Looking for a Chiropractor in Bakersfield

I have just now started to look for a Bakersfield chiropractor, but only after I figured out that this is really the only way that I am going to be able to get my back fixed. I went to see a doctor about it and she sent me to see a back specialist. He messed around for a good long time and then he gave a prescription for a bottle of pain pills. I am sort of afraid of those things, because I used to work with this guy who got addicted to them and it led to all sorts of bad outcomes for him. Of course a lot of people really thought that he was abusing the pills before he got hooked on them, but that is beside the point. Those pills are really all sorts of dangerous and I do not want to have anything to do with them if there is any alternative.

I have been looking around and trying to figure out what to do for some time. Obviously I want to avoid the risks as best as I can and I want to figure out what is going to give me the result that I want. That means I would be able to move around with no pain and get out of bed in the morning without having to loosen up my back. However when you realize what a chiropractor is doing, that is when you want to be careful. They are going to use some measure of force to move the vertebra into the right place relative to one another. If this is done properly then I am going to be real happy and everything is going to be rainbows and puppy dogs. If it is not done right I am going to be in a lot of trouble.
