•   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!

      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.

      I had suffered from extreme shoulder and neck pain. It was pretty much intolerable. I ended up visiting Dr. Whalen as a last ditch effort to see if there was any way that she could help me. I had tingly in my arm, my pinky twitched and my neck and shoulder on my left side were constantly sore and in pain. I really didn't have any hope. But still I went to see if there was anything that could be done. She quickly took x-rays and could see what other doctors had already told me-- that I had degenerative disc disease. I was only 30 at the time, but everyone thought that it was due to studying, bending my head forward constantly reading, and carrying around heavy books (I had just finished law school). She immediately started me on a regular visit plan where I went in twice a week (pricey :/) but the help was AMAZING. She has a really special gift of knowing right where you hurt and how to fix you. She is also compassionate and is interested in how you are taking care of yourself. She always asks me if I am getting proper rest, a good diet, and am not stressing myself out too much (of course the answer to all of those is no, but at least she cares); she has helpful health tips. I strongly strongly recommend coming to see Dr. Whalen if you want to help your body feel good. The pain that I was experiencing was horrible, and mainstream doctors said there was nothing they could do for me until my discs got so bad that they needed replacement or surgery. I have been seeing Dr. Whalen for about 2 years and I have no more pain! I go back only for maintenance (which is super important to staying pain free). It is expensive for only 10-15 minutes worth of cracking, but hey, it's your health. :) She also calls me on my birthday to say happy birthday! If that's not a good Dr I dont know what is.
