Benefits of Chiropractic Care

Findings From the Largest Study of Its kind on Chiropractic Wellness Care

Dr. Omri Sitton and Dr. Thomas Whittington worked side by side before Dr. Whittington retired. Dr. Whittington had the distinct honor of participating in the largest study ever conducted on the benefits of Network Chiropractic Care. 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.
