Dr. Gail Galligan

Reviews By Our Satisfied Patients

I rode Treader yesterday for the first time in several weeks. He had an incredible swing to his walk that I have never felt. After a few moments of the same fight we usually have about trotting, he started to trot, and then I had no issues with him there after. Normally he is very resistant and it takes 10-20 min to get him to trot on the first queue.
I am so thankful that you were able to come out, I really feel like he is back on the right track.

Thank you!

I have a 17-year cat that recently started losing a lot of weight.  I took her to the vet and they found a loose tooth causing her to not want to eat.  They put her under to remove the tooth and to clean her teeth.  After the first week I figured she would start eating normally but she didn’t.   I started thinking it was because she was getting old.  I decided to take her in for an adjustment. I told Dr. Gail what has recently been going on with her so she started working on her neck and jaw.  She noticed how out of alignment it was.  The next day that I noticed my cat having a ferrous appetite and she also started talking (meowing) to me again especially when it’s feeding time.  Again, I thought she stopped due to being old.  Never would I have guessed that dentistry work would have caused these issues.  I am incredibly thankful for what Dr Gail did for my cat.

My little black and white schnoodle puppy showed up with an injury one day that we just couldn’t figure out. She whined if you picked her up but she would climb in your lap ok. I did notice her ears were being held down which is a clear indication she isn’t happy or she’s trying to be aerodynamic. She went to her vet and they x-rayed her and could see no breaks so they sent her home with medications and the recommendation that we might need an MRI. Bunny took her meds for a month but wasn’t all the way better so back to the vet we went. Since the vet knew the cost of an MRI would be prohibitive and would be risky for her because of her size she conferred with one of her associates and recommended Dr Gail Galligan a chiropractor. I was all for it. A safer and gentler method that wasn’t all drugs and tests. After the first visit Bunny had improved but she needed more work. In the process of being seen Bunny injured herself in a way that appeared severe. She was turning to the right and trying to flip over and over and over. We rushed her to an emergency vet to be told she had fractured her skull and had a brain injury. We were at a loss. There was no way she could have hit her head that hard without us knowing. They kept her overnight and saw no improvement. We were told she could improve some depending on the damage to her brain but that if we could not get her to eat or drink once we brought her home that we may need to put her down. I was distraught until she seemed to improve immediately at home. She was still leaning to the right but she would only try to flip over if you tried to hold her a certain way. We kept her on the medication until her next appointment with DR Gail but that morning she had bloody stool so we didn’t give her anymore medications. Dr Gail adjusted her really well and Bunny thinks she’s speed racer and can chase the cat all over the house again. I could not be happier with the care and attention Dr Gail has provided my Bunny and would recommend anyone whose puppy seems grumbly or out of sorts let her take a look at them. My older boy, Hammie, whose the sweetest thing, started to get grumbly at the girls and he’s right as rain again after just a few adjustments.

I cannot sing enough praises for Galligan Chiropractic!My sweet little goat somehow lost the use of first one front leg and eventually the other front leg. My vet took x-rays but nothing seem broken or out of place. Poor little Ivy goat got worse overnight and I took her to NC State Veterinary Hospital to have her checked out. All her blood work came back normal, the doctors there check out her x-rays and all looked good with them. They figured it was probably some kind of trauma but nothing was showing up on the x-rays and they were stumped.When I got home from my trip to Raleigh, I was horribly upset, my poor little Ivy, who was only 7 month old, could not get to a standing position by herself and when she tried to lay down, she would cry out in pain and fall on her face.My daughter suggested that I take her to Gail Galligan Chiropractic in Wilmington, she had taken her dog to Gail before and had wonderful results with his treatments there.Out of desperation I called and got an appointment. After Ivy’s first treatment, she was walking, she could lay down and get back up without crying in pain. After her second treatment, she was jumping and dancing around like a little goat should.It has been about a month since her first treatment and Ivy is full of life, jumping and twisting, butting and running.I can not thank Dr. Gail enough, both Ivy and I are forever grateful we found her!

