A husband and wife team, Dr. Cheryl Borrego and Dr. Paul Trentalange have been practicing for more than 29 years after graduating from Los Angeles College of Chiropractic.

This hospital saw over 800 patients a day and Dr's. Borrego and Trentalange were two of only four chiropractic doctors on staff.
Dr. Borrego was the first and only woman chiropractor hired in the hospital's history.

Dr. Trentalange (Paul) is magic. My kids used to skateboard and got frequent injuries. Paul has fixed every part of them it seems. For my family, he has worked on elbows, legs, toes, ankles, necks, backs, shoulders, fingers, wrists and knees. We go to him for any muscular or skeletal issue. Magic is the word that always comes to mind as we walk in with injuries and walk out healed. I had a frozen shoulder a few years ago. I couldn't move my arm without a piercing and nauseating pain. It limited everything I did for fear of moving it and experiencing the agony. I even had difficulty dressing as my range of motion was so limited. Paul diagnosed and fixed it over a short course of treatment. I am completely healed. I know that pain relief and health are only a phone call away whenever my family or I need it. I can not make this recommendation strongly enough to convey how wonderful Paul is and how indispensable he is to my family.

As an athlete, I had lately been experiencing imbalance problems that were of detriment to my performance. Having been to several chiropractors before, with results little more than very temporary relief, I was skeptical to try another. I was referred to Dr. Trentalange by a friend who had recently undergone 3 leg surgeries and told me that his regular appointments had been a crucial and indispensable asset to his quick recovery. Upon beginning my session w/ Dr. Trentalange, I could tell that his practices were much different than any previous chiropractor I had experienced; after speaking to me about what sort of discomforts I had been experiencing, he did a full body evaluation to determine exactly what the roots of the problems were. He then proceeded to make all necessary adjustments to combat these problems, before reevaluating. If there was the slightest problem, he would continue to make adjustments and I was not released until my alignment and weight distribution were perfect symmetrical and there were no more signs of the slightest abnormalities. You can really tell that he has a genuine care for the well-being of his patients. It has been approximately 2 weeks since my appointment and I still feel great, as well as already experiencing noticeable increases in my athletic performance! I will most definitely be returning to Dr. Trentalange if I experience any future discomforts and would recommend him to anybody in need of a great chiropractor.

I want to say we came to Dr. Paul about 2 months ago when my 16m old son was not walking and had issues with his right foot and ankle. Two months later he in not only walking but learning to run. I believe the peds and ortho docs are good but Dr.Paul looked at it differently, but doing that I think his approach helped my son learn to walk. I can't speak highly enough about Dr. Paul and his practice. I would give it 11 stars. --

★★★★★ My name is Jose, had the opportunity to come in to see Dr. Paul for my sports related injury. He was a great chiropractor, very personable and easy to talk to. After a couple of sessions I was back to health and back to playing in no time. I would definitely recommend him.

Trusting, caring, flexible, intelligent, experienced, approachable and attentive are words I use to describe Dr. Paul. He has helped in the three basic pillars of wellness: moving well, eating well and thinking well. If you want to let your body move the way it was designed to without fear of injury, trust Dr. Paul. I always will.

Not only is he a great Chiropractor in the traditional sense...helping to bring relief from pain, but I love it that he helps me to learn to improve my posture. I've never had this experience with anyone else I've ever seen in the past. He teaches you to notice how your body is standing, walking, sitting and helps you to become aware of the proper way to move about. Excellent patient care. I recommend him to everyone I know who is looking for a great chiropractor. Usually there is no wait time

I've been treated by Dr. Paul Trentalange for about 5 years now and I can honestly say I feel like I am an extension of his family. He and the team are truly caring about the overall wellness of your body. Whenever I need to come in for a visit, he is very flexible with times and it's always a pleasure to visit with.

Dr. Paul has saved me countless times. I am a lacrosse player and wouldn't be able to perform at my best without the help of Dr. Paul

Dr. Paul Trentalange has worked with my son for the past 2 years. He has helped him with everything from low back pain to popped ribs. He is a extremely knowledgeable and very caring. Paul is excellent with young athletes and has worked with many of the young men on our boys lacrosse team. Thank you Paul for all that you do.

I've been seeing Dr. Paul Trentalange for a few years now. Of all the chiropractors in San Diego I've seen over the course of years, Dr. Paul is by far the gentlest but most effective when it comes to making back and neck adjustments. I can't recommend Dr. Paul enough if you have back or neck problems. For me, I wasn't able to rotate my head/neck without hearing my neck grinding. Now I'm in tip-top shape with the best posture I've ever had. Thanks Dr. Paul!

My Dr.Paul is the only chiropractor in San Diego who knows how to make my back feel better. I have a bulging lumbar disc and I have to seat for my work for over 8 hours a day. It took a lot of work but finally I am feeling better. I would probably have my disc herniated by now if I have not met Dr.Paul. He doesn't crack bones (which I prefer) but knows how to massage my pains away. He also uses cold lasers and many other interesting techniques to make my back better in the long run. I recommend Dr.Paul to all my relatives and friends for any chiropractic adjustments! He is truly the best Chiropractic doctor and a great conversationalist!
