Wayne Whalen DC of Whalen Chiropractic is featured on Close Up Radio

SANTEE, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES, June 15, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ — Generally everyone will experience some type of neck or back pain in their lifetime. A standard response to this would be to see your GP, take over-the-counter medication, or simply ignore and live with the condition.

While more and more people are turning to chiropractic care for their musculoskeletal issues, some people have never considered it due to ignorance, lack of exposure, misunderstanding, or doubt. The profession has made great strides in demonstrating clinical efficacy, cost savings, collaboration with medical colleagues and high levels of patient satisfaction in recent years. Recent research shows that once you start seeing a chiropractor, your odds of ever having surgery or being placed on opioids are dramatically reduced.

dr Whalen is a highly sought after chiropractor and is the founder and owner of Whalen Chiropractic.

according to dr Wayne Whalen, a full-service chiropractor who has practiced chiropractic for over 35 years and has co-authored several peer-reviewed guidelines for the profession.

“I recommend seeing a chiropractor if you experience mild pain before it becomes a serious problem.”

He sees the problem from a mechanical perspective and has co-authored national guidelines to address these ailments in a more holistic approach, rather than relying on over-the-counter or prescription drugs. His first recommendation would be a 6-visit study, including spinal manipulation, exercise advice, and other options. Most spinal problems are related to mechanical dysfunction and respond well to mechanical rather than chemical treatments. He recommends a thorough evaluation, a treatment trial, and a post-treatment improvement evaluation.

“I look for dysfunction in the way the joints move and focus on getting the muscles and joints working properly. That’s a reasonable approach.”

However, he insists that there are many fallacies associated with his area of ​​expertise and understanding of spinal manipulation. What is defined as spinal manipulation is a procedure in which trained chiropractors use their hands to apply controlled rapid force to a spinal joint. The goal of this procedure is to improve spinal movement and improve your body’s physical function. An earlier theory in the medical field was that spinal manipulation could, in rare cases, lead to a stroke by causing vertebral artery dissection. dr Whalen confirms that there have been many studies of spinal manipulation, and neurosurgeons agree that arteries in the neck do not rupture as was once thought. Therefore, there is no correlation between the two and it is very rare that a stroke can occur. according to dr Whalen, there is a much higher risk of a person dying from liver damage or internal bleeding from ibuprofen than from suffering a stroke from spinal manipulation.

In his 35 years of chiropractic experience, Dr. Whalen found that one of the most common concerns people have is having their neck adjusted to relieve the pain they are experiencing.

“I was treating a 19 year old patient with constant daily headaches who had seen 3 neurologists and the headaches were still ongoing.”

“So I performed my spinal manipulation on her neck and the next day she reported, ‘This is the first time in 3 years that I’ve woken up without a headache.’

dr Whalen also points out that seeing a chiropractor is a much safer option than taking medication or having surgery.

“There’s a reason we’re having an opioid crisis in this country, and a lot of it stems from all the doctors prescribing drugs that are both addictive and deadly. We are taking a more conservative approach to healing to ensure the lifelong safety of our patients.”

dr Whalen now works with a team of practicing chiropractors who have created national guidelines for treating back pain. A few years ago he published a guideline on neck pain and most recently on chronic pain. The main goal is to educate other physicians on what is the appropriate holistic treatment to treat headaches, back pain, and musculoskeletal disorders.

“My work is entirely evidence based and while I make no promises, I explain how I approach pain management. I’m looking at it all from the perspective of a mechanical problem that needs to be fixed.”

dr Whalen hopes that as more people embrace a natural approach to pain management, the public’s reluctance to see a chiropractic doctor will completely dissipate.

“If you’ve never considered a chiropractor, don’t put up with the bias, inaccuracies, and criticism.”
