Pediatric Chiropractor in Salem, OR
Pediatric chiropractor in Salem, OR: Chiropractors have been performing adjustments on children and infants for more than one hundred years! Many childhood ailments respond to chiropractic care. This safe, non-invasive procedure involves the manipulation of the body to place the vertebrae in the correct positions in the spinal column. Chiropractic is based on the important relationship between the spine and the nervous system. Spinal dysfunctions caused by subluxations can alter how the body functions and affect health of children.
Our patients experience relief from common pediatric conditions:
- Infantile Colic
- ADD / ADHD
- Allergies/Sinus Issues/Asthma
- Bed Wetting
- Constipation/Digestive Issues
- Headaches / Migraines
- Chronic Ear Infections
- Scoliosis Detection and Treatment
- Flat Head Syndrome
- Sensory Processing Disorder
- TMJ Syndrome
When children come into this world, their bodies will be subjected to various kinds of stress. Even at birth, infants can be susceptible to spinal misalignment due to fetal positions in utero, a slow birth or a c-section. Some newborn health complaints such as colic, reflux, breastfeeding difficulties, sleep disturbances, allergic reactions, and chronic infections can sometimes be traced to nervous system irritation caused by spinal and cranial misalignments.
As a child develops, things can happen along the way. Poor posture, falls, injuries during athletic activities, can all affect how the body properly develops if there are subluxations. Not only that, chiropractic care helps many children with some common behavioral and mental issues!
Children can experience relief naturally with chiropractic care:
The first thing Dr. Whitmire will do is to conduct a thorough history of your child’s health and any complaints. This is followed by a complete physical examination of the child’s spine. We are trained to evaluate pediatric spinal problems, and will use gentle, specific skills to find and adjust any involved spinal areas.
Spinal adjustments for infants and young children involve a gentle fingertip pressure to correct spinal misalignments. This helps restore mobility to spinal joints. A child’s spine generally responds faster compared to an adult’s spine. The actual number of adjustments will vary depending on many factors such as the length of time the problem has been present.

I have been very impressed with the knowledge and professionalism shown by the staff and physicians at Whitmire Chiropractic. I have been to several other practitioners in the area and I am very relieved to have at last found a chiropractor I can be comfortable to bring my whole family to. I am finally finding relief for shoulder and neck pain that have plagued me for years. I have already referred this office to several of my friends and will continue to do so. Well Done Dr. Whitmire!! The most thorough and well explained doctor I’ve ever met!
This is the best experience I have had with a chiropractor. The doctor explained everything he was doing very thoroughly and professionally and helped me to understand why I was experiencing certain aches and pains and how I could alleviate those using massage and stretching techniques on my own. I felt comfortable and safe in this clean and friendly environment and will definitely be back for weekly follow up! I already feel so much better after my first appointment today. Highly recommend Dr. Whitmire and is team at the clinic!
I recommend this office to anyone who is in pain. I call Dr Whitmire my miracle worker. He always makes sure that I know exactly what he is doing and why. I get more information from him than I do with ANY other doctor in ANY field Ive ever been to! I love the office staff as well. It’s kind of like a big family. And the massages are to die for. Seriously folks…… If you need a chiropractor…….you cannot do better than Dr Whitmire!!!!
I’ve been so skeptical of chiropractic work until I talked with Dr. Whitmore. He has may years of education, practice, experience, and most of all he has people skills. He offers his patients information about what the treatment is, how it’s applied, what benefits there are, and an open mind. His knowledge of sports medicine really takes his work to the next level for patients with severe injuries. I would recommend his office to everyone.
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.
Love these people and everything they do. They are amazing and listen to all your needs.
Doctor Whitmire and Sanchez are amazing! Dr.Whitmire got me back to my full healthy happy self after my car accident and Dr. Sanchez does ART therapy that is to die for! The best chiropractors in town!

Wonderful atmosphere, everyone is super friendly and ready to help you feel healthy again! Definitely recommend it 🙂
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.
The doctors and staff give amazing care and listen to your concerns. Beautiful, clean, and professional office.
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.
The Doctor and Staff are welcoming and very informative. I tend to ask a lot of questions and they always answer my as best as possible. It’s nice to go to a doctor that really wants to get their patients better. I highly recommend JP for anyone seeking chiro!
LOVE LOVE LOVE the care here! Best chiropractor in town!
I can grip my reins & ride my horse w/ more confidence!
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.
It is family owned! And I personally know the owners but they do help. ( I have had to get readjusted before )
