Your First Stop to a Healthier Lifestyle !
There are three types of care provided at WFFC: 1.Relief care 2.Corrective care 3.Wellness care
Relief care is the first stage of care for most patients. The primary goal during this initial stage is to provide the individual with symptomatic relief.
Treatments focus on those techniques and therapies which most quickly and effectively reduce pain and other discomforts. This will allow the majority of individuals to continue their activities of daily living. Patients are generally recommended to take it easy but are encouraged to stay mobile and functional so long as there is not a risk of further injury or tissue damage.
Each relief care visit includes the following for all patients: Stretching and range of motion exercises Spinal &/or extremity adjustments Soft tissue therapy Pain Control Machine (if necessary) Stretching, ice and heat therapy advice Acute care nutrition advice Stress management advice Other relief care techniques maybe offered that Dr. Mike performs including acupuncture and sports injury therapy (ART).
The second stage of care consists of correcting the problems which caused and contributed to the condition. This stage involves healing and rehabilitating the injured tissues. Unless these events take place, a favorable outcome is unlikely and future recurrences of the problem are likely.
It is extremely important that the patient comply with and follow the instructions given by the doctor during this stage of care. Tissues and structures that are not fully healed and rehabilitated are prone to future problems.
Sticking to appointments, complying with home exercises and following instructions and all other recommendations will help ensure this occurs. Patients should also be aware that once pain and discomfort have subsided, tissue healing and functional correction is many times still incomplete and will often require additional adjustments. The pictures to the right are different scans of a person diagnosed to live only 6 more months starting from February. However, Chiropractic care reduced the stress (long color bars) and provided wellness (short or no bars). The person stayed alive long after 6 months had passed.
Dr. Whitleys corrective procedures will allow you to see before and after changes (outcome measurements) on x-rays, computer posture and nervous system analysis and many other tests. Each visit under corrective care includes: Stretching, range of motion exercises and stabilization exercises Mirror image adjusting Traction Spinal weighting Posture & balance exercises Spinal molding and fulcrum exercises Corrective nutrition advice Stress management advice Specific corrective care recommendations
Once the spinal tissues are healed and spinal postural biomechanics and nervous system have normalized, the patient will be recommended to continue with periodic spinal checkups. For some, this might mean once per month or more.
Chiropractic spinal checkups provide similar benefits to the spine that dental checkups provide to the teeth. Namely, catching minor problems and disturbances before they have the opportunity to cause pain, discomfort and irreversible cell, tissue and organ changes. Just like with cavities and heart attacks, irreversible tissue damage has generally occurred before the symptoms of spinal pain and discomfort become apparent.

Before & After Nerve and Muscle Study (EMG) Before After Before & After Computerized Postural Analysis After Before
A Revolutionary Technology: Spinal Decompression Therapy Several studies show over 70% of patients report good to excellent relief of their symptoms! In fact, 86% of patients experienced complete elimination of pain even after numerous other types of treatment had failed, including surgery! (sourced from the Journal of Musculoskeletal Pain)
Chiropractic has proven itself to be among the safest of all healing arts: Just How Safe is Safe? A study in the Journal of the Canadian Medical Association (Oct. 2001) found the risk of a stroke from a Chiropractic neck adjustment is only 1 in 5.85 million. Whereas the probability of death from stroke caused by 1 aspirin a day is 7000 per million. A 7- year international multidisciplinary study published Feb. 15, 2008 in the medical journal Spine provides further evidence that chiropractic care is extremely safe. The study concluded that when patients see a medical doctor or a chiropractor for neck problems or headaches, they found that …stroke is a very rare event and the risk of stroke associated with a visit to the chiropractors office appears to be no different from the risk of stroke following a visit to a family physicians office. This study also found that adjustments are among the short list of effective treatments for the most common types of neck pain and headaches. By choosing Chiropractic care, you have chosen one of the safest, most effective modes of health- care delivery available today. Just ask the millions of people who receive chiropractic care every day around the world how safe and beneficial it is!
