The musculoskeletal system that functions within our body should not be handled lightly. Chiropractors like Dr. Cynthia Airhart at the Crossroads Chiropractic Clinic serving Victoria, TX, take your health seriously. We offer a range of comprehensive chiropractic services, including extremity adjustments for your improved health and well-being.
What Is an Extremity Adjustment?
Most of us know that chiropractors adjust your spine to take the pain away, but it is more complex than that. Our body is a collection of biological systems that can be affected in several ways if it suffers trauma or becomes injured.
A chiropractic adjustment focuses on the realignment of the vertebrae to:
- Improve your range of motion
- Relieve your pain
- Reduce nerve irritation
An extremity adjustment does the same but for your extremities. An extremity is a limb or other part of the body that is not the trunk, so the extremity joints include your hips, shoulders, knees, wrists, jaw, and toes.
Dr. Airhart’s Approach to Extremities and Chiropractic Care
Dr. Airhart has a particular interest in extremity adjustments and is a Certified Chiropractic Extremity Practitioner (C.C.E.P.). This means Dr. Airhart is trained to identify and treat multifaceted extremity ailments that may affect muscle strength and cause pain. In addition, we use the Global Assessment Evaluation protocol, which takes a whole-body approach to evaluation and treatment.
Dr. Airhart’s extremity experience is especially helpful for athletes who are susceptible to injuries on the sports field. A chiropractor experienced and certified in extremity adjustments is also invaluable for patients affected by repetitive motion injuries in the workplace or personal life.
