Testimonial

  • ""Dr. Barry Whyte is an excellent chiropractor. As a senior client, who has a kidney transplant, I was concerned about the intensity of chiropractor. After several treatments, over a six week time span, my body is now flexible and pain free. (And I was in pain) Dr. Whyte utilized state of the art technology on my neck without any stress or strain. Dr. Whyte is funny, kind and listens to his patients. Thanks to all staff and Dr. Barry Whyte...Sincerely, ""

  • "I recently moved to Nanaimo and needed to continue with my chiropractic adjustments. I did a Google search and found Atlas Chiropractic and Dr. Barry Whyte. He has been getting me back into shape, both with Ultralign and manual adjustments. Personally, I prefer to "kick it old school" and get manual adjustments, but if you are someone who is nervous about chiropractic care, then the Ultralign adjustments would be more suitable, as they don't involve the same type of manipulation. My back has been getting better and better over the past few weeks and I would highly recommend Dr. Whyte and his services."
