I have had a number of patients in the past few weeks ask if I can help them with their knee pain, foot pain, wrist pain, etc.  The answer to all of those questions is YES!!

Chiropractors are well known for their ability to help back and neck pain, but most people don’t know that chiropractors are also able to help with extremity issues as well.  Chiropractors are trained in diagnosing and managing all types of musculoskeletal issues, including:

  • Headaches
  • TMJ (jaw) pain
  • Shoulder issues (eg. rotator cuff injuries, biceps tendinosis, AC joint sprains, etc)
  • Elbow pain (eg. tennis elbow, golfer’s elbow)
  • Wrist and hand pain (eg. tendinosis, sprains, trigger finger, etc)
  • Hip pain (eg. bursitis, hip flexor issues, etc)
  • Knee problems (eg. sprains, patellofemoral syndrome, Osgood-Schlatter disease, meniscal pain)
  • Ankle and foot pain (eg. sprains, plantar fasciitis, Achilles tendinosis, etc)
  • Muscle pain
  • Neck and back pain
  • Disc herniations

To diagnose any injury, a compete history of the issue will be taken, and orthopedic testing and palpation of the injury site will be performed.  Treatment for injuries may involve joint adjusting, use of interferential current or therapeutic ultrasound, soft tissue therapy, as well as home based stretching and strengthening exercises.

If you don’t see your particular issue in the above list, please ask about it.  If your condition can’t be managed with chiropractic care, I am happy to help direct you to a practitioner who will be able to help you!
