Dr. Whitleey Jagnanan Chiropractor

Dr. Whitley Jagnanan, D.C.

Hey there, Dr. Whitley here! You're probably wondering who I am and how I got here. I was a really sick kid. Colic, allergies, asthma... you name it, I had it. This continued from infancy to a young adult. I was a total nerd, loved science experiments, and from about the age of 4 years old, I knew I wanted to help people.

​In high school, I was a competitive cheerleader (don't hold that one against me) and injured my back during a practice. I went to a chiropractor for a few visits, but honestly I didn't notice any difference. I was flexible, young and overall pretty healthy. I wasn't sure what this was doing for me and I didn't see or feel any difference in my spine. I chalked it up to the fact that "chiropractic just isn't for me". Boy, was I wrong!

​In college, I had awful migraine headaches. I mean AWFUL! I would have debilitating migraines 3-5 times a week. On top of that, I was taking experimental drugs to try to stop or lessen my migraines headaches. Nothing helped. Until one day, I met a chiropractor at an event I was working at. He assured me he could find the cause to my headaches and help me with my suffering. I explained to him my previous chiropractic experience and told him "chiropractic wasn't for me" (yes, you can laugh). Somehow, this doctor convinced me to come into his office. As soon as I stepped in the door, I knew he was different. The office smelled, looked and felt different than the previous chiropractor I had seen before.

This chiropractor examined my spine in a way that had never been done before, explained to me what was going on and started adjusting me. Within weeks I started coming off of my migraine drugs and was amazed at what a difference chiropractic was making in my health. At this point, the doctor asked me what I was going to college for. I explained to him that I was pre-med (because that's what all smart nerdy kids say they want to do in life - be a doctor). He asked me the question that changed the path of my life forever, "If you didn't like taking drugs, why do you want to prescribe them to other people?" At that moment, I knew I had to become a chiropractor. I knew I had to be different too. I knew my office needed to give people that gut feeling that this was different. I knew that I needed to give people explanations, give people the cause and give people hope. This was the moment I decided how I would help people. And the rest may be history. OR, it may be the future of your journey to health.

Dr Morgan Harris Chiropractor

Dr. Morgan Harris, D.C.

Hi! I’m Dr. Morgan and I am passionate about chiropractic care specifically for mothers and babies. I have loved and benefited from chiropractic care my whole life and known firsthand how beneficial it is for growth and development. My grandfather was my chiropractor throughout my childhood and instilled in me his passion for community and patient care even as he aided my own development through his adjustments.

Because of this, I have always gotten joy from helping people and contributing to a community. When, in high school, I fell in love with physics and considered being and engineer, I realized that I would miss the direct contact with the people that would be effected by the work. Then I realized that being a chiropractor would allow me to help individuals directly as well as use the knowledge of how things move and work together that had fascinated me about physics. Because really the body is a marvel of engineering and as a chiropractor I get to help that marvel function optimally. I became fascinated by biomechanics or the movement of the body. At the center of that movement is the spine and if the spine is aligned and functioning properly the rest of the body can too.

If I can help a person’s body function at its best, then I can help give that person the tools to live their best life. My research into neck biomechanics showed that how a person’s head sits on their neck can affect their likelihood to have a concussion, and how their head sits on their neck is directly related to their development in infancy and childhood. This is how I came to specialize in pediatric chiropractic. Better performance for athletes, and in fact, everyone stems directly from how they develop, from birth as they are learning how to hold their head and use their bodies. I knew that this is where I wanted to focus my practice. Why fix a problem later that could be prevented from the beginning? Proper spinal development can enable a child to use their bodies throughout their lives in the most holistic way so that their bodies can do whatever they are asked to do.
