Extremity Chiropractic Care

Unlike the neck or spine, common areas people associated with chiropractic care, extremity treatment is instead focused on helping the joints of the hands and feet regain full motion again. One of the most common problems thanks to many hours in the office at a computer involves wrist and hand injuries. Walking and feet injuries happen frequently as well, especially as people grow older. Extremity chiropractic care addresses both as well as other problems people can have in their arm and leg joints. We at Dr. David W. Kuo, D.C. in Pasadena, CA, we know all about extremity chiropractic care.

Doctor and Patient

Understanding Body Mechanics Better

The body is a working, holistic system. When one part of it stops working correctly, not only does that result in signals to point out what’s going on, but other parts of the body also try to compensate. In this regard, if the primary part not working is not fixed, then the other parts can eventually suffer injury as well. This is how injuries spread from a small problem to a bigger one. Our extremity chiropractor focuses on not only the hand pain or foot pain in question but also the related body parts involved.

Body mechanics that occur when off-shifting problems also spread to soft tissue. It’s quite common that people can end up straining and pulling muscles in other areas of the arms and legs trying to offset the injury in another part of the same limb or a counterpart. For example, if one is favoring their left ankle, they are likely to put more weight on the right left. That means, under strain, the right leg could end up being injured as well in something seemingly unrelated, like the hamstring.

Chiropractic Goals in Extremity Treatment

The primary target in treatment is to help a patient regain full function and balance with the entire body, not just one part that happens to be hurting at the time. To do this, our chiropractor focuses on everything affected by the motion of a given area that has been injured. That can spread from the finger or the foot all the way to the spine. Doing so applies a solution to the cause of the problem versus just the symptoms, where the pain happens to be occurring.
