I stand for a world where health allows for the enjoyment of life and leads to optimal life potential.

Hi, I'm Dr. Gerald

My mission is to improve lives and empower people to live healthier, more vibrant lives through chiropractic care, by removing nerve interference and optimizing life potential.

I was born and raised here in San Diego.

I grew up knowing that I wanted to become a health provider, just unsure what that would be.

It wasn’t until halfway through college did I hear about or even know what a chiropractor was. I worked in a chiropractic office my last years while at UC Irvine.

I saw first-hand many miracle stories and learned this was very common in a chiropractic office. People who suffered from years of headaches, back pain, etc.., no longer have these issues after going to the chiropractor.

Learning how chiropractic is about allowing the human body, a self healing organism, to function optimally was something that I believe is a universal truth.

I knew I wanted to become a chiropractor and I knew I wanted to help people in my community and city.

To help people, who like me, were unaware of how chiropractic can change someone’s life for the better.

After graduating chiropractic college and working in an office in the SF bay area, I moved back to my hometown with the goal to help people live a life where there are only possibilities and to help them be the best version of themselves.

What My Wonderful Patients Say

  • ★★★★★ I have had neck pain and pinched muscles for years. I’ve seen physical therapists in the past and they couldn’t diagnose my pain. I went to see Dr. Palmes a couple years ago and after my first session, he knew exactly where my pain was and how to help it. Each time after his session, my pain is relieved and my body feels more mobile. I moved to SF and trying to find a chiropractor as knowledgeable and passionate about helping people live their best, pain free life! Thanks, Dr. Gerald Palmes! For anyone with body pain, he can help. Make an appointment !

  • ★★★★★ I went in to see Dr. Palmes concerned about migraine headaches I have been experiencing and he did an x-ray and evaluation on me to see if there is any relation with my posture and symptoms. It was a very easy, smooth visit with no pressure or uneasiness. He is beyond professional and very patient to explain details and answering my questions. Highly recommended! Thanks!
