Virtually every articulation of your skeletal system is susceptible to fixations that can impair function and range of motion. Trauma, micro-traumas, vibrations and repetitive motions can produce joint problems throughout the body.
Our therapy team will work by restoring proper motion of spinal bones and reducing nerve irritation. Other joints of the body can lose their normal motion and position as well. When our techniques are applied, range of motion can be improved and painful inflammation reduced. Without drugs or surgery!
TMJ Pain - Jaw Stress, teeth grinding and spinal problems can cause TMJ (temporo-mandibular joint) disorders where your jaw connects to your skull. (You can feel the joint move by placing your fingers in front of your ears and opening your mouth.)
Shoulder Pain - Many shoulder problems originate in the area where the nerves branch from the spinal cord and exit the neck. Shoulder pain or pain radiating down the arm can be accompanied by weakness, numbness or tingling in the wrists or hands. Many patients report dramatic improvement with chiropractic care.
Elbow Pain - Classic tennis elbow (lateral epicondylitis) is a repetitive strain injury that often afflicts the dominant arm. It is seen among carpenters, mechanics, office workers, cashiers and those who perform repeated hammering, grasping and rotary forearm motions.
Wrist Pain - Carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS) is usually due to compression of the median nerve as it passes through the band of ligaments in the wrist. In many cases, the underlying cause is a misalignment of one or more joints of the neck, shoulder, elbow or wrist. Identifying the involved joint(s) and beginning a program of chiropractic care can often help avoid surgery.
Hip Pain - The hip bones and sacrum, considered the "pelvic girdle," are the foundation of your spine. These sacroiliac joints can affect nerves exiting the spine. Chiropractic adjustments to the hips can produce excellent results.
Ankle Pain - The ankle is the most frequently injured joint in the body. "Pronation," in which the feet flare outward and kneecaps rotate inward, is the most common foot problem. When weak arches cause the bones of the foot to drop to an unstable position, stress on the foot increases. Adjusting malfunctioning joints of the feet, combined with custom shoe orthotics, can reduce tenderness, improve your gait and stabilize the entire skeletal system.
While many health problems can be traced to the spine, other joints of the body can be involved. Our Mississauga clinic has produced delighted patients by improving function without drugs or surgery.
