On a recent road trip (partially along the California five freeway) to Yosemite National Forest, I passed by a number of chiropractic offices. We stopped in Bakersfield on Friday to visit the office of Dr. James Ryan and took some photographs of chiropractic offices in Fresno.

On Saturday, I was in Oakhurst, Fish Camp, and Coarsegold, and took photos of signs and outsides of chiropractic offices I located while in those towns. This photo was taken off of California Highway 41.

Chiropractic Coarsegold

There is a new hotel and casino in Coarsegold (which looked massive) but I didn’t visit the property. Coarsegold is in Madera County California. Pretty sure the name comes from California gold rush times since there’s billboards featuring pictures of prospectors along the highway. It’s a small town but this chiropractic office was located directly on the main highway (41) and it was easy to spot traveling to and from Yosemite Park.

Someone in a nearby market told me there is an abundance of tarantulas in the area, especially in October and November. So from what I could see when visiting Coarsegold, there’s a chiropractic office, a post office, a hardware store, a vitamin store (located next to the chiropractor’s office), a carpet and upholstery cleaning service (see the top of the sign) and a few other businesses. Here is a view of the chiropractic office from the front.

The trees in the background appear a bit hazy due to the recent fires in the area. At least 50 fire trucks from places like Visalia were heading up Highway 41 as I was passing back through town on Tuesday. Highway 41 is also known as Southern Yosemite Highway in that area.
