How Adjustments Can Help Your Lower Extremities

running knee painWhile many people automatically think of back and neck pain relief when you mention chiropractic, did you know that chiropractic adjustments can help with extremity issues? Our adjustments can help address pain and other issues in the following lower extremities:

  • Ankles
  • Feet
  • Hips
  • Knees

How Chiropractic Helps

By adjusting the lower extremities, those parts of the body can function better. We also will still adjust the spine. Why? Because if the spine is out of alignment, it can affect the hips, which in turn, can affect the knees and feet. Because chiropractic can take care of the spine and the extremities, you’re increasing the chances of everything functioning at its best and decreasing the chance of injuries and other issues.

At Greensboro Chiropractic, we use both hands-on and instrument-assisted methods to adjust extremities.

Can Chiropractic Address Pinched Nerves?

Yes. For example, if you have knee pain, it could be originating from the nerves in the lumbar spine because the nerves from the lumbar spine go to the knee. So that’s what we look to—the cause in the spine, where the nerve roots originate from. And we find it helps with the knee healing and recovering and the pain subsiding.

The Importance of Taking a Preventative Approach

By maintaining the health of our knees now, we decrease the chances of having to have knee replacements. Moreover, if we maintain the health of our spine and hips now we will decrease the chance of having hip replacements down the road. If we’re doing things proactively for our lower extremities, such as getting the spine and the extremities checked, that can lead to improved health down the road.
