About Best Life Chiropractic

Hi, I’m Dr. Gerald Palmes

My vision is to help people live a life where there are only possibilities instead of limitations. To help people in the community be the best version of themselves by making sure their nervous system and body’s are functioning at it’s highest level possible. My vision is to empower people in the community to be proactive in their health by doing community outreach, hosting events in my office, and being a resource for the community.

My mission is to improve people’s quality of life and empower people to live healthier, more vibrant lives through chiropractic care… by removing nerve interference and optimizing life potential. What that means is being the best version of yourself. Imagine if you always had headaches or back pain, how difficult is it to go about your day. Now imagine what your life would look like if you didn’t have to deal with those same chronic health challenges?

That is what I do, I help people who suffer from chronic pain conditions that traditional methods (drugs, massage, exercise, PT, etc..) has not been able to address.

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 with 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 they can get back to doing the things that they once took for granted.

If you want to get back to exercise, sleep better, be more productive, sit through a movie with less pain, be less grumpy, or just be happier… you are in the right place!!!
