When it comes to chiropractic work, people often wonder what exactly it can help with. We all have a general idea of what a chiropractor does, but we don’t always know how that can be applied to our individual situation. Here at Core Chiropractic + Wellness in Bakersfield, we are chiropractic professionals with years of experience helping people from all walks of life with effective pain management. In today’s blog at Core Chiropractic + Wellness in Bakersfield, we discuss some of the most common conditions that our services can help to treat — some of them may surprise you! 

 

If you are experiencing any of the below conditions or if it’s been a while since your last chiropractic visit, then contact us at Core Chiropractic + Wellness in Bakersfield today!

 

Lower Back Pain

For many people, chiropractic work can be just as effective at relieving most types of back pain as physical therapy. Depending on exactly where (and why) you are experiencing back pain, your chiropractor can perform spinal manipulation techniques combined with elements of massage therapy to help treat the back pain at the source. While spinal manipulation may sound intimidating, when performed by a trained professional like ours here at Core Chiropractic + Wellness in Bakersfield, the results can be lift-changing. Reach out to us today to learn more.

Sciatica

Sciatica is a type of nerve pain that starts in the lower back and radiates a sharp pain down the posterior and leg. Sciatica got its name from the sciatic nerve that runs through the lower back and legs. Sciatica is often a result of the sciatic nerve being under stress or experiencing irritation. 

 

When this happens, chiropractic treatment can be implemented to properly realign the spine. Once the spine is back in its default location, it can help free up more space around the sciatic nerve and reduce the stressing factors that are causing sciatica. 

 

 

 

Neck Pain

Neck pain can be the result of chronic stress, poor posture, personal injury, and much more. Regardless of how you got the neck pain, though, chiropractic treatment can help. Our chiropractic treatment in Bakersfield focuses on realigning your spine and joints and loosening up your muscles. Much of the time, the loosening of the surrounding muscles and joints helps you to relax the muscles that are tensing up in your neck creating the neck pain.

Chronic Aches and Pains

Chiropractic medicine is a very powerful tool that you can use to treat fibromyalgia and other chronic pain conditions. Much of the time when we experience back pain or neck pain, it is due to a misalignment or another obstacle slowing your body down from its natural healing process. Chiropractic treatment helps your body remove the obstacles standing in its own way. We often do this through spinal manipulation techniques that put your spine back in its proper positioning. We also use other chiropractic techniques that help to relax your muscles and loosen your joints.

 

 

Headaches

Headaches are one of the more tricky and complicated afflictions to treat because there are so many different factors that can lead to a number of different headaches. There are tension headaches, cluster headaches, headaches that come from poor posture, headaches that come from eye strain — the list goes on. Depending on the type of headache you are experiencing and what the cause is, chiropractic treatment can be a viable option. To get a professional diagnostic to determine if our chiropractors can help you, reach out to us at Core Chiropractic + Wellness in Bakersfield today!

Stress

Stress — especially chronic stress — can lead to a number of health complications. Stress weakens your immune system, causes your muscles to get tense and sore, can reduce your sleep quality, and more. While chiropractic treatment probably won’t make your life less stressful, it can help your muscles loosen up and move your spine back to a happier location. The one-two combo chiropractors can provide is great for relaxing your muscles and helping your body unwind a bit.
