Written By Dr. Jay Brodwyn & Associates on October 3, 2019

man runningYou already know that chiropractors relieve issues associated with the spine, but did you know they can also do much more than that with extremity adjustments?

Chiropractors can help relieve pain experienced elsewhere in the body, like carpal tunnel syndrome, shin splints, plantar fasciitis and more. Without surgery or drugs, chiropractors can reduce pain and inflammation in many different parts of the body to leave you feeling great. 

What are Extremity Adjustments?

Chiropractors define extremities as any joint in the body that is not directly along the spine. For example, elbows, shoulders, knees, wrists, and toes would be extremities. 

An extremity adjustment is when a certified chiropractor identifies any joint irregularity and then uses mechanical manipulations to correct those abnormalities. These manipulations can involve the chiropractor’s hands or specialized tools. Either way, the chiropractor will change the position of the joints to restore balance, reduce inflammation, and relieve pain. 

Are Extremity Adjustments Safe?

Yes. All medical and chiropractic procedures carry various amounts of risk, but that threat is limited when performed by a certified practitioner. The Mayo Clinic recommends chiropractic adjustments when appropriate, and extremity adjustments are no different. 

If the chiropractor is certified to perform extremity adjustments, there is little risk involved for the patient. Dr. Jay Baldwin and associates have over 20 years of combined experience with extremity adjustments, so you can rest easy knowing their treatment is certified and safe.
