The Doctor

Dr. Janelle Whitehead, D.C.

Doctor of Chiropractic


Dr. Janelle Whitehead is a Native Texan and one of 7 chiropractors in her family. In high school, Dr. Whitehead worked as an assistant at her father's chiropractic clinic in Perryton, Texas. Through this opportunity, she accompanied her dad to numerous chiropractic and nutrition seminars throughout the US and Europe. Although chiropractic and natural health-care have always "been in her blood," she did not immediately seek out the wonderful career path of chiropractic school. After receiving her Bachelors in Speech Communication from the University of Texas at Arlington, Dr. Whitehead spent a year in England working for the Marriott corporation as a FitClub (children's fitness) instructor. Upon returning to the US, she was hired by Southwest Airlines' reservation department in 1998, and went on to become a Team Supervisor until 2000. While managing a team of 50 reservation sales agents, Dr. Whitehead's passion for health-care re-emerged. Due to working the "grave-yard shift at the SWA Reservation center, she had extra "free time" and picked up a part-time job as a chiropractic assistant to "support her travel hobby." It was working again for a local Arlington chiropractor that she determined that she could really help more people understand the amazing field of chiropractic, by simply going back to school. Finally, after completing 2 years' worth of Pre-Medical classes (in 8 months), Dr. Whitehead began Post-Graduate studies at Parker.

She received her Doctorate from Parker University in 2004. Dr. Whitehead worked as a Nutritional Consultant for Standard Process/MediHerb and covered over 1300 doctor accounts in Arizona, New Mexico, and Nevada. In 2005, she was named Arizona District Delegate for her involvement in the Arizona Association of Chiropractic. After running a successful wellness clinic in Phoenix, AZ (2005-2008), Dr. Whitehead returned back to Texas with her family. In 2009, she opened Texas Alpha Wellness Center on Historic Main Street in Grapevine, Texas. Son, Joshua, was born shortly after the opening of the Grapevine practice!

Dr. Whitehead has completed over 700 Post-Graduate Clinical hours solely in nutrition. She has over 15 Years extensive training in whole-food nutrition and herbal medicine. In addition to private practice, Dr.Whitehead's passion for nutritional/wellness shines though as an educator and professional speaker.
