Millions of people go to the chiropractor for back pain, but many people don’t know that chiropractors can also help with knee pain, ankle pain, shoulder pain, and hip pain. More than 7 million adults in the United States have knee or hip replacements. Chiropractic care can offer a safer, less invasive solution.
What do chiropractors do?
Chiropractors adjust the joints of the spine when they become misaligned (these misalignments are called “subluxations”) to aid in the neurological function of the body. Adjustments help the spine and nerves function better and often help with the associated pain.
How does it work on the other joints of the body?
Chiropractors are trained to adjusted every joint in your body, from your pinky toe to your jaw. Just like spinal bones, when knees, hips, shoulders, etc. get out of alignment, the arthritic process begins and they can become painful. By adjusting and realigning these joints, the arthritic process can be slowed and pain can be aleviated. These adjustments are gentle and most people really enjoy them.
