Whole Life Chiropractic is a modern facility known for its range of Chiropractic techniques and other services.
We provide advanced spinal correction and chiropractic adjustments utilizing "state of the art" chiropractic techniques. Never in the history of chiropractic care have chiropractors been able to provide the level of help and expertise that is available today. Many of the newest chiropractic techniques are actually safer, more comfortable and more effective than ever before. As a chiropractor who cares about utilizing the most advanced chiropractic techniques, Dr. Thacker has years of training, expertise and experience in helping patients get pain relief for back pain, neck pain, headaches, and other related conditions originating from the spine. Chiropractic care under a trained professional can even be used to prevent injuries and help you achieve total health or wellness.
At Whole Life Chiropractic, we teach our patients how to perform special "blueprint" exercises which can help strengthen and correct the irregularities in their body which may be causing pain. Many of these corrective exercises can actually be performed in the comfort of your own home to help improve the effectiveness of your chiropractic care and spinal correction plan. In addition to skeletal misalignment, you may be experiencing pain that is caused by muscles and connective tissues which are out of their proper place. Other types of pain such as back pain, neck pain, and headaches are caused by muscles and tissues that are being used improperly, causing injuries over time. In each case, targeted corrective exercises and stretches from our experienced chiropractor will help you feel good while also helping your body achieve balance and health.
Many of our patients come to see our chiropractor to address a specific pain symptom such as back pain, neck pain or headaches. While our chiropractor will address each patient's specific condition with chiropractic care, we often find it helpful to "coach" our patients towards achieving a healthier lifestyle. For example, there may be certain activities that you should avoid or do differently to prevent yourself from unintentionally aggravating your particular health challenges. The goal of including lifestyle advice with a chiropractic care plan is to help each and every patient achieve the fulfilling and happy lifestyle they deserve, one that is full of the activities that are enjoyed most. We recognize that every single one of our patients is a whole person, and we use our expertise to help them reach total health and wellness.
What does nutrition have to do with chiropractic care? The goal of chiropractic care is to help patients achieve total health and balance with their body, and as part of that goal we provide specific recommendations on nutritional supplements and healthy food choices. Nutritional counseling by our experienced chiropractic health professionals can assist a patient on their return to optimal health. Do you know which supplements and vitamins are good for you? Do you know how these supplements and vitamins interact with one another? At our Durham chiropractic clinic, we can provide each patient with a structured nutritional program that is based on their individual needs.
There is a saying that an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. Your spinal health is no exception. Posture and spinal screenings by a trained and experienced chiropractor such as Dr. Dophus Thacker can help reveal important health information, unlocking the door to improved health and well-being. In order to help the Durham community, we provide screenings at community events, health fairs and places of employment. Contact us today at 919-474-8400 to arrange a screening at your event or workplace.

"For me, I have always struggled with physical and mental health. When I decided to start going to Dr. Kruse, I have to admit I was hesitant because I was on prescription medication. After telling Dr. Kruse what medication I was on, I braced myself to get a lecture about natural therapies. There was no lecture or feeling of guilt for being on prescription medication. I have to admit I was in shock. Dr. Kruse is and has always been supportive of my decisions on how to treat my mental health. Through the ups and downs of different medications I decided to ask Dr. Kruse about natural therapies and was excited to hear about the resources he provided for me."
"Dr. Kruse has been essential to my physical and mental health. I was in a car accident a few months ago and was so grateful to be able to just walk in to Dr. Kruse’s office the next day and start treatment. Not only has Dr. Kruse been able to get me back on track after my accident but I have also noticed unbelievable changes in my physical health. I thought friendly (knowing you by your first name) family oriented physicians were part of the past…I am pleased to say Dr. Kruse and his staff have proven me wrong and I am honored to be a patient at Kruse Chiropractic."
