Not many people realize that chiropractors are trained in helping manage problems with extremity joints (such as knees, ankles, shoulders, elbows, wrists etc.).
Whether the joint pain or injury was from sport, work or at home, your chiropractor will thoroughly assess your joint issue to find the cause of the problem.
In addition to this, joint pain can sometimes be referred – the cause of the pain originates elsewhere in the body and not in the joint itself.
Nerve problems originating from the spine may be a cause of referred joint pain. In this case your chiropractor will assess your spine in addition to your problematic joint, and advise you on management strategies to help you improve as quickly as possible.
