Chiropractor in Austin TX
If you are struggling to manage chronic pain or heal an injury, it's natural to get frustrated with traditional medical care. Prescription medication only provides temporary relief, and invasive surgeries often create additional problems and risks. At Whitehead Chiropractic, we believe that there is a better and safer way back to health.

Chiropractor in Austin treats Leg, Hip, TMJ, and Back
A misalignment of the musculoskeletal system is an underlying cause for many types of body pain. An auto accident injury like whiplash, a pinched nerve or natural wear and tear on the body can lead to misalignments in the spine. Chiropractic care focuses on restoring alignment to the musculoskeletal system for natural relief through advanced techniques such as Gonstead Technique and Orthospinology (upper cervical care). Whether you suffer from foot plantar fasciitis or shoulder with a herniated disc, we can help you find true relief with less treatment.
We use adjustment techniques; Gonstead, Thompson Terminal Point and Activator Methods. The Gonstead technique is a method that utilizes considerable testing and evaluation to determine the precise points that need adjustments and in what order to make the adjustments. This method is effective to pinpoint the problem in the hip, shoulder, leg and foot. The Thompson Terminal Point technique that requires a special table to reduce the amount of energy needed to adjust the body. This allows our chiropractor to use consistent low-force thrusts to precisely adjust the body. The Activator Method technique uses a small hand tool to provide focused and gentle adjustments that provide widespread relief.
We also use an advanced Upper Cervical Care for conditions such as high bood pressure, Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, Plantar Fasciitis, and TMJ (Temporal Mandibular Joint dysfunction), just to name a few. Upper Cervical Care (also called Orthospinology) centers adjustments on the upper two spinal vertebra (the Atlas and Axis). TMJ, Seniors, ADHD and others have found relief in this type of treatment. Dr. Whitehead has personally experienced the dramatic results of this treatment in her own life.
If you have sustained an injury or loss of mobility, our advanced training in rehabilitation and strengthening will result in a Custom Recovery Plan for you. These Plans use low-tech tools like foam rollers and stretching bands which empower you to complete rehabilitation in the comfort of your home. Additionally, we offer Kinesio Taping, McKensie exercises, and other corrective exercises to maximize your relief and results.
Dr. Whitehead also has extensive training in treating whiplash and auto accident injuries.
Beyond rehabilitation, we believe each individual has a unique nutritional requirement. Our nutrition counseling identifies the right balance of nutrients and supplements that are essential to promoting your health. We also provide long-term weight loss and management tailored to individual preference such as vegetarian or gluten-free diets.
