Kearny Mesa Chiropractic Care Brings Holistic Health to All Phases of Life

Our Kearny Mesa chiropractors are passionate about helping people achieve optimum health and rehabilitation from injuries through highly-skilled chiropractic care. Our team is especially experienced in treating sports injury, car accident injury, personal injury and workers compensation patients. Through careful, thorough examination and diagnosis of each injury, we take the time to understand what our patients need to help them feel better and get back to full, pain-free activity naturally and effectively. We design treatment plans that include gentle, precise spinal adjustments to free pinched nerves, and a number of physiotherapy modalities, such as massage therapy, that help the body heal from the inside out. In addition to providing the care and rehabilitation they need, we also make life easier for our patients by helping with the paperwork they need to bring closure to their cases.
Back Pain in Kearny Mesa, Linda Vista, Poway, and ScrippsAs chiropractors, we strive to discover the root cause of each patient's pain, whether it is chronic or pregnancy-related back pain, headaches and migraines, neck pain from whiplash, sciatica, or any other ailment. And then instead of just masking the symptoms with medication, our goal is to treat and remove the cause of the pain so that it does not return.
This natural, non-invasive approach to healthcare is great for everyone in the family: from pregnant mothers and infants to teenage athletes and weekend warriors, and seasoned citizens who want to stay active well into their golden years. Through our skilled combination of spinal adjustments and corrective exercises and stretches, we help people recover and get strong to avoid future injury. Through modalities such as massage therapy, nutritional counseling and lifestyle counseling to help people accomplish daily tasks more ergonomically to avoid injury, we help everybody in the family feel rejuvenated, healthy and strong.

Reviews By Our Satisfied Patients

  • "My back went out suddenly - for no reason. Went to 2 Dr.'s, had an X-ray - they found nothing wrong and had no recommendations. THEN a friend told me about Dr. Salanger - in 15 minutes the pain was gone and has not returned 2 weeks later. He gave me a couple exercises to do to strengthen the area. That's it - simple as that when you know what you're doing! THANK YOU Dr. Salanger!"

  • An Apple a Day . . .

    What is so good about an apple? Is it the color, ranging from ruby red to pale pink? Is it the crunch? The sweetness? Or is it, instead, a combination of all of these qualities, plus the natural goodness derived from the apple's secret ingredients — phytonutrients? If this were a multiple choice quiz, the answer would be "all of the above". Importantly, in addition to possessing numerous appealing physical qualities, apples contain an abundance of health-promoting biochemicals known as phytonutrients.1,2 These specific organic molecules are derived not only from apples but many other fresh fruits and vegetables, and help power the immune system, protect against cancer, maintain healthy eyes, and assist cells in clearing out metabolic waste products such as free radicals. ...
