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 Palmer Palooza prospective student event, as well as 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 full body certified in 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, Class 143, which is awarded to the member of the graduating class for demonstrating excellence during their clinical intern experience with patient evaluation and diagnosis; chiropractic technique and rehabilitative procedures; diagnostic imaging and clinical laboratory data interpretation; case management and professionalism.
Dr. Pulmano has been an active member of the San Francisco Softball League since 2011. He was a former member of Sundown Crossfit in Santa Clara, CA for three years until he moved to San Francisco and is now an active member of OrangeTheory Fitness at the Financial District, where he has partnered with the gym studio and provides ongoing care for their trainers, staff and members.
