Extremity Pain Relief in Oak Creek

More Than Just Spine Care

person with knee painDid you know that chiropractic care, which works wonders for the spine, can also be applied to other joints in the body? At Evolved Chiropractic, we provide comprehensive care beyond the back. Our skilled chiropractor is trained in extremity adjusting, a specialized technique that improves function and range of motion in various joints throughout your body.

Why Do Extremities Need Adjusting?

Extremities refer to joints outside the spine, including wrists, elbows, shoulders, jaw, hips, knees, ankles, and feet. These articulations are susceptible to fixations and misalignments that may cause pain, stiffness, reduced mobility, and even nerve-related symptoms such as numbness and tingling.

While many health problems are often traced back to spinal issues, it’s essential to recognize that other joints in your body may also require attention. Chiropractic extremity adjusting may significantly enhance your range of motion and reduce painful inflammation without resorting to drugs or surgical procedures.

How We Help

Some common conditions that benefit from this method of adjustment include:

  • Carpal Tunnel Syndrome is characterized by compression of the median nerve as it passes through the ligaments in your wrist. While the primary focus is often on the wrist, the underlying cause may originate from misalignments in the neck, shoulder, elbow, or wrist joints. Identifying the involved joints and implementing a targeted care plan may delay or avoid surgery, provide relief, and restore optimal function.
  • Temporomandibular Joint (TMJ) Disorders: stress, teeth grinding, and spinal problems may all contribute to TMJ disorders, which affect the joint connecting your jaw to your skull. Symptoms may include pain, stiffness, clicking sounds, or a locked jaw. Skilled chiropractic care helps restore proper nervous system control of the muscles and ligaments, alleviating discomfort and improving jaw function.
  • Shoulder Problems: many shoulder issues stem from the area where nerves branch from the spinal cord and exit the neck. Chiropractic care can be a game-changer if you experience shoulder or radiating pain down your arm, accompanied by weakness, numbness, or tingling in your wrists or hands. Our patients report dramatic improvement in their symptoms through our interventions.
  • Tennis Elbow (Lateral Epicondylitis): tennis elbow is a repetitive strain injury commonly affecting the dominant arm. It’s prevalent among individuals who perform tasks involving repeated hammering, grasping, or rotary forearm motions. An in-depth examination followed by appropriate chiropractic care has shown excellent results in effectively managing this condition.
  • Pelvic Girdle and Hip Issues: the hips and sacrum form the foundation of your spine, known as the “pelvic girdle.” Misalignments in the sacroiliac joints affect the nerves exiting the spine, leading to hip problems. While hip adjustments may produce remarkable outcomes, there can also be malfunctioning joints above or below the pelvis contributing to your problem.
  • Ankle Problems: the most frequently injured joint in the body, the ankle often requires special attention. Common foot problems, such as pronation (outward flare of the feet and inward rotation of kneecaps), may lead to instability and increased stress on the foot. Adjusting malfunctioning joints in the feet may reduce tenderness, improve gait, and stabilize the entire skeletal system.
