Patients Ages Seen
Dr. Whitcomb maintains a primary interest in acute/subacute spine problems, particularly occupational back pain or injury. Chiropractic treatment will be provided in evidence-based, and typically a short-term fashion, while stressing patient re-activation and pro-activity. Chiropractic management will usually be integrated with other services, such as medical pain management and functional rehabilitation. Additional services to the chiropractic patient may include: CT and MRI scanning, pain management/spinal injection therapy, physical and occupational therapy, electrodiagnostics and/or neurosurgical consultation through the MCW Physicians and Clinics System.
