Our chiropractor in Waterford Township at Aspire Family Chiropractic offers extremity adjustments as well as regular chiropractic adjustments. Many of our patients visit with our chiropractor for sports Injuries, knee, shoulder, elbow, hip, arm, and foot pain, not just for spinal injuries. What a lot of people do not realize is that our chiropractor can help alleviate pain in several areas of the body, not just the spine. The impression of chiropractic treatments being only for the spine is a thing of the past.
While spinal adjustments are the main component of what a chiropractor does, it is not all we do. Our chiropractor also treats issues that involve other parts of your body. A person’s joints are susceptible to a great deal of pain, as they are parts of the body which sustain the most wear and tear. Our chiropractor provides extremity adjustments that treat joint pain in a natural and drug-free way, just as conventional adjustments treat the spine.
During your visit, our chiropractor will examine your musculoskeletal system. This will help our chiropractor find the underlying source of your symptoms. If an extremity joint is found to be misaligned, a sequence of soothing adjustments can help work the joint back into its original position, allowing it to function as it did before the misalignment, thus resolving any pain.
Extremity adjustments are founded on the same principles as spinal adjustments. The purpose of extremity adjustments is to repair the regular range of motion of the extremities. Sometimes, extremity adjustments need additional treatments to completely repair the damage that has accumulated. Combining extremity adjustments with soft tissue manipulation, laser therapy, and therapeutic exercises will help the involved joints greatly. Several treatments may be necessary to achieve the outcome you desire, but we will give you exercises and stretching on your own to help the healing process. Extremity adjustments can be used to fix many joint problems. Your joints can become askew and cause pain, just like your spine. These adjustments have the added benefit of helping to prevent too much wear and tear on the joints, allowing them to continue to function properly and painlessly.
