Sports Injury Rehabilitation Treatment
Chiropractor in Salem, OR: Athletes understand the numerous demands of participating in a sport. Putting the body through rigorous activities, such as running, jumping or tackling, can result in painful tears, sprains and strains. Seeing a Dr. Whitmire can help patients to heal faster when they have suffered sports injuries and can also help patients to prevent them.
Sports injuries can limit performance and cause pain:
The main reasons athletes suffer sports injuries include forceful impacts, repetitive motions, over-training and failure to warm up properly. This can happen in countless ways, depending on what activity they are doing or what sport they are playing in. As an active person, it is important for the athlete to take precautionary measures, however, sometimes injuries happen and they are often the result of injuries suffered years or even decades ago that did not heal properly.
Dr. Whitmire sees a lot of children and teens that tend to ignore what seem to be small injuries when they are active. But if these injuries are left untreated, they can lead to chronic pain in other areas, that may not even be directly related to the focal point of the injury, such the knees, hips, back and neck. Many sports injuries are insufficiently treated and allowed to rest and heal, increasing the odds that they will cause chronic pain later in life. This can lead to pain, frustration and decrease in athletic abilities.

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.
