man-in-plaid-holding-elbow-sq-400 (1)In the realm of chiropractic care, the spine often takes center stage. However, did you know that the principles and techniques applied to the spine can also be effectively utilized for other joints in your body? Extremity adjusting is a specialized approach that targets joints beyond the spine, offering relief and restoration to areas like the wrist, jaw, shoulder, elbow, hip, and ankle. At Body & Spine Solutions in Miller Place, Sound Beach, Mt. Sinai NY, we understand the interconnectedness of the body and how addressing these extremity joints can lead to significant improvements in overall health and well-being.


The wrist is a delicate yet crucial joint that can be susceptible to issues like carpal tunnel syndrome. Often, the underlying cause of this condition extends beyond the wrist itself, involving misalignments in the neck, shoulder, or elbow. Through precise chiropractic adjustments, these misalignments can be corrected, alleviating pressure on the median nerve and avoiding the need for invasive procedures such as surgery.


Temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorders can arise from various factors, including stress, teeth grinding, and spinal misalignments. By addressing the underlying spinal issues and restoring proper nervous system control, chiropractic care can provide relief from TMJ-related pain, stiffness, and discomfort, allowing for improved jaw function and overall quality of life.


Many shoulder problems originate from issues in the cervical spine, where nerves branch out and extend into the shoulder region. Chiropractic adjustments can help realign the spine, reducing nerve interference and alleviating shoulder pain, weakness, and numbness. Patients often experience significant improvements in range of motion and functionality with targeted chiropractic care.


Tennis elbow, a common repetitive strain injury, can affect individuals across various occupations and activities. Through a thorough examination and personalized chiropractic care plan, including adjustments and rehabilitative exercises, individuals experiencing lateral epicondylitis can find relief and regain strength and flexibility in their elbows.


As the foundation of the spine, the hips play a crucial role in maintaining overall structural integrity and stability. Issues with the sacroiliac joints can impact nerve function and contribute to hip pain and discomfort. Chiropractic adjustments aimed at realigning the hips and addressing surrounding joint dysfunction can lead to remarkable improvements in hip mobility and function.


The ankle, being one of the most frequently injured joints in the body, can benefit greatly from chiropractic care. Addressing issues such as pronation and weak arches through adjustments and custom orthotics can not only reduce pain and tenderness but also improve gait and overall skeletal alignment, promoting long-term stability and wellness.

At Body & Spine Solutions, we believe in a holistic approach to chiropractic care that recognizes the interconnectedness of the body’s various systems. While spinal health is paramount, addressing extremity joints can play a significant role in enhancing overall function and reducing pain and inflammation. Whether you’re experiencing wrist discomfort, jaw tension, shoulder pain, elbow strain, hip issues, or ankle instability, our team is here to help.
