Body aches and pains affect so many aspects of everyday life; you absolutely can not live well without pain relief. Whether you know exactly what is wrong or you just have a list of symptoms, chiropractic treatment can improve your life through an array of possibilities. Dr. Edward McNamara is committed to helping all of his patients obtain a pain-free and healthy lifestyle through effective, personalized chiropractic treatments at a price point everyone can afford.

Dr. McNamara doesn’t subscribe to the high pressure, high cost Chiropractic plans many Bay area doctors employ because he is focused on one thing; and that is simply what’s best for his patients! “I’m not tied into any specific insurance plan and I keep my overhead low so that I can pass the savings onto my patients and provide them only the care they need. That’s all I care about and the fact that I can still make a living doing right by everyone is the reward,” says Dr. McNamara, who happens to be one of the most down to earth guys you’ll ever meet.

I know I’m not supposed to play favorites, but our interview for this story was easily one of my favorites in recent history. Dr. McNamara has some great stories and sitting down with wonderful local business owners like “Dr. Mac,” as many of his patients call him, is why I love this magazine so much.

I asked Dr. Mac how he was introduced to the Chiropractic profession and he proceeded to tell me about his good ol’ days as a rugby player! He’s a pretty big guy so I wouldn’t have liked receiving a hit by him during his rugby playing days, but it was actually a hit Dr. Mac sustained while on the field that introduced him to the wonders of Chiropractic care. “I got absolutely crushed!” admits Dr. Mac, “I was seeing stars, my neck and back hurt, and I could barely move until a teammate came up and adjusted me right there. I walked off the field wondering what the heck just happened… and I’m not talking about the hit I just took, I’m talking about the adjustment I just received. So after the game I asked him about it and it really peaked my interest and that moment basically changed the course of my life!”

Dr. Mac continued to play Rugby, at the highest level the United States offered I might add, while going to school for Chiropractic at Life University in Georgia. Once he graduated he began practicing, and that was almost 20 years ago. Dr. Mac still has the same love and passion for what he does today as he did back then.

I personally became a patient of Dr. Mac quite recently, so I can personally attest to his professional and quality care. After many years of beating up my body playing sports and sustaining several injuries, I decided I needed a little help and pain relief myself. Within seconds of my first adjustment with Dr. McNamara the neck pain and stiffness I’ve been experiencing for months subsided. I have to admit that I feel a little foolish for not coming to see him sooner, I guess I had gotten used to living with pain, but I am here to tell you that nobody should live like that, especially when Dr. Mac can provide you with affordable options to manage and treat your pain. He asked me what was going on, did a quick evaluation and knew exactly what I needed to feel better. Of course Chiropractic treatments are not a “one size fits all” type of care, but at McNamara Health and Wellness Center, Dr. Mac is ready to carefully evaluate your condition and come up with a completely customized solution to fit you and your budget, and that’s what I know you’ll truly appreciate about him.

“I work with everyone; from athletes to addicts, to people in their late 90s! Modern medicine is so quick to prescribe highly addictive opioids to people with pain instead of treating them with techniques that can fix the problem instead of masking it. I empathize with people who have become addicted to these drugs, and I promise that I will do everything in my power to help relieve their pain, and ultimately help them overcome their addiction and dependency on these deadly pain pills.”


Dr. McNamara takes pride in what he does and is there when you need him. Early mornings, evenings even weekends! Dr. Mac is happy and willing to work around your schedule! He knows how difficult it can be for the working adult or parent to get a few minutes for themselves, because he’s both of those things. Dr. McNamara is a proud father of an infant son who means the world to him, so he knows how easy it is to get caught up in the routine and forget about making time for yourself and your health. But do yourself a favor and stop by to see him, you’ll be very happy you did! Whether you need corrective chiropractic care, suffered an auto injury, sports injury or just haven’t made time for yourself and your wellness lately, Doctor Mac has got your back!
