Extremity Adjustments Q & A

What are extremity adjustments?

While the spine is often a focus of chiropractic adjustments, the integrative nature of chiropractic care acknowledges the interconnectivity of the human body. All of your organs and systems are part of an integrated whole, and it’s not uncommon to experience symptoms in parts of your body that are far removed from the source of pain. 

Extremity adjustments focus on correcting misalignment in the joints of your arms and legs, or even your jaw. In many cases, problems with the communication between nerve receptors and your brain lead to pain. By enhancing that brain/body connection, it’s possible to reduce pain and improve your daily quality of life. 

Extremity Adjustments usually require less force than spinal adjustments, especially in the smaller joints of your body, such as your wrists and ankles. Dr. Leshaw often performs adjustments in multiple areas of your body during the same visit to reduce inflammation, enhance circulation, and boost your body’s innate healing abilities. 

What conditions can extremity adjustments treat?

Some of the most common conditions treated with extremity adjustments include:

  • Pain in an extremity joint
  • Weakness in an extremity
  • Stiffness in the extremity
  • Immobility of an extremity joint
  • Numbness or tingling in an extremity
  • Locking of an extremity joint

Extremity adjustments are meant to restore the original and proper alignment of the joint which allows it to have a normal and proper function

Dr. Nicole Leshaw at Optimal Health Spine & Wellness Clinic is one of the only chiropractors in the Normandy Park, Washington area that is adept in extremities and extremity adjustments.
