Dr. Christopher DeMartini
Dr. Christopher DeMartini is a Bay Area native, born in San Francisco and a graduate of St. Ignatius College Preparatory. Dr. DeMartini’s experience with chiropractic care began in his teens and was a pivotal part of maximizing his performance and facilitated his healing from injuries which allowed him to become the California State Champion in the shot put and a Junior National Champion in weightlifting. Upon graduating high school he declined many athletic scholarships in order to accept a residency at the Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs, Colorado. While in Colorado Springs he completed his undergraduate education at Pikes Peak Community College. A severe injury ended his athletic career, but his remarkable recovery, thanks to the aid of Dr. Sergio Azzolino, started him on a new path of becoming a Chiropractic Neurologist.Learn More

WHAT OUR PATIENTS ARE SAYING
Photo taken just as I was leaving California Neurohealth today. If you are looking for chiropractic, massage, acupuncture, herbs, and a warm friendly environment, check them out. The clinic is run by a husband and wife couple... he does the Chiro and she does the TCM. Dr Christopher DeMartini and Elham Khodabandeloo. I find them knowledgable, friendly, and genuinely interested in helping their patients, yet accepting people as they are (not overly pushing or pressuring). They also have a branch in San Luis Obispo (weekdays). And Fri-Sun in Redwood City.

I first went to see Dr DeMartini for chronic upper back pain. Ihad been to many chiropractors over the years, but was immediately impressed with the time he took to understand my history, the location of the pain and how it affected other areas before doing any adjustments or manipulations. He also worked on my balance to musculoskeletal health gave me exercises to improve both strength and mobility. also went to Elham for acupuncture as I had never tried it and was eager for anything that could improve my back health. She was also very thorough going through my diet and specific injury history before treating me and making recommendations. The next morning I woke up feeling better than had in weeks. After a follow-up appointment with both health practitioners today, I am excited to be on the road to getting back to doing the sports I love. Thank you Dr. Chris and Elham!

What a find! I’ve been going to acupuncture for over 20 years and I haven’t had such a thorough and precise treatment in who knows how long! Elham is a gem! She has great bed side manner, she is thorough and was able to pin point my issues just by feeling/checking my pulse! After one treatment a pinched nerve I was dealing with was quickly released and after my second treatment I felt relaxed and ready for more healing. I’ll be going back regularly. I highly recommend her!
