Excellent. Dr. Ortega’s abilities are second to none. Whether you’re looking for maintenance or repair, you’ll be a better version of yourself. Nearing 10 years of coming here and love that I have him as a resource for injuries, and general well-being. Make the adjustment to Ortega.

I’ve been seeing Dr. Ortega for help with my lower back pain and shoulder pain, and I am extremely satisfied with the results. Dr. Ortega’s expertise and personalized approach to chiropractic care helped with my recovery. Dr. Ortega is one kind soul who treats you as a whole person and not just another patient. I highly recommend Dr. Ortega to anyone seeking relief from any body pain. I can now lift weights and go on my runs without worrying about my lower back.

Dr. Ortega is the best chiropractic doctor! The care here is very effective and considerate. I’ve been receiving treatments for over a year now and have felt great. Any time a pain arises I feel so much better after and everyone is so nice. A wonderful clinic!

I have been going to Dr. Ortega for about two years. He is very thorough and focuses both on adjusting you and deep tissue work. He really gets to know you and tailor his care specifically to you. He has helped my lower back tremendously. I highly recommended him.

Dr. Joe helped me many years ago after a rough car accident, and now I’m back to visiting him for regular maintenance. He and his staff are the best in the business! They’re friendly and kind after a long day. You can trust Dr. Ortega to take the time to get to know you and your concerns, and help you on your health journey. Go see Dr. Joe!

This is by far the best chiropractic office I have ever been to. Dr. Ortega is really a super chiropractor, he gets to know you and your back issues. He does everything he can to make sure he address your issue and helps resolve your back problems, he has definitely improved my way of life and the way my body feels. Also, his front desk lady is genuinely one of the most welcoming and attentive people I have ever met, she really compliments his office and practice. If you are in San Diego and in need of a great chiropractor, look no further, Dr Ortega is your solution!

Dr. Ortega is amazing and so is his staff! My work hours can be very demanding and his team has been very accommodating and understanding with scheduling. Besides that, Dr. Ortega is very professional and knowledgeable. At my initial consult, he took the time to really understand what was bothering me and explain the physiology of why chiropractic care works. He also gave me some at home tasks and aids to improve my significant elbow tendinitis. Now, my elbow hardly bothers me anymore (as well as my neck and back). I tried other chiro's in the area before him and was not impressed by them; California Chiropractic Care is the best by far!!

Dr. Ortega is great, been going for about a year now. I like how he preps you before getting the adjust. First they put you on a water bed massager to loosen the muscles, and when seeing Dr. Ortega, he would massage/stretch to loosen the places where they are hurting before doing the adjustment. That for me, gives me a deeper release and a better feeling compared to other chiropractors I have seen in the past. Office staff is great. Friendly and Clean. Will be continuing to go back weekly.

Dr. Ortega improved my quality of life by x1000. I struggle with neck/back pain and before seeing Dr. Ortega I was having to take muscle relaxers and ibuprofen regularly. I am now able to relax at night without pain being top of mind. He is very professional, easy to talk to, and takes the time to listen & explain. His office staff is wonderful as well. 10/10 recommend, he will get the job done.
