Customer Reviews

  • review rating 5  Psychosomatic. The word that started it all! It all started with my then 11yo daughter suddenly couldn’t walk. This 3 year journey consisted of numerous doctors visits to pediatricians, cardiologists, neurologists, rheumatologists, physiatrists, geneticists, physical therapists, radiologists and back again to a wonderful physiatrist named Dr. Batas. After my daughter’s muscle biopsy, he suggested the ‘Hip Whisperer.’ At first, I was very skeptical. But I was NOT accepting the ‘we don’t know what’s wrong. Let’s try this (insert procedure and/or doctor). ‘ AND I just wanted my daughter’s pain level to stop being an 8 out of ten and for her to stop taking pain medication. Hip whisperer, Whatever! 🤨 Can you say that my daughter walks beautifully, is stronger especially when she is playing soccer, best posture that she has ever had, no pain meds, does the splits, she runs, she climbs, she lifts, she can sit up, she can do a crunch! 😜 But the most important thing to me: She smiles. She is so happy now. You don’t know how that makes me feel. All because of a man who went beyond the typical medical mindset and found something that effects so many in silence for so long. Dr. Ryan Whelton. The Hip Whisperer. He is amazing. Plus, My daughter thinks that he has a nice doggo. 💖

  • 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.

  • 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  After experiencing severe dealing lower back pain for almost 10 years I was never able to pinpoint the problem or find a solution. After going to countless doctors no one was able to figure out my problem and how to fix it. One day I stumbled upon Dr.Whelton’s page on Facebook. After reading many reviews and experiences that sounded similar to mine I decided to give it a try. I was amazed at how quickly he was able to identify my problem and within 2 weeks my pain was already starting to disappear. By week 5 I was pain free and able to go back to lifting weights pain free and doing exercises I hadn’t been able to do in years such as squatting and deadlifting without a problem. I had pretty much given up and believed this was going to be a problem I was going to have to deal with for the rest of my life but Dr.Whelton was able to change that. So glad I made the decision to give it a try and would recommend anyone else dealing with similar issues to do the same.

  • review rating 5  I have been dealing with lower back pain since August 2018. Unknown to me as to what the real true cause was I tried multiple things to try to alleviate the persistent pain over the course of almost two years. These things ranged from me trying to self heal, to going to chiropractors, to even getting injections in my lower back. None of it had any long term effects and only provided short term relief for a couple hours at most. I was thinking that I might just have to live with this pain for the rest of my life. At age 40 that was not a comfortable thought and I certainly did not want to have surgery and risk having even greater complications. Thankfully the day I went to see Dr. Whelton was the day my life slowly started to change for the better. During the first visit he intuitively diagnosed me and gave me detailed instructions on how to heal my body. At first I was skeptical like most would be but I’m glad I stuck with the plan as I feel I am truly on the road to recovery. Little by little my back is feeling better and better to the point to where I am now almost completely pain free. I would recommend Dr. Whelton to anyone who has tried multiple ways to alleviate their pain and have been unsuccessful. I would also recommend Dr. Whelton to anyone who just wants to skip all the other types of treatments and just start here. In either case you will be happy that you did!
