The Benefits of Extremity Adjusting

knee examination/adjustmentWhen we think of chiropractic care, the first image that comes to mind is often a spine adjustment. However, chiropractic care encompasses more than just spinal adjustments. Extremity adjusting, a specialized branch of chiropractic care, focuses on treating joints outside the spine, such as shoulders, elbows, wrists, hips, knees, and ankles.

Understanding Extremity Adjusting:

Extremity adjusting is a technique employed by chiropractors to evaluate, diagnose, and treat misalignments or dysfunctions in joints other than the spine. These misalignments, also known as subluxations, can result from repetitive stress, traumatic injuries, overuse, or even poor posture.

By restoring proper alignment and function to these joints, I aim to improve overall health and enhance the body’s natural healing capabilities. Dr. Eric Delorme

The Importance of Extremity Health:

Our extremities play a crucial role in everyday activities, ranging from simple tasks like typing on a keyboard to engaging in sports and physical activities. When an extremity joint is misaligned or not functioning optimally, it can lead to pain, limited range of motion, and reduced performance in various aspects of life. By addressing extremity issues, the chiropractors at Woodroffe Chiropractic & Massage Therapy can help individuals regain mobility, alleviate pain, and improve their quality of life.

Conditions Treated through Extremity Adjusting:

Extremity adjusting can provide relief and assistance for a wide range of conditions. Woodroffe Chiropractic & Massage Therapy emphasizes the importance of extremity adjustments in addressing ailments such as:

Carpal Tunnel Syndrome: Extremity adjustments can help relieve pressure on the median nerve, which runs through the carpal tunnel in the wrist, offering a non-invasive alternative to surgical intervention.

Tennis Elbow/Golfer’s Elbow: Adjustments can help restore proper alignment and function to the elbow joint, reducing pain and inflammation associated with these overuse injuries.

Plantar Fasciitis: By addressing misalignments in the foot and ankle, extremity adjustments can alleviate the pain and discomfort caused by plantar fasciitis, a common condition affecting the bottom of the foot.

Shoulder Impingement: Extremity adjustments can help correct alignment issues in the shoulder joint, relieving impingement and restoring pain-free range of motion.

Knee and Hip Pain: Misalignments in the knee and hip joints can lead to pain and discomfort, impacting mobility. Extremity adjusting can help restore proper joint mechanics and alleviate pain.

Benefits of Extremity Adjusting:

Pain Relief: Extremity adjustments target the root cause of joint pain, providing effective and drug-free pain relief.

Improved Range of Motion: By restoring proper alignment, extremity adjustments can enhance joint mobility and flexibility, allowing individuals to move more freely.

Enhanced Performance: Whether you’re an athlete, a weekend warrior, or simply want to perform daily tasks efficiently, extremity adjusting can optimize joint function and help you reach your peak performance.

Avoidance of Surgery: In many cases, extremity adjusting can offer a conservative and non-invasive alternative to surgical interventions, providing relief and promoting healing without the risks and recovery time associated with surgery.

Extremity adjusting is an essential component of chiropractic care that focuses on restoring proper alignment and function to joints outside the spine. By addressing misalignments in extremity joints, chiropractors can help alleviate pain, improve mobility, and enhance overall well-being.
