The only reason I went here in the first place was to pick up my mom from her appointment for her shoulder. I walked in with this goofy limp (I fell out of a tree in college and when I over do it in a workout I look like Igor) and they asked if I wanted to give it a try. He popped everything back into place and I started going regularly. After visiting DeSalvo I have no back pain, no knee pain, and my migraines reduced significantly. 10/10 would recommend.
Chiropractor in Novato, CA
Chiropractor in Novato, CA: Chiropractic care is based on the diagnosis and manipulation of misalignments of the joints, especially those of the spinal column. These misalignments can cause other disorders by affecting the nerves, muscles, and organs.
Chiropractic adjustments can help promote the body’s innate healing ability:
Chiropractic care is a non-invasive treatment that can help with many issues. Not only can it help align the body, but it can help with other issues that such as sleep disorders, digestive issues and mental clarity. There are countless issues that chiropractic care can help with, either as a primary route of treatment or as supplemental with other treatment programs.
Some of the common issues that chiropractic patients visit our facility with:
- Back Pain and Neck Pain
- Whiplash and Auto Injuries
- Degenerative disc disease, herniated or bulging discs
- Sinus issues or allergies
- Immune system issues
- Numbness, tingling or pain in the extremities
- and more!
We utilize gentle, low-force adjustment techniques:
Chiropractic care works with gentle manual manipulation to correct subluxations in the spine. When the vertebrae are out of alignment, it can cause terrible symptoms, such as pain and other long-term ailments. Our experienced doctors will work with you to help gently move your body back into place.
Along with chiropractic care, we provide many other therapies that help with your treatment plan. Treatments such as spinal decompression, quantum neurology, physiotherapy and pain neutralization are available right in the office.
Cold laser therapy is also a great supplemental tool to treat sore, tight muscles and scar tissue in the body. We use a MR4 super pulse laser which utilizes low-level laser light to accelerate healing, reduce inflammation, stimulate nerve function and increase vascular activity.

My vehicle was rear ended in 2013. I suffered from whiplash. I’ll never forget the day that my neck was loose enough for an adjustment by Dr. DeSalvo. So much pressure and pain was released with one swift movement. To loosen it up enough, I had a few visits prior which consisted of an exam, massage, use of an electrothingy that hurts so good. I came back again this month because I tweaked my neck moving stuff. In two visits, I’m as good as new. Dr. DeSalvo is amazing. Reasonably priced and his front office staff (Lynn) rocks. I texted her on a Sunday asking her appointment availability and she got me in first thing Monday morning. A++++
Dr. DeSalvo is one of the most awesome human beings I have had the privilege of meeting and working with. I love his take on life and the fact that he has such concern for the well being of people. I love that he is such an awesome dad and he is committed to doing his part and making life around him better. Thank you for all you do and I so look forward to how your impact in your community as you launch your Weight Loss program and the success it offers. Cheers. I highly recommend this Clinic if you are the type of person that wants to get to the root of your health issues and be around people to get you to your best.
I’ve been coming to Dr DeSalvo for almost two years. My appreciation for what he’s done for my neck pain cannot be expressed easily with words. I wish I could post before and after pictures of my posture and my smile. I’ve completely forgotten what that neck pain feels like. When I came to him in September of 2013, I couldn’t lift my head off of the pillow. I literally had to have my dear hubby help me sit up. Now I regularly look left, right, up and down with ZERO pain. ZERO. That’s a HUGE deal.
I’m now experiencing some lower back pain due to my lack of exercise and having too much weight hanging about the middle of my body. We’re working together to alleviate that pain. That’s the key to DeSalvo Chiropractic…working TOGETHER. We’re a team. He takes the time to find out what’s really going on in your life and works to help you take steps to live your best life. Sometimes I don’t follow his advice…and he’s got a way of gently but firmly reprimanding that makes me WANT to follow his advice. It’s like he’s saying, “Hey! We’re part of a team and you’re not helping the team.” ok. OK. I’ll do my exercises! Ugh!
