Customer Reviews

  • review rating 5  Ive had this problem for about two years, low back pain, trouble running and severe pain after lifting. I live in the weight room and needed to be healthy to do the excersises I want, I had been to chiropractors, physical therapists, and everyone in between, no one could figure it out. Came here and in 5 minutes Dr Whelton had a solution for me. He gave me a program that I followed to a T and about a month later I'm healed, he did what no one else could and I am extremely appreciative of this. Come here to fix your back guaranteed.

  • review rating 5  I visited Dr. Whelton after pursuing several options for my recurring back pain. Other PTs and chiropractors could not alleviate my discomfort and overall stiffness that prevented me from being active with my family. Dr. Whelton assessed my problem and identified issues not only with my back but also my hamstrings and hip-flexors. I could not be more happy, my flexibility has returned, I am pain free, and I am back able to be active with my family. I’m so grateful for Dr Whelton and emphatically recommend his services to those in pain. Go see him, you will not be disappointed!!!

  • review rating 5  My shoulder started 2 years ago while throwing a football with my grandson. I heard a pop and then I couldn’t raise my arm up to do wash my hair, put on my clothes, reaching down and lifting, putting dishes away was out of the question, I was unable to pick up pots and pans without fear of dropping it so I would ask my wife to do it. When it happened I went to my doctor and was told you have two options, you could never use your arm again the way you did before or have surgery. Neither of those options were acceptable to me. I also saw an acupuncturist for this condition but it did not fix the problem. My wife saw Dr. Whelton’s ad and was interested as he thought differently. After 3 weeks I could actually raise my arm above my with weight and do all the household chores and it was so much better! I am 90% better in just 5 weeks. If you are experiencing pain and have tried everything don’t have surgery and don’t accept you will have to live with it for the rest of your life. Take it from me and come see him and follow what he says and you will see the results.

  • review rating 5  If I could give him 100 stars I would. As a healthcare professional myself I can tell you that he is not your traditional healthcare Professional he is beyond that he thinks outside of the box and does not give up on you. I came to his office as a lost case. I cannot put weight on my left foot I went from a very active person who loves to dance go biking swimming running to someone stumbling across the room using a cane. I had seen for podiatrist one chiropractor a few medical doctors and nobody had a clue what to do other than surgery or steroid shots for pain which I could not accept for myself. After doing research for other options from orthopedics to physical therapist I stumbled upon his office and I did go to his first visit and I did have doubts and so did my husband but I said I have nothing to lose at this point I was depressed. After completing the recommended amount of therapy I now can bike again, I can swim , go to the gym be active, I can walk as simple as it sounds it’s a blessing to me even after completing my therapy he is still currently working with me to find solutions thinking outside of the box so that I could possibly run again and dance. After years and years of looking for a special type of foot insert that all the podiatrist in my lifetime have told me it’s not possible he was able to find a company and mold it the way We wanted. After only a week of wearing those inserts plus the therapy it decrease the pain by 90%. The truth about him is that he does want to help and he does want to see his patients get better. If I hadn’t found him I would probably Be in surgery worsening my chances even more. I am blessed to have met him and his staff as he continues to help me on the road to full recovery.

  • review rating 5  I suffered from a herniated disk in my neck (C-7), causing nerve pain and numbness down my right arm. Dr Whelton had me feeling better and in no pain in 5 weeks. I highly recommend Sport and Spine Physical Therapy. Dr Whelton genuinely cares about healing and helping you fulfill a heathy, physical, and pain free life.
