Dr. Ray Pulmano
Dr. Raymond Pulmano graduated from San Jose State University with a Bachelor of Science in Chemistry. After graduation, his original plan was to attend dental or pharmacy school and began taking additional prerequisite courses for his applications. He had discovered chiropractic after he was involved in a motor vehicle accident and suffered neck and low back pain. After receiving one visit of chiropractic care at our very own SF Custom Chiropractic, he left the office feeling instantaneous relief. He changed his mind and pursued his Doctorate of Chiropractic at Palmer College of Chiropractic in San Jose, CA.
While attending Palmer College of Chiropractic, he tutored several classes on campus, including Biochemistry, Microbiology and Nutrition & Dietetics. He was also a lab instructor assistant for courses including Clinical Evaluation and Principles of Chiropractic. He was heavily involved in Sports Council, providing care as an outpatient clinical intern at events such as the Sea Otter Classic in Monterey, CA and the San Jose State University rugby games. After completing his outpatient clinical phase early, he completed a six month internship with SF Custom Chiropractic at the Financial District location. Following the completion of his internship, he was offered a full time position as an associate chiropractor to begin at the start of January 2018.
Dr. Pulmano is a full body certified, elite provider for Active Release Techniques and certified in Functional Movement Techniques, levels 1 and 2. He received the Clinical Excellence Award at the December 2017 Commencement for Palmer College of Chiropractic and now teaches as part-time faculty for courses in Clinical Diagnosis and Clinical Evaluation.
Dr. Pulmano manages his softball team for the San Francisco Gay Softball League, is a philanthropic cheerleader for Cheer San Francisco and currently serves on the Executive Board of San Francisco’s Gay Asian Pacific Alliance as the organization’s Treasurer and Outreach Director.
