Here at O’Neill Chiropractic, we value treating each patient as an individual and look at the body as a whole unit working together from head to toe. This is why you can expect extremity evaluations and adjustments if needed at our practice. Extremity adjustments manipulate the joint of an extremity to instill motion within that joint. If you have ever experienced pain from a shoulder or wrist freezing up, you can imagine how important these adjustments can be. When your joints lose range of motion, they begin to break down over time. All joints can benefit from an adjustment in these areas including wrists, shoulders, elbows, hips, knees, ribs, ankles and even your jaw.
The goal of extremity adjusting is to assess the extremity, do an analysis, and then develop a treatment for the extremity by combining this plan with the spinal treatment plan. We aim to restore connection within the body and optimize its proper functionality.
