Extremity Adjusting

Woman with elbow painThe chiropractic approach that works so well with the spine can be applied to other joints of your body! Almost every joint in your skeletal system is susceptible to fixations that can impair function and range of motion. These can all also be corrected with chiropractic adjustments!


Carpal tunnel syndrome is usually due to compression of the median nerve as it passes through the band of ligaments in your wrist. In many cases, the underlying cause is a misalignment of one or more joints of your neck, shoulder, elbow or wrist. Identifying the involved joint(s) and then making the needed adjustments to restore proper function to the joint can alleviate the effects, reduce pain in the area and improve range of motion!


Stress, teeth grinding and spinal problems can cause TMJ (temporomandibular joint) disorders where your jaw connects to your skull. (You can feel the joint move by placing your fingers in front of your ears and opening your mouth.) Skilled chiropractic care can restore proper nervous system control of involved muscles and ligaments, reducing pain, stiffness, clicking sounds or locked jaw.


Many shoulder problems originate in the area where the nerves branch from the spinal cord and exit the neck. Shoulder pain or pain radiating down the arm can be accompanied by weakness, numbness or tingling in the wrists or hands. Many Thrive Chiropractic & Wellness Centre patients report dramatic improvement with chiropractic care.


Classic tennis elbow (lateral epicondylitis) is a repetitive strain injury that often afflicts the dominant arm. It is seen among carpenters, mechanics, office workers, cashiers and those who perform repeated hammering, grasping and rotary forearm motions. Chiropractic care helps to reduce tension in the area, improve range of motion and restore proper function to the joint.


The hips and sacrum are the foundation of your spine. These sacroiliac joints can affect nerves exiting the spine. When we assess this area, we focus not only on the hips but also on the joints above and below the pelvis to ensure the entire body is balanced properly and functioning optimally.


The ankle is the most frequently injured joint in the body. “Pronation,” in which the feet flare outward and kneecaps rotate inward, is the most common foot problem. When weak arches cause the bones of the foot to drop to an unstable position, stress on the foot increases. Adjusting malfunctioning joints of the feet, combined with custom shoe orthotics, can reduce tenderness, improve your gait and stabilize the entire skeletal system.
