Extremity Adjusting in Madison

Doctor holding patient's armWhen you think of chiropractic care, you likely associate it with relieving back and neck pain. While chiropractic does an excellent job of addressing discomfort in those areas, it also offers effective solutions for issues with the extremities—any part of the body outside the spine.

The joints that can be adjusted as part of extremity care encompass a wide range. They stretch from the shoulder to the elbow, wrist, hands, fingers, wrist bones, hips, femur head, knees, ankles, feet, and toes. All these areas can be adjusted.

Help for More Than Sports Injuries

While many people associate extremity issues with sports injuries like tennis elbow or golfer’s elbow, it’s important to note that they are not limited to athletic individuals. Sometimes, pain experienced in the knee or foot can actually stem from lower back problems. Accurate diagnosis is crucial in distinguishing between the two.

Common sports injuries involving extremities include knee sprains and strains, as well as ankle and foot injuries. Additionally, individuals who spend long hours typing on computers often experience carpal tunnel syndrome, which may require adjustment of the wrists and, in some cases, the elbow and shoulder joint.

Shoulder problems are also prevalent among various demographics, due to both sports-related injuries and the unique range of motion the shoulder joint offers.

Consider the case of a recent patient who came to us with a slight bulge in his low back. Before considering surgery, his medical doctor referred him to us. Many times, seeking chiropractic care first can help patients avoid surgery altogether.

A Multipronged Approach

In addition to chiropractic adjustments, other complementary therapies, such as massage, physical therapy, and rehab and exercises, can be used to address extremity issues. We offer these holistic approaches to not only ensure proper alignment, but also help strengthen the affected areas, promoting long-lasting results.
