Extremities: Hands, Wrists, Arms, Shoulders, Hips, Legs, Knees, Ankles and Feet
Our extremities take a beating most days, working, playing sports or games, running errands, caring for our families and homes. All this activity puts your extremities through their paces. But over use, or wear and tear can lead to a host of extremity problems such as carpal tunnel syndrome, tennis elbow, shoulder pains from sports etc.
Luckily many if not most extremity conditions respond well to the proper balance of chiropractic extremity adjustment, muscle and myofascial work, proper bracing if needed. Exercises to strengthen weak muscles and stretch over tight ones are often needed to address extremity pains and dysfunction, especially for problems that have been plaguing you for a long time.
If you have suffered a recent injury like a sprain or strain there are special nutrients that can speed healing of the injured ligaments or muscles. A different set of nutrients can help chronic long-standing muscle, tendon or ligament problems.
Chronic muscle injuries often respond well to our Graston technique or myofascial release that frees ingrained tight muscle and myofascial fibers.
The bottom line is, there is often a combination of treatments we can offer to address painful conditions for Hands, Wrists, Arms, Shoulders, Hips, Legs, Knees, Ankles and Feet and keep you working and playing without so much suffering.
