What Are Extremity Adjustments?

Spinal adjustments are essential elements of chiropractic treatment. Whether you’re dealing with a herniated disc, a pinched nerve, or a muscle strain, you can expect those spinal adjustments to do the trick. However, spinal adjustments are not the only aligning motions that can prove useful for your treatment. After diagnosing your injuries, your chiropractor may prescribe extremity adjustments instead.

The main difference between spinal and extremity adjustments is evident in the body parts they target. Spinal adjustments are focused on the various joints that run the length of your spinal column. Meanwhile, extremity adjustments address the joints outside of your spinal column. Those joints include your shoulders, elbows, hips, and legs.

An extremity adjustment is administered similarly to a spinal adjustment. First, your chiropractor will examine your extremities to check if they are properly aligned.

Once the chiropractor has confirmed the presence of the misalignments, they can start using force to manipulate those parts of your body. Despite how that may sound, you can rest assured that extremity adjustments are painless. Your chiropractor can correct those misalignments without causing you any discomfort.

Don’t dismiss the importance of the pain relief extremity adjustments can provide. Even if injuries to your arms and legs may not seem as severe as the ones affecting your spine, they can still be troublesome. They can leave you in constant pain. Properly address those injuries by working with a chiropractor.

What Are the Other Benefits That Extremity Adjustments Offer?

In all likelihood, you’re requesting extremity adjustments from your chiropractor because you need pain relief from your lingering injuries. That is the main benefit of having your extremities manipulated, but it’s not the only one you can experience.

Misalignments along the extremities can also restrict their mobility. For instance, you may have trouble raising your arm because of your shoulder injury. Flexibility issues are both annoying and inconvenient. You can eliminate them after undergoing extremity adjustments.

Issues affecting your extremities can also prevent you from achieving your peak physical condition. Even though you’ve wanted to lift weights for a long time, doing so may be impossible because of how your knees or shoulders lock up. Address those issues for good by seeking chiropractic treatment.

Extremity adjustments help you get the most out of your body. That alone should be reason enough for you to integrate them into your wellness regimen.
