Chiropractic Leavenworth WA Arm Shoulder adjustment

Looking for an Extremity Adjusting in Leavenworth WA?  Extremity Adjusting is defined as adjusting any joint that is outside of the spine.

Why Extremity Adjustments are Important in Leavenworth WA

Any of these joints can cause pain and discomfort changing the biomechanics of the body and creating referred pain in the spine and body organs or vice versa. An example is when the L4 vertebra is twisted and inhibiting proper nerve function the pain is felt in the hip joints and the surrounding musculature. A similar response is with L5 you can have heel pain that is different than plantar fasciitis. Although it is misdiagnosed as plantar fasciitis. A rib that is not in its normal position will feel like a knife is stabbing you in the back. A collarbone (clavicle) will cause pain in the shoulder and cause weakness in the arms.

As you can see, it is as important to adjust the extremities as it is the spine for better health and pain-free comfort in life.
