Chiropractors are mainly thought as people who work on back issues, or the back specialist. This is a true statement, but there is much much more that a Chiropractor can do outside working on your back pain.
One major part of the body Chiropractors can treat is extremities pains, or arm and leg pains. This is not limited to just older patients, this can be the in-shape runner, the carpenter, or the grandmother looking to garden. Pain that is muscular or bone generated, a Chiropractor can treat, that is what we are looking for in the back, and the same ideas apply to the arms and legs.
Keeping these pains in check is a very easy part of your life we can keep in check by properly strengthening the areas, or making sure the technique used when using those muscles or if the the muscles are properly working through a functional test. This can be either for the shoulder, elbows, wrists, hands, hips, knees, or feet. It all depends on the issue and what we can do to help you get the pain under control.
