Certified Chiropractic Extremity Practitioner
From your head to your shoulders, knees, and toes. Alignment is crucial for all joints in the body, not just the spine. Extremities are defined as joints that exist outside the Skull, ossicles of the ear, rib cage, sternum, and vertebral column. For example, joints from the shoulder out to the fingers and hips down to our toes constitute extremity joints. Misalignments in extremity joints can cause pain on their own, and are also commonly associated with chronic overuse or repetitive motion conditions such as tendonitis. They can also occur when your strain or sprain a joint.
The following is a brief example of the bones or joints that are often involved in common conditions:
- Shoulder Impingement Syndrome: Glenohumoral Joint
- Tennis Elbow: Proximal Radius
- Golfers Elbow: Proximal Ulna
- Nursemaids Elbow: Proximal Radius
- Carpal Tunnel Syndrome: Carpal Bones
- De Queirvain’s Syndrome: Thumb and Wrist Joints
- Runners Knee: Patella
- Patella Femoral Syndrome: Patella
- Shin Splints: Ankle, Heel, and Foot
- Plantar Fasciitis: Ankle, Heel, and Foot
