Understanding Extremity Adjustment
Every joint in your body is at risk for misalignment, not just your spine. This misalignment can cut down on your functionality and your range of motion. During an extremity adjustment, the joints will be properly realigned and rehabilitated.
When we talk about extremity joints, we are talking about any joints beyond the vertebra of the spine.
Which Extremities Can Be Realigned?
The extremity joints which can be treated with adjustments can include the following joints:
Why Would I Need An Extremity Adjustment?
When joints are out of alignment, it can cause problems for the tissues which surround the joint. These tissues will stretch painfully when the joint is misaligned. This can even weaken the attached muscles as well. Over time, this can cause a great deal of pain and stiffness in the area. Many people mistakenly think that they are experiencing sore muscles or tight muscles, when in fact their pain and stiffness are being caused by misaligned joints in the extremities.
What Are The Benefits of Extremity Adjustment?
Extremity adjustment is a great way to deal with chronic pain without harsh medication. For those who are dealing with chronic pain, it is essential to find a drug-free all-natural method of pain management. Other benefits can include:
- Reduction of inflammation
- Increases immune function
- Decreases stress
- Natural increases energy.
Why Should I Visit A Chiropractor?
Chiropractic care aims to get down to the root of the issues causing you pain or decreasing your mobility. This is very different from traditional medicine. Traditional medical care will often simply treat the pain issues you are complaining of. This will often be done with harsh pain medications. These types of medications often have harsh side effects and even addictive properties.
