Many people are surprised to learn that joint pain in the hand, wrist, elbow, shoulder, ankle, or knee can often be helped by chiropractic care.
All joints of the body can lose their normal motion and position. When joint function is impaired, there is reduced range of motion, inflammation, calcium buildup, and scar tissue. This can be caused from repetitive motions, improper sitting, overexertion, slips, falls, accidents, and other causes. Awareness of these types of problems has become more common with terms like “tennis elbow”, “runner’s knee”, “frozen shoulder”, and “carpal tunnel syndrome”.
Joint manipulation using chiropractic extremity adjustments helps to restore normal range of motion to joints, improves blood circulation, reduces scar tissue and speeds the healing process.