Dr Gail has been my chiropractor for 3 years. She is kind and caring and takes time to educate her patients on maintaining wellness. Highly recommend if you have any chronic areas that get out of alignment. She is also the only chiropractor who adjusts animals in this area. So bring Fido in. She also adjusts horses.

My black Labrador of 11.5 years is already showing improvement and is happier, after just one treatment. 🙂

As a fellow chiropractor, I value Dr.Gail and Quimby tremendously! I travel 45 minutes every week to bring my fur baby to her for optimal healing from a certified chiropractic vet! Thank you for helping my puppy child achieve overall health and wellness!

Pat had been having difficulty sleeping and found herself waking up at the same time every night. After scanning her body here at Galligan Chiropractic, she was able to identify the weak area and correct that area using Standard Process Whole Food Supplements. Listen to an audio recording of  Pat’s testimony above.

PupPup, my 11-year-old Chihuahua has Cushing’s Syndrome, characterized by coughing, panting, frequent drinking water and urination, loss of muscle tone in legs (quit climbing stairs or jumping in chair), and often acting agitated.  My vet said there’s medicine for it, but not always very effective.  I tried Zyrtec for awhile, and because it would make her sleepy it would decrease the coughing, panting, and agitation.I decided to take her to Dr. Gail Galligan to try chiropractic.  In addition to treatment, she gave me nutritional support with whole food supplements for my dog. Within a few days after the first visit, she showed improvement in many of her symptoms, and kept improving over the next month or more.  Even the ‘accidents’ in the house stopped! The second visit showed more improvement; she only occasionally has coughing spells or panting, and no more agitation; she often runs back up the stairs, and wants to play tug of war again! She looks more alert and definitely has a new lease on life! Now, whenever she starts coughing more frequently, we do a revisit to Dr. Galligan, usually every 6-8 weeks.  Definitely less costly than medicine, and with remarkable results!

I brought my six month old son to see Dr. Gail because he was suddenly refusing to nurse on the left or lay on his right side. He would fuss and arch away and fight me every time I would try to nurse him on the left side. He had never done that before. She checked him and found some issues in his neck, so she adjusted him (while he tried to play with her during the whole thing). He was happy and smiling immediately afterwards. Ten minutes later, I tried nursing him on that left side. Right away, he snuggled in and began nursing like he had before, with no problems or resistance at all. He then slept all the way home (we live about an hour away) and is now as happy and playful as can be. Both of my children have been adjusted since not long after birth, but today proved even more that chiropractic is for everyone – even babies!

When my 31/2 year old dachsund, Hershey, was first injured he was completely down in back, unable to walk or stand. I brought him into see Dr. Gail Galligan for some chiropractic care. She adjusted him, and we came back in a week, she adjusted him… then he was able to walk by himself. Hershey had been too injured to go up or down the stairs in the house now he goes up and down the stairs all by himself, comes in and out of the house by himself and totally keeps up with his brother.!!!! He also has figured out that a good way to stretch his back is to go down on his tummy with his back legs out back, and front legs stretched out in front of him. One of the best things? Hershey is back to one favorite activities… chasing squirrels. I highly recommend Dr. Galligan for any problems you might have with your pets’ back or walking issues.

After a career in the Army, my shoulders, back and knees were pretty beat up. I was constantly suffering arthritis pains and muscle strains in my shoulders and neck, upper and lower back and knees. As a result I had a lost a good deal of range of motion in these areas. I came to Dr. Galligan on the recommendation of my physical therapist. Within weeks of beginning treatment, I began to feel significant improvement in my overall flexibility and a decrease in the general joint aches and pains, and the improvement continues. Beforehand I could barely walk for 15 minutes of exercise three times a week due to knee and back pain. Now I can walk twice that long five to seven times a week. Thanks Dr. Gail!

Prior to being a patient was having some neck pain. Good thing I came in to see Dr. Galligan my neck pain is zero, and I have much healthier looking skin. After regular chiropractic care I now feel much better and have a higher energy level. Over all I’m glad I made the decision to seek chiropractic care from Dr. Gail.
