Exploring the Benefits of Extremity & Sports Chiropractic Care

At Absolute Wellness, we also offer extremity adjustments, which are particularly beneficial for athletes and active individuals. Let’s take a look at this type of chiropractic and how it complements sports chiropractic to enhance performance and accelerate recovery.

Different Areas of Focus

Extremity chiropractic focuses on joints and limbs outside the spinal column, including shoulders, ankles, knees, wrists, and feet. Unlike spinal adjustments, which primarily aim to optimize the central nervous system, extremity adjustments target mobility issues and pain relief in the body’s limbs. These adjustments are often necessary for a comprehensive treatment plan, as they help ensure all parts of the body work harmoniously.

The Role of Extremity Care in Sports Injuries

Athletes are particularly susceptible to joint injuries such as sprained ankles and sore shoulders. Extremity chiropractic can be a game-changer in treating these issues. By correcting misalignments in the joints, chiropractic care alleviates pain and enhances the body’s natural healing processes. This is often supplemented with cold laser or ultrasound therapies, which can further speed up recovery, getting athletes back in action faster.

Comparing Treatment Options

When it comes to treating sports injuries, chiropractic care offers an excellent and effective alternative to more invasive treatments such as surgery or the long-term use of medications. While chiropractors don’t address severe injuries like torn ACLs, our natural care does a great job of managing and healing minor to moderate injuries by improving joint function and reducing pain. Adjustments can also help maintain overall body health and prevent future injuries.

When to Consider Extremity Chiropractic

New patients often undergo spinal adjustments first to stabilize the central nervous system. Targeted extremity care is considered if issues persist or specific extremity concerns are present. We can address conditions like carpal tunnel syndrome, plantar fasciitis, and general knee pain through extremity chiropractic, providing relief and improved function.
