Back Pain Treatment
Back Pain Treatment in Salem OR: Back pain can manifest itself in various ways to cause pain, irritation and lack of range of motion in the body. Back pain affects approximately three million people in the United States annually! It is important to keep the spine healthy, as it is the center of the body and connects to everything, either directly or via the nervous system. Chiropractic care can help keep patients to live pain-free regardless of their lifestyle.
Stop living with back pain:
Upper and middle back pain may be caused by muscle or ligament strains, poor posture and damage or tension involving the discs in the spinal column. This can happen very easily to people who work at a desk five days a week! It can also occur from pressure on the spinal nerves from certain problems, such as a herniated disc.
Low back pain is usually caused by strains or sprains from improper lifting, poor posture, lack of regular exercise, fracture, ruptured disk or arthritis. It is important to be mindful of the body and how it is positioned during daily tasks to avoid injury. But sometimes, almost seemingly at random, back pain can strike, causing pain, discomfort and decreased quality of life.
Common symptoms of back pain:
- Numbness or tingling
- Radiating or sharp, shooting pain
- Severe pain that does not improve after resting
- Pain after a fall or an injury
- Trouble urinating
Chiropractic care promotes longevity and reduces pain:
Chiropractic care is a painless, low-risk and non-invasive treatment that can have lasting results with regular care. With gentle manipulation and other techniques, the body can be aligned and pain can be reduced or eliminated depending on the condition. By using varying body positions and hands-on techniques, the vertebrae in the spine will be adjusted back to their proper place within the body. This will allow the nervous system to function optimally and allows the spinal column to deliver water, blood and nutrients to the body. This will help the patient to heal and keep the body functioning at its best with regular care.
After a few sessions, many patients report feeling relief. Depending on the condition, previous ailments and other factors, the time it takes to reduce or eliminate pain may vary. It is important to regularly visit your chiropractor to see lasting results.

Great place!!! Everybody here is very nice and they really care about their patients. I have never walked into a place where I am greeted by such delightful people. They knew me by my first name on only the second time I was there, very impressive!! Doctor Whitmire is a great guy and he has alot of solid advice and he knows what is the best treatment for each individual. If you’ve got aches and pains, go see JP Whitmire and his outstanding staff!
JP has treated everyone in my family. From my wife, to my 20+ year old sons, my teenage daughter, my 10 year old daughter and me. Great care and thoughtfulness all the way through the process. JP also helps develop a plan to prevent future issues.
Dr. Whitmire did a great job when I went to see him for some low back pain. He was very knowledgeable and helped me to get pain free quickly. I have recommended him and his clinic to family and friends.
In the spring of 2014 I began visiting Dr. Whitmire for treatment of Migraine headaches. After a thorough evaluation he adjusted my neck bringing immediate relief of pain and Migraine symptoms. My primary care physician at the time only prescribed narcotic pain medication and told me to come back when my prescription ran out. The migraines were so frequent that I had to choose between being incapacitated by the migraines or the narcotics. After only a few visits with Dr. Whitmire the frequency of my migraines began to subside and I was able to quit taking the narcotics all together. In the fall of 2014 I was in a motorcycle accident. I landed in a jackknife position on the small of my back. After an Urgent care visit, X-Rays, and a new prescription for narcotics, my primary care physician suggested seeing a surgeon and said that there was little he could do but continue prescribing pain medication. Again I visited Dr. Whitmire. After another thorough assessment he adjusted my spine. The treatments required many visits and adjustments, but Dr. Whitmire was persistent and consistent in providing care. It took 6 months for me to fully recover from my injuries. Without Dr. Whitmire’s help, I would probably still be recovering today. Dr. Whitmire always takes the time to listen and and answer questions. His gift for healing has blessed my life.
It is family owned! And I personally know the owners but they do help. ( I have had to get readjusted before )
40 yrs of MIGRAINES have taught me that if I start with a ‘aura’ then a massive headache will follow and nothing but medication and time will take it away. However, I was in Salem the other day and started with an aura and I did not have my imitrex medication with me. I asked Dr. Whitmire if he could try to do something. He worked with me, doing a few different things. Then I took 10 minutes laying down with a hotpack….and AMAZINGLY …I avoided a full-blown migraine. Dr. Whitmire taught me a certain point to press and how to rotate my head…..and so far, I’ve stopped the progression of ‘aura to migraine’ 3 more times. Love this place!!! If you suffer from migraines I highly recommend that you try it out.
Love these people and everything they do. They are amazing and listen to all your needs.
