Pain, weakness and poor function in the joints and extremities can be difficult to diagnose and require the advanced skill of extremity chiropractic care. At Bailey Chiropractic- Sports & Accident Center, we offer patients the superior skill of creating a balance between the mechanical control system, or extremities, with the neurological system, or spine, to offer relief and restoring function. Dr. Christopher Bailey was certified as a Certified Chiropractic Extremity Practitioner in 1997 and has treated thousands of injuries to the extremities.
Injuries Needing Extremity Chiropractic Care
Misalignment, or subluxation, between the neurological and mechanical control systems, is often the reason for problems in an extremity including the wrist, elbow, shoulder, rib, jaw, knee, foot, and ankle.
An injury is the main reason for this misalignment. These injuries may include sports activities, falls, skateboarding, biking, shoveling, working out, and more. Repetitive stress is another cause of extremity injury, specifically carpal tunnel, wrist injuries, tennis elbow, repeated sprained ankles, plantar fasciitis and more.
Who Can Benefit from Extremity Chiropractic Care
The answer to this is easy: everyone can benefit from extremity adjustments and therapies, including:
Mothers and fathers in pain from parenting duties,
Children in play or sports activities
Workers who sit for long periods
Workers who stand for long periods
People who carry heavy items
People who spend long periods on a computer
Can you add more to the list?
Diagnosis of Extremity Problems
When people in pain come to visit Dr. Bailey, they have usually gone through a workup to determine if there is a fracture or other injury. If not, we will conduct a thorough examination to identify the source of pain. An issue with extremity diagnosis is that the misalignment, or subluxation, causing the pain is often invisible on an x-ray or MRI. This requires the high-level skills of a specially-trained chiropractor for diagnosis.
How You Can Tell if You Need Extremity Chiropractic Care
In addition to pain, other symptoms may indicate you need extremity care. We can treat these symptoms effectively with the combination of adjustments, tissue work, physio-therapy modalities and strengthening exercises. These extremity symptoms include: Clicking, numbness and or tingling, stiffness, weakness, immobility, and pain.
