Many patients present to our chiropractic office with joint pain and problems in the upper and lower extremities. Examination and treatment of shoulders, elbows, wrists, hips, knees and ankles is common in our practice. Joints of the extremities are evaluated for mechanics, stability and the extent of tissue injury. Radiographs (x-rays) are used when needed.
Treatment typically consists of some combination of chiropractic extremity adjusting, stretching, strengthening, therapeutics (heat, ice, etc.) and maintenance. Very often joint pain is a consequence of postural stress, structural imbalance and poor body mechanics. When this is the case, we treat the cause of these larger issues as well as the specific area of joint pain.
