radiating shoulder painYour joints support your body’s movements and overall functionality at any given moment. However, misalignments in various areas can hinder your joint function and limit your range of motion. Here’s a look at some common joint misalignments and how chiropractic care may help.


Carpal tunnel syndrome often occurs when the median nerve gets compressed within the ligaments of your wrist. Surprisingly, the underlying cause may not lie solely within the wrist itself. Misalignments in your neck joints, shoulder, elbow, or wrist joints can contribute to this condition. By identifying the involved joint(s) and creating a personalized chiropractic care program, we can often alleviate discomfort and avoid the need for surgery.


Stress, teeth grinding, and spinal issues can lead to temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorders. You can identify this condition by placing your fingers in front of your ears and opening your mouth, feeling the joint move. Skilled chiropractic care can restore proper nervous system control over the muscles and ligaments involved, reducing pain, stiffness, clicking sounds, and a locked jaw.


Did you know that many shoulder problems originate from issues in the neck? When nerves branch out from the spinal cord and exit the neck, they can affect the shoulders. Pain in the shoulder or radiating down the arm may be accompanied by weakness, numbness, or tingling in the wrists or hands. Many patients have experienced dramatic improvement with chiropractic care for their shoulder issues.


Tennis elbow, or lateral epicondylitis, is a repetitive strain injury commonly affecting the dominant arm. It can impact individuals in various professions, such as carpenters, mechanics, office workers, cashiers, and those who perform repetitive forearm motions. Through a thorough examination followed by appropriate chiropractic care, excellent results have been achieved in managing this condition.


The hips and sacrum, collectively known as the “pelvic girdle,” form the foundation of your spine. Misalignments in the sacroiliac joints can affect the nerves exiting the spine. While chiropractic adjustments of the hips have proven effective, it’s essential to consider malfunctioning joints above or below the pelvis as potential contributors to hip problems.


The ankle joint is highly prone to injuries and is often the most commonly injured joint in the body. One common foot problem, known as “pronation,” involves the feet flaring outward and kneecaps rotating inward. Weak arches can cause the foot bones to become unstable, leading to increased stress on the foot. By adjusting malfunctioning foot joints and incorporating custom shoe orthotics, tenderness can be reduced, your gait can improve, and the stability of your entire skeleton can be enhanced.
