Dr. Whittington was chosen to participate and has received recognition from the Department of NeuroAnatomy and NeuroBiology at the University of California at Irvine for his contributions to the project.
What are the Benefits of Chiropractic Care?
Surprising benefits were discovered in a study compiled by the University of California Irvine Medical School Department of Neuroanataomy and Neurobiology. This study which Dr. Whittington and his patients participated and received recognition for found that of 2,818 patients receiving chiropractic care in the United States and around the world, demonstrated that care is associated with profound and statistically significant improvement in self-reported wellness areas. Note that benefits go beyond pain relief. Patients reported an increased quality of life and decreased stress.
The year’s long study found that chiropractic patients achieved specific outcomes related to pain, mental outlook as well as overall health. These benefits included fewer colds and flu, less pain, decreased stress, and much more.

Those people who participated in the chiropractic research study reported significant improvement in self-rated perceptions of health and overall quality of life. The reported outcomes reflect a large positive clinical effect in every health-related domain investigated, which was positively correlated with length of time under care.
This means patients who had been under treatment the longest time reported greater perceived improvement in wellness and benefits of chiropractic care.
Dr. Whittington is proud to have been a part of this landmark study on chiropractic benefits and has been recognized for his contribution by the University of California at Irvine.
