Extremity pain can be caused from numerous factors. Pain and inflammation occurs most commonly from repetitive overuse to the joints and surrounding tissues, which may ultimately lead to injuries and permanent damage. Joint pain can happen anywhere, but is most common in the hips, shoulders and knees. Without the proper recovery and treatment, injuries may be inevitable.
A chiropractor can help detect improper lifting techniques, shoulder, hip and gait imbalances, muscle weaknesses and overuse patterns. After a thorough evaluation, the chiropractor can use this information to form a specific care plan to treat, rehab and maintain proper joint health.
