There is a common misconception that chiropractic therapy can only be applied to the neck and back. In fact, extremity adjustment is a highly effective way to ensure every area of your body is in working order. McWhorter CNR partners with one of the foremost chiropractic specialists for extremities to ensure our patients have access to all the care they could possibly need to lead their best life.
Understanding Extremity Adjusting
The idea of extremity adjustments follows the premise of “Why stop there?” Your body is made up of receptors that send signals to the brain which then tells the body how to respond. Like traditional chiropractic therapy, the goal of extremity adjustment is to restore the brain and body connect, encouraging proper function and pain relief.
While the neck and back have the most receptors and you can experience a significant impact by adjusting this area with chiropractic techniques, your entire body is interconnected. Even minor pain in an extremity can affect your overall well being. Techniques for extremity adjustment can be applied to any joints outside of the spinal column - from hips and shoulders to knees and elbows, all the way down to hands and feet.
Those with chronic use injuries and those whose localized pain stems from other sources alike can benefit from an extremity adjustment at our Denver office.
How Does An Extremity Adjustment At McWhorter CNR Work?
Dr. Jeff McWhorter, owner of McWhorter CNR, is a chiropractor who specializes in pain management and concussion rehabilitation. This is why he’s partnered with Dr. Russ Birdsall for the specialized practice of extremity adjustment. Dr. Birdsall achieved his Doctorate of Chiropractic in Kansas City. He recognized that the majority of his traditional studies focused on conditions related to the spine. The problem with this is that so many other areas of the body lack the attention they need.
With this in mind, Dr. Birdsall sought out specialized courses on extremity treatments. Throughout his studies, he became proficient in the management and treatment of a plethora of disorders that affect the shoulders, elbows, wrists, hands, hips, knees, ankles, and feet. From professional golfers to amateur runners, patients with overuse injuries in the extremities come far and wide for this hyper-focused treatment.
The Benefits Of Extremity Adjustments In Denver
One of the key benefits of extremity adjustments is the fact that it is a practice that is often neglected. Consider how much wear and tear your extremities endure, though. If you sit at a computer all day, your hands likely take a beating. If you’re a professional athlete, your knees and ankles will see significant overuse. If you’re a new parent, your shoulders and elbows are facing an entirely new livelihood.
By not addressing the regular and rigorous use of the extremities, many patients suffer from extreme joint and soft tissue pain. This affects how well you’re able to perform various tasks, from getting out of bed in the morning to throwing the game-winning pass.
In addition to addressing symptoms that often go untreated, extremity adjustments also aid in pain relief, functionality, and overall well being.
