With shoulder pain present in approximately 25% of the 50 and older population and youth sports participation on the rise, chiropractic care for your extremities is more important than ever. Pain occurs when there is damage to the nerves, ligaments and tendons due to overuse or injury to the area. Chiropractic care is not limited to treatment of the spine, but is also an important part of keeping extremities healthy and aligned as well.
Not only do regular extremity adjustments keep the area free from misalignment, it hydrates the joints, strengthens the joint and maintains flexibility. These adjustments are especially essential for young athletes to prevent injury and prematurely ending their involvement in sports.
