Weight Loss in Salem, OR: Chiropractors are skilled at helping patients reach the healthiest version of themselves, including their ideal weight. Dr. Whitmire will work with patients to figure out the best course of action to take the steps toward long term weight loss and optimal health.
Chiropractic care promotes a healthy lifestyle:
Chiropractic care focuses on the entire body, getting to the root cause of any unpleasant symptom. By focusing on holistic, non-invasive practices and lifestyle changes that mean long-term results for weight loss, without the use of pills or surgery. For those looking to make a permanent change in their health and lifestyle, a chiropractor may be the right choice for you.
Subluxations of the spine are often direct contributors to weight gain. Nerves throughout the spinal column connect the brain to the rest of the human body. When there are misalignments along these pathways, communication is compromised and signals, such as those that control hunger and eating cues, can be affected. Having misalignments leads to chronic pain or decreased range of motion as a result, making the upkeep of a physically active lifestyle far more difficult.
We also offer massage therapy, which can help increase muscle relaxation and recovery but can also stimulate body metabolism to help you lose weight. Chiropractic adjustments and other modalities can effectively relieve these problems, providing a much easier path for weight loss and overall health.
Chiropractic care can help with the following:
- Boost metabolism
- Increase range of motion
- Elongates the body
- Increases nerve function for diet control
- Increases circulation
Nutritional guidance, natural treatments and custom exercise programs can help patients lose weight healthily:
Proper nutrition is the key to successful, long-term weight loss. Dr. Whitmire will help analyze each patient’s eating habits and will provide suggestions to help alleviate any number of other medical concerns. For most chiropractic physicians, imparting healthier lifestyle habits to their patients is a service equally as important as adjustments. By making personal recommendations for exercise and diet based on a patient’s individual needs, comfort levels and healing time; the overall health can be boosted with weight loss being a typical result.

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.
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!
I can grip my reins & ride my horse w/ more confidence!
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 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!
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!
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.
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!!!!
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!
