Dr Bartlett is one of the Bay Area’s top-rated chiropractors and has been specializing in chiropractic care since 2001.

Chiropractic care is famous for being an effective treatment for back pain. The lesser known but larger goal of all chiropractors is for your nervous system to be functioning optimally so that your overall state of health is at its best. Joints become irritated by accidents, over-exertion, or long-term, repetitive micro-trauma. Your muscles become tight to prevent future injury and the region becomes inflamed, which can then block the flow of your nerves.

A chiropractor is trained to detect the irritated areas and restore joint motion with gentle impulses called chiropractic adjustments. These chiropractic adjustments bring about relief from pain in the back, as well as other areas, and improve nervous system regulation.

At Acorn Wellness Center, we believe that combining massage with chiropractic treatments makes for an even more effective and dramatic result. The affected areas are targeted with highly refined and therapeutic massage before the chiropractic adjustments, making any back pain treatments easier, the benefits longer lasting, and the relief from pain faster.

Benefits of Chiropractic Care with Massage:

  • Reduced pain & tenderness
  • lncreased range of motion & flexibility (back and elsewhere)
  • lncreased circulation & removal of lactic acid
  • Reduced scar-tissue/adhesions
  • Increased athletic performance
  • Reduced chance of injury
  • Reduced muscle spasms

Even if you’re not sick or in pain your body may still be acquiring micro injuries that are interfering with your nervous system and keeping you from optimal health. Regular chiropractic care can help you have a strong and healthy immune system and stave off illnesses, injuries and chronic degeneration.
