Dr. Sharon Barnum: A & A Chiropractic
Adjusting the arms, feet, legs, hands, ankles and wrists
Extremity Adjusting: Extremity adjusting occurs when chiropractors adjust the joints of the body that are outside of the spinal joints. These joints include the ribs, shoulders, elbows, wrists, hands, hips, knees, ankles and feet. Similar to subluxations of the spine, extremities can also suffer from misalignment. These misalignments can cause pain and limit a patient’s range of motion.
Possible symptoms of extremity issues that can be helped by chiropractic adjustments include:
- Chronic and acute pain in the extremity joints
- Weakness in the extremity joints
- Stiffness or immobility in the extremity joints
- Numbness or tingling in the limbs
- Catching or locking of the extremity joints
The goal of adjusting extremities is to restore the original and proper alignment of the joint. This allows it to have normal and proper function. Dr. Barnum at A & A Chiropractic has additional elective training in extremities. In fact, extremity adjusting was one of his major emphases during her education.
