Enhancing Wellness Through Extremity Adjusting

Did you realize that the effective chiropractic techniques utilized for spinal care can also be extended to other joints within your body? Nearly every joint in your skeletal system is susceptible to fixations that can hinder functionality and limit range of motion, including:


Carpal tunnel syndrome often arises from the compression of the median nerve within the ligamentous band of the wrist. Frequently, the root cause stems from misalignments in joints located in the neck, shoulder, elbow, or wrist. Identifying these involved joints and undergoing a chiropractic care regimen can often circumvent the need for surgery.


TMJ (temporomandibular joint) disorders, resulting from stress, teeth grinding, or spinal issues, can affect the joint connecting your jaw to your skull. Skilled chiropractic intervention can restore proper nervous system control over affected muscles and ligaments, thereby reducing pain, stiffness, clicking sounds, or jaw locking.


Many shoulder ailments originate from the region where nerves branch out from the spinal cord and exit the neck. Shoulder pain, along with pain radiating down the arm, may be accompanied by weakness, numbness, or tingling in the wrists or hands. Numerous patients have reported significant improvement through chiropractic care.


Commonly known as tennis elbow, lateral epicondylitis is a repetitive strain injury prevalent in the dominant arm, affecting individuals such as carpenters, mechanics, office workers, cashiers, and those engaged in repeated hammering, grasping, and rotary forearm motions. A comprehensive examination followed by tailored chiropractic care has shown remarkable results.


The hips and sacrum, constituting the “pelvic girdle,” serve as the foundation of your spine. Dysfunctional sacroiliac joints can impact nerves exiting the spine. While chiropractic adjustments targeting the hips can yield excellent outcomes, many hip issues may originate from malfunctioning joints above or below the pelvis.


As the most frequently injured joint in the body, the ankle is often affected by “pronation,” where the feet flare outward and kneecaps rotate inward. Weak arches can cause foot bones to drop into an unstable position, increasing stress on the foot. Addressing malfunctioning foot joints through adjustments, coupled with custom shoe orthotics, can alleviate tenderness, enhance gait, and stabilize the entire skeletal system.
