Extremity Chiropractic Care

Our Chiropractor in Shively and Dixie, KY, Can Help with Extremity Pain

When most people think of chiropractic work, they think of chiropractors adjusting their patients' backs and necks. While your back may be involved in your condition, other parts of your body may be just as much to blame, if not more so. Extremity chiropractic is the treatment of joints in your upper and lower extremities, which can include fingers, wrists, elbows, shoulders, ankles, knees, and hips. 


Benefits of Extremity Chiropractic Care

There are 3 major benefits of extremity chiropractic techniques:

  • During extremity chiropractic care, our chiropractor will manipulate specific parts of your body to bring them back into proper alignment and use. Once those joints are moving smoothly again, they will affect the other joints they are connected to. Getting proper function back in one of your extremities can affect how you move throughout the day, making you more comfortable and reducing your risk of injury.
  • Extremity chiropractic care can reduce referred pain. Caring for joints in your extremities can help reduce pain in other parts of your body. Referred pain is pain in one part of your body that is being caused by a problem in another part of your body. The most commonly known example of referred pain is brain freeze, which is caused by nerves in your throat that make you feel pain in your head. During their training and education, chiropractors learn about the paths nerves take through the body. This enables them use pressure in one part of the body to relieve pain in a completely different part of the body.
  • You may not even realize that you are avoiding certain activities because of pain or discomfort. You may stop doing certain tasks or activities without even thinking about it, finding excuses for not doing uncomfortable activities. Once you start feeling the effects of extremity chiropractic care, you will find that you are more comfortable with your favorite activities again. When you feel better, you can be more active and enjoy your life more.
