Extremity Adjustments Cedar Park: Dr. Kyle Meers
Texas Premier Healthcare
Extremity Adjusting: Extremity adjusting occurs when chiropractors adjust the joints of the body that are outside of the spinal joints. These joints include the ribs, shoulders, elbows, wrists, hands, hips, knees, ankles and feet. Similar to subluxations of the spine, extremities can also suffer from misalignment. These misalignments can cause pain and limit a patient’s range of motion.
Possible symptoms of extremity issues that can be helped by chiropractic adjustments include:
- Chronic and acute pain in the extremity joints
- Weakness in the extremity joints
- Stiffness or immobility in the extremity joints
- Numbness or tingling in the limbs
- Catching or locking of the extremity joints
The goal of adjusting extremities is to restore the original and proper alignment of the joint. This allows it to have normal and proper function. Dr. Kyle Meers at Texas Premier Healthcare has additional elective training in extremities. In fact, extremity adjusting was one of his major emphases during his education.
I have been being treated for neck and back pain causing numbness in my hands and arms since February 2015. Dr. Meers explained and showed me in my x-rays what was causing the issues and then we discussed an agressive treatment plan. It has helped tremendously and I am still being treated for the issues as I’m aware this will be an ongoing treatment. (I have been dealing with this issue for over 7 years). Any time I came in with some other pain he discussed it with me and gave me at home exercises to help continue care on my own.
Becca and Dr. Meers have always been very pleasant to me in the office and on the phone. If I needed to change or cancel an appointment there has never been an issue. I highly recommend them for your chiropractic needs.
