Yours in Health
Dr. David Giacalone

So Kind and Informative

From start to finish, my experience with this practice is impeccable! The front desk staff was very nice and the doctor impressed me so much! My 11-year-old son came with me for an appointment and is VERY interested in chiropractic work – Doctor Giacalone was so kind and informative! He did not rush us, made sure we understood, and if we had any questions he made sure to answer and his kindness was superior! So happy to have finally made my way here.

Helped Me Tremendously

I have been a patient of Dr. Giacalone’s for approximately 5 years. He has always been there for me; many times at a moments notice. I strive to live an active, clean lifestyle and Dr. Giacalone has helped me tremendously with that.

-Maureen H.

A Better Understanding

Dr. Giacalone’s approach is very different. He listens to your concerns and gains a thorough understanding of your needs before he treats your condition. You are adjusted in an exam room and your experience is completely unique to your needs. I appreciate knowing I am treated for what I came in for, not just being adjusted for adjustment and flexibility purposes.

-Jodi D.

Highly Impressed

I was highly impressed with Dr. Giacalone expertise in reading and sharing x-ray results with me as well as caution in requesting further tests prior to treating my neck. He spent a great deal of time with me on my first visit performing tests overlooked by medical doctors. My husband was impressed by Dr. Giacalone integrity during our free consultation. We both find Dr. Giacalone to be refreshingly straightforward and honest. He will not keep you coming if he cannot help you. I have seen several chiropractors over the years. After my first visit here, I feel that Dr. Giacalone philosophy, knowledge and skillful hands that perform adjustments rank him with my top chiropractor who retired. I am most grateful that my naturopathic physician referred me to him.

I’m Happy I Was Encouraged To Come In

I was extremely nervous about experiencing chiropractic treatment. Dr. Giacalone was knowledgeable and reassuring. I found his staff to be efficient and friendly. I’m happy my family member, whom is also a patient, encouraged me to go!

-Sharon Q.


Everything has been wonderful! I love it at your place! After having headaches for three months, I was surprised to have no headaches after the second visit. Dr. Giacalone has addressed underlying issues and aches that I thought were irrelevant to the main issue but that all seem to be tied together. I feel confident that this will be a wonderful, long-lasting relationship!

-Tiffany C.

I am happy

I am happy to give you my business. I had an outstanding experience during my first visit and look forward to being treated there in the future. The small scale location and knowledgeable staff made my appointment simple, helpful, and stress-free. Thank you!

Highly recommend Dr. Giacalone to anyone who suffers with frozen shoulder

In July 2012, I began to notice that my shoulder was tightening up unexpectedly and causing my arm to have limited range of motion. One month later I went to an Orthopedic Surgeon since it was not getting better. The prognosis was that I had frozen shoulder. I was told to go to physical therapy but I made the choice not to do that. I was told if I did nothing it would eventually go away, but it could take up to two years. Several months went by and my shoulder was considerably limited of course affecting the use of my arm.

I chose to begin chiropractic treatment with Dr. Giacalone and after the first couple of visits I felt an improvement which encouraged me. I have now been receiving treatment for two months and I would say that I have 80% of my mobility back, each visit getting better and better. I am now able to do more and more of the things that I could do before this condition appeared.

Dr. Giacalone has been patient, gentle, and diligent in his desire to restore the use of my shoulder. His effective use of adjusting my shoulder and the use of Active Release Technique has been valuable to the success of my recovery. The pain level of this technique has been very tolerable.

I would highly recommend Dr. Giacalone to anyone who suffers with frozen shoulder.

I am thankful to the Lord for answering my prayer and providing such wonderful care through Dr. Giacalone.

Dr. Giacalone has helped me stay strong and healthy…

“I have been a patient of Dr. Giacalone’s for approximately 5 years. He has always been there for me; many times at a moments notice. I face many challenges in raising a special needs son and some of those challenges are physical. Dr. Giacalone has helped me stay strong and healthy so I can be there for him. I strive to live an active, clean lifestyle and Dr. Giacalone has helped me tremendously with that.”

-Maureen H.

I had relief after just a few sessions…

“I came to Dr. Giacalone with the early stages of frozen shoulder. Because I’ve had this before, I knew what was ahead of me…a lot of pain, loss of sleep, limitations in physical activity. This time, I was determined to nip it in the bud! I was referred to Dr. Giacalone by another physician, who said that Active Release Technique (ART) might be helpful. It was! Dr. Giacalone worked compassionately, but with great determination to help release the shoulder. He gave me helpful tips for recovery and for keeping my shoulders strong and healthy. I had relief after just a few sessions, and after 2 months, my shoulder was almost completely better. For me, this was nothing short of a miracle, and I am grateful to Dr. Giacalone and his staff for their professionalism and friendliness and skill! I hope I won’t have to come back, but I sure won’t hesitate if another problem crops up!

-Jennifer W.

I was a chiropractic skeptic…

“Long story short… in 2004, I injured my back immobilizing me for several days until I went to my physician getting pain medication and muscle-relaxors. Several years past but I continued to experience debilitating back pain 5-10 times a year with each episode lasting around 3 days. I sometimes did nothing but mostly returned to my physician for help, both worked only until the next flare-up. At the time, I was a chiropractic skeptic but my mother gave me Dr. Giacalone’s number; she said “he is the best.” I finally called David in 2008 and I am no longer on pain medications or muscle-relaxors…in fact; since I have been on maintenance adjustments I have not experienced any debilitating back pain. A miracle? NO! Chiropractic at its best? YES!

-Marc K.

I swam today and it was effortless…

Dave, Foot feels much better after yesterday’s ART….thanks for that. I swam today and wanted to tell you it was effortless; night and day compared to my swim yesterday morning…could not believe how bound up my shoulders were… and how loose they were after treatment…much faster too! Thanks again…see you in a week or so.

-Bill S., 2009 2nd Place National Age-Group Champion – Triathlon

A Success Story…

It had been two and a half years with inconsistent and often annoying Iliotibial Band Syndrome. Physical therapy, massage, hundreds of dollars in running shoes, and the discomfort in my leg was not gone. What was I to do? One mid-summer I read an article in Runner’s World that changed my “running life” forever. I decided to take the advice of elite runners, and yet again, tried something new. That something is ART, Active Release Techniques. I have run more now than I ever have before. Two sessions was all I needed to whisk away any pain, about eight in all before I was able to graduate from my weekly ART sessions. Thank you, Dr. Giacalone, for your expertise and care!

-Andi J., High School Cross Country Coach

A unique find in a doctor and a very special person…

Dr. Giacalone, Thank you for your care and concern during a time more difficult than words can express. You are a unique find in a doctor and a very special person.

With sincere respect and appreciation,

-Catherine S.

Ten years and going strong!

I was already a weekly wellness patient of Chiropractic Center of Vernon when Dave took over the practice in 2003. As usual when meeting a new doctor, especially a “hands on” one, a patient feels a bit nervous. I had a lot of chronic problems: joint and nerve damage from Lyme disease, several bulging disks, and an “aging jock” body. But I appreciated Dave right off the bat as a total listener, and a precise and skillful practitioner. I also liked his great sense of humor and the fact that he didn’t push a thousand “must have” products, such as supplements, on his patients.

I still get weekly adjustments, without which I’d be a pain-ridden cripple. With them, I can continue to work out and resist illness. But sometimes I forget the “aging” part of “aging jock” or dance at a wedding as if I were still 22. Dave devotes his time and attention to diagnose my problem, adjust me with care, suggest home measures, and track my progress until I’m well enough to play and dance sensibly again. Thanks, Dave, and a huge thanks to Erin for all you do!
