objective measurements, effective treatment and results-based metrics resonated with her values as a provider and patient. She is currently the only full-body certified Integrative Diagnosis provider in central Iowa and one of three in the state.

In her free time, she enjoys traveling, reading, paleo cooking and being active; playing volleyball, resistance training, biking the High Trestle Trail, or a hot yoga flow.
