Extremity/TMJ Adjusting

Wrist painOur doctors are trained to adjust extremities. When chiropractors speak of an extremity, we are talking about the joints of the body that are outside the spinal joints. These joints include the TMJ, ribs, upper extremity (shoulder, elbow, wrist hand and fingers), and lower extremity (hip, knee, ankle, feet and toes).

Chiropractors look at the spine for joint restrictions, misalignments, postural stresses and joint motion dysfunction. In a very similar way, extremities can have these same limitations which similarly lead to pain and an inability to fully use one of these joints. These problems may be chronic or acute and many people have great relief from their extremity adjustments.

Signs or possible symptoms of an extremity issue that can be helped by a chiropractor:

  • Extremity pain or pain in the extremity joint
  • Weakness in an extremity or joint
  • Stiffness in the extremity
  • Immobility of an extremity joint
  • Numbness or tingling in an extremity
  • Catching or locking of an extremity joint
  • Neck and/or Back pain-Yes, even neck and back pain can be exacerbated by an issue with an extremity joint.

At the Northboro Chiropractic Center, we adjust the whole body because every joint is important.
