Extremity Adjusting

Extremity adjusting is also an option here at Central Heath Chiropractic. Doctor Jake has experience in treating a vast array of arm and leg conditions. Chiropractic adjustments are a natural way to relieve pain vs pain pills. Prolonged use of even over the counter pain medications can cause problems throughout the body. The only side effect of a chiropractic adjustment is a small chance of soreness for a few days following the adjustment.

Degeneration and Arthritis.

Every joint in the body is susceptible to degeneration when there are structural or bio mechanical problems within the joint complex. When a joint doesn’t move properly, commonly from misalignment issues, the body attempts to seal it off and eliminate motion completely. This is how arthritis progresses. This process can start as early as age 25. For example, we are seeing many young adults with arthritis and degeneration in their upper backs from technology over use. In addition, carpal tunnel is developing in younger ages from technology as well.

Often times, spinal joints and extremity joints undergo degeneration and arthritis in different ways. While spinal joints are often conditions of under use, extremity joint degeneration progresses through over use. Keep in mind, just because you use a joint often does not mean it is doomed to arthritis. Degeneration and arthritis only progress in a joint that is not moving properly or is misaligned. This adds additional stress on the joint. The chiropractic adjustment relieves this stress and tension and allows joints to move properly and avoid arthritis. This is why it is so imortant for your chiropractor to examine all of your joints. In conclusion, degeneration, like a cavity, often progresses without you even being able to feel it.
