Our Team Is Dedicated To Your Health

Whitehead Wellness Center in Marion, Illinois, offers chiropractic treatment, massage therapy, and sports medicine services to southern Illinois. We accommodate patients from 5 to 105 years old. When it comes to pain and discomfort, we believe in the value of your care, and make it easy to receive health care.

What sets Dr. Whitehead apart from others chiropractors in our area is his longtime proven method of “hands on”.  The actual time spent with chiropractors’ hands on the body has diminished over time due to new technologies, therapies, and methods.  Many offices depend on machines, or tools to work on and even adjust the patient. Dr. Whitehead prefers hands on manipulation.  He will personally work on any condition you have, massage the muscles, and give an adjustment when appropriate.  He wants to be able to provide personal one on one care so that we can build trust within the treatment and give the personal knowledge of what has been done and what needs to be done with every individual patient.  His main treatment methods include diversified method, flexion distraction, and neuromuscular reeducation. 

Often there is a misconception what chiropractors can treat.  Some think they are just a “back doctor”.  However chiropractic care can be helpful in many other ailments and situations.  Here at our office Dr. Whitehead treats not only neck and back, but also headaches, elbow/wrist tendonitis, knee sprain/strains, plantar fasciitis, groin strains, hips, and many other complaints.  We offer therapies alongside the doctor’s care such as electrical muscle stimulation, and ultrasound.  Muscle stimulation is a machine where pads are applied to your muscles and the electric impulses cause your muscles to contract, ultimately relieving tension/spasms/inflammation.   Afterwards your muscles feel worn out and are easier for Dr. Whitehead to work on.  The ultrasound actually penetrates about a ½ to 1 inch deep into the muscle and breaks up the inflammation from the inside out.  This helps for acute, injury pain and also works greatly after an epidural injection.   If you are unsure about any symptoms or if chiropractic can help you, please call and ask!
