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.

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.
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.
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++++
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.
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.
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.
