Many of the patients we see come in with some sort of pain in the extremities. This can be the shoulder, elbow, hand, or anywhere in between. It can also be the hip, knee, foot, or anywhere in between. As with pain in the neck and back, there are a number of bones, joints, tendons, and muscles in our extremities. After we determine what is most likely causing the pain, we treat conditions accordingly, whether it involves muscle work, adjustments of the extremity, or other therapies. However, the principal that we hold for treating each of these patients is to be sure to look for subluxations in areas of the spine which innervate these extremities, and adjust accordingly. When these areas are adjusted, proper nerve flow is restored. This allows the body to heal properly and more quickly.
