Elon Bartlett is a Walnut Creek Chiropractor

Dr Bartlett will explain his approach, and what he can do to help you. Chiropractic treatments at Acorn Wellness Center are long enough to always include soft tissue work which addresses the muscle tension patterns that cause joint restrictions, and then end with chiropractic adjustments to reset your nervous system so that you’re healthier. Sessions may also include instruction on stretching and strengthening exercises and ways to alter your lifestyle, all with the goal of preventing your issue from returning.

The common goal of chiropractic services is to help you get out of pain, feel relaxed, and increase your level of health and vitality. Acorn Wellness Center serves the East Bay with locations in Walnut Creek & Oakland.

Meet Our Chiropractor

Acorn Wellness Center in Walnut Creek, CA is run by Chiropractor Elon Bartlett. Dr Bartlett is one of Walnut Creek’s top-rated chiropractors, and has been specializing in prenatal and postpartum chiropractic care since 2001, making him one of the Bay Area’s most experienced chiropractors as well.

Dr. Bartlett has always had a passion for optimal body mechanics and bodywork which can be seen in his background as a massage therapist and advanced student of Tai Chi Chuan. Another passion of his, empowering birth, began as a child upon seeing images of his own, peaceful home birth. Once he made the progression from massage therapist to chiropractor, he combined his passions by specializing in prenatal and postpartum chiropractic care.

From both Walnut Creek & Oakland, CA locations, Dr. Bartlett practices Diversified chiropractic, incorporating Activator, Drop, NeuroMuscular Re-education (NMR), and CranioSacral Therapy (CST) into his treatments. His treatment style is gentle and precise, meaning he only uses as much force as is required to achieve the desired result. What sets him apart as a chiropractor is that he begins every treatment with NMR, a therapeutic form of massage, to soften muscle tension first and then uses manual palpation to assess what treatment is needed, only relying on X-Ray when required.

Chiropractic Care in Walnut Creek

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 microtrauma. 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 in Walnut Creek, 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.

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.

I ended up injuring my back, and with a big motorcycle trip coming up, I went to see Dr. Bartlett.  What a fantastic experience!  He used some incredible massage techniques on my upper back before doing the chiropractic adjustments, which made a huge difference. Even before the chiropractic session was over, my back was feeling loose and relaxed.  Within a few hours, my pain was completely gone, and it stayed that way through my trip! Thanks Dr. Bartlett!

I have nothing but wonderful things to say about the treatment I received from Dr Bartlett. He took the time to write out individualized super bills after each one of our visits to make sure I was properly reimbursed by my insurance companies. He was extremely thorough and never missed a pain point — massaging the tensest spots before a more traditional chiropractic adjustment. I don’t know what I would do without Acorn Wellness! Thank you, Dr Bartlett!

Elon Bartlett is hands down the best chiropractor I’ve ever been to. I saw him for rib pain, an ankle sprain, and ongoing neck and shoulder problems and saw incredible progress and resolution of my issues. He’s also really kind, takes his time to listen and understand, and makes me feel really safe and cared for. This should be the standard for all chiropractors

How We’re Different Than Other Chiropractors

We don’t just “crack your back” and send you out the door in 3 minutes like some chiropractors. We spend the time it takes to determine what are the underlying patterns in your body, and then address those with massage and teach you stretches and strengthening techniques to keep your problem from returning.

As a result, the benefits of your chiropractic treatment will last longer, which means you can achieve results in fewer visits, saving you time and money.

Are you experiencing joint pain that’s keeping you from your favorite activities? Do you have sore muscles that affect your daily routine or quality of sleep? Pain management can feel like a never-ending cycle of medication, doctors’ visits, new treatments, and more medication. It doesn’t have to be this way. You can feel better. And you can feel better naturally, with chiropractic care.

Chiropractic care is most often associated with back pain and spinal issues. However, chiropractic treatment can be very effective in alleviating pain in joint and muscle conditions and injuries throughout the entire body. Hips, knees, shoulders, ankles and elbows are some of the larger joints in the human body. When these joints do not work properly, the surrounding soft tissue – your ligaments and muscles – cannot work properly either. When there is an issue in a joint, muscles and ligaments become elongated or shortened. This causes muscle stress and pain.

Surgery or long-term dependence on painkillers or other medication is not the only way to treat joint and muscle pain and discomfort. Many joint injuries can be fixed without surgery. By correcting the underlying cause of joint dysfunction and muscle pain, a chiropractor can restore your normal range of motion and soft tissue is allowed to heal.
