Some chiropractors take additional training in order to better serve their patients.
Dr. Whyte has taken many hours of additional training in extremity chiropractic adjusting. He credits Dr. Mally, Dr. Charrette and Dr. Hearon for expanding his knowledge in the art of extremity adjusting. Extremity adjustments can be used to correct problems with the extremities (TMJ, ribs, shoulder, elbow, wrist, fingers, hip, knee, ankle, foot and toes).
Extremity adjustment is used to correct joint subluxations anywhere in
the body other than the spine. When any joint does not move properly, it stretches
the attached ligaments, triggering sensory receptors in the brain. The result
is pain in the affected joint. The brain sends a signal back to the adjacent muscles,
reducing their strength protecting the area from injury.
Chiropractic extremity adjustment of the subluxated extremity (ankle, wrist etc.) by a properly trained chiropractor restores the stretched ligament to its normal length. The brain then allows full strength to return to the adjacent muscles. Pain and swelling also decreases immediately.
Sometimes lax or overstretched ligaments and tendons make a joint unstable and
let it move too much. In this case, adjusting the joint alone is not enough to correct
the problem. Strengthening exercises and perhaps orthotics must be used to permit
the ligament to tighten and restore stability to the joint.
Chiropractic extremity adjustments provides excellent results for many patients and often helps
them avoid having surgery.
In our office all patient's being examined for foot problems are scanned using 3-D foot scanner. The information obtained from this scanner can provide valuable information regarding the cause of the foot complaint. Once the problem has been determined chiropractic extremity adjustments and custom foot orthotics are used to correct and maintaining proper foot mechanics/alignment.
This is a testimonial of one of our very satisfied clients. This client prior to being a client had spent over 100,000 dollars on treatments and was no longer able to work. He reported seeing over 50 different alternative and medical professionals. His condition improved by 80% within 6 visits with the precise correction of subluxations found in his left ankle.

After suffering from a broken fibula 7 years ago, I am finally feeling some relief from the foot pain that never ever seemed to go away. Finally a window of opportunity has opened and I can begin to get my life and the lifestyle back on track. The biggest THANK YOU to Barry and his staff."Leo Vallee
