Dr. Gail Galligan


Reviews By Our Satisfied Patients

Dr. Galligan has been an awesome Chiropractor to work with. I took my two beagle puppies Mindy and Daisy there for adjustments and noticed great changes in their health. Dr. Gail is compassionate and really cares about patients! Highly recommend her services! 

Liles Family

Dr. Galligan was truly present during our consult and treatment. I felt she listened and heard me fully. She took her time explaining things to me and had a pleasant demeanor. Quimby was also very sweet and pleasant. Looking forward to getting better under her care.

Dr. Galligan is kind and compassionate and really knows her stuff. I have seen many different chiropractors, in many different states, and I’m really grateful that I found her here in Wilmington.

First visit.. walked in with a dog acting years older than actual age. The doc has totally magic hands. Same dog left acting like a puppy. Absolutely stunning!!! She’s saving so many lives. ~ Anonymous


You will feel 10 Pounds lighter when you leave the office…

…than when you arrived.  The effect is that powerful.  I feel as if I have dropped carrying burdens that have weighed me down. I have been seeing Dr. Galligan for a few months now and have been utilizing her practice for Neuro Emotional Technique  or (NET).  It’s based on the concept that unresolved emotional trauma is stored in the body. ... NET practitioners can find unresolved, negatively charged emotional responses that are stored in your body and help you release them. See link.

In my case, I just had the best 5 day visit with my mother and sister that I ever had.  Dr. Galligan did some N.E.T. sessions which focused on the upcoming family visit and gave me a suit of armor to protect me. It provides a sense of freedom from worrying about the effect their visits can have on my level of stress.  Whenever I encounter negative energy, it now just rolls off.  My husband and friends have noticed a big difference in my level of anxiety.  Dr. Galligan is a certified practitioner for N.E.T. and her approach produces successful outcomes. Thanks Dr. Galligan! I am ever so grateful.


Met Dr. Gail two years ago when she adjusted my sweet Cane Corso Hank. He came in when he threw out his back and could barely move. Getting my 135 lb dog into my car was almost impossible. Hank immediately felt comfortable with her and allowed her to adjust him. She was gentle and never caused him any pain. After that first visit he happily jumped into the back of my car for the ride home. We have been loyal ever since. I've even become a loyal patient and brought my new mastiff Theo to the team after loosing Hank to lymphoma in April. She has relieve us of pain and renewed our physical quality of life. Thanks Dr Gail!

"Dear Dr Galligan. I already feel like my "old self". You found my weak spots and addressed my injury and I can take my walks with papa again. I am going to take your good suggestions and start swimming this weekend to strengthen my knee. My owner even bought me a fancy swim vest so I can go all around the pool. Thank you for being my new friend. I will be back to see you in two weeks. Ruby Faith ( a fluffy peekapoo). <3

"Just wanted to leave my testimony about Lucy :) When I rescued my sweet feist girl, Lucy, she had been severely mistreated and shortly after lost all her ability to walk. I took her to multiple vets and specialists and got no real answers, only prescriptions for steroids. Lucy went AN ENTIRE YEAR unable to even stand, let alone run and play. I did everything for her and despite my efforts she kept losing weight and muscle. I finally found out about Dr. Galligan last year and the improvement in Lucy is UNBELIEVABLE, she is a brand new dog. Lucy loves running and jumping and chasing her squeaker toys. We see Dr. Gail every month and a half and will continue to do so. It was such a blessing find someone who not only specializes in what we needed but cares about my sweet feist girl.

I first visited Dr. Gail a few years ago because my Doberman Jazzy was experiencing severe neck pain. Dr. Galligan was the only chiropractor I could find to work with my dog. Fast forward several years- Jazzy still visits Dr. Gail for preventative care. I have become a patient myself with fantastic results. We travel over an hour each way, passing a plethora of Chiropractic offices along the way. Dr. Gail is compassionate and thorough in her adjusting style. I would recommend her to everyone- be they two or four legged!

Lewis Family

Dr. Galligan is an extremely skilled and dedicated chiropractor. She has been doing a very
good job with my chronic lower back pain. I highly recommend her.

