Welcome to The Back and Neck Pain Center of Monterey

This article is here to help you gain a basic understanding of how our Monterey chiropractors can help you and your family.


Chiropractor Monterey CA

It can be hard to find a great chiropractor in Monterey. Finding someone that puts you at ease and listens to your problems is very important. At The Back and Neck Pain Center, conveniently located in Monterey, we want you to feel comfortable with us while at the same time delivering the results you desire.  We pride ourselves on offering that good “old fashion” customer service while helping our patients become pain free.  Our trained staff will help you with answering your insurance or Medicare questions and will handle all necessary billing so that you can get the care that you need.

Our goal with each new patient regardless as to whether they are a top level athlete or just the “average joe” is to first and foremost determine if they have a condition that we can help with.  This may seem obvious but it is extremely important.  We don’t want to waste anyone’s time or hard earned money.  If you have a condition we don’t feel we can help, we will likely be the first to tell you.

Here at the Back and Neck Pain Center of Monterey we also focus and pride ourselves on the following:

  • We are convenient and efficient.  We strive to always run on time.  Who wants to sit in a doctor’s office for hours.  Our time is valuable, but so IS YOURS.  We mean that.
  • We are affordable.  Insurance can be a helpful aid.  We are network provider for most companies.  Please check with our staff for details about what your plan covers or not.  If you do not have insurance or insurance that has chiropractic covered in it’s policy, it’s ok.  You are not alone.  Approximately 40% of our patient base simply pay a fee for service.  We keep it really simple.  No long term treatment plans or contracts.  We want to help you get out of pain as quickly as possible and that’s it.
  • We accept “Walk Ins” and “Visitors”.  We make every effort to make ourselves available to those in desperate need.  Come on in and we’ll do everything we can to get you seen by a doctor as soon as possible.
Chiropractic Explained

Chiropractic care is the practice of using spinal alignment to alleviate a wide variety of physical ailments, including muscle strain, neck pain, chronic back pain, and more. This is accomplished by adjusting the position of the spinal column to its proper shape, providing a non-invasive solution for pain relief.


How Can Chiropractic Care Help You?

Many people dismiss chiropractic as being something only for back pain, but chiropractic treatment can be used to treat a wide variety of physical issues, such as migraines and headaches, chronic pain, carpal tunnel, pain due to injury or muscle strain, and much more.


The History of Chiropractic Care

The word “Chiropractic” is derived from the Greek words “cheir” (hand) and “praktos” (done) combined to mean “done by hand.” It was chosen by the developer of chiropractic care, Daniel David Palmer. In 1895, D.D. Palmer performed a chiropractic adjustment on a partially deaf janitor, Harvey Lillard, who later reported that his hearing had improved due to the change.

D.D. Palmer opened the first chiropractic school two years later, and in the century since, chiropractic professionals have used spinal adjustments to help people prevent and cope with back pain, carpal tunnel, muscle strain, headaches and migraines, and a variety of other physical ailments. Millions of people benefit from the work of Dr. Palmer today.


What Kind of Training Does a Chiropractor Have?

Chiropractic doctors go through a minimum of four years of schooling at a chiropractic college, generally preceded by an undergraduate degree in the basic sciences or several years of experience in a prior relevant health care field.

Students of chiropractic care must spend a minimum of at least 4,200 hours with their teacher, and a minimum of 1,000 hours of fully supervised clinical training with an instructor as they learn the appropriate diagnosis and treatment techniques to help heal your body and restore it to its natural, fully functioning state.

At The Back and Neck Pain Center of Monterey our chiropractic team is ready to meet with you to discuss your needs. We will help to design a program that is right for you. We look forward to meeting you.

WHAT OUR PATIENTS SAY

“Dr. Gaily is the Best Chiropractor I’ve ever experienced. Amazed that he adjusted my neck without ‘cracking’ it…he used a subtle push of his hand instead – no more will I fear the neck adjustment. No more will I go to other Chiropractors, either :)”

- D. O'Brien

“Dr. Gaily has treated me for over 5 yrs now. He’s my hero. I was about to have a serious surgery on my neck, but due to Dr. Gaily’s persistent and professional healing methods, I have been able to live pain free and without the need for surgery. Thanks Dr. Gaily.”

- J. Ewing
