Headaches can cause long-term damage mentally and physically, and easily affects day-to-day life.

Headaches can cause debilitating symptoms:
Headaches are something that many people deal with, but it is not a necessary part of life It occurs as migraines, tension-type headaches or cluster headaches, which are all considered headaches but each have specific qualities in diagnosis.

- Chronic fatigue
- Irritability and disturbed concentration

Stop your headaches without medication:
Headaches commonly occur when spinal bones in the neck do not support the head properly. A misalignment causes irritation to the nerve structure and interference in the flow of nerve energy throughout the body. Stress and bad posture easily leads to chronic migraines, which why many people who work at a desk suffer from them.
By receiving the gentle and effective treatment of chiropractic care, you will have subluxations and stress removed from the spine. This decrease in misalignments will help to decrease or eliminate headaches! With chiropractic care, you get the natural approach for headache relief. Whether you suffer from tension headaches, migraine headaches, cluster headaches, stress headaches, anxiety related headaches, neck pain related headaches or cervico-genetic headaches, relief is possible.
Spinal decompression therapy for headache relief
Chiropractic treatment with spinal decompression is the health science that has been most successful in that it immediately goes to the cause of headaches, and in many cases halts the progress of a dangerous disease. Spinal decompression involves stretching the spine, using a traction table or similar motorized device, with the goal of relieving pain and increasing functionality in the spine which alleviates the symptoms of chronic headaches.

I have had ongoing lower back issues and had been going to an old school chiropractor that wasn’t helping but hurting me further. I reached out to Dr DeSalvo and found him to be kind, accommodating and a great chiropractor. His office has all the newest equipment and his staff is friendly and efficient. You won’t be disappointed Our whole family now uses him
If you are searching for the best in the business, look no more. Dr. DeSalvo and his staff are just that…the best. Professional service and personable customer service are usually impossible to find, but they do exist here! Dr. DeSalvo was able to diagnose, treat, and prescribe the exact exercises and adjustments I’d been needing for years. His staff helped me stay organized with all of my appointments and always treated me with A+ respect and warmth. This place is top notch through and through!
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!!
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++++
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 went to Dr. DeSalvo with horrible neck pain, my symptoms were constant headaches from the pain in my neck, and during sleep I didn’t want to move because it hurt so much. After X-rays, it revealed that I have a degenerative disc in my neck. After two weeks visiting Dr. DeSalvo my headaches were gone and I was sleeping great. I still continue to see him as my issue is a work in progress. I would highly recommend anyone who has back or neck pain to Dr. DeSalvo. I fully trust him and his staff.
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.
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.
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!
