3 Things You Need to Know About Extremity Adjustments

Here at Cornerstone Chiropractic, we offer extremity adjustments. Extremity adjustments can reduce your overall body pain, improve your health and restore your range of motion. If you are an athlete, they can help you maintain your performance levels and reduce your chances of injury.

Less Overall Body Pain

When an extremity joint is out of alignment, it can cause pain elsewhere. This is true with shoulder injuries and misalignments in the feet, ankles, knees and hips. Upper back pain and headaches can be caused by shoulder injuries and misalignments. In order to fully heal the injury and reduce the pain, the shoulder must be treated as well as the back and neck.

If your hips or pelvis is out of alignment, it can cause pain in the thighs and lower back. Correcting the misalignment, in this instance, will reduce hip, thigh and lower back pain.

Better Range of Motion

When a joint is misaligned, it moves incorrectly, causing inflammation and a reduction in range of motion. For example, tennis elbow is a repetitive motion injury of the outside tendons that connect the forearm to the upper arm. When the elbow is misaligned, it puts stress and pressure on the tendons, leading to pain, inflammation and a repetitive motion injury. Correcting the misalignment reduces inflammation and improves the range of motion of the elbow.

Improved Health and Wellness

Injured and misaligned extremity joints can impact your daily life. For example, having a misaligned knee affects the way you walk. This can translate into pain in the knee and lower back. Having your knee adjusted can facilitate proper movement and reduce inflammation and pain, which helps you walk and perform daily tasks.

If you play sports, having your extremity joints periodically examined and adjusted can help prevent injuries and ensure that your joints are functioning correctly. This helps you stay in the game, burn calories and improve your overall fitness.
