I had lower back pain shooting through the right hip and leg. After a long but successful process, the results have been miraculous! No pain, not even discomfort in any areas. My job involves that I sit most of the day and it is a pleasure to be smiling more these days due to the corrective care Dr. James Whittlesey has given me. I will gladly recommend D. Whittlesey to anyone I know suffering with any pain that is related to the care of a chiropractor. I also find that I have more erect posture in my walk and sitting. Thank you so much for making me feel young again!

I have been a patient of Dr. James Whittlesey for over 20 years. Now at age 75 I have a healthy spine and have been healed of other ailments through his multi-faceted abilities and techniques both in chiropractics and knowledge of natural remedies. He was able to help me cure an ulcer condition through allergy testing and dietary supplements. I have recommended him to others who have had excellent results through his care with their serious and painful health issues. I am willing to travel a 4 hr trip from Lake County to Novato to have him cure me almost 100{f33a17e58ccebec416f60bcae0d82187ed1cbf63c4287e58ad1a038a73f0ba9c} of the time w/his vast knowledge & experience in the use of healing, natural medicines, including very sophisticated, cutting edge latest developments that he continues to explore and study in areas of the newest scientific developments in 21st century natural healing. I am pleased and honored to be able to write this review.

I had a lot of lower back pain and leg pain. Every 2-3 months I would be unable to stand erect, walk comfortably or sit for longer than ten minutes. I was no longer able to lead a normal life. No skiing, hiking, biking, walking etc. I was missing time at work. A friend recommended Dr. James Whittlesey. I had never been to a chiropractor before. I am very pleased with my treatment and Dr. Whittlesey’s wonderful attitude has my attitude about chiropractic. I regret not coming here 3 years ago.

I was in chronic pain and was having frequent migraines when I first saw Dr. James Whittlesey.  I have been to many specialists including, neurologists and orthopedic surgeons without relief or a solution. I heard about him from a friend who swore by him. Right away I was impressed by Dr. Whittlesey’s friendly manner and professionalism.  He seemed to know  just what was causing  my pain.

I felt better after my very first visit. After a few sessions my pain and headaches were completely gone. It has been a few years since my first appointment. Occasionally when I start to feel out of balance I return for treatment.

Dr. Whittlesey truly gave me my life back. I highly recommend him to everyone who is in pain and is seeking relief.

Dr. James Whittlesey has significantly decreased my chronic pain problems and also acute pain problems through his various modalities.  He has also increased my understanding of my body and taught me methods to prevent problems.  I also rely on him to reset my nervous system when I start to notice any balance problem.  I highly recommend him for achieving optimum health.
