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++++
Cold Laser Therapy in Novato, CA
Cold Laser Therapy in Novato, CA: Cold laser therapy is a non-invasive, painless, low level laser that stimulates the damaged tissues, enhancing the progress of healing and providing relief from pain and inflammation.
Cold laser treatment can help chronic pain and inflammation due to its capability to penetrate the skin and treat soft tissue injuries. It is a proven technique that is very popular in Europe and has been gaining popularity in the states for those seeking effective pain treatments without medication or surgery.
Some of the common issues that cold laser therapy can treat:
- Sports injuries
- Ligament injury
- Muscle strain
- Regeneration of the nerves
- Joint injuries and pains
- Wound healing
Non-invasive and medication-free treatment of muscle injury
When you come in for your sessions, low-level light is applied directly to the problem areas. The tissue then absorbs the light. The body then has a natural reaction to red and near infrared light. This reaction can affect damaged cells that helps promote their regeneration. The laser is not cold, but it is called cold laser therapy because the low levels of light are not enough to heat your body’s tissue.
During the procedure, you’ll feel the device against your skin, but it creates no heat, sound, or vibration. It is completely noninvasive and painless. Most of the time, one treatment will take only a few minutes. You may see results after your first session, but it depends on your condition. Douglas DeSalvo, DC will work with you to formulate the best treatment route to manage your pain.

I have had a chronic knot in my back for over 10 years. Every time we would go on a trip it would go into spasm! I started coming to Doug in February of this year. We went on a 15 day cruise in April and it was the first time in all these years that i did not have a problem! I am now coming in for occassional tune ups. I can’t say thank you enough.
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.
Each time I go to see Dr. DeSalvo, I learn more and more about the body…I appreciate the way both he and Annie take the time to explain things to me…what it is and why it works. I feel very fortunate to be a patient here at this very professional and well run center. I am really looking forward to greater mobility and less lower back pain…and I know I am in the best of hands!
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 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!
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.
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.
Dr. DeSalvo is amazing as my husband had severe back pain and he helped him relieve his pain. It eventually resulted in surgery but Dr. DeSalvo helped my husband with relief of sever back pain from an injury. I also had neck pain and Dr. DeSalvo helped me with my neck pain and how to alleviate pain in the future. He is amazing and also knows the spine and neck so helps alleviate pain and also stretching and ways to help alleviate severe pain. He listens and is so aware of his patients and takes his time to help his patients. My husband and I would also like to say the office staff both Lynn and others on staff are wonderful so welcoming into the office. As well when I have called the office with changes or needing to see the Doctor Lynn does her best to accommodate the patients needs and always finds a way to fit you in on a very busy schedule.
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.
