Sports and Extremity Chiropractic
Dr. Eddy and Dr. Bridgewater have specialized training when it comes to treating the upper and lower limbs of the body. They understand that for your spine to have healthy structure and, in turn, a healthy central nervous system, the limbs must be in proper alignment as well.
Your body is much like a house. It needs a steady foundation underneath the house for it to be a “healthy” house. Your feet, knees, and hips are the foundation of your spine. If one of these have misalignments, it is like having a fault in your foundation. Repetitive trauma from walking, running, or jumping on a “faulty” foundation can lead to misalignment in your low back, mid-back, or even in your neck. This is why Dr. Eddy and Dr. Bridgewater always start at the feet when treating you.
Your upper limbs are mostly supported by muscles that attach into your spine. A misalignment of your shoulder blade, upper arm, or lower arm can alter the biomechanics that will pull on the shoulder muscles and, in turn, on your spine. Dr. Jenna and Dr. Eddy use specific adjustments to restore the proper biomechanics of the shoulder blade, upper arm, forearm, and wrist. This relaxes the muscles in your shoulder blade and prevents them from pulling on your spine, making your spinal corrections last longer!
Dr. Eddy also has special training from the renowned Dr. Mitch Mally. This extra training makes Dr. Eddy an expert on lower and upper extremity adjusting.
These specific adjustments to the foot, ankle, leg, and thigh have had great results in treating conditions such as:
- plantar fasciitis
- tarsal tunnel syndrome
- knee pain with and without meniscus or ligament injury
- hip pain and calf pain
- shin splints
Adjusting the wrist, forearm, upper arm, and shoulder blade has had great results in treating conditions such as:
- carpal tunnel syndrome
- cubital tunnel syndrome
- elbow and wrist pain
- tennis elbow
- golfer’s elbow
- thoracic outlet syndrome
- rotator cuff injury recovery
- paresthesia or numbness of the upper extremity.
Sports play a big toll on our body and can place big stresses on our musculoskeletal system. While some stresses may be beneficial to help grow muscle tissue and strengthen ligaments that prevent injury, sports also subject you to injury. Sports Chiropractic is essential for fast recovery after injury, ensuring perfect biomechanics to avoid injury, and to enhance the performance of your musculoskeletal system for your sport. There is a reason why every NFL team has a licensed Chiropractor on staff. Chiropractic care will give you the EDGE on your competition, and help you meet personal bests!
