•   Dr. Whalen is simply the best!  I arrived to town on a wellness and fitness retreat only to wake up morning one and realized my back and ankle were out of alignment.  Dr. Whalen graciously saw me same day and her adjustments were spot on!  My back & sciatica were better immediately and my lower leg no longer hurts from my ankle being out.  She could tell where my problem areas were just by touching me.  She helped me even more effectively than my OD at home that gives me adjustments.  I tend to be picky when it comes to adjustments and not always the easiest to adjust, so I cannot say enough positive things about Dr. Whalen.  Now if I could only get her to move to Boulder! :)

      She is one of the best chiropractors downtown! She used to be located in our building on Kettner, but is well worth the short walk down Broadway to her new spot.

    I own a wellness studio and we trust referring our clients to her. All have nothing but the best things to say!

      I am a runner and I'm currently training for the Boston Marathon. Unfortunately, I  pulled my SI joint out of alignment running too fast without warming up on the treadmill.  After I did it I couldn't take a step without sharp pain in my low back.  I went to see Dr. Whalen for the first time about a week and a half ago, and I remember thinking how hard it was to walk to her office from the elevator.  It seemed like a mile, with each step causing sharp pain.  Dr. Whalen patiently listened to my story and then spent about an hour working on me.  By the time I left I felt better, but still had a lot of pain. Two more treatments since then and I am feeling so much better! The elevator walk to the office is back to an easy stroll and, with my adjustment today, she got my SI back in alignment and my pain went almost completely away! Dr. Whalen is such a kind, and caring individual and she really listens to you and thinks about things to help you.  She teaches you exercises to strengthen your weak areas and stretches to relieve the tight areas. It's so apparent that she really cares about her patients and you never feel like she's rushing to get you out of there.  Her rates are also really reasonable.  If you are looking for a chiropractor, or if you've never tried one and you're wondering if they can help you with your pain, I recommend that you look no further.  Dr. Whalen is wonderful, you won't find anyone better in San Diego.

      Dr. Whalen is a true professional who genuinely cares for her clients. After being involved in a motor accident, she helped re-adjust my back and neck to overcome the pain and tenderness I experienced from the whipplash. I always look forward to my visits with her because I know I am in excellent hands and that she has my best interest at heart. Dr. Whalen would also text me to ensure I was following my care plan of regular icing and taking the natural anti-inflammatory she recommended. I have already referred her to my friends and family so what are you waiting for?

      Dr. Whalen is a miracle worker! I came to her with severe lower back pain after a mishap at the squat rack from the gym earlier that day. She was able to fit me in the same day I called. She is extremely knowledgeable and very gentle. I've been going to chiropractors for years now, but she definitely has a much more gentle and holistic approach than most. Dr. Whalen adjusted me and sent me home with a goodie bag that included an ice pack for my back, pain relief roll on gel, a few brochures and even some Hershey kisses- so nice! I was certain my pain would last throughout the week but i felt almost entirely back to normal within 2 days! My back is pretty injury prone and i do not usually recover that quickly, so her technique truly works. Her office is very clean and relaxing and she puts so much thought and care into her services. You can tell she truly cares about your health. I absolutely recommend Going to her, you won't regret it. Thank you Dr. Whalen!

      Dr. Jacqueline Whalen is extremely gifted and effective.  She takes a holistic approach to treatment and has helped me through a back & neck injury caused by a car accident. Her knowledge and understanding of the body is second to none. Her office is conveniently located just outside Little Italy in downtown San Diego. Dr. Whalen is kind, understanding, patient and capable of helping patients with a wide variety of health problems. Her office is very nicely appointed and a pleasure to visit. If you need an x-ray, long-term treatment or a one time adjustment, this is the Chiropractor you should visit!

She specializes in many essential practices that are fundamental to the wellbeing of working adults.  Dr. Whalen is extremely knowledgeable about actions that will improve your physical and mental health! I feel very comfortable around her and I look forward to my next appointment.

      Quite simply the best chiropractor around. I've been to 4 chiropractors/physical therapists over the last 9years for chronic sciatic pain. Not only did I not find relief in the past, but by the time I found Dr. Whalen, my list of problems had increased to chronic neck & shoulder pain & migraines. I've been seeing Dr. Whalen for close to 6 months, and my sciatic pain is nearly eliminated - I can't remember the last time it bothered me. My shoulder pain is significantly less, and I know when it bothers me that I haven't been doing the things Dr. Whalen has assigned to me - stretching, taking work breaks, taking walks, icing my neck. She has identified the sources of my problems, and that has gone a long way to helping me make sure things don't get worse again. She is very attentive and holistic - she even knew one day when I came in that I had eaten way too much sugar that week, from the inflammation in my spine. I trust her completely and am so thankful I was referred to her!

      Dr Whalen is a phenomenal chiropractor.  I have suffered from chronic neck and back pain.  She is very attentive to her patients needs.  She takes the time to find the exact maligned vertebrae and adjust them precisely.  I have been to several chiropractors throughout my life.  Dr Whalen is by far the best.  The overall health and wellness of her patients is very important to her.  She will set up long term care plans that help you get the extended care you need without going broke doing it.  She goes above and beyond what is expected from a health care professional.  I recommend Dr Whalen to anyone that needs to feel better, even if you have tried other chiropractors.
