Customer Reviews

  • 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!

  • review rating 5  came to doc Whelton for my s. I. joint because it was out of align. my back doctor wanted to fuse my joint, doctor Whelton was not on board with that treatment. He told me to give him 3 to 5 weeks with his reccomend exercises and my joint would be stabilize, I was a little skeptical at first but the more I did the exercises the better I became and my joint is finally stable. I would reccomend his protocol to anyone who is hurting from this I believe now that his system to get your joint stable is a far better than having surgery to fuse a joint where you can't undo it if it does not work, and have a lifetime of misery he is the best phiscal therapist that I have ever been to

  • review rating 5  I have had lower back pain for about a year or so and been to 2 or or 3 sports therapy places around Tampa with no success. So about 1 year into my pain I found sport and spine on Facebook and gave him a call and started treatment immediately. Not expecting much because the others had not made me feel better and amazingly I started to get better and better and better until the pain was completely gone. I was amazed and happy at the same time because finally someone had helped me. He also gives you advice on other things as well as to what to do to keep your back strengthened and how to have a complete body of health. I strongly recommend him to any type of pain therapy for anyone and any age he was great for me and helped me big time.

  • review rating 5  I have had severe low back pain for over 4 years I couldn’t stand up to even go to the supermarket to get groceries. I have had over 40 injections into my low back but it never worked and no one could tell me WHY I had it. I have tried other PTs, chiros, pain management, acupuncture, massage nothing helped. I saw Dr. Whelton’s ad and figured one more chance to try. He diagnosed me with not only a herniated disc in my back but what everyone missed and he caught was that I had a mechanical issue in my sacrum and pelvis that was really causing all the pain which didn’t show up on X-rays and MRIs. I didn’t even believe my doctors even could understand how painful my condition is (was) Now, I am pretty much pain free and he taught me how to not him or anyone again of it flares up. Highly highly highly recommend him I always recommend people to come see him! I am so bummed today as it is my last visit with him:(

  • review rating 5  I have tried Chiropractic, I tried and SI joint belt, massage therapy and pain medication with minimal help. I saw an ad for Dr. Whelton and he said he has great success with SI joint dysfunction for low back pain. Now I am in no pain I can walk, stand for long periods and do whatever I want highly recommend going to see him!
