Subluxations of the spine are often direct contributors to weight gain. Nerves throughout the spinal column connect the brain to the rest of the human body. When there are misalignments along these pathways, communication is compromised and signals, such as those that control hunger and eating cues can be affected.

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.
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.
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.
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.
If you work any physical labor job then you know you always go home with ache and pains! Sometimes three days later you are debilitated and have to crawl or use a can to even reach the bathroom ! Just all in a days work but thanks to DR Desalvo I am able to do my job with limited to NO aches and pains! Thank you greatly for that! He and his staff are marvelous and I true see and feels very confident they will my body going for years to come! I HIGHLY recommend them for a healthier life style! Trust me at 49 &6’2″ tall lets just 250 lbs it is hard to find a person is willing and very experienced to keep these bones and body going ! Lol but DR Desalvo and his staff have done it ! THANK YOU so much!
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.
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.
Been seeing Dr DeSalvo for many years. He has helped me with hip, neck and now lower back pain. I highly recommend him for all your chiropractic needs.
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
