Extremities: More Than The Spine
The body is a complex machine, and one part can have a significant impact on the whole. When even one part of your body is injured, it can affect the nervous system and keep your body from performing at maximum function. That’s why at Crevar Chiropractic, we treat more than just the spine. We treat injuries in the extremities to help relieve pain and prevent chronic issues.
Extremities include, but are not limited to, the shoulders, arms, knees, hips, and ankles.
When these body parts are misaligned or functioning improperly, the surrounding tissue can become inflamed or damaged. Common issues and problems include frozen shoulder, tennis and golfer’s elbow, runner’s knee, plantar fasciitis, and carpal tunnel.
When it comes to foot and ankle pain, high, flat, or uneven arches are two of the most common culprits.
A misalignment in the arch can lead to hip pain, lower back pain and knee pain. Following the standards of functional medicine, Dr. Crevar pinpoints the root cause of this pain, like a misalignment of the ankle or foot. He then treats patients accordingly, not only alleviating symptoms, but treating the source of the problem.
Shoulder pain is another common extremity issue that can be treated with chiropractic care. Frozen shoulder, which causes pain, stiffness, and reduced mobility in the shoulder, is one such common ailment. Through massage therapy, spinal alignment, and stretching treatments, Dr. Crevar and the rest of our staff can help reduce shoulder pain associated with frozen shoulder and other injuries.
If you play a sport like golf or tennis, you may be more susceptible to extremity issues. These sports in particular result in a very common problem: tennis and golfer’s elbow. Chiropractic care can help alleviate irritated or inflamed tissue to help realign the elbow joint and restore normal range of motion.
Additionally, chiropractic care can help treat hip pain, knee injuries, and other issues in the extremities. Other benefits of chiropractic adjustments for the extremities include better flexibility, better joint movement, and reduced likelihood of future injuries.
Performing extremity adjustments helps realign the joints, alleviating inflamed or damaged tissue, managing chronic pain, and promoting overall bodily health. Optimal function of the extremities and spine lead to better nervous system function and better overall health and wellness.
Whether you suffer from sports injuries, chronic issues, or other extremity pain, chiropractic treatment at Crevar is natural and drug-free. Don’t let chronic pain or injuries slow you down. Visit Crevar Chiropractic today and take a step towards a healthier life.
