Gentle Extremity Adjusting

We have provided excellent care for health concerns of the shoulders, arms, wrists, hands, legs, knees, ankles and feet for all 23 years of our chiropractic practice. We have taken numerous post graduate trainings in totally gentle methods to help the muscles and joints of your upper and lower extremities. There is never any twisting, thrusting or cracking sound when we work with you. We love freeing up your upper and lower extremities to feel great with the most gentle and ease producing methods.


            We have a great track record with these problems because we provide care for extremity problems with a two step methods.


            First we adjust the misalignment (subluxations) of the spine with our gentle spinal adjustment methods. We do this first because the spinal nerves go out to every cell and tissue of your shoulders, arms, hands, legs and feet, etc. The spine and spinal nerves traveling to your upper and lower extremities are like the fuse box of your house that sends wires out to all your appliances in the house. If appliances in your house are not working right, it is always a good step to first check the fuse box and then check the appliances directly. In this same way we always gently adjust the spine and free up the spinal nerves, before we gently adjust your arms and legs, etc. Many times correcting the spinal misalignments (subluxations) of the spine will automatically correct the problems in the upper and lower extremities without ever working on the extremities directly. This is the great power of correcting the spinal subluxations.


            If it is found that the spinal adjustments have not fully corrected the problem in the extremities, then we may choose to work directly at the problem area of your shoulders, arms, hands, legs, etc. We have studied and mastered many gentle methods to directly work on extremity problems. These include specific focal muscle work called trigger point therapy, active movement release techniques of the problem area, gentle tapping on muscles to release them called Primal Reflex Release Technique (PRRT), Zero Balancing, gentle instrument adjusting using the Arthrostim adjusting  instrument and therapeutic exercises. All of these techniques are totally gentle. We select which of these gentle techniques will best help your arms, hands, legs, etc that visit and do that technique after your spinal adjustment that day.
