The chiropractic approach that works with the spine can be applied to other joints in the body. All of the 200-plus bones and associated joints and articulations in the body can lose their normal motion or position. Joint damage from repetitive motion can result in pain, inflammation, and stiffness. Referred to as "tennis elbow," "TMJ," "runner's knee," or "carpal tunnel syndrome," these problems have traditionally been treated with pain medications, muscle relaxants, splints, and even surgery, often resulting in lifelong chronic pain and irritation.
The jaw, shoulder, elbow, wrist, hip and ankle can all be problem areas corrected with chiropractic care to restore normal motion, circulation, nerve function, and promote healing - without drugs or surgery.
