Common Issues Chiropractors Help
Because chiropractic care is a natural way of treating pain and helping the body heal, there really isn’t much that chiropractic care can’t help with. Chiropractic adjustments are even gentle enough for pregnant women and children at any age — even infants! In fact, prenatal chiropractic treatment can be a good idea for both mother and baby to help aid in better recovery after childbirth.
Chiropractors can help with such a wide range of different injuries and health concerns that there are too many to list them all here. Below are some of the most common reasons people seek the help of a professional chiropractor. If you don’t see your concern listed, give us a call directly! One of the Core Chiropractic + Wellness team members will be happy to answer your questions and give you an idea of how our chiropractors can help.

Chiropractic Care Can Help With A Range of Different Issues throughout the body. The most Common Concerns include:
This should be a no-brainer. Chiropractors focus heavily on spine alignment and nervous system well-being, two of the major concerns when it comes to neck and back pain. Often, adjustments and spinal decompression can go a long way toward providing pain relief and, ultimately, healing.
When you get a headache, what’s your first course of action? For many, the answer is to take a couple of over-the-counter pain pills and drink a glass of water. Sure, doing so relieves your pain temporarily, but pain meds aren’t actually going to do much of anything to heal the underlying cause. Chiropractic techniques can provide more lasting relief for migraines and tension headaches and can help reduce their occurrence over time.
It may seem disconnected, but spinal misalignment can actually contribute to symptoms of carpal tunnel syndrome. That's what we mean when we talk about the interconnectivity of the body. Fortunately, chiropractic services can help realign your spine to reduce pain and stop pain from recurring.
Sciatica is commonly caused when tight muscles or problems with bone alignment in your pelvis and lower spine press up against your sciatic nerves. Because the issue is something pressing directly against a major nerve, the result is often lower back pain, but it can also cause pain, numbness, and tingling that extends down the legs. Stretching and chiropractic adjustments can relieve that pressure, then your chiropractor can offer strength-building exercises to help prevent further sciatica pain.
Fibromyalgia & Arthritis
One of the primary markers of fibromyalgia is muscle pain, while arthritis deals in joint pain and stiffness. For both maladies, chiropractic adjustments can provide pain relief that doesn't rely on medication. Chiropractic care, stretches, and manipulations can help relieve pressure on joints, improve alignment, and otherwise reduce strain on muscles and joints to provide relief naturally.
A less-than-stellar mattress can not only leave you tossing and turning at night, but it can also affect your posture, cause headaches, and lead to joint-alignment problems. As you can probably imagine, chiropractic care can alleviate those symptoms — though you may want to get a new mattress, too. In addition, chiropractic adjustments can also help relax tight muscles in your neck and shoulders and help you breathe easier. If you have sleep apnea, this can be a good natural way to get a more restful sleep.
Pregnancy Aches and Pains
The body shifts a lot throughout pregnancy to accommodate your growing baby. On top of that, the added weight puts a lot of strain on your pelvis and spine. All of that adds up to the discomfort and pain you feel. Fortunately, prenatal chiropractic adjustments are gentle and safe enough to realign joints appropriately. Prenatal chiropractic care can even help build strength that will help during delivery and help you recover afterward. At Core Chiropractic + Wellness in Bakersfield, we also use the Webster Technique to help breech pregnancies naturally.
Auto-Accident and Personal Injury
Automotive accidents are one of the major causes of ongoing neck and back pain. Even if the impact doesn’t seem that bad, the jolting can cause alignment issues that can plague you for months or years afterward. Chiropractic adjustments and manipulations can help soothe those alignment issues oftentimes without invasive surgery. However, if you’ve already had surgery and continue to experience pain, talk to your chiropractor about natural pain relief options.
Your body works hard day-in and day-out to do all the things you ask it to. Sometimes, when you push a bit too hard or twist in just the wrong way, a joint may come out of proper alignment. This is something that can happen during strenuous athletic activity but can just as easily happen when doing the laundry or pulling a heavy dish out of the oven. Often, alignment issues can be mild enough that you may not notice them. But, over time, that poorly aligned joint can put pressure on muscles, ligaments, and tendons that support it. The additional pressure on supporting soft tissue can also cause a variety of issues including tears, strained muscles, and nerve pain.
How Chiropractic Care Works
During your initial visit, your chiropractor will start with a comprehensive discussion of your pain and your medical history — and provide pain relief options as needed. Chiropractic care focuses on the body’s function as a whole because so many of our body’s systems are deeply interconnected. It’s important to be as thorough as you can when answering questions and describing what your pain feels like, as this will give your chiropractor a better sense of what’s going on in your body and how to best treat you.
Chiropractic care is very individualized. What works well for one patient may work well for another, and chiropractors take this into consideration when developing a treatment plan. At Bakersfield’s Core Chiropractic + Wellness, our focus is on what your body needs rather than rote treatment. In addition to discussing what’s going on with your body and your medical history, we will take x-rays — but only when necessary. From there, your chiropractor will discuss what’s going on to cause your pain and what the proposed treatment plan is.
A single session with a chiropractor may help relieve pain, but it may or may not be enough to help your injury heal. Multiple sessions may be recommended to help you build up strength around the injured area; this will help lessen your pain and work to prevent the problem from returning in the future. However, at Core Chiropractic + Wellness here in Bakersfield, we don’t hard sell lengthy treatment plans. Our aim is to create the treatment plan that is right for your individual needs. Feel free to ask questions and discuss options with your chiropractor before beginning treatment and at any point going forward.
In most cases, it’s better to be safe than sorry when it comes to your chiropractic health. It never fails that the longer you put back pain or neck pain off, the worse it gets. But how do you know the difference between minor aches and pains and something more serious? Some symptoms and signs that you should reach out to your chiropractor include:
If you suffer from chronic headaches, a Chiropractor can likely help. Here at Core Chiropractic + Wellness in Bakersfield, we employ advanced chiropractic methods and techniques that help to provide long-term relief by dealing with the headache at the source.
This may sound like an obvious sign, but you’d be surprised how many people ignore their bodies and push through the pain. Pain is your body’s way of telling you something is wrong. When you are experiencing a lot of pain, this is a sign that something is very wrong. But you don’t have to grin and bear it, reach out to your local chiropractor for relief.
As unusual as it may sound, if you have uneven tread wear on your shoes, it may be a sign that you need to see a chiropractor. Much like how when your car is out of alignment your tires wear unevenly, your shoes can wear unevenly when your hips or torso is out of alignment.
Part of getting old is not being able to move as well as you used to. But, if you find yourself with a very limited range of motion, this could be due to your muscles being too stiff and tense. Your chiropractor can help ensure that your muscles are relaxing and contracting exactly as they are supposed to, which in turn frees up your range of motion.
Has it been a while since you visited your chiropractor? Or maybe you’ve never even taken the time to experience the magic that is chiropractic. Whatever the case is, seeing your chiropractor regularly can help prevent future injuries, relieve chronic pain, reduce headaches, and so much more.
Jobs, where you sit at a desk all day, can greatly increase your need for a chiropractor. People who work desk jobs often complain of chronic back pain, neck pain, headaches, and more. While your chiropractor can’t help you move more at your job, they can help you counteract some of the symptoms you are having.
On the opposite end of the spectrum, physically demanding jobs can also create problems with your spinal alignment, joins, and muscles. Many people who work physically demanding jobs see noticeable benefits from regularly visiting their chiropractor.
