From Pain to Wellness:
Our Clients’ Journeys with Chiropractic Care

I met Barry Whyte for chiropractic treatment in Nanaimo when I was at the lowest point in my life. I was suffering a double herniated disc in L4 combined with arthritis in my hips. When I first arrived at his Nanaimo chiropractic office I couldn’t stand straight or walk farther than where my car was parked. Sleeping at night consisted of lying on the floor with my legs on a chair. My career was on hold because I was unable to work more than 15 minutes. My general practitioner was prescribing different drugs that did nothing for me other than add constipation to the list of challenges. The doctor also recommended and scheduled discectomy surgery. Barry saved me. He did this with a logical series of chiropractic treatments combined with a grouping of daily core exercises and calm caring advice. Today I can sit, stand, walk, sleep and work again. I avoided surgery and take no drugs. I continue with the core exercises every day. Words can’t express the thanks and gratitude I feel toward both Barry and the Nanaimo chiropractic staff at Atlas Chiropractic and Body Balance. Thank you all.

Dr. Shook is wonderful. First visit was a complete check. He explained that my shin pain was actually from my back. Could not sleep on either side due to my hips. I went a couple times a week then longer between as I was doing so well. Highly recommend him as well as the front desk ladies. Always so nice to deal with!

I fell on my tail bone and was in pain for more than a year and decided to see a Chiropractor for treatment. I could barely walk when I had my first visit with Travis. He explained in detail what was happening in my lower back. After my very first session, the pain was almost gone, and after a couple of sessions, my pain was very minimal. Travis is a wonderful Chiropractor and I will see him again in the future if needed. Travis is Professional and gentle Chiropractor. Thank you Travis for fixing me!

I’ve been a Chiropractor for 25 years and have been adjusted by many Chiropractors. Dr. Barry is awesome! After 1 adjustment, my pelvis was much less twisted and I was headache free. His is a unique integrated approach he has created and earned over time. He combines a “clearing” of the upper neck with a restoration of the mechanics of the low back, hips and pelvis. The results are phenomenal. And he has great staff and a direct, caring approach that never makes me feel hurried, I am very impressed!

Barry is an amazing chiropractor. His front office is beautiful and the receptionist is so kind and friendly. Barry takes the time to listen to your concerns, explains what he is going to do, asks what you are feeling and where you need help. I trust his knowledge and skill when I see him work. Because of Barry I don’t have to take pain medication every day anymore. Thank you

I am writing this letter to say how good I feel since seeing Dr. Whyte. I am a woman in my early 70’s and had a pulled muscle in my neck and shoulder. I must say that Dr. Whyte was recommended by a good friend of mine who has seen Dr. Whyte many times and has nothing but good to say about him. I have seen the doctor several times and I feel so much better. Not only is he good at his job, he is a very caring person, and sympathetic to his patients needs. I definitely would recommend Dr. Whyte to any one who needs a good chiropractor.
