My Work With Network Spinal Care

Doctor Michael Whelan graduated from Los Angeles College of Chiropractic in 1987. Following graduation, he worked in a busy multi-disciplinary practice in Mission Viejo alongside a chiropractor, orthopedic surgeon, podiatrist, and neurologist. Dr. Whelan’s early role was in-take of all new patients, performing and reading X-rays, patient history, physical examinations, administering multiple physical therapy modalities and designing care plans.

After three and a half years, Dr. Whelan decided to venture out on his own. Although chiropractic and the medical treatments were somewhat successful at reducing pain temporarily, he recognized that people were not getting much healthier and wanted a more holistic approach.

As Dr. Whelan explored and studied different techniques in chiropractic, he became aware of this amazing new approach to chiropractic and healing called Network Chiropractic.

He worked on staff at the Network retreats and has developed his own artistry of the work as he has adjusted (entrained) over 150,000 people the last 24 years. Network Spinal Analysis is an inside/out approach to healing and wholeness. Going beyond just the physical aspects of health, it is a powerful tool for transformation, growth and human potential. Dr. Whelan is inspired daily by the extraordinary healing power that lies dormant in all of us, once revealed, becomes the agent of change in body/mind/spirit.

He attended the first west coast training of Network Chiropractic in 1991 and it opened up a whole new perspective on health and healing for him and his patients. Dr. Whelan has spent thousands of hours learning from Donald Epstein, the founder, and developer of what is now called Network Spinal Analysis (NSA)..

With NSA or Network Chiropractic, the goal is to gently assist the innate healing powers of your body to work for you. NSA is administered with gentle touches to the spine.