If you’re in any pain whatsoever at all, do yourself a favor and call Dr. DeSalvo. I promise, you won’t regret it.
DeSalvo Chiropractic can and will help you.
I have struggled with neck, back, hip, and head aches since I was a young teen due to a spinal injury that healed improperly. I developed bad habits such as cracking my neck, back, sternum, and hips this way and that way in order to try and relieve the tension from my spine. Last year something changed for the worse. After popping my neck, sharp pains would shoot down my spine and into my leg with a migraine soon to follow, but I would get dull pain and headaches if I didn’t pop my neck, so relief seemed unattainable.
A few months ago, I ran across my deck, and my lower back pinched, my hip popped, and my right leg tightened bringing me to my knees. This became more frequent until it was too painful to walk, drive, sit down, or fall asleep. I became a frigid and angry person at a much too young age and I found myself desperate for help in Doug DeSalvo’s office.
I was hesitant at first- a non-believer- but after my first adjustment, I learned the truth behind the science and healing power of spinal care, and that our spines are the core component to a functioning nervous system. All those years I thought I was adjusting my neck for myself, but instead I increased the tension throughout my whole body by taking the curve out of my neck!
Doug knows what he is doing, and he doesn’t leave you out of the loop while he’s doing it. Over the course of the past two months, he has adjusted, educated, and freed me from my pain. My headaches left after only one adjustment and the tension and sharp pain in my neck, back, and hips have been diminishing every day since. I am now sleeping through the night.
I highly recommend DeSalvo Chiropractic if you have headaches, back pain, neck pain, trouble sleeping, depression, or like me, just completely out of whack. Doug DeSalvo will help you get it back.
Dr. DeSalvo is amazing! I see him for regular tune ups for old injuries. He keeps me moving and I’m so grateful. I’d be a mess without his expertise and care. His staff is kind, responsive and cheerful. I always leave feeling lighter and back to my normal self. I can’t recommend Dr. DeSalvo enough!!
When I first walked into De Salvo Chiropractic as a new patient a few weeks ago my back was locked up tight with severe pain. Through the attentive care of Doug De Salvo and his great staff I am able to now stand up taller and have a wider range of motion. I have been to several chiros over the years and find his technique aims more toward finesse and accuracy which has not only helped my back but my overall physical and mental health.
Several years ago I suffered a spinal compression fracture that resulted in permanent damage to my T12 vertebrae. I have been plauged with constant back pain for decades. Through the years I have seen literally dozens of specialist who have not been able to provide more than slight if any relief from discomfort.
One day I was in so much pain I could barely walk and thought I would try a chiropractor. I began a search for the chiropractors with best training and user ratings in the bay area. I found that Dr. De Salvo was rated tops so I made an appointment and due to my acute situation he saw me right away. After the initial assessment he began his treatment. I could tell immediately he knew what he was doing. It was obvious he had how I can only describe as “very intelligent hands.” At completion of the treatment I could stand straight and was a bit sore but the pain was almost completely gone.
I have been seeing Doctor Doug now a couple of times a month now for almost three years and am happy to report I am mostly pain free. I recommend him without reservation.
I have been suffering with back pain for almost 3 years from a fall! I’ve seen two back doctors, two orthopedist for my hip and numerous physical therapist! Also 3 cortisone shots! Finally decided to try Doug for chiropractic! Well I’m sorry I waited so long! He has done wonders for me! I feel about 75% better! And I can sleep at night without waking up in pain! I am so happy I found Doug! Highly recommend him! He’s awesome! Thanks Doug!
Dr. DeSalvo and his staff are the best at what they do. I have been going there for years whenever I need an adjustment or ongoing treatment for various ailments. Dr. DeSalvo’s approach is second to none. He has an amazing ability to pinpoint injuries and prescribe the proper treatment and strength exercises to get his patients back to a place of comfort and alignment. His staff is always so friendly and accommodating, and they have been able to get me in on a number of occasions on very short notice. I feel very fortunate to have been referred to DeSalvo Chiropractic, and happily refer them to anyone that is in need of chiropractic services. They are the BEST!
