I had been suffering from severe, burning neck pain and numbness and tingling in my right hand for four weeks-the pain felt like an 8/10! The burning sensation started at my neck and went all the way down my shoulder blades. I was using heat and ice to soothe the pain, but my MD recommended pain medication before chiropractic. That was not a route I was going to take. I'd been to chiropractor and knew the benefits of chiropractic before visiting Dr. Gallo. I knew that re-adjustments on a regular basis keep the body aligned and can be an excellent form of prevention. Regular treatment can also strengthen weaker areas. My husband has received treatment for his low back, and within hours of his treatment felt much better. I know chiropractic is a highly effective treatment method. Dr. Gallo did not disappoint. His office was friendly and welcoming, and Dr. Gallo is professional but informal and caring. He used several approaches to relieving my pain, and each felt progressively better. I was immediately happy! I've always supported chiropractic and firmly believe in the benefits of chiropractic treatment and methods. To focus on alignment of the spine and other skeletal issues and be able to address more issues without painkillers or surgeries is amazing. I will tell others about my experience. To feel the effects of chiropractic, one must only give it a try!
I had a pain in my left shoulder that began to radiate into my neck and back. It was a constant, deep pain in my left shoulder and lasted four days! I couldn't function without pain relievers and heat, which were only temporary relief and I feared the side effects o fthe medication. I've been seeing Dr. Gallo for about a year, and I knew he could improve my shoulder quickly. Dr. Gallo saw me promptly, and he and his staff, and he and his staff were professional, friendly, and thorough. He recommended another appointment and an ultrasound treatment. Within one day my pain was reduced by 95%! Any discomfort was fleeting and barely even noticed. I know chiropractic care has made it possible for me to continue my career as a photographer. I can work stooped over a newborn for two hours or chase a toddler for an hour, thanks to Dr. Gallo!

After many years of neck pain, stiffness, temporal arthritis, fibromayalgia, polymyalgia rheumatica and overall pain, I made and appointment with Dr. Gallo. On my first visit, I told him of the temporal arthritis, he immediately noticed that my prescription glasses were cutting into my temples and could be causing additional stress on my temporal arteries. I had the glasses refitted and the pain in my temples was gone. I had been taking pain medications, steroids, and had been to several chiropractors before but had not obtained results I wanted. After seeing Dr. Gallo for 1-2 weeks of treatment, I could turn my head while driving to look out my mirrors without neck pain! I continued to get treatment from Dr. Gallo on and off for fibromyalgia and back pain. In July of 2005 I was diagnosed with lung cancer. I stopped treatment with Dr. Gallo during this period. But the day after my surgery I was lying in bed in such pain, I wished Dr. Gallo could help me. Within a day of my surgery, he called me to see how I was doing. I told him that I felt like I was cut open and stretched out like a piece of cattle. My right arm was in so much pain that I couldn't raise it higher than my shoulder. I went to a neurologist, who suggested that there might be nerve damage from the surgery and told me to see an orthopedic surgeon. When I did and the surgeon ran some tests, he recommended and MRI and probably surgery. After everything I'd been through--I said No way. I had had enough. In December of 2005, I called Dr. Gallo. He did and examination on my shoulder and although he thought I might have nerve damage from the surgery, he didn't think I needed more. He began treating me using Chiropractic adjustments, active release muscle work, and physical therapy. Within a short time, I had full range of motion in my right arm and regained all muscle strength without drugs or additional surgery. Now I can get back to my life!
I am a vice president for a consulting firm. My job is very stressful and i get a crick and pain in my neck. I have had headaches for several years, and my MD prescribed Celexa for them. Since my second child was born, I was diagnosed with high blood pressure and have been taking the drugs Diazide and Atenelol for about four years. The headache medication only gives me temporary relief. Massage and Ben-Gay helps to reduce my neck pain but only for a short time. I don't know if the blood pressure medication is even working! I began recieving chiropractic adjustments and muscle release therapy from Dr. Gallo in March of 2004 and had regular treatments for about six months. After the first month, my headaches were just about gone and I had stopped taking the Celexa a few weeks later. After a few months, I stopped taking the Diazide and the Atenelol. I have not had a headache in several months and have been free from neck pain. More importantly, I no longer need to take pharmaceutical drugs that could have potentially harmful side effects. I plan to continue regular treatments and I recommend Dr. Gallo to all my friends.
I am a runner. My body takes a lot of jarring. Since I've seen Dr. Gallo, he has really helped me to take care of me. He gives me great advice as well as great adjustments. I feel lighter on my feet since I've seen him.
Just to add to it, his compassion on my son who is now 14 months old was remarkable. My son was sick with an ear infection and fever just as we arrived to his office. Dr. Gallo gave him a quick adjustment and I noticed that my son was in a much better mood and the fever left him. I don't know if that was just a coincidence, but I was impressed by Dr. Gallo's sense of compassion.
I started having severe neck pain and stiffness, and tingling in the fingers in the right hand. after seeing Dr. Gallo for about two months I noticed great relief. I had tried chiropractic before and am a firm believer in it but my pain wasn't going away as quickly as Dr Gallo was able to!
