Shoulder, Knee, Hip Injuries and Arthritis Treatment
Shoulder, Knee, Hip Injuries and Arthritis Treatment in Peoria, IL: It has been widely accepted that chiropractic care works for alleviating neck and back pain, but chiropractic adjustments are also effective at dealing with problems with other joints such as the shoulders, knees and hips.
The nerves of the arms and legs travel from the neck and low back. By restoring function to the spine, we can help to improve the communication between the joints, muscles, and nerve endings in the arms and legs to the spinal cord and brain. Muscle imbalances or weakness can put additional pressure on joints and change the way that the joint moves. This can cause pain, weakness, and other dysfunction in those joints.
Chiropractic adjustments to the arms and legs can alleviate shoulder, hip, and knee pain
Chiropractic adjustments to the extremities of the arms and legs can relieve pain symptoms and often increase the range of motion. When coupled with proper therapeutic exercise, chiropractic adjustments are even more effective at improving the range of motion in the joints and thus relieving pain and injury.
Arthritis pain relief

- Systemic arthritis including rheumatoid arthritis, lupus and gout
