Understanding Extremity Adjusting

What is Extremity Adjusting?

Extremity adjusting is a chiropractic approach that extends beyond spinal adjustments to address other joints in your body. This technique is essential for maintaining proper function and range of motion across your entire skeletal system. By targeting joints such as the wrist, jaw, shoulder, elbow, hip, and ankle, our chiropractors can alleviate pain and enhance mobility.

Benefits of Extremity Adjusting

  • Improved Range of Motion: Restores flexibility and movement.
  • Pain Relief: Reduces inflammation and discomfort in affected joints.
  • Non-Invasive: Avoids the need for drugs or surgery.
  • Enhanced Function: Promotes optimal nervous system function.

Common Conditions Treated with Extremity Adjusting

Wrist: Carpal Tunnel Syndrome

Carpal tunnel syndrome is often caused by the compression of the median nerve in the wrist. Misalignments in the neck, shoulder, elbow, or wrist can contribute to this condition. Our chiropractic care program identifies the involved joints and provides effective treatments to avoid surgery.

Jaw: TMJ Disorders

Temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorders can result from stress, teeth grinding, and spinal issues. These disorders cause pain, stiffness, clicking sounds, headaches, or a locked jaw. Chiropractic care can restore proper nervous system control, alleviating these symptoms.

Shoulder: Nerve-Related Pain

Shoulder problems often originate where nerves exit the spinal cord in the neck. This can cause shoulder pain or pain radiating down the arm, accompanied by weakness, numbness, or tingling. Chiropractic adjustments can dramatically improve these conditions.

Elbow: Tennis Elbow

Tennis elbow, or lateral epicondylitis, is a repetitive strain injury affecting many individuals, including carpenters, mechanics, office workers, and athletes. Chiropractic care offers thorough examination and appropriate treatment to produce excellent results.

Hip: Pelvic Girdle Issues

The hips and sacrum form the pelvic girdle, the foundation of your spine. Issues in these sacroiliac joints can affect spinal nerves. Chiropractic adjustments of the hips can produce excellent results, especially when addressing malfunctioning joints above or below the pelvis.

Ankle: Pronation and Foot Problems

The ankle is the most frequently injured joint, with pronation (feet flaring outward) being a common issue. This condition can cause knee and foot pain. Chiropractic adjustments combined with custom shoe orthotics can reduce tenderness, improve gait, and stabilize the skeletal system.
