Dr. Rachel Whyte

Chiropractor
she/them

Dr. Rachel is a doc originally from Canada who has a passion for self-care and functional movement. Her love for dance and weight-lifting is what led her to study exercise science and physical fitness. From there she decided to pursue a career in Chiropractic medicine so she could help others reach their fitness goals, prevent and rehabilitate injuries, improve function, and get them back to doing what they love. She understands that wellness is a journey and not a destination and lifelong self-care is of the utmost importance. What feeds her love for this field the most is seeing her patients get excited about their health journey, watching them take back control of their lives, and feel confident in their bodies’ abilities, whatever that looks like for them.

It’s important to Dr. Rachel that when you’re in her care you feel safe, respected, and cared for. She knows that seeing a chiropractor for the first time can be intimidating and good communication and a safe space are some of the ways she helps mitigate this. Dr. Rachel meets the patient where they are that day and delivers individualized care with a focus on restoring function, decreasing symptomatology, and optimizing quality of life.

Dr. Rachel studied Chiropractic at the University of Western States where she graduated with degrees in Human Biology and Chiropractic Medicine. She spent her undergraduate studying Kinesiology at the University of Alberta with a focus on exercise science and physical fitness.

Dr. Rachel uses diversified adjusting techniques for joint dysfunction in both the spine and extremities. She also utilizes soft tissue manipulative therapy techniques such as the pin and stretch technique, fascial scraping, and cupping therapy. Dr. Rachel’s treatment room is equipped with a flexion-distraction table which helps decompress the lumbar spine and alleviate pain, especially for those with disc injuries and/or lumbar nerve root compression. She also prescribes rehabilitation exercises and lifestyle modifications so you can stay out of pain and take your health into your own hands at home. Aside from everyday aches and pains, some common sports injuries she treats include plantar fasciitis, muscle strains, ankle sprains, and whiplash injuries, amongst others.
