Extremity Adjusting in Chesapeake: Extremity adjusting refers to when chiropractors adjust the joints of the body that are outside of the spinal joints. These joints include the ribs, shoulders, elbows, wrists, hands, hips, knees, ankles and the feet. Similar to subluxations of the spine, extremities can also suffer from misalignment. These misalignments can cause pain and limit the range of motion.
Possible symptoms of extremity issues that can be helped by Accordo Chiropractic include:
- Chronic and acute pain in the extremity joints
- Weakness in the extremity joints
- Stiffness or immobility in the extremity
- Numbness or tingling in the limbs
- Catching or locking of the extremity joints
