Chiropractors understand that one of the main causes of pain and disease is the misalignment and abnormal motion of the vertebrae in the spinal column called a subluxation. Chiropractic works by removing these subluxations in the spine, thereby relieving pressure and irritation on the nerves, restoring joint mobility, and returning the body back to a state of normal function.

Numerous studies have demonstrated that chiropractic care is one of the most effective treatments for back pain, neck pain, headaches, whiplash, sports injuries and many other types of musculoskeletal problems. It has even been shown to be effective in reducing high blood pressure, decreasing the frequency of childhood ear infections, and improving the symptoms of asthma. More and more scientific research is demonstrating the tremendous detrimental impact that subluxation have on the tissue of the body. In order to be truly healthy, it is vital that your nervous system be functioning free of interference from subluxations. Chiropractors are the only health professionals trained in the detection, location, and correction of the vertebral subluxation complex through chiropractic care.

The chiropractic adjustment is a quick thrust applied to a vertebra for the purpose of correcting its position, movement or both. Adjustments are often accompanied by an audible release of gas that sounds like a 'crack.' The sound sometimes shocks people a little bit the first couple times they get adjusted, but the sensation is usually relieving. Occasionally, minor discomfort is experienced, especially if the surrounding muscles are in spasm or the patient tenses up during the chiropractic procedure. There are times when the audible 'cracking' does not occur. This is often due to either significant muscle tightness or that the patient may be having a hard time relaxing during their adjustments.

In this section, you will find articles on chiropractic's history, how wellness and medical care differ, and what exactly is an "adjustment" is and how it's used in an chiropractor's office.

  • Wellness vs. Medical Care

    What's the main difference between wellness care and standard medical care?

  • "Dr. Mongold and his team are as good as it gets. A few years ago, I experienced pain in my neck and lower back. After a few months of trying in vain to get through the pain, I made an appt. with Dr. Mongold. I didn't really know what to expect because I had never been to a Chiropractor, but I was pleasantly surprised by the technology Dr. Mongold used to determine the cause of the pain and develop a treatment plan. After a few visits, I began to sleep better and the discomfort subsiding. I completed the six month treatment plan and I am happy to say I have not had any pain and discomfort since.

    Dr. Mongold has been recognized in years past as Bakersfield's Best Chiropractor for obvious reasons. He earned that honor for his expertise in the field of Chiropractics and his moral and ethical convictions. I highly recommend Dr. Mongold and his team!"