Hall Family

We had Dr. Gail come out to our farm to do some work on our horses. She arrived on time even after traveling over an hour to get here. She worked perfectly and took her time on every horse that needed done. She did about 7 horses and we all have nothing but good words to say about her. Prices were great, work was great, very very happy!! Will definitely be having her back out, phenomenal experience!! 

Gallinger Family

Helps adjust my neck plus always good advice on vitamins. Helped my Yorkie too!

Preston-McClure Family

Both Dr Gail and Quimby are professional, kind and caring. Dr Gail is exceptionally skilled. I shared that my vision was blurry and she was able to improve it thru an adjustment. The BEST!!!

Rittenmeyer Family

Very pleased with the treatment and adjustment of our ten year old dog. We are optimistic that additional adjustments will help him improve and extend his life with us. Dr. Gail also recommended a supplement to help with his high liver enzymes. I use supplements myself so I am grateful she shared this knowledge with us. Will definitely be returning.


My dogs and I love Dr. Gail! She is knowledgeable and patient with my younger dog who doesn’t love being adjusted. We drive from SC and it’s more than worth the trip! My dogs are involved in sports and one of my dogs had stopped catching his ball which is unlike him. I mentioned this to Dr. Gail and she did find the right side of his jaw out. After his adjustment, he hasn’t missed a ball since! She is very intuitive, and both me and my dogs always leave feeling better! I wouldn’t take my sport dogs anywhere else!

Olivia R.

Our family of 2 people and 5 rescue dogs drive almost 2 hours on a regular basis to see Dr. Gail and receive chiropractic adjustments. She is that good. She cares about her patients health and well-being. We value her chiropractic skills, knowledge, methods and advice. Dr. Gail is the best Chiropractor we’ve ever been to and we heartily recommend her to everyone. 

McCombs Family

Dr Gail is so caring and compassionate! She takes time to truly understand what the problem is and also explain and educate. She has helped our 10 year old boxer regain his mobility so he can still be my walking buddy :) Can’t say enough good things!!

Spinelli Family

I am thrilled with LuLa Mae's progress! This was our 4th visit for her back. She was in terrible pain. I have my happy dog back and that means the world to me! I highly recommend!

Emory Family

Dr. Gail is an amazingly talented chiropractor! With her help we have been able to help our 12 year old husky live his best life. Not only has she helped him, but she has propelled my own personal healing into high drive with her muscle testing response technique. If you are in need of some intuitive, helpful compassionate and exceptional whole wellness health care, call Galligan Chiropractic! 

Hough Family

I love this place. My dog is in sports and was having a hard time. He is feeling so much better now. The doctor and staff were super friendly and answered all my questions. If my boy ever needs adjusting I will bring him back.

Carabello Family

Dr Gail has been a life saver for my dog. After a back injury a few years ago she improved his gate and has kept him Mobil over the years. He's nearly 10 and is a Shiloh Shepherd, a very large breed.

Bundrick Family

Dr Gail is amazing. I have never been to a chiropractor who is so knowledgeable about the workings of both the human body but also with animals. I first met her when I brought my cat in. When my 10 month old puppy started having seizures I brought her to Gail to work on. During one of the visits I watched her work on a client (human) and I was amazed about her technique and how thorough she was. That day I made an appointment for myself and glad I did. She works wonders.

Burton Family

We have had Dr Gail take care of all of our boys since 2012. 4 dogs 3 of which did athletic sports. Always feeling better after the visit.

Dargay Family

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!

D'Amato Family

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.  

Gilmer Family

Trawler loves his adjustments & feels great afterwards! We drive 11/2 hours from SC to see Dr Gail!She has great calmness & energy with the dogs.

Burns Family

Dr. Gail is amazing! She helps my 14year old miniature poodle feel his best! No lie she works miracles. Highly recommend !


Coco is doing better!  He actually got up to greet me when I got home with a little dancing, tail wagging and now he’s licking me. He’s eating better and just overall moving quite a bit better. Will see you guys on Thursday…can’t wait for you to see him Happy.

P. Papoulias

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.

K. Smith

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

J. Chambers

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.

Leroy S.

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!

Jerry D.

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.
