Chiropractors can adjust extremities!?
An extremity joint is any part that is outside the spine. These joints include the ribs, shoulder and elbow, wrist and hand, hip, knee, ankle and foot, as well as the fingers and toes.
Chiropractors look at the spine for joint fixations and joint motion dysfunction. In a very similar way, extremities can have fixations and joint motion restrictions. These problems may be chronic or acute and many people have great relief from their extremity adjustments.
Signs or possible symptoms of an extremity issue that can be helped by a chiropractor:
- Extremity pain or pain in the extremity joint
- Weakness in an extremity or joint
- Stiffness in the extremity
- Immobility of an extremity joint
- Numbness or tingling in an extremity
- Catching or locking of an extremity joint
The goal in adjusting extremities is to restore the original alignment of the joint which allows normal motion and function. To compliment adjusting, we also offer modalities such as Active Release Technique, Dry Needling, Graston Technique and Kinesiology Taping to help with extremity pain.
