Dr. Timothy Whelan, D.C.

Dr. Timothy Whelan

Doctor of Chiropractic

Dr. Whelan’s wife was injured in a motor vehicle accident and in her search for pain relief for 6 months she took strong medication and went to multiple physicians’ and therapist without any benefit. Then thankfully she decided to try a Chiropractor. That visit was the start of a big change in the lives of the Whelan family. Seeing the great results of chiropractic care after so many other healthcare professionals had come up short, Dr. Whelan decided to become a Chiropractor. At that time be thought chiropractic care was just for accident injuries. He had much to learn about the healing art of chiropractic, but the education has been a “gas.”
Dr. Whelan began his pre-chiropractic education studying the basic sciences such as inorganic chemistry, organic chemistry, biology, along with basic physiology and anatomy courses. After completing his studies, Dr. Whelan was accepted to Northwestern College of Chiropractic (now Northwestern Health Sciences) in Bloomington MN. During his four years at Northwestern he obtained a doctorate in chiropractic and a bachelor of science in human biology, where his courses included; gross anatomy, cell biology, spinal anatomy, embryology, physiology, microbiology, pathology, orthopedics, biomechanics, physical therapy and chiropractic technique.
Dr. Whelan has always strived to treat each patient as he would a member of his own family. Dr. Whelan is accomplished at a wide variety of chiropractic techniques. For the past three years he has been providing his patients computerized adjustments with the Sigma Instruments Method. This technique is very gentle to the spine while being very assertive to the musculature. Dr. Whelan finds this expedites the healing process and does it without the “crack” that puts off some patients. Most recently Whelan Chiropractic has begun providing Posture Zone rehabilitation to their patients. Posture Zone is comprehensive rehabilitation system that engages patients in the process with fun and effective home exercises that produces outstanding results.
