Extremity Adjusting in O’Fallon

Did you know that the chiropractic approach that works so well with the spine can be applied to other joints of your body?

Virtually every articulation of your skeletal system is susceptible to fixations that can impair function and range of motion, including:

Wrist

wrist painCompression of the median nerve within the ligaments of the wrist often leads to carpal tunnel syndrome. In many cases, misaligned joints in the neck, shoulder, elbow, or wrist are the underlying cause. By identifying the affected joint(s) and implementing a chiropractic care program, surgery can often be avoided.

Hip

low back painThe hips and sacrum, together known as the “pelvic girdle,” serve as the foundation of the spine. Dysfunction in the sacroiliac joints can impact nerves exiting the spine. While chiropractic adjustments targeting the hips can yield remarkable outcomes, many hip problems may be caused by malfunctioning joints above or below the pelvis.

Shoulder

shoulder painMany shoulder problems originate from the point where nerves branch out from the spinal cord and exit the neck. Shoulder pain or radiating arm pain may be accompanied by weakness, numbness, or tingling in the wrists or hands. Numerous patients have reported significant improvement through chiropractic care.

Jaw

jaw painTMJ (temporomandibular joint) disorders, characterized by pain and stiffness where the jaw connects to the skull, can be caused by stress, teeth grinding, and spinal issues. Skilled chiropractic care can restore proper nervous system control over the muscles and ligaments involved, alleviating pain, stiffness, clicking sounds, and a locked jaw.

Elbow

elbow painLateral epicondylitis, also known as tennis elbow, is a repetitive strain injury commonly affecting the dominant arm. It frequently occurs among professionals like carpenters, mechanics, office workers, cashiers, and individuals who perform repetitive forearm motions. Thorough examination followed by appropriate chiropractic care has shown excellent results.

Ankle

ankle painThe ankle is prone to frequent injuries and is the most commonly affected joint in the body. Pronation, characterized by the outward flaring of the feet and inward rotation of kneecaps, is a prevalent foot problem. Weak arches can lead to instability and increased stress on the foot. Adjusting dysfunctional joints in the feet, coupled with customized orthotic shoes, often reduces tenderness, improves gait, and stabilizes the entire skeletal system.
