A chiropractic extremity adjustment is a type of chiropractic treatment that involves the manipulation of joints in the extremities, such as the arms, legs, shoulders, feet or hands. This type of adjustment is used to improve the range of motion, reduce pain, and improve function in the extremities.
Chiropractic extremity adjustments work by using a controlled force to optimally mobilize the joint. This can help reduce inflammation, improve circulation, and relieve pain.
The number of adjustments you need will vary depending on your condition. Most people need to be treated one to two times per week for the first few weeks and then less often as their condition improves.
Chiropractic extremity adjustments can be beneficial for people of all ages with a variety of conditions, including:
· Joint pain in the extremities
· Muscle pain in the extremities
· Carpal tunnel syndrome
· Tennis elbow
· Shoulder pain or frozen shoulder
· Foot pain
· Knee pain
· Hip pain
