Arm & Shoulder Pain
The joints in your body can lose their normal motion and position leading to symptoms of pain, swelling, and loss of function. Many people are surprised to learn that joint pain in the hand, wrist, elbow, shoulder, ankle, or knee can often be helped by chiropractic care.
When joint function is impaired, there is reduced range of motion, inflammation, calcium buildup, and scar tissue.
This can be caused from repetitive motions, improper sitting, overexertion, slips, falls, accidents, and other causes. Awareness of these types of problems has become more common with terms like “tennis elbow”, runner’s knee”, “frozen shoulder”, and “carpal tunnel syndrome.”
The traditional treatment of these problems can involve splinting the joint to reduce movement, pain medications, muscle relaxants, steroid injections, and even surgery.
Today a more common sense approach is being taken. Joint mobilization, like chiropractic care for the spine, is being used in the care of elbows, wrists, and other joints of the body. Helping to restore normal range of motion to joints that have become “locked-up”, “jammed”, or injured, leads to improved blood circulation, reduced scar tissue, and a speedy healing process.
Doctors of Chiropractic are uniquely trained to detect and help restore proper joint function of the spine and the extremities. Find out if you can be helped, by arranging for a consultation and thorough examination. Call Dr. Larson today @ 941-363-6744!
