Rochester Chiropractor offers new holistic approach

New to the Rochester area, Dr. Kathy Whitmore, owner of Health and Healing Chiropractic, stands out among other chiropractors as she is able to offer a unique holistic approach to treating and helping people who suffer with neck and back pain.

Whitmore specializes in gentle adjusting techniques for people of all ages, from newborns to senior citizens, who are seeking a more active life and better health without the necessity of costly x-rays.

A licensed chiropractor, Whitmore’s unique approach looks for underlying causes of any disturbance or disruption and promotes the interventions and lifestyle adjustments that would optimize the conditions for normal function.

Using these techniques, Whitmore is able to help patients accelerate and/or maintain their  journeys to good health. She helps them shift awareness toward a more vitalistic and holistic way of living and helps empower patients to take responsibility for their own health.

“Chiropractic care is not just about back and neck pain,” Whitmore says. “Regular adjustments help your nervous system function at its best so your body is more capable of remaining healthy and healing quickly. Much like brushing your teeth, regular maintenance helps to prevent potential future problems.”

How often adjustments are needed varies for each individual and depends largely on the patient’s stress levels and lifestyle.

Whitmore explains that misalignments in the spine disrupt the flow of information between the brain and the rest of the body, which may or may not result in symptoms. Chiropractic adjustments clear those misalignments so patients can enjoy maximum health and vitality.

“Our intention is to lead people to their highest potential,” Whitmore adds.
