Often people assume that Chiropractors only adjust the joints of the spine. Every joint in the body can become misaligned and lose normal motion and function. Extremity adjusting can be very specific and deliberate especially when using an instrument to deliver the precise line of drive to correct the dysfunction of that joint. It is very safe and effective. These joints include the ribs, shoulder and elbow, wrist and hand, hip, knee, ankle and foot, as well as the hands and toes.
Spinal manipulation is one technique from the spectrum of manual therapies that is most often used to treat pain in the neck or back, although it also can relieve discomforts of the musculoskeletal system, which includes all of our joints and muscles throughout the body. This therapy uses mobilization and manipulation techniques to help restore full movement to restricted joints, as well normal elasticity to muscles and other soft tissues. Restoring mechanical and soft tissue balance benefits the structures of the entire body and its physiological mechanisms.
