Dr. Whitaker has the belief that patient problems should be treated with the least invasive approach first. He then moves toward more invasive approaches if less invasive treatments fail. At Idaho Joint and Spine we believe that every patient is unique and should have a treatment plan tailored to their individual needs. This approach minimizes the need for costly surgery. It improves quality of life and allows patients to live life to the fullest.

Dr. Whitaker’s unique educational background and training as a massage therapist, osteopath and physiatrist allows him to utilize multiple tools to individualize patient care. This makes him the right choice to help you maximize your ability to do the things you love.
