Why I Chose Chiropractic

Dr. Mark Whitemyer and wife, Kim.

In 1978 I was a Fremont Police Officer and injured my back while jogging to stay in shape. I was in terrible pain and the only thing my medical doctor could offer me was pain medication. I was told that in time I would get better. After two weeks off of work a friend of mine called to tell me that he had made an appointment for me to see his Chiropractor and would be by in 20 minutes to pick me up. When my friend arrived I was still in so much pain I could not get to the car or into the car without help. With my first Chiropractic adjustment I experienced great relief and I was able to walk normally for the first time in weeks. This experience had such an impact on my life that just a few months after that amazing experience I left my job as a police officer and I enrolled in Chiropractic College. Almost 30 years have past since I graduated from Chiropractic School and I still love my profession.

Personal Life

I have been married to my wife and office manager for 38 years. We have 7 children and 11 grandchildren. My wife and I met in high school but didn’t start dating until after I had started college. We enjoy having family time with our children and grandchildren. I love to play ultimate Frisbee and doing triathlons. I love swimming and have been trying to establish a Masters Swim Program here in Oakdale.

The whole Whitemyer family has benefited from regular Chiropractic care and the Chiropractic lifestyle of healthy eating and exercise. I believe the body has the ability to heal itself through a healthy nervous system on most occasions. I also believe that medical care has its place. I receive referrals from medical doctors in town and I work closely with the medical profession when needed.
