Chiropractors adjust extremities? First let me explain what is meant by the word "extremity". When chiropractors speak of an extremity, we are talking about the joints of the body that are outside the spinal joints. These joints include the ribs, shoulder and elbow, wrist and hand, hip, knee, ankle and foot, as well as the hands and toes.
Chiropractors look at the spine for joint fixations, subluxations, and joint motion dysfunction. In a very similar way, extremities can have fixations, subluxations, and joint motion restrictions. These problems may be chronic or acute and many people have great relief from their extremity adjustments.
Signs or possible symptoms of an extremity issue that can be helped by a chiropractor:
The goal of adjusting extremities is to restore the original and proper alignment of the joint which allows it to have normal and proper function.
Dr. Rising at Gallatin Valley Chiropractic of Bozeman has additional elective training in extremities and extremity adjusting was one of his major emphesis during his education.
